    I know the Olympic costumes are yet to be seen, but so far which costumes have you liked?

    I liked all of Ashley's costumes, and many of the Russian ladies SP costumes today (e.g. Agafamova, Shershak).

    Akiko's LP costume at the Japanese nationals was lovely. I hope she uses it in the Olympics.

    One of my most favorite costumes this season is Julia Lipnitskaya's red dress in her LP. It's tough to find a more appropriate costume that goes with the music and the story.

    Sinitsina-Zhiganshin's FD costume

    V&T's SP costume

    Among men- I can't think of any that I really liked. I know which ones I disliked.

    I like Joubert's costumes.
    I like Chan's fs costume v much.
    I do like Kovtun's costumes even tho his jump entries drive me nuts.
    I like Daisuke's costumes because they don't in any way distract from his lyrical skating :)

    Suzuki's SP dress, both of Marchei's dresses, both of Kozuka's FS costumes, Pang and Tong's FS costumes. Chan's are fine too.

    Mao's old SP dress was by far and away my favorite of all the dresses, I still don't understand why she changed it. :( Everything Akiko has worn this season has been gorgeous, and I love Julia Lipnitskaia's FS dress too.

    I've liked Sam Cesario's costumes the most this season, followed by: Aliona Savchenko & Robin Swolkowy, Madison Chock's SD dress, Meryl's SD and FD costumes, Charlie White's FD costume, Shibutani's FD costumes.

    I'm probably missing more, but yeah

    -Pechalat's FD Dress
    -Mao's original Nocturne dress (see: Skate America)
    -Yu-Na's FS Adios Nonino dress
    -I liked Yuzuru's FS costume until I saw the rainbow/Dragon Tales crystal business at the top on close up.
    -I loved Meryl Davis' original costumes that we saw in Salt Lake City; I loved the lavender SD dress and I thought the seafoam green FD dress was divine. Sadly, I think the new pink SD dress doesn't have as much class or panache (too Barbie for me), and I like the design of the FD dress, but that gross blue is more Brady Bunch than anything else for me.
    -Tessa's current SD dress :swoon:; I like the pink one we saw at the GPF, but I just wish she'd put her hair up; the way she has it long now kind of makes her look poor...

    I don't know, it's just the way she styles it I guess. It reminds me of poor immigrants from the turn of the century (I don't mean this to sound mean, I love V/M, but it's just what I think). In contrast, when Meryl let her hair down for the GPF medal ceremony, it looked much classier, neater, and more sophisticated.

    I think Akiko continues to be the best dressed skater in Ladies singles.

    DW's freedance costumes. Teal and purple, with red and gold accents? It's like they downloaded my favorite colors right out of my brain.

    My favorite ladies dress is the one Akiko Suzuki wore at JPN Nat during the SP. Stunning.
    Lipnitskaya red dress in the fp is also gorgeous and fits the theme perfectly.
    Another dress that I love is the one Ksenia Stolbova wears in the FP.

    My favorite so far is Julia Lipnitskaya's red dress for the LP. The looks she gives at the beginning and end of the program are a wow moment for me. Quite a complete package.

    Joshua Farris' Schindler's List costume....gorgeous costume for a gorgeous skater skating a gorgeous program.

    Artur Gachinski's grey Anna Karenina costume...any costume that makes a man look like a proper gentleman is A-okay with me.

    Hmm, they're both grey.

    Well for a colour swap, I also liked Max Aaron's SP costume...for a different reason. :grope:

    Gracie's two new dresses, especially the red SP one. The full grooming included (red lips, nails, regal hair, etc.). Absolutely PERFECT!

    Now for some fun: I wonder how many ladies competitng in the Team Event will change their dresses for the singles Ladies event? Sorta like the Venezuelans and Puerto Ricans in Miss Universe, who wear different gowns for the Preliminaries and the televised finals, usually saving the best gown as a 'top secret' for the finals. Ladies will be ladies...the element of surprise!

    I don't think any costume is more chic than Marissa Castelli's Bond dress.

    Meryl's original lavender SD dress. Loved all Ashley's Juliet dresses.

    Madison Hubbell' SD dress. Anna Cappellinis FD dress.

    Julia's red coat

    Yuna's lovely blue dress at the Gala

    Meryl's white dress at the Gala

    Yuna's yellow SP dress and the black/maroon LP dress- very sophisticated.

    I even liked Tatiana Volosozhar's yellow dress in the LP.

    Gracie's blue dress for her LP

    Akiko Suzuki's LP dress is the best dress of the whole Olympics, IMO.

    Yuna Kim's LP dress. It made her look so regal and elegant, esp. in her flowers ceremony pictures. Usually figure skating costumes are very loud, so her subdued elegance stood out ot me.

    Mao's LP and SP dress.

    Anna Cappalleni probably had the most effective dresses. The skirts on both her SD and FD dresses were very effective and showed that ice dancers can still have an in-character, effective skirt despite needing shorter, lighter skirts to effectively do fast twizzle sequences. I think twizzles have probably killed the type of skirts that Anissina wore in the 2002 OD.

    The best ice dance costumes at the Olympics were the Spanish team's FD. Her Picasso dress was stunning and his outfit really enhanced his lines.
