Vampire Fab, Asymmetrical Bodysuits, Chippendale's Hair, Retro Costumes and a Toreador:
Don't Try This at Home: Stolbova and Klimov of Russia, 2012/2013 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Cup of China, Shanghai China
Continuing with my Cup of China 2012 Costume blog recaps here--now--as promised--the PAIRS--we begin with one of my favorite Pairs Costume Looks of this season so far...
I especially LOVE the tiny sliver of red sequined applique attached to her neckband, representing the blood spilling from the "Vampire Kiss". And take a look at Fedor's too-pale makeup: soooo perfect!
Speaking of perfect, his costume as well: fabulously detailed waistcoat/vest, ruffled blouse, the contrast back with slit-open back. Both of their costumes were Vampire-PERFECTION!
Skate America, but upon further inspection I am questioning my opinion of her outfit. Pang wore red and black lace--very typical Spanish costume colors but there was not one Sevillana ruffle in sight. Hers was (supposed to be) a modern and very sexy Señorita. But, it was a little "all over the place" with the details: There is a one-shoulder strap, lace in the midriff, at the hem and on her arms, and then, there's something that looks like a horseshoe detail/design on her torso. Upon closer inspection, it's two steps away from looking like a whickety-wack mess. What do you guys think?
