Continuing with my Lexus Cup of China 2013 Costumes Recap, in my last post I discussed the LADIES and PAIRS costume highlights and now, it's time to "wrap it up" with the Men and Ice Dance--First up, THE MEN:
HERE but for his FS to "Introduction et Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28" by Camille Saint-Saens he wore this look above. The costume had black pants (of course!) and a gray/silver blouson-style shirt with a waist tie. he had barely begun his Free Skate and his shirt was covered in SWEAT! At first, I thought it was a "printed" effect on the shirt. But nope, it was nasty sweat. The sweat was from his warm-up skate beforehand. For this he is excused of course. However, I think it might be time to use a different fabric or at least a darker color. ASAP.
