    Those are all absolutely, unequivocally, hideous.

    Looks like outfits you would dress your grade-school daughter up for a talent show, and even then they are still tacky.

His Incredible Hulk costume from 2011 Nationals didn't fit him. It looked like it was thrown together. Another costume flaw was the men's Champion that year. You could basically see his manhood in that Bugle Boy outfit...
    He had to hide his bugle somewhere. Props aren't allowed.

    I've started thinking that the gloves on the Russian ladies might be a result of a lot of their spins/spirals involve them grabbing their blades and their coaches put them in gloves to protect their hands. I think the SP in last 2 grand prix events was the first time I remember seeing Lipnitskaia skate without gloves.

    Great minds : your point was discussed on Twitter a few days ago:

    @SarahandDrew
    @nickverreos1 It's because of all the blade-grabbing required under IJS. They cut their hands if they don't wear gloves. #sport

    I see no such thing. You must have a rich imagination unless you can post a picture to prove it.

    It isn't so much what you actually see, but what you think you see. And that is a nono. Adelina's costume should have gotten a deduction for giving the impression of excessive nudity. JMO.

    Radionova's costume looked like a Las Vegas showgirl outfit, so inappropriate for a young girl and especially one as cute and appealing as she is. The outfit overwhelmed her, making her a costume wearing a girl. The overdone collar made her look as if she had no neck (she does have a rather short neck and should avoid elaborate necklines).

    I think part of the problem is that she is currently all legs and arms.

    I was digging videos of past, and noticed Mao's latest FS dress was on her fluff of 2009 TEB (the Vancouver Olympics season). Anyone wanna remind me which comp she recycled this from?

    If this was unworn and unstaged one turned down back then, then Mao could be getting a new FS dress for the Sochi and wearing this only temporarily... if lucky.

    Some have gone over the top; others barely go over the bottom

    It must be so bothersome for you not being able to look up their skirt right?
    Well get used to it because it will happen more often.

    Once again your comment made absolutely no sense, hence my other post from before.
    Furthermore it was only an example of black leggings/tights with figure skating costumes, it would look even better with different colors which would bring so many more details to the costumes other than the hussy trashy clubbing look you prefer so much.

    Regarding Mao, I often find her skating hard to watch because of her costumes. Not due to indecency but they're usually so distracting. Hope she does get a nice new LP dress for the Olympics. Not a fan of her new SP dress either. The old one was actually good.

    I want to burn her new SP outfit. The bust part is ugly. Most of Mao's bust area of her outfits are hideous. Why can't her designers leave well enough alone. Same thing with her Swan Lake LP dress from last season. They create a good outfit, and then turned around and made a horrible replacement.

    I can't believe I put Mao and hideous in the same sentence.
