If you didn't know, Maria Butyrskaya is my favorite skater of all-time. I don't think anyone else will be able to pass her for that great "achievement". But I do remember being a 10-year old and having a WTF? slash terrified moment when I was watching the 1997 World Championships and she came out for her short program with this.. lovely.. costume:
Eh.. it wasn't until the next season and I saw her Otonal free skate at an early Grand Prix that I really started to follow Maria closely.
