According to the tweet, in 2008 there was a survey among male skaters, and one question was to name your favorite pair & dance team. About half the people leaved a blank, but Yuzu answered it: Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao, Oksana Domnina & Maxim Shabalin.

So our mushroom already followed pairs & dance back then! And he said in CiONTU that he watched Shae-Lynn compete and that was pre-2003. A true long-time fs fan!

I find it strange that Yuzu has very simple casual fashion sense in day to day life but almost johnny weirish lady gaga sparkle, glamorous fashion sense for skating costumes.

It's the complete opposite to his normal day fashion style :darklordyuzu:

Dr. Jekill and Mr. Hyde perhaps? Same as in giggly and murder face .. I feel it worth to go deep into the topic

 

Hi! I am new as well and trying but not sure anymore in whether I can conquer all 4001 pages - I started and now on 380 pages:headdesk: .... then I realised that I just have to keep up with the current conversations and decided to go to 3950 and be updated... So now I am in two different places on the same thread:3: well.. we'll see how it goes.

Congrats on 4000 pages!

Wow I had no idea he watched both pairs and Ice Dance so consistently!

 

There was also a Youtube Profile link of Yuzu a while back in 2016 (yyskater), so if that's him maybe he made the account to watch figure skating on youtube since then (2011). 

Although you can watch youtube without signing in, I like to think that he is a youtube watcher like the rest of us!

He prolly has that Mark Zuckerberg/Steve Jobs thingy: has many similar casual clothes as it takes less effort to mix and match. That way he can dedicate most of his brain power toward his art.

I'm sure Johnny Weir had some influence on his fashion sense, but I wonder if he also gets it from what he sees on TV?

 

I watch some Japanese shows and TV, and Johnny's Entertainment boybands and actors are everywhere.  Compared to large amounts of feathers, furs, SUPER-bling, glitter,  ruffles, draperies, in your face and just "WHAT the??" costumes I have endured from Johnny's talents over the years, Yuzu's costume are almost normal to me. The very first program of Yuzu I saw was R&J 2 , and I didn't find the costumes to be out of the ordinary.  It was only later when I read people's complaints about boob skirts and that I went back and realised "oh there is actually lace on it" (I didn't even register the first time lol).

 

I have always wondered at the Japanese boyband costumes, but then maybe girls actually like it? Many years ago I went on exchange to Japan high school for a month, and the excessive amount of bling and rhinestones encrusted on the girls' mobile phones and accessories shocked me - like just soooo much. Also the English teacher there was shocking too. I only knew very basic Japanese and I understood the Japanese teacher better than the English teacher (her grammar and accent made no sense to me, and English is my first language :xD: ) Hence, I completely understand Hanyu's English struggle if that was what he had to grow up with...

Me too! Arashi (although they also have some great costumes) desensitized me to Yuzu's costumes! As well as the weird and flamboyant clothing from anime and live actions. So I didn't bat an eye at Yuzu at first.

 

But honestly I think some Japanese people may also find JE outfits over the top. But that's what JE aims for imo. A performance needs a peformance costume, and it probably has roots in theater, and after a while I prefer costumes than none at all.

 

Edit: I think Yuzu puts extra work into his costumes because he has a similar view in that it is part of the peformance. If I was a skater, a good costume would be a good way for me to flip the switch to on mode too.

This reminds me of that whole discussion when some fans argued Hanyu is challenging gender norms by using "feminine" costumes and others responded that it's probably nothing intentional because the standards of "masculinity/femininity" are somewhat different in Japan. Personally I agree with the latter viewpoint. Japan simply has different conventions, especially in the arts. Ofc Yuzu's costumes are more over the top than many other male skaters' but I don't think that's because he is particularly interested in challenging gender norms, it's just his style and it's not seen as a big deal in Japan. I mean of course we don't know his personal motivations, but afaik he's never talked about gender norms in any interviews and I don't think it's really an issue he thinks about a lot when choosing costumes. It seems to me that he's in touch with both his masculine and feminine sides and can make any costume his own  :10636614:
