    Bravo Mao! Bravo Lori!! I think videos are coming soon since a Japanese TV is air the show tomorrow.
    Thank you for your first-hand report. I can't wait to see the program. I think we saw the costume in some of the photos. Can you please confirm what the costume looked like? So glad to hear you think Lori's choreography suited her.

    ETA: Just read a few of the previous posts. Sounds like it's the costume trimmed in gold? (for the EX)

    The costume for EX is the one roma posted. http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/p...1686991-0.html
    Seeing the photo, it may look too decorative, but I thought it brings out the Middle Ages-ish mood and blends in with the music.

    I think Lori did a great job this time


    PS The theme of the ex is probably baroque dance.

    FINLANDIA?!

    OMG the stars have aligned to create my best year EVER for attending FS competitions!

    I was already planning to go to Finlandia...
    And I am going to Trophee de France where Mao is assigned...
    And if she makes it to the Grand Prix final in Marseille, I'll see her there...
    And if she's in the World's team for Helsinki, I'll be there too!

    Seeing Mao compete 4 times in one season... that would be beyond my wildest dreams!!!

    I have seen that Twitter is pretty exploding to gush about her outstanding new EX program.
    As you said, people who have watched it are excited speaking that it can be a masterpiece!! Anyway, thanks for reporting us about your view.

    It's a beautiful and unique EX. So detailed and difficult but so beautiful. Even when it still looks a bit raw right now it is really something else. What more when Mao grows even more accustomed to it. It will be mesmerizing.

    And those arms. omg! They're even more noticeable in the longer version of Bolero. Even better now.

    Gorgeous, isn't it?! Love the music, the choreography, the costume, the light & airy steps, the soft arms. Just love Mao - period. Still a little bit of a work in progress right now, but this is going to be a really powerful piece for her as she polishes it more and more...Thank you so much Mao for coming back!!!
