So in September I set my mind to joining roller derby. My mother BEGGED me not to. Of course for valid reasons. She thought i was going to get hurt.... break my arm, wrist, leg etc etc... Since I am a hairdresser... losing function of any of these limbs wouldn't be the best for business. I didn't listen like most children and went for it... Honestly... I think its the best thing I've ever done for myself. I LOVE IT!!! Totally 100% obsessed with it. You feel sooo.... alive. Hitting and skating with other people gives you such a good feeling. Probably because I am an aggressive person hahahaahah! The sport actually became really popular back in the 1930s-40's then took off again in the 70's. If you dont know anything about it you should either watch Whip It or this You Tube Video. I skate for a new league in Orange County called South Coast Roller Derby!!! So fun. Anyone who is thinking about it should DO IT!!! It a full contact sport and pretty intense ( I've had some MAJOR bruises) but its also a kitschy event. We all wear cheesey uniforms and have our alter ego derby names... Mine is Marilyn Monrollher hahahaah I think it fits perfectly. Favorite part in roller derby??? KNOCKING people on their butts... HAHAHAHAHA I am really good at it too!
We had our team photo shoot last month and it was super fun! this picture was taken by our photographer Pepper Cherry check her website she takes some amazing family photos but also MY favorite boudoir, glam, & Pin up!!! If you live in the area you should totally get some pictures done by her! She's super nice and makes you feel comfortable posing.... Especially since we took these pictures down at the Dana Point harbor and there was constantly people walking by... one dumb lady was like " HHHEEEYYY U LOOK LIKE LADY GA GA..." Fucking lady ga ga??? I don't look like an alien! my friend started laughing so hard because it was so obvious the lady had no clue about what we were about... and it wasn't trying to look like Lady ga ga.... I should have hip checked her into the damn ocean! hahahah anyways isnt my picture lovely??? She photo shopped me!!! Now I understand how magazine covers are made.... lots of photoshopping!
here are some pics I took with my camera of me and my teammates
this picture is my favorite... This girl is sooo cute. She literally is 4' 10"... Shes wearing her skates in this picture and I'm wearing flat shoes.... She doesn't have a derby name yet but I think she needs to be " Tumbleina"
What would your derby name be?
