Massachusetts Terminology

Lizz and I decided to put our pair of Escaflowne costumes on hold until 2004. (Wow…2004 seems so far away!) We’ve already got other plans for 2003 and there’s no way we’d be able to get them done for 2003 cons and still have them look good…since neither of us really know how to sew […]
