Just for the information, Mao's costume is not a "peacock” style. From her interview after finishing JO in Sportsnavi. http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/sports/figureskate/all/1213/columndtl/201310050004-spnavi my translation from Japanese As you know Rachmaninov suffered from his mental disease and dedicated this Piano Concerto to the doctor who was supportive for him. He overcame his condition with the doctor's help. So he felt so thankful to him. Mao said in her interview that she expresses her whole life in her FS to Rach 2. She struggled with her reworking of her jumping techniques and her mom's passing away as well. Now she is coming back to her top level with more matured expressive moves. She overcame her discourages and her inner power is coming out from her body again. Supposedely TT wanted to express the deep side of the music with the costume. Not a peacock. I suppose she chose this music to show she is ok and enjoying skating again to everyone who has been anxious about her, and say thank you and good-bye. Her ex program "Smile/What a wonderful world" include the same intention as well. Just for notice, TV Tokyo airs the gala show "Carnival on Ice" in almost 5 and a half hours. http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/coi2013/info.html#cast The cast of Carnival on Ice according to the official site, linked above. All of the skaters participated in Japan Open. and Takeshi Honda Shizuka Arakawa Nobunari Oda Tatsuki Machida Satoko Miyahara Ryuju Hino ...I heard Mao skated her short program "Nocturn". Can't wait to see their performances.
