I like his costume too. Do you know who design for him? I hope he wasn't mistook his costume with Mao-chan costume.

I saw first the Canadian guy performance and I didn't like it that much, my sister-in-law told me that the Japanese guy was better, so I looked up online and It didn't surprise me that he got the gold (even though he fell twice) his performance was simply beautiful!
