What I Wore: Tropicarnage

Tropicarnage is Queensland's roller derby tournament. It's also amazeballs.

The 2012 Tournament was held at Morayfield Leisure Centre, back around my hood. Eleven leagues from around Queensland and north NSW competed. I really want to do a review on the weekend, if I have time and energy as it was an amazing, full weekend.

It wasn't easy for me to choose what to wear as I don't feel quite comfortable enough in summer, short clothes. I had to also wear something comfortable as I was to be in them for up to twelve hours plus I was sure to be running around, sitting on the floor and on chairs and looking after sesame.

The first day, Saturday, was hot. Around 30 degrees and even the big ass fans (they are huge fans with donkeys on them, they're literally big ass fans) didn't stop the sweat. I really felt for the girls skating that day. I don't have a good photo of my whole outfit but it was perfect for the day, comfortable and cool with some derby thrown in.
I specifically wore this shirt for my derby pal who broke her ankle at a clinic we went to. She's a trooper!

The second day NBR were playing so I had to wear my support through a NBR shirt and teal striped socks. I also bought a Towns Villains (TVR) hat as the weather was too warm for my beanie hat. I'm in love with it, it's so comfortable! It was cooler the second and third days which I dressed accordingly to, wearing stockings then jeans.
