Death Has Left the Building

The Ice Show is over.

Scariest thing about it? Skating with that hockey stick. I swear, if I do this again, I'm going to work on learning how to do a spin or even a crossover with that stick. And proper hockey skating in dance boots. I felt like a pre-alpha skater with that stick. Tried a 3 turn with it---not doing THAT again.

Second scariest thing? Skating with a hockey stick in the Finale. Dozens of little kids going really fast. I just skate off back stage rather than be on the ice in the melee' and run the risk of tripping or whacking one.

I don't know how the costume looked from the stands. If you were there, please let me know if the bones showed. I'm not really satisfied with the look of the 'robe'. Maybe next time, I'll go with a cape, or oooh, a custom costume. Let me tell you, it would have been cheaper to go custom. There's probably $150+ in all that stuff. The floaty glittery fabric alone was $11 a yard! And I think I cut it wrong. Sigh.

On the other hand, the vertical line on the leggings does make my legs look slimmer. *wink*

I skate on Team Death
But now that I have the costume, I'm wondering if I can do a Dance Test in it,

Maybe, the Midnight Blues? Hmmm.

Although at the rate I'm going, that costume might be a heads up to the judges on my ability to do the outside Mohawk in the Rocker Foxtrot.

*Sigh*  Back to real skating for me. See you at the Ice Show next year!


  1. You look totally awesome! Hope you had a good time.

  2. Wow. You do look awesome. I feel like listening to "Faeries Wear Boots" by Black Sabbath.
    (I'm an adult skater who loves your blog.)

  3. Deeply impressed.

    Must use it for tests. Or as practice gear. Would love to see the reaction from the general public...

    1. Those of us in the show were told we could go on public and warm up. So, by the time I got there, the public had seen a lot already. :-)

  4. I love it! I've been looking forward to seeing the picture and it does not disappoint.

  5. I would have cried too if you enter my rink hobby complete with the mask... Great job!! :P
