Look at the awesome package from shdwstrm

First is a great shirt....Front...

A 4 part painting of my favorite team....


My cat Lilo approves...


And some awesome extras....


I can't wait...tomorrow is our first bout of the season. Our away team usually wears purple and black but since our visiting team has the same colors...they've all decided to wear silver and black so the shirt is perfect.

Thank yo so much shdwstrm.....you made me one happy Derby fan.

She made me two incredible derby girl pictures....did you draw those?  If so....soooo jealous....drawing is NOT something I'm good at.  *L*



AAAAAAND....my very favorite thing in the box.....little puffy spanky shorts with pink bows!  I am so in love with these!!

Up there in the corner is ribbon that matches the bows...and a package of button...pink glittery roller skates!!  Grin Grin

Yeee! I have my own awesomeness to post from elektrafying; this was perfect after a crazy, stressful weekend.

She made this really awesome stationary set embossed in tons of colors and glitters! I love them!

And also sent the stamps so I can stamp up other papers and fabrics; a seriously clever skate and crossbones, and a Z for my name:

Now to decide who's worthy of recieving notes/letters from me on such amazing stationary! Wink

Then this really wicked tank top, with the Classic City Roller Girls logo done up in crystals! That must have taken so much patience! It's incredible; I freaked out when I saw it.

And for comparison:

The lovely shimmer made it hard to capture the awesomeness, but it's so great! I'm absolutely wearing this to the next bout!

And lastly, a bunch of really cute magnets and pins:

The magnets immediately went on the magnetic shelves above my desk to hold notes/reminders!

Thanks so much elektrafying!! I loved everything! You're awesome!!

That tshirt is amazine zidishaluxe - and if I have the patience, I might try to do something similar with my team's logo - our colours are black and gold (or, well, shiny is what we call ourselves!).

OMG! It fits you so well! *so very very pleased*

I had two bouts in two weeks lately, both of which involved travelling teams, which is why I got to get such a wide variety of merch for you.

Those numbers on your back are WFTDA regulation size, as well (approx 4 inches tall, from memory). I made sure of that! Cheesy I also made sure that the neckline on the singlet was high, because if there's one thing I've learnt from playing rollerderby, it's that boobs WILL make an appearance, and that they should be restrained until the afterparty! :p

YAY! I'm so glad the shirt fits, Z! I kind of guesstimated where the image was going to appear, and I'm happy to see it's exactly where I wanted it to sit on you.

As for the buttons - are some missing rhinestones? GASP! It was the first time I tried putting stones on a button, so I'm sorry if they fell off Sad

I haven't received yet, but I'll post as soon as I do! Yay swaps!

As I said I received from Meggers and it literally made me squee I was so excited.

The first thing I pulled out of the box were these amazing paintings. One is a roller girl in action and the other has my derby name on it. I love them so much.





The next piece I pulled from the box was am amazing mouthguard case. I love the little bomb. Smiley



Then I found a little bag that had an awesome Ohio Roller Girls Shriny Dink Necklace and matching shrinky dink skate earrings. Also in there were two painted bearing necklaces.





She also included a hot pack in a fantastic Day of the Dead fabric.


And last but not least she sent me some derby buttons, as well as some for her team the Dupage Derby Dames. I had a really hard time getting good pics though, so I hope you can get the idea.



Thank you so much Meg. I love it all and it will get much use. Especially since my first wannabe clinic is on Tuesday. Smiley

OMG OMG OMG!! So after four failed attempts at picking up my package - I was finally able to today! At first I thought "wow, that box is huge!"



my mind was racing as to what it could possibly be. I took it home and furiously sliced open the tape and unboxed...a masterpiece!

First up was a bitching mouth guard with a sculpey figurine of the girl from logo of my local derby league, the Rideau Valley Roller Girls. It's also got an amazing rhinestoned skull, which I squeed over.

Also included was a really excellent embroidery hoop with a Charlie Sheen reference to "Winning". What she had no idea (and managed to pull out my head due to her semi-clairvoyance) is that I say "Winning" all the time! Most excellent!



But the piece de resistance is the container the mouth guard and hoop were in - a hand painted, completely customized VINTAGE luggage bag! I was freaking out the entire time, but totally lost my shit when I saw this.



She browsed my wists and was inspired by an Audrey image I had wisted, and of course had her naturally holding a pair of quads. She also browsed my past swap and saw that I had done a RHPS themed swap, so she used a similar font to write my derby name in. AMAZING!

Thank you SO MUCH, Zidisha - I completely love everything and was totally blown away. You put so much work into this, and I really, really appreciate it. Thank you so much for spending the time and effort. AMAZING.

I'll get better pictures later, I just wanted to check in and express my sincere thanks.

Ugh! Sorry you had all of that post office drama! Sad I figure they wouldn't leave it because the box was so big. But I'm glad you were able to get it and so, so psyched to hear that you love everything!

It's totally a good thing that case had your name; I wanted it bad. Wink And how funny about the Charlie Sheen thing! Awesome! Cheesy Really, the things he says...though insane, are peppered with wisdom and insight, I say.

You are oh so welcome; it was all tons of fun to work on!!

Oh, and by the way - for anyone interested in the cross stitch, I got the pattern from katiekutthroat.etsy.com; she's awesome!

A tiny duffle bag.  I really thought it would be bigger when I cut it all out!  *L*



lined it with power puff girls   Grin

I made a couple shirts



with the team logo on the front

and I made a skirt that I had to wrestle away from my 16 year old daughter.  *L*


I sent other random stuff...water bottle, snacky protein food like nuts and jerky.

I had a really good time putting it all together.... Grin

Okay! It's taken me a week, but I finally got some time to upload photos (terrible ones, sorry) of the awesome stuff that Hebe sent to me.

First up - merch!



Woohoo!!

Next up - awesome armwarmers

WITH my number on them - no Texta tattoos for me! (who am I kidding. I love my texta tattoos). Still - I've just put my kit to soak in a bucket of hot water and vinegar because it bloody STINKS, so anything that will provide an extra barrier for sweat is much appreciated.

Then... a robot singlet

I can't wait to bust this one out at training soon. Or maybe just in my everyday life. This robot is that cool!

Finally..... new hotpants!

These shorts have been my DEAREST wish for a very very long time. My team's colours are black and gold, and ever since I donned the gold hotpants, I've wanted a pair that said 'Bite my shiny metal ass'. Because everyone loves a geek reference Wink I couldn't wait to wear these, so they'be been through one hard training session already, and I'm truly considering wearing them at our bout next week. I think I will. <3<3<3!!

Has anyone, perchance, watched the DNN  boutcast that was on tonight (about 7 hours ago) of my league vs Sun State? They are our biggest, toughest competition in Australia, and we won! It was a fantastic game!

and ladies, if you're on facebook...

one of my derby sisters was badly beaten by her boyfriend. we're trying to raise money for her and the derby community has been insanely supportive and awesome.

lori-aid.

she's undergoing a lot of expensive medical care, including facial reconstructive surgeries. and she has no insurance. if you can spread the word, that would be incredible.
