    I'm working on my collage covers for my notebooks (spiral notebooks, that is) for this semester, and I'm trying to find really great photos of skaters (while skating, that is). If you have any favorite photos, would you mind sharing the links so I can print them and glue them to the notebook? I'd appreciate the help and outside inspiration. Thank you!

    Although she's been criticized for her not-so-perfect leg extensions, what she brings on the ice with each and every element is very worthy of the best.

    I am sorry, I am not sure why. I found it by Googling "Michelle Kwan split falling leaf." It's one of my favorite moves by her.

    Is this her Spartacus dress? :swoon: She was always the best-dressed skater.

    YEP, and obviously she was, and still ranks the top even amongst current skaters:)

    Thanks! I got reminiscing of this dramatic program.
    While Michelle's best performances came from other programs, her Scheherazade is one of my all-time favorites.

    Yagudin and the ice, oh, well :swoon:

    V/M, their fierce OD
    Oh, yeah they were fierce even in their earlier career.

    D/S's MATRIX!
    This takes energy, too :D

    He did Matrix, too:cool:

    When will we be able to see this wicked smile of Sandhu on ice? His edge on ice was CRAZEE!
    Look at his "line"

    Mr. Orser, so handsome and so great.

    From his performance of Tribute to Vaclav Nijinsky, Evgeni Plushenko


    Do you see that in her eyes? It was a different, yet special sentiment since Michelle had been away from skating for 3-4 years.


    Bonus round, FYI, I'm no hater:p
    Brian Joubert, what's he doin'?
    So serious as always:D
    Because he's capable of this, I can't help falling in love with Plushy.

    For Michelle, This one is so iconic. Love this position. Joy, excitement, exhilaration...you can see it all in her face. My all-time favorite magazine cover. This is perfection! She looks so relaxed but she's in mid-air! The position is perfect, the dress is gorgeous, she looks amazing...so beautiful. This editorial pic was my desktop picture for almost a year! Stunning!

    Yuna looks so gorgeous here.

    This is the Mirai I miss so much...the lightness, the happiness...*sigh*

    Mao looks so pretty here. This is an incredible picture too -- lovely position.

    I liked this one of Michelle and Sasha on COI. There was a really pretty one of Sasha in this purple outfit for Seventeen Magazine but I can't find it...

    I think it's the Scheherazade dress in the Figure Skating museum in Colorado Springs--at least, it was when I visited a few years ago. That dress is incredibly TINY and very lovely.
