    We were at the GPF when he hit the boards and almost did a Midori. There was a collective sigh in the audience. Some people we were with in our hotel met his parents and apparently they were not surprised at Patrick's antics!

    I dont know whether I have ever said this here but last year we were able to go to the Margaret Garrison Awards and get on ice centre ice tickets. I was spell bound by Patrick's feet and speed. At close quarters and the soft whisper of his blades his skating was stunning. We could have gone to the banquet and met him as well but I was really exhausted that night and home beckoned. I kept calling this year hoping he would be at the event as well but didnt go since he wasnt there.

    I don't think Patrick's parents are ever surprised by anything! They are always so and a rock for Patrick.

    Not surprised with emdee's close up experience with Patrick's skating. We hear it over and over from people who know skating, and those who don't, and even from a distance. I remember a Chinese fan of Kozuka and Takahashi who went to Beijing GPF described that, as soon as the final flight came on the ice, one just could not miss Patrick as he stood out with his every move. Some judges say they could watch him just skating around the rink all day.

    Patrick tries an ethnic tribute to japan and lands on two feet. That would be the headline I think to Pchiddy's fashion attempt at the summer kimono. And yes it would be a two foot landing because I don't know how he really could skate in that outfit unless there were some slits in the side and they were risque high (thigh). The color is "meh" seen that done that. In fact it looks like a replica of out of work actress Susan Lucci's black and white dress she wore to some Broadway show (too bad people I am techno challenge and can't download but it was circa 2011 and Patrick is so 2012 so this was a bit of a disappointment.l But seriously the color didn't do much and the obi or belt well it did accentuate his petite waist line at least and I loved he fact the didn't show too much chest (hairy or not). He seems to have added some lenght to his hair; I do think he needs to conditon and moisturize his locks; sometimes it looks a little dry - folks be thankful he doesn't have long hair - it would be split endz city I bet. You have to baby your hair and PChiddy seems rather low maintenace compared to those High Maintenance Boys like Johnny Weir. Remember I said the kimono look cold work for Patrick but the right fabrick and color is key too. But folks no need to call the fashion police - yet

    Who needs fashion police? Skater Boy is in the house!

    Speaking of high maintenance, I searched for a very impressive pic twitted by Johnny Weir recently that I came across and found these two:

    I will remain in the low maintenance spectrum with Pchiddy. Thank you very much.

    Patrick is now a dishy side dish - of course for us he is the main attraction.

    Sure he is!

    I found this photo of Patrick in new outfit.

    Such incredibly deep edges

    BTW they threw a party for the skaters and their fans after ''Dreams on Ice'' show on Sunday.
    I heard Patrick made a short speech in Japanese to express his gratitude for his fans and he was one of the most popular skaters there, surrounded by lots of people who want to have a picture taken with him

    I think we need the fashion police. What was Pchiddy thinking. Did he think he was cleaning out a barn? And those jeans with that plaid shirt - HELLO people do you not see the fashion faux pax???? Come on - really a black based grey pair of jeans with a blue based plaid shirt - not appropriate, not good, not a fashion winner! Looks like he needs some help from JLO to work on his "booty" so he can fill those jeans too. Very disappointed in Pchiddy. Fashion icons across the world undoubtedly have lowered the flags and put on their darkest Gucci, Pucci or maybe even Susan Lucci sunglasses! I know we all have hard it before - wear blue based grey with blue and black based grey with black! Do not cross the line of refined and good taste to the evil side. You might as well wear spandex with chartreuse sequins in the fall. Not a good thing or look!!!!!!!!!

    Oh SkaterBoy - you made me lol again! I thought he looked cute and hunky in those jeans, etc. And I didn't have my Gucci, Pucci OR Lucci sunglasses on. Can't you appreciate the way he "wears" those jeans?

    Patrick has been churning out show programs like a factory. No time for a fussy designer like Tuly who needs deep research for a costume. Pretty easy to stop by a Cowboy Outfitter on the high way to the airport, eh?

    Our JBC reported that he was a chick magnet at the banquet, whatever he was wearing. So, eat your hearts out, fashion icons.

    Patrick finished the DOI show in Japan on the 17th and he was at the Queen E Diamond Jubilee Gala in Toronto on the 18th! Quite a seasoned traveller now, isn't he? He used to not travel well and lost the oversea GPF.

    Wonder what he wore at the event? We need a photo for our in house fashion critic!

    When did Patrick become a side dish?

    Hey, I just found a Patrick's fan website (you may have visited it before). This fan takes the time to post Patrick's protocols and tech details. Let's email this self-professed Patrick-fan geek our appreciation. http://chantastic.org/index.html

    Wow~ I love these two! Patrick looks so cute in these pics Thank you, SF.
    As you said, he does have a magnetic charm whatever he chooses to wear, which many Japanese people have gradually come to notice, I think.

    The good ting about Patrick's exhibition look it can take you from the skating rink to the mall to school to the club and still be versatile enough to clean out the barn I like the bracelet but I think he could have rocked the look with better fitting and darker jeans and perhaps a leather braided necklace with say some kind of stone. Oh and a nice fitted clean cut bomber in lambskin leather would help too. I like the v neck t instead of a round neck - very de riguer - I suppose he has SOME satorial splendour but Patty's seems to play it pretty safe. He's no Johnny Weir or Brad Pitt in the dress department. I have to say Pchiddy has a very down to earth approach to dressing; he's one of the guys. I love the little video clip someone showed of him hanging with sick kids = he seemed to be in his element although I am not sure how comfortable he is with arts and crafts lol. Is it true he plays the piano? If Patrick ever heads to my neck of the woods I could take him out for a free image consulting session.

    Yes, he does play piano, but he's no virturoso....there's a vid somewhere of him playing but I'm too tired to post it right now. I like his "casual" style, and perhaps because that latest program is so new, he hasn't had time to costume it properly yet...Hoo nose!!!
