Saturday night's all right for writing

So, as promised, here is the puzzle I presented on Saturday night (the solving of which will eventually be seen as part of a Discovery Channel documentary, probably around the end of the summer sometime) -- and here's the outfit worn at the event by my co-presenter Erin, seen on the mannequin as well as in action. (The swank sweater I'm wearing in the second photo was knitted by the lovely Lorinne, who also documented me photographing myself in it for a future installment of the Tie Project.)

UPDATE: You no likey the pdf? Here is an Across Lite version. The clues with asterisks indicate either recently coined words or archaic words waiting to be repopularized.

Any chance of getting this puzzle in Across Lite format?

Sure, although I'll have to do a little bit of reformatting first, so it won't appear instantly.

I got two of those really much too quickly (not counting "[solution to 1-Across redacted -- Ed.]", which one can never get too quickly).

Hmm, is there something special about 1-Across? The constructor of this puzzle didn't have some sort of agenda, did he?

Great, now I'm embarrassed *and* laughing.

Can the solution be found anywhere? I've managed to complete all but two squares.
