"In the roller derby now ..."



Justin Fox Burks

"My shorts are from Forever Young. The top is from Old Navy, but I got it at a Switch and Bitch [for the uninitiated, where a bunch of people get together and trade clothes]. I just got these boots from my sister and I wanted to wear them.

And I'm in the roller derby now, so I wanted to show off my legs."

— Valerie Hopkins, 23, in Cooper-Young
