Godmothers of reinvention of roller derby

sh.jpgthe Scarlot Harlot was in the roller derby for 6 + years. she was the webmistress for bad girl good woman and the texas rollergirls. in that time she ended up with a vault of roller girl photos. the time has come for you to see some of her favorites.

Whiskey L’Amour, the Wrench and Bettie Rage beating the bageeeezuz out of each other.

Whiskey L’Amour pretty much broke her foot off at SXSW 2005, took her skates off and became an amazing play by play announcer. she was also a fantastic marketing director for many years. it’s really cool to have a good photo of her out there hustling on her skates as a Rhinestone Cowgirl. Whiskey just retired from announcing in oct 2007. cheers to Miss L’Amour for all her amazing costume changes.

the Wrench was a Hellcat before she moved on over to the Holy Rollers. then we were both Hell Marys. the Wrench was in charge of production for years. she made it look easy while she also served as captain of the hell marys. she retired at the same time as the Scarlot Harlot.

Bettie Rage let the Scarlot Harlot borrow all her gear so she could join roller derby. the Hell Marys had to attack ms. Rage for her disorderly contact many times but you can’t help but love her. Bettie Rage has been the captain of the Rhinestone Cowgirls and the Honky Tonk Heartbreaker. She has always been involved in the business of roller derby and is the only person in the photo still skating. She has all kinds of tricks still up her sleeve!

these ladies were hugely involved in the reinvention of roller derby. this photo really shows them turning it up and then teaing it down!!! i love it. the wrench has the best face! hope you enjoy!!!

XXOOO Scarlot Harlot
