    If it was one of the hanging balls from the clown costume, I think that counts as "you should have known better." I'd expect the same thing to happen if there were sparkles or decoration that wasn't attached properly. I don't think it would have been called if someone caught a skate in a skirt or shirt sleeve and a piece came off.

    Belbin and Agosto would have been murdered last year with their OD dress that shed feathers all over the ice.

    I believe that the reason W&L were penalized was another shedding costume problem. Since both teams that were close to each other had the same problem, it was an ideal situation to impose the penalty and make the point to other teams.

    Spare bits of costume on the ice are a risk to the health of those that skate after the shedding team. I'm glad they got penalized, especially since it was in a situation that didn't affect final placing since both teams were equally penalized.

    Hooray for COP on this one. Here's the picture of the W/L costumes. Looking at the hanging bits, I can definitely see how they would have come off.

    Well, besides any dangerous hanging peices, I really like her dress. It looks very pretty on her. I won't comment on his costume.
