    This is an extremely superficial comment, but I love the shirt on your outfit. It looked like just plain blue fabric, but then when you started moving, the beading caught the light and really emphasized the motion very strikingly. Can I ask what kinds of beads or stones you used on it?

    Thank you! I wanted something very simple for this program, so I made a drawing of the shirt and had it made. Once it was done, we picked out some very small AB swarovski crystals for the top part. There aren't a ton of beads, but just enough to pick up some light when moving, and that's the effect I wanted...something simplistic.

    If I use beading, I typically tend to use AB crystals, which are pretty reflective, and I always go towards the very small ones as they don't make the shirt look tacky, and when you look at it up close, it still looks very tasteful.

    Here's another photo of the blue shirt, and here's a photo of my other shirt where I had over 1,000 small crystals lined in rows.

    The lighting here shows the beads more clearly:

    The purple shirt I had made with many beads:

    Wow, I haven't posted in my thread in quite a while.....yet I seem to be on the forum daily reading threads :)

    I thought I'd post two videos I did today. One is for someone that I offered my help on how to do a back scratch spin. I might not be the best teacher, but hopefully the video is helpful. The other is just a few jumps as I tested out the ice for the upcoming Adult Sectionals event.

    Scratch Spin Demo:

    Testing out the competition rink:

    And while I'm at it, here are a few other vids I have posted on my YT page since I last posted here:

    My mid-winter warmup artistic skate (I used this as a warmup for my freeskate later in the evening...pretty basic program):

    Thanks for the vids. I watched your Master's Showcase Dramatic one as I don't think I've seen one before and thought that was a really nice program.
