Favorite Costumes This Season
I've been watching some programs in anticipation of Worlds and have fallen in love with some of the skaters' costumes. I was wondering what all your favorites have been. Mine are:
Yuna - Both her SP and LP costumes are stunning. Normally I wouldn't think light blue would work for someone as fair-skinned as she is, but the crimson and the jewels really bring the costume together. I also love her LP costume, but not as much as her SP one.
Mao - Her LP costume at the GPF. So many feathers can be risky because someone can look like Big Bird, but the costume is very tastefully done and really gives her an elegant look. Her SP costume is
Akiko - I love her LP costume as well.
Carolina - She would look magnificent in anything she wears, but her SP costume at Euros is particularly nice, with the splash of red and the detail on the sleeves.
leave no stone unturned
I thought Yuna's costumes are both grey, light and darker, are they blue?
I like both swan costumes of Mao but the feathery 4CC looks gorgeous when she skates.
Akiko might have the best Lp costume ever, not only this season. I like Kanako's new costume at 4CC too.
I think Fernadez Lp is a great costume and Daisuke's red jacket of the old sp, I cant remember any other men now.
Kavaguti's Lp costume was stunning live and also Capelini's first costume of Carmen looked much better than the new. I like also Tessa's black Carmen costume, I think it is interesting.
Like subtlety in ice dancing
I don't remember what all those costumes look like. So here are some pics I found:
Mao's swan FS dress. It's not horrible, but I don't love it either. It just brings to mind the phrase "tarred and feathered". The way the feathers are arranged aren't artful enough to entirely escape the notion that she just got sweaty and rolled around some geese.
Mao's SP costume. A costume designed to leap out of the screen, and stab every viewer in each eyeball repeatedly.
Mao's Mary Poppins gala costume. I love it. It doesn't break any molds, but it is adorable and entirely appropriate.
Akiko Suzuki's FS costume. It's a peacock. It's nice but not great.
Akiko Suzuki's SP costume. It's more rhinestone biker than Kill Bill.
Yuna Kim's Kiss of the Vampire SP outfit. I don't like it. I don't like the shapes on it, and I don't like that shade of red with that shade of blue.
Her Les Miserables FS costume. Drab renn faire reject.
Yuzuru Hanyu's gala costume. The appliqué could be more thoughtfully done, but it's cute.
