    Test session dress crystals?

    Is it okay if your dress for test day is stone simply. I bought my daughter a new competition dres. And was going to use that for the test and stone it after her test. However the test session got moved to the week after her comp!

    I've worn competition dresses for tests (dance) with no problems. As long as the dress is presentable and doesn't interfere with lines, etc, it's fine.

    If she's doing a freestyle or dance test- it's common to skate those in competition outfits.

    If she's doing a moves test, it might be more rare, make sure to have her hair in a casual style (like a ponytail) and no more than minimal make up, so it doesn't look like you are trying to look overly fancy. And since you said "simply" stoned, it's probably fine anyway.

    Don't over think.

    she is doing moves and free skate. dress came with strappy stones on the back (sharene). I wanted to do the neckline like a necklace but am worried it will be too much for the test. There are no stones on the bodice of the dress.. Just some white lace

    You can always have her wear a thin warmup jacket or wrap over her dress for the MIF test.

    I have seen people do freeskate tests in plain dresses with no stones or trim whatsoever. And they passed.

    At the lower levels, especially, as long as the skater is neat and clean, and the dress fits and is age-appropriate, the judges are going to be more concerned with the skater's performance of the moves.

    I agree, don't overthink.

    When I judge, it makes no difference to me what the skater wears ... as long as it's dignified.

    I have a "lucky" testing dress that's pink and purple from Del Arbour that I've always done MIF tests in and it has no stones. It's a simple practice dress and it's done me well. It sounds like what you have planned is totally fine. Good luck to her!

    The bigger question is did you wear the patch skates?

    For the figure's test, I did indeed wear those skates.

    They were finally retired a few months later!
