    I had to wear a leotard much like that when I was in jazz at 6 years old. The premise was to take a cheap black unitard (sleeveless and to the knee), stick as many bright glittery shapes and as much gold fringe on as possible, and then when you dance against a black background it supposedly looks interesting…

    Trust me, it doesn’t – I think I started crying halfway through the number and ran offstage. My fashion sense was deeply aware of what a crime that thing was even at such a young age.

    I’m betting the stand-out is in drill team, not gymnastics!

    Linda knew if she lost the bet, Her Nemesis on the Gymnast Board would make her pay, but she had no idea how mean Rebeca could be.

    Oh NO! Not the dreaded leotard! I am so glad I was never photographed wearing mine!

  13. Shannon says:

    Does it make sense the term “campy” for this? It’s just kind of well, I can’t quite describe it.

    I wonder how many people went into a seizure when she started her routine?

      Thief, I was totally going to write that! I swear she could play her ‘younger self’ in a movie, makes you wonder what she looks like now…

  21. Heather says:

    Hot.

  22. Jewelsgrl says:

    Those shapes sure are exciting.

  23. L. Mao-Smith says:

    I get the lightning bolt… but what are the other shimmering shapes supposed to be? Must be some occult code going on.

    By the looks of it, I think we have two gymnasts, one tap dancer and one jazz dancer. Could be worse, though: one year at my ballet school’s dance recital, the jazz class wore black unitards with black garbage bags over the top. Edgy.

  25. Brenda says:

    Wow, bleached-blonde hair and a wizardly one piece body suit. Why doesn’t she wear a normal gymnastics outfit like the other three? She has taken DIY to the extreme, with her hair and her outfit.

    Did somebody say “Sha-Zam?”

  27. Jeneva says:

    poor gal in red had a broken wrist. Bet she lost the arm wrestling match with the blonde to wear the “cool” leotard.

  28. Kelly says:

    Needs more compound bows.

    This is the type of picture parents blackmail their children with.
