    Favorite Costumes of THIS Quad (2010-11 season to present)

    I was googling some images and decided to share after compiling them! These are all relatively high-resolution images because I strongly dislike trying to admire detail from a small picture. What are some of your favorite costumes of this quad?

    PLEASE--ONLY COSTUMES FROM THE 2010-11 SEASON (post-Olympic season) TO NOW. (Yes, we pretty much all love Yuna's Olympic costumes, but there are definitely more costumes out there waiting to be admired!) Also, providing links to images are greatly appreciated, but not necessary!




    And the ABSOLUTE best costume this quad:

    There's loads more I love too, but it's hard to remember them all! Will keep adding.

    Ooh! Yes! I think they wear it so well--but it's mainly because they have so much speed across the ice and carry a sort of lightness that is befitting of the ballet!

    Kostner's Mozart concerto is the absolute best for me!
    In second place, I would put Anna Cappellini's red Carmen FD dress
    In third, Wagner's Samson and Delilah
    Other beautiful costumes: Wagner's Black Swan, Zhang's Rushing wings of dawn, Alissa Czisny Valse Triste first version (the second one could actually be in the "worst costumes" list!) and Winston FS, Mao's swaon first version...

    Yes definitely, I love it!

    @FSGMT - I agree, I prefered Alissa's original 'Valse Triste' dress a lot more.

    Others I've liked are:

    Weaver & Poje's 'The Sound of Music' as it's just so simple and pretty, and Kaityln's blue dress is just gorgeous!

    Like Abbott's 'Sing, sing, sing' too as it was so simple but the suspenders worked wonders within the program.

    Probably my favorite was Kiira Korpi's SP dress this season (The Girl With the Flaxen Hair) http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_md...ashao1_500.jpg . I loved the color, and the way it shimmered on the ice.

    I really liked most of the ones aftertherain posted... but-- and I know I'm in the minority-- I still don't like Carolina's Mozart costume. I don't think it fit well.

    I actually really like this one of Artur Gachinski's - 2011-2012 SP "St Louis Blues" http://25.media.tumblr.com/d5153d039...y7wio2_500.jpg

    But an interesting one in terms of good costume turned bad...Jason Brown said before the season started that they were trying to present him with a more mature image this year. I thought his original "Liebestraume" costume managed to make him look older http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9...7s9o1_1280.jpg....until the blue velvet pants arrived http://25.media.tumblr.com/3a7205d78...sz0o1_1280.jpg.

    I'm with you--I didn't like the unitard. I preferred the dress Carolina wore earlier in the season with that program.

    Thanks for posting the Korpi pictures. What a beautiful dress! I absolutely love that spring green color, so seldom seen in skating costumes. Korpi certainly has stunning taste in costumes.

    Alissa Czisny's original LP dress (the blue/purple one) from the 2011-2012 season. She used it at SA, TEB, and the GPF.
