Derby Fashion

Here's some derby stuff I've come across recently that I really like.

Skate Cardigan by Wicked Skatewear. $39.99. I first saw this at Wicked's booth back at ECE. I almost bought it, but had spent way too much money already. If they have it at Nationals, I might pick it up... I wonder if I could get away with wearing this to work.

Custom AssOgrams by hotacrossbuns. $12.  I've seen some funny phrases, such as "Get Low", "See Ya", "Kill the Jammer".  I'm just trying to find the right phrase for me.  Any ideas?

MEAT socks from Sock Dreams (and other vendors). $10.  I'm not fresh meat anymore, but I wish I found these socks back when I was.  Sock Dreams has tons of awesome derby type socks. I would like shopping spree there!

Monster hat from mymonsterhat.com. $15.  The amazing Anne Persand has a "no discard policy" for making her hats.  All scraps from the hats are made into something.  If they're large pieces, she reworks them into unique custom hats from special requests (she did a unicorn hat at Eastern Regionals!)  Smaller pieces become little plush monsters or are used for stuffing them.  Anne's work is a fun fusion of craft and art - which fits right into the DIY world of roller derby!

Here is Mathundra Storm modeling a custom lighting bolt hat, followed by a custom HoT hat Anne created for Flexi.

Visit mymonsterhat.com to place a custom order.  Anne will pretty much make you ANYTHING.


  1. Lol, all fresh meat should be required to wear the Meat socks. That should just come with the welcome package, rules and regs ;-)
