Pictures all clear, and fun to remember when I saw them in their first appearance :rofl:. And I also remember him getting a kick out of the media questions. "I just like ruffles!" he replied, with a big grin.

My computer couldn't find GS for several hours. Glad to see it's back. 😊

How about Kevin van der Perren for the lifetime achievement award?

That is horrifying. This season seems really harmless compared to some of the atrocities from the past.

Except for Smolkin's puffy prince shirt with the weird cutouts, that to me is on the same level of wtf-ness as some of these.

Oh, yes!

Boys but I miss Kevin. He was a great skater, and somebody you always looked forward to watching. But he just had too many injuries.


Just when I see his skeleton inspired costume, it reminds me of something that happened yesterday. I had to leave watching the ISU International Adult Competition early as I had other things to do last night. But, when I popped in to check for the start of the final segment so that I could put up the reminder post, I saw a skater waiting for her scores that was wearing a similar costume, except this one had a full anatomically correct skeleton! Oh, and a lot of flowery decorations!

If you want to see Janina KROGMANN (DEU), here is the link to yesterday's archived livestream:

https://sportdeutschland.tv/deutsche-eislauf-union/isu-adult-fsc-2024-tuesday-may-14th

It is split into two parts, so click on "Teil 2", and then go to 7h 8m 2s for the start of her programme. Please be aware that this website requires you to disable your ad-blocker before it allows you to play any videos.

Funily enough, when trying to find her, I discovered that the skater on before her, Nadine VAKŠIĆ (HRV), also had some bones on her costume.

Krogmann's costume reminded me of a local motorbike racer who wears leathers with a full skeleton on them. I can't find any photos of him in them online, but he was inspired by David Aldana, a racer from California who famously wore skeleton leathers in the 1970's:

Anyway, I am going to go now and start catching up on skaters I missed, before today's action starts.

At least there's a chance to see Midori Ito, if like me you aren't able to watch the live stream. Her artistic performance is posted on youtube. I don't know by whom because all the text around it is in Japanese. I got it by Googling "Midori Ito adult international 2024 video".

[Edit: Sorry, this should have gone in the thread for the Adult International, not the costume one (although Midori's dress is very pretty indeed).]

Sadly Tarzan is not a competition costume, but i'd go for skeleton

Is a loin cloth substantial enough to be classified as a "costume" anyway? 🤔

Much as I loved the programme that he wore the skeleton costume in, for these awards my vote would be for the white and gold "Lawrence Of Arabia" costume.

Also, if there is a category for 'please, give up transformer costumes' it should go to Semenenko. His attempts at transforming...the pain...the dreary brown-and-red and then with the wrong yellow flowers...gosh, the memories...
you! give me some russians :ROFLMAO: Semenenko fake reveal was from last season sadly.

Then it's 'thank God he got the message!' award.

I loved the Margarita costume, even with the transformation. :love2:
Much better than the silver Romeo. 🥲
(And how do people feel about his clown costume? I love it, but I've seen people think it's wtf.)

it's bad, but not that bad to be memorable, to me at least. he tried to replicate Leo's masquerade ball costume with no much success...
