I am in love with my new Ladies of Laceration uniform. My teammate Eve L. Taco aka Reverend Eve L. was placed in charge of figuring out and ordering our uniforms. Imagine trying to please 11 women, all having different shapes and sizes?? Well, she somehow made the impossible possible and we all were able to agree on a button down, white top. Taco came up with the idea of having our logo embroidered on the front

When I first joined roller derby, I was all about wearing skirts. I loved the idea of a woman, playing a rough sport, while still looking feminine. Now however, I am a big fan of booty shorts aka lollies. Derby Skinz makes such cool designs and they fit really well. I find that it's so much easier to move when you have less fabric flying around. Just how some women marathon runners wear those little bottoms that could pass for underwear. I suppose they have the same concept in mind. Less fabric = swifter movement. Check out Paula Radcliffe's bottoms here:While I love my uniform and wouldn't change it, I felt that The Wicked Wheelers definitely had a presence on the track. Wearing one solid color was a great way to make it look like a sea or in relation to derby, a huge wall. Nothing was split up and though they were already a strong team, the uniformity of their all green dresses made them that way more so.

As fans, what did you all think? Did you prefer one uniform over the other?
