Genre: Roller Derby
The theme for Genre this month is Roller Derby, and the Derby girls are out in force across the grid to celebrate. Everything from the best neon mini skirts to knee pads made for combat is available for ladies who skate around the track dispensing justice on the other team. There isn't much for men - several of the accessories can be resized but the clothing trends toward boobs - the texture layers of the Vengeful Threads outfit might work, though; looking close I saw minimal boob shadows and the bra piece is separate form the mesh. For women this outfit is a ton of customizable fun. It comes with Omega appliers for the texture pieces, which are the bulk of it, and rigged mesh armwarmers and skirt in a ton of sizes. Mesh top, bra, corset, undies, and stockings are all separate from each other, so it's easy to use what you want and leave off the rest. It came with two different fittings of rigged kneepads, though I substituted in SinfulSky's styling kneepads of destruction to mix things up a little from pure candy colored aggression. The skates I'm wearing are included, as are fur-covered boots for off the track and a matching helmet.
The kneepads from SinfulSky work very well with the rest of the look, two dangerous flats of shiny silver spikes that fit easily over the knees and move well with every pose. I substituted out Vengeful Threads' helmet in favor of a hot pink and gradient starred helmet from Spot On, with wonderful broad straps that fit even around my abnormally enormous fae ears. I love that I can have them sticking out so well, and fitting a short hair under the helmet was surprisingly easy given how hard hats can be to stuff hair into. I love the colors of it, too - bright, brash, solid and shining, it is a helmet meant to blind my enemies and rally my cohorts to victory! The smallest touch was the sweetest, though - an adorable necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai in the style of a roller skate bearing threaded on a bit of cord - the only proper accessory for a derby girl obsessed with her skill and her art.
Really, this Genre is a must visit for anyone with a derby heart, and afterwards we can strap up and make a few round son the track in competition!
