More Springtime Derby Goodness

The Austin recreational derby league had a game this weekend, and derby troublemaker organizer Obi-Mom Kenobi asked me to head up and take pictures. Which I, of course, did. You don’t need to twist my arm to get a chance to add more derby queen photos to my collection.


This weekend’s lineup was the Caped Crusaders vs. the KISS of Death (copious amounts of facepaint were present in that bout) and the Victoria’s Secret Service vs. Poison Ivy League (more lingerie and naughty schoolgirl attire than you could shake a stick at). Excellent fun, and the brunch and after party were delightful.

Seriously, if you live in the United States somewhere, there’s probably a roller derby league nearby you, and if you haven’t already checked it out you should. I can’t guarantee that every league is as awesome as the ones near me, but you owe it to yourself to find out.

    Wait – you get lingerie and naughty schoolgirl outfits AND they feed you? Whoa – you really do suffer for your art dontcha? 😉

    I know this will not come out witty at all, because it’s one of those “you had to be there” sort of things (and where you had to be was at the party in my head), but….
    I swear that as I was reading along I was seeing all these KISS and VSS girls in my head, and then they were all at some Jane Austen style “delightful” tea party with tiered servers full of petite fours and tea sandwiches and speaking with enlgish accents and whatnot. And I laughed out loud. So thanks for that 😉 LOL
