Last night, I dreamed of Julia Lipnitskaia. More specifically, I dreamed I created a fan fest for her amazing rainbow dress and everyone agreed with me... unlike in real life :rofl:

Do you have a favorite costume or two this season, or from the past? Let's gush about our favorite (and not so favorite) skaters fashion sense when they get it right!

I would only ask that people avoid bashing anyone's costumes or commenting (overly) negatively on costumes anyone else posts here... this should stay a positive thread for us to share what we like and what we think works, even if others don't agree.

To start, the dress that inspired it all :laugh2: and one of my favorite costumes this season:

You know, ever since you changed you profile pic, I had been wondering who it was! So, thank you for enlightening me. (Sorry, but that dress is not my taste).

Getting to the topic, and I am going to cheat. I am going to direct you to my post in the "Favorite Costumes of All Time" thread that we had earlier in the year:

http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sh...-of-All-Time&p=1158225&viewfull=1#post1158225

To be honest, there aren't really any costumes that I have seen so far this season that I would go as far as to say I "adore".

But, I did see a costume a few hours ago in the Advanced Novice Ladies SP at the Denkova-Staviski Cup that was extremely cute.

Let us know what you think of my choices.

Oh, just remembered that I forgot to add something to my previous post.

If you like that rainbow dress of Julia's, what do you think of this rainbow dress that I saw in an earlier group during that same Advanced Novice Ladies SP in Bulgaria?

I like it. :yes:

I love Julia's dress but not the gloves and the belt. Love Mao's costume also. Always loved Moa's costumes. :love:

I want to see Julia do an exhibition to either "Rainbow Connection" or "Colors of the Wind" or Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" in that costume!

I love Julia's dress. So far my favorite girl's cistume.

Last season I absolutely loved Elizabet Tursynbaeva's Memoirs of a Geisha costume.

Gilles/Poirer get a million points from me for sheer audacity. Which works!

And then there's Hanyu's "blue flame" outfit which is the best costume ever worn by a man, and that includes everything from Johnny Weir.


I agree. I forgot about G&P. I love their SD costumes and I love Hanyu's costume also.

Never thought about it but it's a great idea. :thumbsup:

I give her a pass on the gloves because we know she always wears gloves because she has so many moves where she grabs her blades and they are more for protection than fashion.

Well, use smaller ones then and possible nude color. These are too big, IMO. Either way, gloves or belt need to go. Both are tooooooooo much.

She wore nude ones last year and they looked weirder than the blue ones she's got now because they were like 3 shades darker than her arms.

In general, I'd say that Michelle Kwan, Yuna Kim, and Madison Chock's outfits are always on point. I love Joshua Farris' Schnidler's List costume. and Ilinykh/Katsalapov's Swan Lake costumes.

I've already declared Yulia's dress an act of ingenuity, so there is nothing to add. But ingenuity is only the first step to perfection, and if you look for perfection, go for simplicity. :)

On the other hand, who could forget The Pink Panther?. But I think they have made a mistake with Robin's costume. Instead of that policeman's dress they should have turned him into Sir Charles Lytton, with a black tie and white gloves with a "P". ;)

This season my favorite has been Wenjing Sui's SP dress. :love:!
Shiyue Wang's is another SP dress I loved at SA, and Madi Chock's SD dress is gorgeous as well. Evgenia Medvedeva's SP dress is amazing!

And who could forget Feather Man Mura or Velvet Pants Amodio? :laugh:

From this season, I really liked Rika's Cirque du Soleil costume, Mao's Madame Butterfly and my favorite is probably Evgenia's SP dress, I adore it. The guys have come up with some very...ehm..interesting choices this season. Madison's SD dress is great too!

But Yuna's costumes hold a special place in my heart, specially her Bond dress and Kiss of the Vampire (that dress was an absolute dream).

A huge favorite of mine is Gracie's short program dress from Skate America. So elegant!

If people could link a pic that would be great. The early posts in this thread are more entertaining because they have an easy reference for what is being mentioned and will provide interest for posterity too. :)

I think So Youn Park looked gorgeous at Skate America in the SP and in the FS.
