Skating Fugly

You want me to skate in WHAT?

The worst of the worst figure skating costumes. Please submit your own!

ALIONA SAVCHENKO & ROBIN SZOLKOWY TRIBUTE MEGA POST #1

In honor of their retirement - and flamboyant taste - I have attempted to find all of their competitive program costumes since they got together in 2005. This task is much harder than I anticipated due to frequent changes in their outfits (one season they changed three times), and questionable labeling online, and I don’t think I’ve found them all. I’m pretty sure I don’t have anything from 2006. Please, please message me if you find something I can add!

Not only will I miss the great chemistry, athleticism, and creativity of their skating, I will miss seeing what Aliona comes up with for them to wear each season. Even though they’ve worn some of the most truly awful things ever to grace the ice, at least it was eye-catching and unique. You would never mistake them for any other pair.

I also appreciate that she convinced Hot Robin to wear a few to-the-navel deep-V tops and several skintight unitards (DAT ASS). Aliona seemed to enjoy showing off their perfectly toned physiques to the delight of male and female fans and non-fans everywhere. She garnered loads of attention both times she showed up in her searingly hot-pink, rather tacky Pink Panther outfit that no one else in the world could pull off.

KUDOS to you two for never being afraid to take a risk in choreography, technicality, artistry and fashion! We will miss you so much!!

Why does every “Firebird” costume have to be so damn literal?

Update: How did I miss the opportunity to make a Hunger Games joke here?

These outfits are pretty bad, and they also don’t go together, so it was very distracting. It was like they just met in the lobby and decided to give it a go in their warm-up gear.

It pains me to do this, because I really love them and their skating, but I hate these outfits. Ok, Fabian isn’t wearing the worst thing ever (still ugh), but Nathalie looks like a 7-year-old. In fact, I think my 7-year-old niece has that exact dress and tutu. And those green tights should be burned immediately and never seen again. I’m cheering for them to win a medal, but I’m sad they might be standing on the Olympic podium looking like that.

New Submission! - Sergei Voronov at 2014 Europeans

Hi! I’ve never submitted before, so I don’t know how much detail you want or anything, but I just finished watching Euros, & Sergei Voronov’s free skate costume really struck me as awful… half red carpet, half Cate Blanchett at the Golden Globes….

——————————————————————————————————————————————

Thank you thank you thank you!!! I love seeing a man in a lacy, see-through lingerie top and red carpet/Santa Claus pants!

These two are skating to Phantom of the Opera and wearing the most boring outfits possible for that music, or maybe any music, really. Caydee tends to look like a Vegas showgirl a lot of the time, and this is no exception. She could totally wear it while getting married by Elvis.
