Cute Roller Derby Costume

To make the helmet, I took a kids’ construction helmet and covered it with duct tape. I printed some derby logos and taped it over the helmet and my shirt, which I shredded.

I sewed my spandex shorts using some simple workout shorts as a model, and made my protectors with foam, Velcro and spandex fabric.

The roller skaters were the most fun part!  I got super cheap ($8) shiny high sneakers.  Then got $1 flip flops and glued the soles together to make the sneakers higher and have space to glue the wheels, which I made with plastic caps and covered them with glittered foam.

I posted pictures on Facebook and actually got an invitation to come and practice with a roller derby team in PR!!!!
