Keeper of Bab's Death Stare...
Your Thoughts On The Costumes...Best/Worst??
Well, I have to say that although she is sooooo pretty, I simply destested Tanith's red ripped dress/bra combo...icky, yuck, tacky, etc... However, I though Agusto looked great!
I thought Amber Corwin's dress was a dream (I liked it best out of the ladies,) but the tiara looked affected.
What say you?
I totally lurved Sasha's SP dress especially the russian floral skirt scarf.
I found Danielle Kahle's dress pretty.
Emily's dress was perfect for her built.
Be Be looked lovely.
Agreed, Tanith's OD dress is awful. Also can't stand Corwin's tiara. M&Z's OD costumes are bad bad bad, as is Katie Orscher's "My tits have eyes" SP costume. Scary. I really dislike Cohen's new SP dress, WHY does she keep going for the neckline-plunging-to-the-crotch style? Very unflattering. And, its not very different from her old Dark Eyes dress, rather unoriginal. Katy Taylor has a cute SP dress, but isn't it the same one she wore last year? Jane Bugaeva looked pretty but that white just blends into the ice and is kinda boring. Not too many really awful costumes, but also nothing really stood out as absolutely gorgeous, lets hope we see some better outfits in the LPs/FD.

Normally Tanith has very nice outfits . . . but her OD dress is one of the worst I have ever seen. Just horrible. In fact, I was so distracted by its ugliness that I could hardly concentrate on their dance!! I think Tanith's fans need to start a new letter-writing campaign--this time to Shpilband to urge him to get rid of the hideous thing!!
Ice dance...where everyone wears more illusion mesh than real fabric! Tanith looked awful. M&Z looked bad too. Heck, all the dancers... oy! And G&P--what happened with his shirt, did rabid wolverines rip at it?
I liked Sasha's dress but I really wish she'd get rid of the plunging neckline. Doesn't look good on her. Maybe when she stops skating and fills out, yeah. But now? Nope. I DO like the sleeve though... it's pretty nifty, and the scarf thing on her skirt is interesting. Reminded me of a costume I had in dance in high school. Aaanyway...
I really liked Bebe's dress and Danielle Kahle's was pretty nifty too.
Idle here's the link to Toni's pics. Tiffanie is in there.

Amber's was nice. Tiara's look affected even on royalty to me (other than Princess Di), heck they ARE affected, LOL.. But it mimiced Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffanys".
Loved Katy Taylor's, Emily's, and BeBe's. That royal/cobalt blue is one of my favorite colors and looks beautiful on the ice, IMO.
The white dress of Jane Bugaeva's needed some more sparkle. Looked too much like a tennis dress of Serena Williams. AND she had tights that just overed the tops of her boots.

Thanks! Ya gotta love THIS. It looks like somebody rubbed a bottle and Barbara Eden popped out. It's good to see the whole Orange County mafia (Cohen, Nari Nam and Stiegler) back skating on a national level again.[/CENTER]

Angela is really part of the South Bay contingent (along with Michelle and Amber) but you are right...I really am looking forward to seeing her skate again in the future, whenever that may be[/CENTER]

I also like Melissa Gregory's as well. I didn't particurally like Jamie Silverstein's or Loren Galler-Rabinowitz. I'm not sure what I think of the Matthews girl....
Tiffany - from the one picture I could see of her, I didn't think she looked any sexed-out than anyone else. This dance is inherantly sensual an I would expect nothing less than lots of skin.
Hey, at least the dresses and illusion fabric were better constructed than what we've seen from some of the European dancers.....YUCK!
I generally don't like the body suit stuff, but Johnny's was nice...wish he would incorporate his red hand more into the skate...didn't he name his swan?
Evan's costume was nice, but he looks so tall and lanky - no muscle. I'd like to see him in somthing that gave him some meat to his structure.
Mike - YOu know, this guy really irritates me :banging: When its not an olympic year, he skates to weird stuff like metalica etc., then when its the olympics, he starts with classical stuff. It's like he's courting the judges. Either stay true to what kind of music you like or get off the ice. Also, costume did nothing for me. (okay, end of rant)
Tim - YUCK! he looks so bad...not just the costume but his stakting. I almost felt bad for him.
Well, didn't see anything.
I liked Sasha's new dress but agree, gotta stop that neckline. I liked the white one she had that was like a turtle neck...
Emily - nice costume for her build. She's a muscular girl (of course, if we saw her in person, she'd still be skinny).
Bebe - Loved it.
Alissa - Loved it
I wasn't fond of Kimmie, Katy, Danielle, Christine ect...all the dresses look the same to me.
Amber - Okay. The costume is not bad, but for a fasion designer - I'd expect more. Also GET RID OF THE TIARA!!!!
Okay, time for coffee. Hopefully I'll be in a better mood.
My first thought when I first saw Sasha warming up, was "why is she is a gypsy skirt"? I had no idea she was skating to Dark Eyes again. The dress was perfect for the music, but I wonder how many people would be able to make the connection.
When I saw Stephanie Rosenthaol warming up, I was thinking what a hideous outfit. But once the music started, I really did not think that again. Also a perfect match. I loved her program!
Amber looked lovely on the ice, but you should've seen her all done up for the Gala! She had let her hair loose and she had a stunning knee lengh dress (it was kind of silky in golden, don't recall too many details) with matching high heeled shoes. She was the best dressed at the gala, no question about it. Very elegant. I asked her if the dress was her creation, but it wasn't.
I don't recall anything particularly hideous from either guys or the pairs. I have to say is that white dresses on ladies is not the best choice of color when you seat a bit afar. They have to stand apart from the ice and the white just doesn't cut it.
I actually really like Sasha's new costume for the SP. It relates well to the theme of the music.
We all know Johnny's costumes are always over the top, but I really like his black swan outfit. I think he should use the orange glove more as a beak interpreting the music, but over all I love the program.
I didn't really see any costumes that were total disasters.. Although, I didn't appreciate Amber running off with my tiara..
My fav outfits were Tanith's (I thought it went well w/ the music and showed off that killer bod) and Sasha's. Worst costumes - Tim G., Kimmie Meisner (too 'old' looking for her) she has a young fresh face and should dress accordingly IMO - light and fresh!
