Some people watch the Winter Olympics for the athletic feats, others for the eye-catching, and sometimes strange, Olympic uniforms. They've certainly changed a lot throughout the years, but they're always worth talking about.

The Mexican Olympic ski team's Day of the Dead inspired uniforms are a clear standout.

The uniform was designed by Hubertus von Hohenlohe, a six-time Olympian and "prince, photographer, businessman, and a pop singer known as Andy Himalaya and Royal Disaster," according to the Washington Post.

Mexico might only have two Alpine skiers in this year's Olympics, but their uniforms definitely make a strong impression.

This South Korean skeleton racer's helmet is designed to look like superhero Iron Man's mask.

Nicole Hensley, the US women's hockey goalie, displays the Statue of Liberty on her mask.

There was actually some controversy surrounding the image of the Statue of Liberty on this helmet. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) debated on whether or not it should be allowed, as some thought Lady Liberty was too political: "political symbols" are not allowed on Olympic uniforms.
The IOC decided on February 13 that the design was allowed to stay.

Adam Rippon made history by being the first openly gay US athlete to qualify for the Winter Olympics, and thus the first openly gay US athlete to win a medal at the Winter Olympics. His lightning-inspired costume was perfect for the occasion.

Adam Rippon has become a fan-favorite around the world.

Mirai Nagasu also made history this year — she was the first American woman to land a triple axel in Olympic history. Her red outfit is bold, just like she is.

She's also just one of three women ever to land the jump at the Olympics. Her celebration was well deserved.
