Kulik must have been so hot in a bad way. I'd be sweating profusely and looking for an IV drip. How can anyone skate in thick plastic? Well, Tat was never known for taste.
    I had the same thought re: D/S in 2010.


    Also the Duschenays @ the 1988 Olys. Bestimianova & Bukin too, even though they were very fine dancers, had a few scary ones as well.

    More recently, Yuzuru's LP. And Polina's SP dress -- she's charming and so talented and I have high hopes for her going forward, but when I saw that outfit the first thought that popped into my mind was Big Bird!

    On a more positive note...
    Gracie's SP -- such a gorgeous shade of red. OTOH, I thought her LP dress was too old-looking for her.
    Akiko's white dress w/ the pastels on the bodice -- absolutely loved it and it seemed to suit her perfectly.
    Yuna's LP dress -- stunning, dramatic, and elegant.
    Yulia's LP -- just right for her and perfect for the program.
    P/B's "Little Prince" outfits -- the colors were luscious!

    I'll just do ladies.
    Gold: Yuna's Olympic long. Simple, elegant. Fit for a queen.
    Silver: Ashley's Olympic long. Sparkle! And I love yellow.
    Bronze: Yulia's long. So well suited to the music.

    The fugly award goes to Adelina's long. it just made me

    The wide variety of costumes, from the tasteful to tragically tacky, is just one of the things I love about skating. Without the Misha Ges and Johnny Weirs of the world, it would be awfully boring!

    Yuzuru's LP....get-up - WHHHHHHHYYYYYYYUUHHHH
    Tatsuki's Firebird costume - He took the Firebird theme too literally.
    Anna's Mermaids LP - Too much of what I didn't like (the sheer cuts, the random strips of teal, the seashell- I don't want to continue)
    Javier's SP - The one of the ways where stripes doesn't work at all.
    Mao's other LP dress - Too much Miki Ando happening there
    Both of Misha's outfits - entertaining to watch but NO JUST NO

    edit: forgot that it was Kevin's LP outfit is the one that I hated instead of his SP's
    I totally agree with you for Adelina's SP dress. Last season her blue dress was okay (but again.. WHYYYY is the v-neck in her back??) and i thought her black dress fitted her SP music.
    Sadly, this year all of her dresses (before and after the changes) were disappointing.

    This said, I loved Mao Asada's dresses at worlds.

    I also want to mention Kaetlyn Osmond's LP dress. I loved it !!

    Which brings me to worst:
    Elena Leonova FS ... Was she trying to be a nutcracker or something or a little drummer girl? I couldn't ever get "ba rumpa bum bum" out of my head just from looking at it.

    Now I'm mad that she didn't use that black dress and the hair piece for her SP! It would've added more fierceness to her program. Oh the possibilities...
    And I agree, it's a shame that all of her dresses this year were disappointing. She really needs to have a talk with her costume designers. She is such a beautiful girl with dynamic expressions. Her dresses (esp. for the SP) did not help at all (well for me anyway)

    And oh yes! Mao's dresses were amazing I LOVE THEM! They amazingly complements the way she moves from ethereal to dynamic

    Oh thank you for mentioning Kaetlyn's dress! I forgot about it. I think she's only one that can work that deep purple burgundy-like colour.

    How wrong I was to say that worst costume of all men belongs to this era.
    With all due respect, Yagudin won this contest years ago: http://youtu.be/kQVOGeA7FJ8

    Oh dear, that program i try to forget and say that was only a Yagudin clone doing it. Somehow it doesn't suit him at all.

    OMG why did you post this and why did I watch it
    It totally ruined Yagudin's beautiful image in my head. I hope Yuzuru doesn't attempt this kind of thing!!! Ahahaha XD

    This was one of the first programs of Yagudin I ever watched, and I've never been able to like him for that reason (well, that & I didn't like what he said about Plushy). Maybe unfair of me but it's really horrific...it isn't just about the costume though - it's offensive on every level!

    Since people are digging up some of the worst ever, I'll share my favorite ever. It was Sarah Hughes in the short program at the Salt Lake Olympics. Beautiful shade of navy, simple lines. I loved it The haircut? Not so much. Anna Pogorilaya, Mao, Carolina, etc... would all be a vision in this.

    I was actually kinda surprised that this costume hasn't come up sooner... I've read countless comments about how offensive that Aborigine inspired costume was (not only here but also on other sites) but this one has never been mentioned anywhere.... maybe it was too long ago (or people chose to forget it, for obvious reasons)
