End of Season Derby Style

As I've mentioned in my last couple of posts, The Thames Fatales and the Luscious Lunch Ladies Roller Derby teams played their last home games of the 2011 season on November 5th.   The London teams won both of their games--The Fatales against The Roc City B-Sides from Rochester, NY, and the Lunch Ladies against the "Mystery Machine", a last-minute team made up of players from Guelph and another team to fill in for the team from Toronto that cancelled (and given that the players hadn't played together before, they did a damn fine job of holding their own).  Below are some photos of stuff that caught my eye during the evening:
Lightning Slim was the announcer for the evening - he has one of the best announcer voices I've ever heard, a delightful sense of humour, AND he had very cool boots (see below)
I always notice other women who have short hair, as we are in the minority, and I really liked the shape of this cut, and how the colour looked great with what she was wearing.

Box Kick Betty's marvelous monster boots!
The floor was a mashup of black, white and green during the Fatales/Roc City match
After their game, the Fatales Co-Captain, Mirambo, donned a moustache (in honour of Movember) and some sexy heels to assist the referees
The Lunch Ladies team captain, Mighty Thor, in her "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" booty shorts, hot pink tights and customized helmet.  How can you not love a sport that allows, or more accurately, encourages, you to dress like this?
Another of my favourite derby outfits of the night was the yellow and pink fringe micro-mini worn by Bloodlust Barbie
