She's been seen awaiting scores while holding a plush toy of Luna, Sailor Moon's cat and companion. It wasn't the first time she cosplayed as Usagi Tsukino, as she dressed up as Sailor Moon while skating at the 2016 Dreams on Ice event in Nagaoka, Japan. Nagasu was ninth, with Chen 10th and Tennell 11th. "It's not a secret for anyone that I have the most hard program in the world".
