The performance given by her made her sensation in Japan overnight in 2016.

The World Team Trophy in Figure Skating Competition, an event that brings competition from all over the world together, held by the International Skating Union in Tokyo 2017, where once again Evgenia performed a Sailor Moon Themed routine; dressed in the main protagonist Usagi Tsukino’s iconic school girl uniform and then slowly transformed it into her battle armour same as the character does in Sailor Moon and this time accompanied by her pet Luna as well.

Her transition into the character was smooth knowing the fact that she was doing it all along with her choreography.

Evgenia performance stunned the audience as she performed on original Sailor Moon theme song, which made her moves powerfully nostalgic; making her looked coming straight out of the anime. Approaching to the end of her performance she pulled off some Sailor Moon’s classic hand gesture and ended the performance with the iconic phrase from the series Tsukini Kawatte Oshioki yo! In Japanese meaning “On behalf of the Moon, We’ll punish you”
