Rising above the crowd

The Dockyard Derby Dames roller derby league is high camp, and that’s where the real attraction lies for most players and fans. Bad-ass hot chicks in tight outfits and quad skates zoom around a track, hip-checking their opponents into the railing. Nice.

Their fans, well, not so high camp. Every hoodie and T-shirt in Tacoma must have hung out at the Dames’ Championship Bout last Saturday, both men and women. Zzzzzzzz.

Then there’s Michelle Walters. Screw the jeans, T-shirt and Chuck Taylors. One of these things is not like the other!

Walters looked stunning in an A. Byer dress from Macy’s with black 20-hole Doc Marten boots. Her makeup was by Lancome and Estee Lauder. Adhesive jewels on her right temple and left arm were a nice touch.

“My sister, Ace Spastic,” was a Dockyard Derby Dame for the first two bouts,” she explains. “I’ve been a fan ever since.”
