I'm working on designing a story about one of the Texas Rollergirls, and looking at the websites of the two roller derby leagues in Austin makes me think there's a slight lack of originality in the team themes. TXRD has one team that's got a kind of dangerous Latina grrrl gang thing going on, and the the Texas Rollergirls have a '70s trashy-disco theme. But both leagues have (1) the Catholic schoolgirl-gone-bad team, (2) the cowgirl heartbreakers team, and (3) the '50s-ish hotrod team.
So in case either of the leagues wants to expand, I drew up this list of suggestions for teams, plus a few notes:
the Mods -- cool dresses, get to ride scooters to games
the Primadonnas -- ballerinas gone bad, can wear pink tattered tutus and holey hose
the Viking Maidens -- horns on hats might get in the way, but long braids could be used in fights
the Emo Kids -- vintage sweaters, etc.
the Juvies -- jumpsuits and a pack of smokes
the Angry Dykes -- it would involve lesbian haircut #2 and black paint under the eyes
the Knitters -- They ain't no grannies in no rockin' chairs!
the Baristas -- aprons, espresso tampers, caffeine kick, art-school glasses
the Supermarket Checkout Girls -- more brightly-colored aprons
the Flappers -- have to learn to do Charleston on roller skates
the Skatin' Goths -- self-explanatory
the Electroclashers -- basically, dress like Karen O. in a magazine shoot
the Scurvy Pirates -- arrrrrrr!!!!!!
