While there is current fodder for some of the current skates costumes (See this post at Axels, Loops, and Spins or this post), today’s post is about Ilia Kulik. This is his winning long program at the 1998 Olympics. Now, not only did he have great program to Gershwin’s music but he had a costume that made his whole program whimsical and suited the music, although it did make him look like an over sized giraffe. I still love it!
