Oftentimes, 80s fashion can be cringe-worthy, and ice skating costumes are no exception. These costume designers are deserving of a gold medal in bedazzling, and every outfit you’re about to see will make you sing praise to Tim Gunn for the fact that fashion is cyclical. If this costume action happened at today’s Olympics, there would be even more #SochiProblems than there already are.
