And how are they usually distributed among skaters on such events- I mean is there any preference in design or pattern used on fabric? I hope it doesn't sound rude to ask?

    You can have Yukata in any color you like --and any pattern. It's a light-weight traditional garb that you usually see during the summer time festivals and parties etc. You also see them a lot in onsens. I'm not sure when these are given out...maybe it's the costume for the after show banquet? There are certainly trends in Yukatas though.

    The yukata clothing for skaters at DOI were sponsored by SOU・SOU, a brand based on Kyoto, Japan. The designer mentioned Yuzu chose the style of yukata himself.

    See more at SOU・SOU website

    Their new styles of 2014 for lady are quite attractive to me!

    As a Japanese, I didn't even notice mens yukata is always of dark colors

    Actually, in the old days, dark color, that is indigo, was mainly used for girls yukata too, because yukata was a casual wear, and other colors were a kind of luxury. It was used as night clothes after repeated washing, then used as baby's diaper, rags, etc. Girls yukatas were not colorful as the ones you see these days either.

    Anyway, I see mens yukata in dark colors very masculine and cool.

    Edit: I like his yukata of the last year more.

    So far:
    Type of personalities
    Who is grass and who eats eat
    About Yukatas
    Lot´s of music
    Chopin´s ballade stories
    Types of food in Japan
    Digestive track diseases
    When you plant a tree in Japan
    The history and prestige of Waseda University
    Types of earphones
    How many versions of Romeo & Juliet music there are
    Choreographers

    Thorse out of the top of my mind

    I am definitely considering the GPF. I'm familiar with Barcelona, having spent more than one holiday there in the past few years, and would love to visit it in the winter for a change. :-)

    Actually, I learnt myself, through "blood types", "grass-eater, meat-eater", "S type-M type" talks, that Japanese are the people who really like to categorize things or people

    So, next time Yuzuru is categorized in something, guys, don't worry too much. It's just a Japanese habit

    Thank you! I thought they receive the certain number of Yukatas and have to choose from those to wear. So I was surprised men wore only dark colours and Yuzu seemed to have the most festive kind of Yukata. I loved it so much, I'd wear it myself.

    Wow, thank you so much! I went through all the models trying to figure how they'd look on me. But honestly- Yuzu's Yukata is the best on my taste. I wonder why they didn't bring the dark green and dark red design, those look very interesting on their website.

    Thank you so much for the details, quite an intersting read! Oh, if there were indigo ones... I'd totally wear an indigo coloured Yukata (with a simple embroidery like the one Javi wore last year). That colour looks kind of regal you know, expensive one. It was very interesting to read that the traditional Yukata is of the basic simple dark colours and are used till the fabric is gone in pieces.
    I actually loved both Yukatas Yuzu wore last year and this year, they both seem to look fresh and elegant, suit him a lot. Plus this year Yukata with those flowers- they look like little Sun symbols, quite suitable for him as a reigning King of Figure Skating. Or shall I say- the young FS Emperor?

    Haha we should do a Yuzuru fan girl meet up as we attempt to coordinate our posters for the GPF....

    Do you know what the weather will be like in December? I heard it's not much different from the East coast, which is where I'm planning on traveling from.

    I've only been to Spain once (somewhere around Almeria) but I'm not a big fan of hot places, so I guess I'd probably like it better in the winter anyway Besides, with a flight time of 2 hours Barcelona is practically within spitting distance and the air fare is usually no more than 150€, so I'm definitely more than just considering this.

    don't know about the weather and don't know if this helps you in any way, but here's some kind of weather log for Barcelona

    Hello everyone! I've found this forum not too long ago and have been trying to read as much as possible as I'm fairly new to figure skating.

    I'm also considering to go see GPF this year. Having said that, I'm not sure if I can afford the time to go. 2015 World would be a better time for me, but I suppose tickets would be hard to get because Yuzu has a lot of fans in China whereas figure skating is not as popular in Spain yet. Actually, I really really wish he can either go for Skate Canada or Skate America instead. :P
