I wanted at least one easy, comfy costume to wear to Costume College in 2015 so vintage seemed like a natural choice. Being a roller derby skater myself, I decided to draw on images from the early days of roller derby and put together a vintage roller girl costume. I couldn’t wear the skates in the hotel, so I carried them with me. The shirt and shorts are from Amazon, and I added the patches to some cheap leggings to make the built-in padding. Not very many people really “got” the costumes, but I had fun wearing it!
