Thanks for the link. I think that was the intention to make people laugh.
Really? I would have never guessed.
Beacuse black is slimming. Which is ridiculous, as she is a tiny little thing.
Naw, it's just her old costume because they haven't made the new one yet. Artur was wearing an old one of his, too, I think. (Or his training gear. It's all black, so hard to tell!)
It's quite odd, because I find that when Artur and Plushy are wrapped head-to-toe in black, they actually look rather fragile. It washes out their already-pale skin.
A few photos from Mishin's summer camp in Tartu on Absolute Skating FB:
Really looking forward to Artur's flamenco program.
And of course always gives me a smile to see Plushy on the ice!
So Staviski has done choreographies to both Plushenko and Joubert. Interesting!
Katia and Sergei did an exhibition to Jesus Christ Superstar, and it wasn't horrendously awful, so maybe there's hope for Tanya and Max?

It was not my favorite G&G program. I watched it just once, and that was years ago. Never wanted to watch it again. I am disappointed if V&T are going to skate to this music. I do remember Lobacheva-Averbukh skating to it.
Apparently V/T are having an open practice tomorrow (Aug 9) at the Italian Baselga de Pine rink; perhaps at some point soon there will be feedback on what the programs look like, and if totally horrific, maybe changes will be made.
So no reports on the V&T training?
What's the latest on whether the Russian test skates will be "open" and posted? Hope so. Prior seasons, has been fascinating to watch the programs and the progress.
Posted in this thread back on July 11:
Junior singles test skates are starting today in Novogorsk
Probably nobody who is on FSU went there?
There will be a practice session of Volosozhar/Trankov and Bazarova/Larionov open to the media on Wed, Aug 14. I am planning to go. Can't go to the Junior test skates though as I'm busy at the IAAF Worlds. I'm just lucky that not much is going on on Wednesday at the Athletics event.
