gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (gwen watches skating)
So one of the things that happened at the CSOI show which sparked this whole terrible figure skating feelings spiral was that Joannie Rochette skated to Robyn's Indestructible. In a shiny black catsuit. (Here's video of the Vancouver version.)

I've been in a lot of internetless places lately, wherein I coped with boredom by making icons. Credit for the original photos goes to Tina Tyan, Brett Barden and David Carmichael, and Andrea Chempinski.

(Content Note: In-context, the ~sexy photos~ are taken coercively, but that's not apparent from the caps I chose?)

I have a lot of Thoughts about this scene, how it is about queer ladies co-opting the male gaze narrative inherent to pin-ups, but I'm not particularly articulate at the moment, so you're getting icons instead.

I used to be so much better at coming up with appropriate quotes/lyrics/etc for cut texts I am drawing a blank here... )

(This post doubles as a one-day-and-five-minutes belated Canada Day post)

There were a lot of things I was considering doing if I got this square, it applies very readily to nearly all my fandoms.

But then while I was messing around on youtube watching through everything Kurt Browning has ever done, I came across this:


Kurt: "I'm trying to skate as a figure skater in hockey skates. It's not a comedy, it's a real solo, I just want to show a different aspect of my skating. And again, after twenty years, you're always trying to reinvent yourself. And Canadians love hockey, so I hope it'll work. But it's-- I'm not relaxed. At all. Not at any second in this program am I relaxed. I've got a hat to deal with, and a tie flying around, and a jacket, and these hockey skates, with about this much [gestures, about an inch, inch] balance spot on it, and I have to remember constantly that I'm in hockey skates. If I forget for a second, I'll switch back to figure skating mode and I'll be on my ass in a split second. And I don't relax until I'm done, and even then, I gotta get off the ice."

So what we have here is an internal hyper-awareness of the fact that he's dressed in clothes that aren't his, while outwardly projecting ease and coolness. That's-- well, definitely dress-up kink, and it's incredibly hot. The tension of trying to skate clean and perform well-- perform Sinatra and Jagger respectively-- while not letting yourself actually be comfortable. There is some fascinating shit going on here. I could sit here and babble excitedly about this all night, but this is a picspam post so probably I should get to the pictures and such.

Two more videos and a bunch of photos behind the cut )
