Roller Derby Skater – Stevie Styx ‘n’ Pwns
Stevie Styx ‘n’ Pwns
Hot Wheel Roller Derby
How long have you been skating?
since March 2012
Why did you get involved in roller derby?
My lovely boyfriend and his bandmates shot a video with some ladies from LRD (see it here if you want! http://www.youtube.com/watch?
How often do you practice?
Twice a week, thrice if I can!
What Pads do you use?
187’s all over baby! The derby pro knees are like falling on clouds made of kittens and joy.
What Helmet do you use?
A sexy translucent TSG with my name and number written in my opponents blood!
What skates do you use?
Riedell R3 skates, awaiting the derby fairy to drop a nice pair of renos under my xmas tree *crosses fingers*.
What were your first pair of skates?
Anarchy Havocs. Dodged that bullet.
Where did your nick name come from?
Oh it’s a long-un. Stevie like Stevie Nicks (because she’s my favourite and my middle name is Stevie/Stephanie). Styx as in the river from Greek mythology that forms the boundary between earth and hell (because it’s badass). ‘N’ Pwns because I like to think I have the capacity to pwn sometimes and because Styx ‘nâ’ Pwns sort of sounds like sticks and stones.
What is your favourite part about being a Roller girl?
Scrimming with the hotties! I frequently find myself somewhat overwhelmed by the talent on my team and have to try tone down the fangirl inside BUT I REALLY CAN’T HELP IT WHEN THEY’RE ALL SO DARN GOOD.
Any top tips for up and coming Derby Superstars?
YEAH! Watch out for Clar-Mar Superstar! Her hits are like colliding with walls made of hell and concrete.
