Wardrobe Wednesday

With the excitement of the Winter Olympics (Seriously, did you see the South Koreans get hosed out of a short track speed skating gold medal again?), I thought I would dig out some old photos of me from waaaaay back when I was a kid and took figure skating lessons every winter.

At the end of every skating season, our figure skating club would put on an "Ice Show" as both a fundraiser for the club and also an opportunity to show off our latest moves (Which always included at least one kid in the group falling and getting run over by another member of the same clumsy group.), plus there were costumes. It was also the one time a year my mom would happily apply gobs of make up to my face and help me into my extra shiny pantyhose.

Not exactly sure what the costume was supposed to be or what the skate was for this year but I do remember that while we were all posing for this photo, my left knee went numb from holding it on the ice for so long.
I'm the girl with the terrible perm on the bottom left.

The next year (or maybe it was the year after that even), I landed a special role with another girl and together we were Tweedle Dum (me!) and Tweedle Dee. We stuffed pillows into our giant yellow leotards and wore these crazy orange suspendered pants over top.

Shut up. We thought we were pretty cool.

You were cool!

Oh, and I thought that first photo was of Mae. I was like, "Wow. Where did she dig up that ancient snow suit?"

Do you still have that snow suit? I could use one.
