With The Ice 2016 tour successfully wrapped up, Patrick is most likely on his way home by now. After last week’s frenzy of events and social media postings, this week we saw the quieter side of Pchiddy. However, the stream of posted images continued unabated, demonstrating his popularity among Japanese figure skating fans.

On Monday, Patrick posted this relaxing photo of him strolling in a green environment – most appropriate for the outdoorsman that he is. But wait! Did you see what he was carrying? No? Right-click twice to enlarge the photo.

Avid reader that I am, my curiosity about the book he carried leads me to guess that it was perhaps a travel guide. Speaking of items carried, Patrick was kind enough to take a picture with this fan’s grandmother, all while lugging a mystery bag (see the enlarged photo).

Summer Fun with Friends

While in Kitakyushu, it seems that Patrick might have toured a local shrine (as suggested by @tofutabi), where he looked on as Mirai Nagasu picked out some items.

Then Mirai posted this group photo where Patrick was in total summer mode. Look at those open-toed skates – I mean sandals – on his feet!

In another group photo backstage, Patrick was once again next to Mirai with no skates on:

Yet more fan photos of Patrick and the cast:

Of Cakes and Confetti

Now, who wouldn’t look sad after being forced to drag a 10-ton cake across the ice (and not being able to eat any of it)? Despite his silly pout, Patrick’s words were much more straightforward:

The cake looked glorious (and much better with confetti on it) during the show:

So did the cast:

Missing you all as I land in Montreal! Thank you so much for a beautiful experience and the chance to see so much of such a beautiful country. Japan, I love you! A piece of my heart will always belong to your beautiful country and culture! 私はモントリオールに上陸としてあなたのすべてがありません!美しい経験と、そのような美しい国のあまり見る機会のためにどうもありがとうございます。日本は、私はあなたを愛して!私の心の作品は、常にあなたの美しい国や文化に属します!(Apologies for any bad translation) #theice2016 #japan #nippon #ありがとうございました

Happy Pchiddy Fans

Patrick’s artistry on ice has always inspired creativity in others. For example, fan and artist @mkr_en drew these beautiful illustrations of Patrick’s programs at The Ice 2016. They are No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 in a four-part series which I will post in their entirety when finished (at the request of the artist). No. 1 depicts Patrick’s costumes and positions in “Rhapsody in Blue”, and No. 2 illustrates scenes from “Mack the Knife” and “Sunday Morning”. No. 3 and No. 4 show the beautiful show finale.

Here’s No. 1, “Rhapsody in Blue”:

Here’s the artist’s rendition of “Mack the Knife” and “Sunday Morning”.

And beautiful No. 3 and No. 4:

Ask and you shall receive – an autograph, that is – wherever Patrick can scribble one. Here, long-time fan @kyrn23 got his autograph on a “macaroon”. (These are life-sized, stuffed versions of macaroons collected by fans at the show. To see how they work, watch this video.)

These fans took a gorgeous photo with Patrick, who looked like he had been airbrushed for a magazine cover:

With his popularity rising again (his Twitter followers now number 70.5K), I’m not surprised that fans caught up with him at Fukuoka Airport as well. Patrick was happy to pose for photos like this one (and the ones below) with his luggage in hand.

The Ice 2016 has been a success for Patrick and the cast, and during my limited time as a fan, I’ve observed that he always seems happy to be in Japan (and somehow he ends up looking thinner, too). What could be a more fitting and satisfying conclusion to a show tour than to read a comment like the one below? Nope, I will not disagree with anyone who calls Patrick “the king”!

It’s been a great summer so far, and I hope Patrick gets a well-deserved rest (with lots of alone time outdoors) at his new home, where he can reflect, recharge, and renew his strength for the upcoming competitive season. Enjoy the rest of your time off, Patrick!
