    favorite costumes

    Whose costume do you like?

    This season, I like Alissa's SP costume, Mao's SP, LP, and gala costumes, Yukari's SP costume, Sarah's SP costume, and Yukina Ota's LP costume.

    My favorite among ladies is Mao's gala costume. It's very classy, sophisticated and fresh at the same time. I like her LP costume, too, which looks so elegant and airy that goes well with her flow on ice.

    I also found Yukari's SP costume very, very beautiful. I like the fresh mint color, and light, soft skirt, and all the delicate decorations. I thought that it may be better if she had skin-colored cloth on her chest and upper back, too, so that there would be no color difference between her chest, upper back, and arms because her actual skin color is much fairer than the skin-colored cloth that covers her arms. But otherwise, it is an extremely beautiful costume.

    Among men, I like Daisuke's SP costume very much. I like the feather. And I LOVE Jonny's SP costume. It's very Jonny and beautiful. His LP costume looks to me a bit decorative, but still looks good on him.

    I love Yunie's (Yu-Na Kim's) LP Dress as well as Caroline Zhang's LP Dress

    (This is my new name for Yu-Na Kim. Such a cute nickname don't you think )

    I like Yu-na's waltz costume and Mao's short program costume. I like Yukari Nakano's salmon colored long program costume (It looked stunning on her).

    I love Caroline Zhang's SP Dress. If this dress were just black and red, which may be often the case for this type of music, it would have looked too mature on her. But she looks really nice and fresh in white. I love the thin, two-layered skirts with gradation from white to black. I love the simple line around her chest and back. I also find the red rose on her hair very cute!

    I really like Kimmie's LP costume. I think the strong colors and simple line of the dress suit her very well. I also like Sarah Meier's costumes (both SP/LP). They're very feminine and fit her delicate, precise style.

    In pairs, I like the Zhangs' LP costumes. Nice strong colors, definitely a big improvement over their previous blah costumes. I also like S/S's LP costumes--they are a nice shade of fuchsia/purple. In dance, I like the concept and design of Delobel/Schoenfelder's Piano LP programs, but I wish they were some other color. That dull brown doesn't do anything for either skater (although it may be period-appropriate).

    Mao's costumes this year are nice but a little too fussy/frilly for my taste. And Carolina Kostner's costumes would look better on someone else, I think. Poufy, ribbony costumes just don't flatter her tall, long-limbed figure.

    I like B&As black FD costumes. I also V&M's FD costumes, and Carron&Jost's OD costumes. Yay to dance teams who don't feel the need to look dreadful!

    I also like the Kerr's OD costumes. Must be my Scottish blood, but I always like a guy in a kilt!

    Ladies:
    * Both of Alissa Czisny's costumes this season are beautiful.
    * Korpi's SP costume
    * Carolina's costumes - I'm just a sucker for pink and purple.

    Dance
    * Tanith and Ben's free dance outfits
    * Samuelson and Bates OD costumes
    * Domnina & Shabalin's Yankee Polka outfits were cute, I thought.

    Pairs
    * S&S's FS costumes - again, it's the pink and purple
    * Mukhortova and Trankov's SP costumes

    I have to look back and see, there were a few more that I thought were good.

    I agree that Kimmie looks nice in simple costumes! I like Sarah's costume (esp. SP), too! Simple and fresh

    I also understand your saying that poufy, ribbony costumes may not be ideal for tall, long-limbed ladies. Such costumes may generally suit smaller, skinny teenage girls better. But I personally love Caro's costumes really a lot. Her choice of colors, i.e., the pink and purple, gives her mature looks despite all the ribbons and decorations. These colors go so well with her fair-pink skin tone, too. Actually, I have almost always loved Caro's costumes . Especially, the ones for the Olympic season were so stylish. Hands down.

    I love Caro's sp costume. Oh well, how many skaters have luxury of high fashion designer making their dress? For the same reason, I loved many of Michelle's dress. Vera Wang did such a marvelous job with Kwan. Here are my favorite ladies' dress:

    SP:
    Alissa Czisny
    Caroline Zhang
    Carolina Kostner
    Susanna Poykio
    Yuna Kim

    LP:
    Alissa Czisny
    Sarah Meier
    Kiira Korpi
    Joannie Rochette

    And Mao Asada's gala dress

    And for fun, costumes I hate:
    Yuna Kim's lp dress.
    Mao Asada's lp dress.
    Miki Ando's all dresses.
    Kimmie Meissner's sp dress.
    Yukari Nakano's dress (I love the design, but the color hurts my eyes)

    Did you mean her LP costume? I feel that it's a bit unusual color for Yukari to choose. She tends to wear light colors that go well with her skin tone. I wonder how that vivid orange looks in person, because it looks to me differently depending on the picture and video.

    BTW, I love her ex white costume It has feminine, classical line and shiny texture. I love the soft, long layered skirt, and elegant cut and decorations around her chest. I actually love most of her dresses Although the LP costume is not my favorite, the design is still nice and interesting.

    Yes I meant her lp dress. I agree about her ex costume. I generally love white dress with delicate patterns especially with great lighting.
