    I think the following picture is a dress that begs to be made into a skating costume:

    High fashion that should be skating costumes would be a fun thread when the rest of the other costume thread die down a bit :D

    Best: Kwan's Flamenco costume from 96 Us and world's. Just went with the music and the color and style were so appropriate and completed the package. Love it. Michelle herself made a comment about it's effectiveness in one interview.

    Worst: Bauil's pink costume from 94 Olympics. Utterly awful.

    Totally loved Michelle's Lyra Angelica. Simplicity usually wins out with me over bling. And I hated the ice dance dresses that came down past the calves. You couldn't see their feet. I think that's why I haven't cared for the skirt part on most of Tessa's dresses - they're just too long and you can't really catch the movement of the legs. Nobody has mentioned Ilia Kulik's giraffe shirt in awhile. Ick. Always liked G&G's costumes. They were pretty simple. And really liked Sale and Pelletier's Oly "Love Story" costumes. Fit the music.

    As for the best? I think the Japanese ladies generally tend to dress well - I even like most of Miki Ando's costumes, but I might be alone on that. Mao's "Scherezade" and her LP dress this year were two of my favorites. I liked most of Sasha Cohen's costumes as well. For the men, Daisuke's LP costume from 2010 was very stylish imo.
    Great site; thanks. Reminds me of when Tom and Lorenzo would critique the skaters' costumes.

    In case you missed this on the NBC site during the 2014 Olys, there are some real beauties here. Whatever you do, don't miss the last photo #43).

    Holy hockey pucks, what was the designer smoking? The real tragedy is that he/she probably spent hours creating those outfits -- and probably charged an extortionate price to boot. But they're still not in the same league w/ "One Banana."

    OTOH, whatever anyone thinks about Nancy Kerrigan's skating, I thought she looked terrific in the 2 dresses Vera Wang did for her for the '94 Olys. Simple, sleek, elegant, and altogether classy, IMO. Loved them both.

    Thanks again for the giggles, gallavich!

    Worst - anything "shredded" & Domnina & Shabalin's Aborigine program costumes

    One of the things about the 80's and early 90's era dresses that crack me up are either shoulder pads or anything else puffy sleeved. It was an ugly trend to begin with, but I really can't imagine going through such an athletic event with all that crud around the shoulders.

    ^ And I was going to start a thread suggesting the return of shoulder pads to costuming. That would have been embarrassing.

    I may stand my ground on puffy shirts! Lets be real here.

    Please do! I'd love to see what you get. I personally am anti-puff, but I may only be the only one.

    I mean some would probably argue that this outfit would be too puffy. What? I'm just not seeing it. Not to mention the safety issues we would be addressing.

    Omg, haha!! Maybe my opinion on puff stems from the fact that my mother did that to me

    I'll let a little puff hate go, but please don't promote excessive use of feathers on costumes. That's just no bueno.
