Cathy Reed and Chris Reed, NHK Trophy 2012 (Free Dance)

MY GOD THAT’S LOUD. I… I might love it?

Okay, bear with me here. I think the black lines separating the bright colors on Cathy’s dress are what make this for me. It’s like 50s mod style meets stained glass. And HOW MUCH do I love that Chris is wearing a matching loud tie here? I wish he had matching cuffs too, honestly, but I’ll take a tie.

Also this is to THE BEATLES. How much do I wish more skaters went this flashy when they skated to popular music that will probably get flagged on YouTube as copyright infringement? 

Grade: You know what? A+, if for no other reason than that this is a Beatles skate.

Hi! You posted a page titled 'Hope & Heartbreak.... Japanese nationals ushers in a new era' from IFS OLYMPIC SPECIAL MAGAZINE. I can't find it anywhere. Can you post it so that we can read it? The words are too small to read in that post. Thanks in advance!!

It was a free edition limited to app store so I only have a miniature version on my iPod.  I typed it out instead (click read more) SO LONGGG. Here is the post we are talking about to those who don’t know.

Hope & Heartbreak - Japanese Nationals Ushers in a New Era

Yuzuru Hanyu has enjoyed the most successful season in his young career.  In Saitama, he showed that if he performs up to his potential at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, next month, he will be a force to be reckoned with.

World Team Trophy 2015 in Tokyo, Japan

last thursday, i went to WTT 2015. lemme tell you, i spent nearly 90 dollars on merchandise (not including the ticket price) and i got home at around 10 at night but it was literally the most fantastic experience ever. guys, i can’t tell you how amazing it was. 

i originally was not planning to go to WTT, but after worlds i just had a gut feeling that mr. hanyu would show up at WTT this time so i scored tickets before they announced team japan’s members. you might be able to tell that my seat was definitely not the best in the house (i was seated on the second floor in the very very back) but as it was my very first competition experience ever i think it was plenty good. in the last picture it might seem like there weren’t that many people, but i took the pic during intermission so lots of people were out of their seats. trust me when i say that the stadium was literally packed full of people.

i was there on thursday (the first day) so i saw the ice dance- short dance, ladies’ singles- short program, and men’s singles- short program. i unfortunately had school before the competition began so i missed the opening ceremony, but thankfully i was able to see it later on tv (: 

for those of you who are planning on attending any figure skating events (especially japan) i hope this serves as a nice little survival guide-esque thing!
