At the start of this year was The Great Southern Slam derby tournament and I went over as a challenge bout skater, this meant I got to play three awesome games, dress like a loon and hang out with the greater part of Australia's derby community. An awesome weekend was had by all but my highlight was being asked to make the team uniform for one of our bouts "Your Mum" v "Baby Dolls" and to town I went with the aprons, we wanted black white and red (to look fearsome) and this is what I came up with. They took 120m of red bias binging, 40 hours of sewing, cutting and swearing but in the end we had 16 aprons and the best dressed challenge bout team in the tourney. Also, Quadzilla wore\kept one, squee!
Once the bout was finished, we each signed each others aprons and mine now lives in my box of derby treasures.
