21 Figure Skating Costumes that Were Obviously Designed by Somebody on Acid

craziest figure skating costumes all-time

There are a lot of interesting uniforms at the 2014 Winter Olympics, from the mariachi ski suit of Mexican skier Hubertus Von Hohenlohe to the seizure-inducing pants of the Norwegian men’s curling team. However, nobody—and I do mean nobody—can match the insanity of the figure skating costumes. These things get more extreme every single time out. In fact, I’m fairly confident that by 2022 they’ll be skating totally nude—but with metallic body paint all over and flashing LED lights implanted just underneath the skin.

In any case, today I thought we’d pay tribute to the fabulous psychedelic drug-fueled world of figure skating costumes with a list of the craziest costumes in the history of the sport…that I could find on the internet. Take a look. You won’t regret it. Probably.
