In my October post I put out a call for models. I really didn’t think anybody would step up to the plate and want to do it. I was truly amazed at how many ladies put their hands up and said “Me, Me, Me” The first message I got was from Steph Warner coach of the Wellington Roller Derby. She said that the girls would like to do it in groups of two or three. Hey, why not, ya get more bang for your buck (but I wasn’t really paying anybody) and have lots more fun playing together! Turns out that some of the other ladies either chickened out (yes I’m looking at you, you know who you are) or just wanted to save all their strength for their practice rather that use up their strength on a long exhausting photo shoot! Well girls, you don’t know what you missed. :D
So out we got to Steph’s place and Cathy Snyder joined us and we began the gruelling process of having our very own photo shoot. Thank goodness I was on the other side of the camera because these girls are beautiful and show off my Warm Winter Wear very nicely. Beware, I took over 300 pictures and had pare down from there, so I’m left with, 15 that I uploaded, and now I have to pick and choose from those. So without further ado, here’s what happened.
It was a lovely warm fall day. A day that couldn’t be wasted sitting doors. they were enjoying the sun showering it’s golden rays upon the land and the soft breeze was blowing that it felt as though delicate fingers were tickling the strands of their silken hair across their faces. But wait, what’s this, who is this strange person with scarves and ponchos showing up with a camera!? Ah, yes, this is the day we are doing the photo shoot with Sherry, from Sherry’s on Main. Well we have an hour or so before Roller Derby Practice, let’s do it.
This is what really happened.
Steph Warner picked me up and we headed to her place while we waited for the other girls to show up, and like I said before, it was only Cathy who came to play with us. I brought a poncho, Blanket Scarf and 3 piece Scarf set and off we went on our photo shoot “I’m ready for my close-up Mr. Deville”
This is our first photo and it gets sillier from there.
Steph is modelling our 3 piece Scarf set made up of wonderfully warm slouch hat and scarf with lovely soft mittens. This is her “I’m the coach of the Bloody Marys, you had better listen to me or else!! Cathy is showing off one of our soft an comfy ponchos, saying, “Whatever”
Now we are getting into the Artsy stuff, again Steph on the left, Cathy on the right… aren’t they pretty😀
Now we’ve switched up our pieces. Steph is wearing one of our Blanket Scarves while Cathy is modelling our 3 piece Scarf Set.
So that you don’t think that our Roller Girls are just posers, they are posing in their Roller Skates. See what I did there, poser, posing. Well, ok, I thought it was funny. :P
Since we didn’t have another, ahem, Roller Girl, we had Steph’s daughter Autumn step in. :D All 3 pieces are shown, the Blanket Scarf, Poncho and Scarf set. 3 pretty girls making a Totem Pole imitation. This is one that I had been thinking about doing, and I think it turned out great!
I think out of the bunch of them I think these ones are my favourite poses. It’s just too bad that I didn’t have one of all 3 of them along the fence.
So there you have it, as I said earlier, it was hard to pick between 300 plus pictures but I think you get a pretty good idea. I want to say a great big Thank You to Steph, Cathy and Autumn, they did a fantastic job for me, as a matter of fact the Ponchos are sold out and I only have 2 of the 3 piece sets available. I do have a few more of the blanket scarves in 3 different colours to choose from. Each piece is priced at just $40. Hopefully I’ll have a new order of the ponchos and Scarf sets in soon.
If you want to have a great evening of watching some rough and tough ladies fight it out on the flat track then get out there and watch the Wellington Roller Derby. Steph Warner is coach for the Bloody Marys and the other team has a fierce and scary name too, Feims. And just imagine what the each of the ladies Derby names are! If you are interested in joining the one of the teams, you can be their new “Fresh Meat”.

The next match is the Winter Wipeout un March/April in Mount Forest.
For our next photo shoot, let’s hope that more of the Derby girls come out and not be such scaredy cats!
