  1. Hi! Quick packing question: I only have room for one pair of boots in my carry on - should I bring rain boots or leather boots? There will be some rain but I don't know if it will be that bad... My leather boots are cuter and I can wear then when it's not raining but the rain boots will be perfect if there's a lot of rain on Friday. I can't decide haha, any suggestions?

    Thank you so much! I just downloaded the clip from the mega.nz site but I can't open the file with quicktime or imovie for some reason?? Any ideas? It looks like that folder has a ton of great footage and I'd love to be able to see it!
  4. Thanks for the advice everyone! I don't think I'll have time to make the pins after all, so maybe I'll just bring candy or something lol. I'll see if I can get a small-ish Japanese flag and just write Yuzu's name on it or something. And good idea to bring something to keep my legs warm. I actually really hate being cold, but for a chance to see Yuzu skate I'll handle any temperatures! I'm pretty shy so I doubt I'd talk to any skaters even if I saw them haha, but seeing them at a distance would be great!
  5. Hi! I need some advice from people who've gone to comps before, any tips appreciated! Plushies/gifts - I'm bringing a pooh bear, but I'm guessing I'll have to get out of my seat to be close enough to throw it? (I'm in C3 row 14, the side the judges are on) Will I drive everyone on my row nuts if I get up after 2 or 3 performances to throw something on the ice? I was thinking of bringing things for other skaters too. Or should I just put things in the gift boxes for each skater I heard they have at these things. Flags - I was thinking of buying a Japanese flag to hold up when Yuzu's done skating but my husband thinks it would be weird since I'm American... but I said it would be weird to hold up an American flag after Yuzu skates, lol. Should I try something else instead? If I can find the time I was hoping to make something to share/give away to other fans I meet - I was thinking of the round badges/pins people put on bags (the kind with a safety pin in the back). I could just print out pics of Yuzu from the internet and use those - but do you think people would be upset since they're not pics I took myself? I wouldn't sell them, just give away for free, like just 20 or so to be nice. I can't draw so I thought of this. Meeting other skaters - I know Yuzu doesn't meet fans but if I could I'd love to meet Junhwan Cha, Jason Brown, or Boyang Jin. Do they do any type of meet and greet? If not, any tips on meeting them? I'd never be rude, loud, or bother them if they're obviously not wanting to talk, just wondering how other fans have met skaters. Any other newbie tips? Thanks in advance!! I'm so excited I can't stand it! Only about a week and a half to go!!

    Hi! I'm trying to find the "extended" version of Yuzu and Javi hugging at the olympics after Javi's FS in that back room where they wait for the scores. All the ones I can find (official NBC type footage) only show part of that footage, but there's a longer cut that shows Yuzu's arms around Javi's neck while he's crying right before the part where he's only got his head on his shoulder. This tweet has a video of most of it, but I'd love to have a copy that I can either watch on YT or download: https://mobile.twitter.com/aaiyu/status/965272297845145602 Sorry if that's a weirdly specific request, haha. I just remember seeing it live and it was really moving, but later I couldn't find it online. I thought I'd ask before downloading all 11 GB of the video @Raomina has and searching through it, lol. Thanks!
  7. To those who have been to competitions before: Will there be merch stands at the venue? As in things for sale (keychains, photos, etc.) of the skaters? What about things to throw in the rink like plushies/flowers? Wondering if I should save room in my bag to bring anything home.
  8. Just throwing this out there - if anyone is coming from Japan and is able to buy some of the new Xylitol clear files with Yuzu and bring them to Helsinki I will GLADLY pay (and over the original price) for them.
  9. Just wondering - what is everyone bringing? This will be my first competition and I know some people make pins, cards, or have a small banner or flag they hold. I'd like to bring something too but not sure what. Any suggestions?
  10. Hi Everyone! Helsinki is coming up so soon, I can't wait! Just wanted to share that I have a Bronze all event ticket I'm selling for 50% off, and would be willing to split it up into individual days. I'm going to be there and am willing to sell it online or there in person, either way. Please message me if you or someone you know is interested, thanks!!
  11. Agreed, I'm a bit confused... and the Thursday practice just says all day? What time do we get there? And I'm guessing there's no way to know when specific skaters will practice so we should just bring snacks and be prepared to camp out in our seat all day? (I would do that if it means seeing Yuzu!)
  12. Thanks for sharing, I saw someone on their FB page who was upset that Gala practice wasn't open to the public - is it usually? Also, what are everyone's thoughts on the assigned seats for practices? I don't have any experience with it either way, just wondering.
  13. Awesome thanks so much! I stayed at an Airbnb at a sento during part of my visit to Japan, it was mostly little old ladies using it but I'm glad it was still around for me to try it!
  14. I'm in Raleigh, been here for a few years but grew up on the coast. Are you closer to Boone or Winston-Salem? I've got family near WS.
  15. Thanks for the helpful tips, for some reason I thought it would be a snowy winter wonderland in November... but I'm from North Carolina so I don't have much experience with snow, haha. I really want to try Finnish sauna! Not sure if my hotel has one so if not I might have to try a public one. Can you recommend any good spots? I did onsen in Japan and Turkish bathhouses in Budapest so this is next on my list!
