    Can I submit this for consideration? Brent alone could take the poll, but her eye makeup is :scream:

    Maybe they were trying to confuse the judges. I skated in a pair of pants with a similar pattern once, and my coach said he couldn't tell my legs apart.

    Part of the rule is that if a costume is cut low in the front, it cannot be cut low in the back as well, whether or not the area is covered by illusion fabric. I'm wondering about Samantha Cesario's "Swan Lake" FS costume, which she designed. It's cut low in front and back.

    If she wears this costume at JW, will she get a costume violation?

    I really like her! I wouldn't have called that excessive nudity.

    I don't think it is either, but it is low cut front and back.

    The men who were at the party where I watched Nationals thought the black on her front looked like hands reaching up and grabbing her chest. Apparently the 'swan' costume was lost on them.

    Samantha's costume is not only cut low in front and back, but on the sides, too. I'd hate to see her get a costume deduction--I like Cesario very much, and thought her FS was among the best of the night.

    Does it depend if the official in charge of costume inspection is bored and wants to feel important? :lol: Who actually makes the costume/prop deductions?

    Cesario's dress might be too tame for this thread.

    Each judge has the capability to post -1.00 for a costume or prop violation. If a majority of the judges do so, the referee applies a 1.00 deduction.

    :lol: Awesome polls Cocovica! I can't believe I've missed the fun! Looking through all the pictures makes me think:

    1. I MISS LA KHOKH!!!! Nobody has stepped up to replace her :glamor::dramaqueen::smokin:

    2. Ice dance costumes sure have gone downhill (the outrageous hill that is) in the last few years. :p

    She saw something in the judge's eyes... it is the same expression.

    Nipples on ice. Is this a Wang original? I feel like borrowing Disney's Aladdin eraser.

    Zhiganshina & Gaszi: the dress is like strange fecal art. It reminds me of pool noodles and those balloon sculptures clowns do.

    Amodio: Magic Mike meets tiger circus trainer. Yikes.

    PS, bless you for starting this Cocovica. Made my day :summer:

    And from that same competition Hwi Choi didn't do much better dressed as a hobo. JGP is where it's at for ladies costumes.

    I agree- best of the ladies. Also loved Madison Chock as best in dance ...it was high risk but the framing of the face with the collar was top rate.
