    That's what costume is! When I first saw her costume in a picture of an article, I though it's yellow but friends there in Zagreb said it's greenish and beautiful with beads. Under the lighting, it looked better and better like sunflowers under the Tuscan sun.

    :yawn: I take it all back--I don't like the SP and Yuna didn't not improve her line after all, at least not in this performance. 73 for that?

    Ummm, sunflowers in full bloom are bright yellow, bordering on orange. I know how they look, in or out of the sun, since we used to grow them at the summer house and even get one every once in a while in the backyard. Yuna's dress is greenish yellow, the color of mustard, if you want to be kind. As I am in health care, other analogies come to mind. :scream:

    Sounds about right. Why did she choose this color? So unflattering. I would guess this dress is just a place holder and she has something else in the works.

    Actually in her interview after the SP she said that they will modify it..

    i think i will give her a break. this is only her first competition.. she seems cautious and nervous. I like this SP..i don't know even though the music is supposed to be sad/emotional i kinda feel happy about it.. which is weird. hopefully she will have time to improve.. and not being careless like what she said in her interview after her SP like the mistake with her 2a.

    I like the dress' design. It would be nice in a shade of red, for instance. The music doesn't call for any particular color, so she should just go with whatever flatters her most IMO.

    The puffy arms are what ruins the dress and somehow draws more attention to her poor leg lines because you aren't distracted by her elegant arms.

    Her costume is olive green and I think she looks lovely in it. I love her SP.

    Hell I'm just relieved that she didn't dress up like a clown. +3 GOE for not taking the literal route.

    I wish she would have really reminded us of Tonya Harding by ending it with "Wild Thing".

    Ehh that dress is hideous. It's the worst combination of yellow and green you can do... At least Nancy's was more gold/yellow colored.

    I really wish David would have given her better music cuts. Send in the Clowns is a such a beautiful piece of music and Yuna's short program is literally the same melody playing for an entire 3 minutes. He really could have mixed it up.

    Maybe she is trying to channel Peggy and her chartreuse dress?

    Personally, I like it when skaters wear "non-traditional" colors. I'm all for people breaking the mold...even if it means your skin looks a little jaundice. :p

    I think Send in the Clowns loses a lot of impact without the lyrics…and when it's out of context.

    You didn't know?

    Part of the reasoning for the rule change is to reduce repetitive music selections. However I suspect we'll see just as many Carmens, Les Miserables, and Phantom....only now with vocals. :p

    Thanks a lot, iloveemoticons.


    What exactly did she do differently at that practice that made her lines look better to you?

    Do you really mean vomit (sorry everyone else) :rolleyes:? If it's of this color, then there is something very, very wrong with that person. As I am not into health care, I can't think of anything else at all.


    I don't see what is so hideous about it. The cut and bedding are nice, although not anything spectacular. The color is untraditional, but certainly not ugly, if only everything that's not traditional and standard is not ugly per se for you.




    Other than that a beautiful program and good enough skate for the first competition of the season.

    lauravvv, in her free skate practice Yuna stretched her body and extended her limbs better. The flexed feet were not as egregious. She really got into the character of the music and used the accents well, although the choreography is to be credited for that. She just seemed more free and sold the program in a way that I was buying. ;) In the SP performance, she was back to the Yuna whose skating I respect for the excellent SS and amazing jump technique but don't really love.

    As to your second question, do you really need colored illustrations?

    Thanks for responding. I'll have to rewatch it.

    No, of course not. It's just that such a comparison reminds me of when someone compared the color of Savchenko's 'Pina' LP dress to a rotten drowned corpse which was not even realistic :rolleyes:.

    I haven't seen that dress but I can readily imagine the color. Can you link the dress, I am curious if what I have in mind matches the actual dress.

    OMG those Korean commentators are annoying in Miki's SP video. And they bashed her jumps!!!

    And I'm wondering where all those Korean people came from in the stands... There are no Korean people in Croatia!

    Haha, I was being serious! After Yuna skated, the cameras looked in the crowd and almost everyone was Korean and the ice was littered with flowers and stuffed animals. But really where did they come from? Surely, they didn't all fly from Korea...
