I think Mirai should go back to last years programs. I just don't like her current programs. They just are not as good as the programs she had last year. They are just boring to me. :(

I don't mind her LP (I just don't love Geisha), but I wish her SP was really an Eastwick program.

It's a little late for that. She should focus on her training and peaking for Nationals (and hopefully Worlds).

No. The more I see them, the more I like them. Hope she polishes them to a nice shine for Nationals.

I like Mirai's programs. I just wish her costumes had about 3 more inches added to the skirt length in back. Her costumes are starting to look 2 sizes too small...like Caro's.

And get rid of the over-the-boot tights!!! White skates only!!!

No, they're not as good as last year's programs, but they've still been well-received internationally (now whether she skates well is another matter). So I don't think it's necessary to get new programs or go back to last year's. Just grin & bear it... next season will come soon enough.

Mirai's costumes aren't too short, that's just the way she's built, she has a very short torso and long legs and her dresses just accentuate that. Long skirts seem to make most skaters look matronly so I hope she doesn't get longer ones.

Her LP is fine I think but I really wish she'd go back to Pirates of the Caribbean for her SP. That SP imo was magical when she was on. The Witches of Eastwick is only mildly interesting for me.

I think the costumes are a little bit of the problem. They still have a very young feel to them with the hair ribbons and the flesh-colored fabric to hold up the faux-strapless dresses. I think she would really benefit from a better costume designer.

Perhaps she should consider Vera Wang-it worked for Kwan! :glamor: :D

Her sp is GORGEOUS! Love the spiral and one foot footwork sequence. Love the dress.

Her lp is a little junior but it was better at TEB than at COC so I think by nationals it will be fine. Her lp from last year was a little junior as well so I think this program this year will be fine.

She can't be going back to last years programs, it just would look like she has regressed and it's not need anyway.

I LIKE her SP. It tells a story to me....and in a different way than I've seen from a skater in a long time. Polish the program? Yeah. Get a new one? Nah.

Her long, I'm not as fond of.....but it works.

No, her programs are good. She just needed to do more training.

It really was. Mirai seemed so happy performing it-it was definitely her taste. And I knew after Worlds that she'd found a good style for her. Movie music suits her well, but even though I love the music from WoE, I'm just not a huge fan of the medley she has. I think it has something to do with the fact that she's never seen the movie/read the book (so she's less familiar with the story).

I would love to see Mirai skate to the theme from the film Sabrina. I went to a John Williams concert where the orchestra played that theme, and it had a Mirai feel to me.

Otherwise, I think she's got to stick with what she has this year. Heck, she seems happy, so that's the important part.

Goodness, costumes are expensive, and so are new programs! It is not an easy thing for skaters to change programs (especially $$Lori Nichol$$ programs) at this point in the season. I think Mirai would be better served by concentrating on technique and consistency. Better programs will come over the next few years, I am certain, as she matures and grows more confident in increasing her input into program selection. I am just grateful that she has such a unique personality for a US lady skater, and can't wait for her to come into her own style-wise.
