We Roll with The Windy City Rollers
In the adventurous spirit of our Fall Fashion Issue, weâ€™re getting inspired by a gang of rollerskating babes that have the best puns in the city. You could say the WINDY CITY ROLLERS marchâ€”well, rollâ€”to the beat of their own drum, but weâ€™re going out on a limb to say this group of edgy ladies are skating to their own bad ass tuneâ€”and kicking butt and taking names! We went behind the scenes with Windy City Rollers to learn more about the hard-hitting sport of roller derby and get a one-on-one lesson with WCR all-star player Ashley Perrin who is better known by her rink-name: Killa Nois. The Windy City Rollers have been Chicagoâ€™s premier womenâ€™s flat track roller derby league for over a decade. WCR features four home teams: the Double Crossers, The Fury, Hellâ€™s Belles, and Manic Attackers. Besides their love for name punsâ€”think names like Mary Poppinâ€™ Caps and Suga Smaxxxâ€”these roller women exude extraordinary confidence and a tenacious spirit that is oh so punk rock, and truly inspiring to all.
