    I actually did. Think it was at Skate America, almost 2 years ago in Colorado Springs. She had on slacks. She also was in a very undignified position with one leg up over the chair arm. Don't know if it ever shows up on the tapes or not.

    That's quite an image! From that description, I also see her in my mind chomping gum with her mouth open.

    I personally love gloves, asymmetrical costumes like the one Elena Sokolova has this year, if you have any recordings you can look back and see. LOL it seems like Tatiana is never wearing anything besides a fur coat, but here are just a few pics of TT in a pink blouse I found on Sasha's website:

    Boot covers should be banned! Why would a woman want to make her
    feet look enormous???? With the guys, well, guys are supposed to have
    big feet, yes? So if the boot covers make their feet look bigger, will people
    assume something else is bigger??

    I like gloves. I like Evgeni's hair.

    Here's my thought to ponder: How many pirates will we see this season?

    Cheers

    Ouridol, great pictures of Mrs. Tarasova "under the fur." You know something? All these young skaters are very pretty and all, but Mrs. T. has that twinkle in her eye, if you know what I mean! BTW, did you know that she has her own web site? It is quite interesting and professionally done.

    Princess Leppard, instead of big feet I always heard that it was the nose that was the giveaway.

    Re: How many pirates will we see? Do you mean skating to Pirates of the Caribbean? It's got a good soundtrack, but I'll laugh my a** off over anyone who tries to be Johnny Depp on ice.

    Rumor has it Kevin Van Der Perren is skating to music from Pirates of the
    Caribbean. I think it would be fabulous, but I worry that we will see many,
    many, many pirates, not all of them sexy and hot. But I will enjoy the ones
    that are.

    Mathman.....does that explain my great love of Evgeni?

    I think we know to what Li is going to skate this season.

    As for the boot covers, I think they make skaters' legs look strange and unattractive.

    I've seen Tarasova not wearing her fur, and by no means was she naked, but I definitely felt something was amiss, he he.

    Mathman, it's actually the size of the feet AND the nose. In women you're supposed to look at the size of their feet, and in men at the size of their nose. If I remember correctly it was Ovidius who started this silliness (in "Ars Amandi"), and I suspect that his last name (Naso, from nasus = nose) played a big role in it.

    That said, I love men with big noses. :D

    I'm not sure what TT's wearing under her coat at any given time, but I've always wondered how many skaters and journalists over the years have fallen into that sea of fur and have been lost forever, perhaps still trying to get out? And more importantly, what steps can we take to ensure that tiny Sasha doesn't follow?

    I can see TT wrapping her arms around Sasha in a big hug and suddenly finding that Sasha has simply disappeared -- another missing person, a victim of the fluffy coat.

    Shudder

    Methinks TT would shudder to think that anyone wonders what's under the fur coat, or the pink blouse for that matter.

    Things that make me go hmmmm...

    When they won their World Championship, P&T did this neato move where she dismounted, touched the floor and bounced back up in to a sommersault. It was the only really cool thing they did... so what happened to that? Any why didn't they use that skill to develop other really cool stuff?

    Windspirit and Princess Leppard, I believe that it is not a coincidence that the two World Champions are Evgeny Plushenko and Michelle Kwan. Skaters who are so unfortunate as to have small noses not only sacrifice sex appeal, but also they can't get enough oxygen to sustain a full four or four-and-a-half minute long program. Poor things.

    Goodness, look what I've started ! maybe we should begin a separate thread about TT and what's under the fur?

    Kind along the lines of Linny's post, I wonder why great moves in an exhibition program never make it in to a competative program. Obviously some can not, but, for example, Michelle's back spiral from FOG, that would be great in a LP.

    Actually, I like boot covers. Most skaters wear them while practicing to protect their boots (expensive items as you could imagine) from getting "scuffed up." Some skaters like to wear "flesh" colored boots and some wear covers. Each to his/her own.
