It’s #boutday for the @bostonderbydames!! I can’t wait to take the track with the @cosmonaughties today!! Doors open at 4pm. The @cosmonaughties take on the Nutcrackers at 5pm and the Wicked Pissahs take on the @arkham_horrors at 7pm! All this is going down at the Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington. We will definitely have tickets at the door so make sure to come by if you’re free!!
This mani is, of course, inspired by the incredible @astrowifey! I did her galaxy mani a few weeks ago but this time I added her tribal print on top! This does *not* do the original justice. You must check out her work if you haven’t already!!
I used @laqaandco polishes from @birchbox and @cultcosmetics and fresh paint polishes for this mani! #rollerderby #boston #nailart #ninanailedit #notd #boutfit
It’s a nice skirt. A good, solid red colour, ends above the knee and has a pleated style for extra flounce. But it’s not just a skirt. With this skirt, another piece of my boutfit is complete and another part of my derby persona falls into place.
When I started really getting into derby, I realised some time and effort needed to go into the outfit. As different as the finished product is, I think all rollergirls look for the same things with their outfits. Trying to find a balance between aesthetic and ease of movement, with a consideration for team colours.
I think what I wear looks kind of weird, but in fact, all roller girls look kind of weird, especially out of context. I think the most important thing is we look how we want to look.
So now my outfit is complete. Except my trousers aren’t quite the right shade of khaki, and my headscarf (which I ‘made’ myself, you know) is a bit small.
