Really good websites for forums, posts, pictures, and the latest info on specific skaters are...

for IRINA SLUTSKAYA.... irina-slutskaya.com
for MICHELLE KWAN...... mkforum.net
for SASHA COHEN.... sashafans.com

I am a member of all of these and they always have the best info, i definately would suggest visiting these for any information you would ever need becuase they all have post boards on the specific skaters, recent events, figure skating news in general, and other random chats and special projects.

I have purchased several costumes from Sk8, They are very well made and very afordable for the fabulous quality you get. My daughter won her division in the light blue costume with lace on front. It was beautiful! You can't go wrong with Sk8.
