    Different strokes for different folks.
    Something about his eyes, the make up and the over the top look, the outlandish costumes. I just don't see him as rugged, classic, overly masculine, natural beauty at best exotic but even than he sometimes look more gangsta than aesthetically pleasing. I remember one outfit he wore with his overworked hair it was like electric cowboy meets disco meets walmart meets japanese drama boy meets MAC meets grunge meets the day after too much partying - not an overly attractive look to me.

That explains a couple of his lackluster performances back in the days, to me in a way.
    LOL, why am I not surprised. I've always been impressed how Daisuke's elaborate hairdos manage to stay in place even after all that jumping and spinning he does in competitions. If I could speak Japanese, I would totally ask him what kind of hair products he uses.

    Skater Boy, speaking in defense of Daisuke, he has never worn makeup.
    He does shave his eyebrows because his are too bushy for a Japanese boy, though.

    I have to agree with you on the above.
    Cyber swan, right? Was not my favorite Dai, either.

    Indeed, welcome noskates! We hope you post long and often!

    What a lovely story about Stephane

    I was lucky enough to see Dai's Electric Swan live. It was a wonderful program, and far better live than on TV. Who can tell about hair products when you are sitting 11 rows up? That's when I became a fan of Dai's

    I think Dai has such a magnetic quality that makes people can't take their eyes off him When you watch him skate, you see that he's packaged so well from head to toe so accordingly to the theme of programs.

    We cannot forget Peter Tchernyshev. I ran into him at a local supermarket and he was so beautiful he almost didn't seem real. He and Naomi were a stunning pair.

We were in the bar at the Empress Hotel and he walked in with his coach, girlfriend, and I don't know who else. I called a waiter over and unbeknownst to my friend, sent Stephane a drink. When the waiter delivered it to him he asked who sent it, etc. He came over and very graciously thanked us. He was so cute and so polite. My friend couldn't even get a word out - she was so shocked. We congratulated him on his skate and told him how much we enjoyed his skating - especially his spins. He was just so humble and so nice. I've been a diehard fan ever since.

    p.s. thank you for the welcome. I've been searching for a place to talk about skating.
    If you want to talk skating, you've come to the right place! And your Stephane story is delightful. What a wonderful experience. If I weren't already a diehard Lambiel fan, I'd become one after hearing how courteous and warm he is with fans.

    I've seen that Charlie White trims his tresses every summer; is Rippon known to have a similar habit?
