Headstand Color: Pairs skaters Tiffany Vise and Don Baldwin--2013 Prudential U.S. Championships of Figure Skating at the CenturyLink Center, Omaha Nebraska
Finishing up my Figure Skating Costume Recap of the 2013 Prudential U.S. Championships of Figure Skating which happened last week in Omaha Nebraska, it's now time to discuss the PAIRS:

I like the purple and black colors of the costumes, designed by Erin Ovens-Scalzitti and Mare Talbot. I thought Tiffany's look reflected a sexy Latina-esque beauty but there were some details I was confused about such as the white bra/bandeau top peaking out from the plunging neckline and maybe too much criss-cross straps with less-than-expensive looking diamante trim. I think her costume needed some editing and revising.
Theme from Cocoon by James Horner--so yeah, somehow they used this above as an inspiration...and turned it into this:
Congrats to little Marissa Castelli and very tall Simon Shnapir for getting the Gold!
