i haven't had the chance to photograph more outfits, but us derby girls prefer things less, um, 'nicey', than artistic. plus with all the safety gear, it's easier to go a little more 'tank girl' looking.
so until i get more pics, here's one of many outfits:

and let me tell you.. in the 15yrs I've been at Caribbean Rollerama, NOT until the 'roller derby girls' (including Cherry!!) has rollerama looked so damn funky! I just lurrrrrrrrrrrrrrve seeing them all at the rink!!! love love love it!! More so b/c it breaks all the rules the club has regarding 'attire' .. b/c they are stuck in the stone age! (that's our rink the b.g again in the pic above!)

Oh, now this is a fun question!! I should formally introduced myself first, I guess. I've posted a couple of times on here. I am Stacey, a mom to skaters. My 9-year-old daughter does freestyle and grudgingly figures. lol My 6-year-old son just loves to skate around. I'm not sure he's going to be interested in figure skating, maybe speed. My four-year-old son says that he is not old enough or big enough to skate yet. But anyway... I will have to take a few shots of her skating outfits and figure out how to get them on here. I have her Gold Skate photo, are we allowed to scan in professional pictures from the competitions?

I cant keep still for 5mins as u can see!
Okay, now this is making me feel bad for not trying to make a skating dress for my daughter. But I did make several costumes for Gold Skate. So, where else do you hear someone say that I made my daughter a teapot skating costume?

Since this thread was originally started in the artistic forum, and since cherry posted up her "uniform", I figured I'd start one in the Roller Derby forum to see the diversity of Roller Girl wear.

here's the thread:

You must forgive me I didn't realize anyone of the other diciplines made as big of a fuss over outfits as artistic folks...so I've been educated for certain. I don't mind folks posting here.

With speed skaters it's to skin suit or not to skin suit, and goes downhill when they post photos of what's too tight

With new outdoor skaters it's what brand of skate is cooler, K2's or Rollerblades. After a few falls, they ask about but pads.

The new Derby, to me, is about marketing and entertainment. The outfits and names are a big part of it what you see.

Session skaters wear whatever clothes or skates you want to as long as you have fun. Sometime they make a fuss if you wear inlines, but accept them if you can skate with the flow

Artistic Skaters? I've heard them say "I need new outfits, I can't wear that, That's what I wore last year" That means, they need a new Dance, Creative, Figure, and Freestyle outfits. that also means $$$....

Artistic skaters should be more in tune with FASHION in real time than 'traditional wear'.. keeping up with fashion is what makes the world go round, it drives everything.. if skating were as up to the minute as the Paris runways you'd see alot more attention on our sport with the costumes being a highlight..

Look at ice skating when the skaters wear a costume by a famous designer, the limelight is on them and the costume, whether they are in 1st or last...

ahhh, big can of worms that one. new school derby (as in the last few years) has two spectrums: the leagues that promote the sporting nature of derby, and those that prefer the spectacle, marketing, etc... my league is about the sport, promoting the hard work and skills of the skaters. we like the fun parts such as names/costumes/dressing up, yes, but that's not the primary reason for doing what we do. and not what we promote our league as being about. i'm not assuming you think it's ONLY about spectacle, but like i said; big can o worms to open is the topic.

Oh, I have that problem myself. lol I am always looking for new dresses for my daughter. I just bought two bags of scrap fabric and am planning several dresses. The good thing is that she is a growing children, so as she grows she'll need new costumes.

Cherry,
I think we are refering to the same thing when we talk about the "New" Derby.

Along with the skating costuming is a big part of all Roller Sports and I've get a few request for photos of Artistic skaters so check out the outfits. I'm not very fashion conscience but I do have a few favorites, and they are all on other skaters

Good points! Being in tune with fashion is part of the package and will help the sport grow. I'm just happy I don't have to worry about it much.
