The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are off to an exciting start in Sochi, Russia, givingĀ local police force international fame and bringing us too much information onĀ Bob Costas’ left eye. Figure skating has always been seen as a premier event at the Winter Games, encompassing elements of artistry, athleticism and pizazz. Fact: When it comes to outfitting an Olympic skater, one can never have too much glitter.

Medals have already been handed out for Team Figure Skating, with host country Russia taking the Gold, Canada the Silver and the United States the bronze, thanks to a strong performance by Ice Dancing duo Meryl Davis and Charlie White. Men and women’s individual programs are slated for later this week, where Ashley Wagner will attempt to top her “not impressed” face and Gracie Gold will try to live up to her name. No matter who wins or loses, ice skating is always worth watching for the bizarre fashion. With competition officially underway, we take a look at the most mind-boggling outfits seen on Olympic ice thus far.
