Missi Blue is the sole owner and operator of Endure Skatewear, and a badass roller derby chicka.
As a roller derby player myself i’ve loved and owned Endure Skatewear products for years. The shirts are SO soft, perfect for wearing to derby practice. When Missi asked me to help her with some promotional photographs for her apparel line, the answer was a definite YES! She is such a talented artist and designer, coming up with all her design concepts on her own.
She takes these designs from initial concept to finalized product in such a short amount of time, too! When she posts new items for pre-order, the local roller derby community eats it up! It’s hard to find quality derby apparel, and Missi has definitely cornered the local market with her high quality products.
It’s clear that Endure Skatewear is something special. Especially when so many people were willing to spend their Sunday up at THE CRACK OF DAWN just to help!
This photoshoot was definitely fueled by a LOT caffeine, adrenaline, and skating. Also just a general love of Missi and the products that she produces. All of our models for this photoshoot were skaters in some fashion. Whether it’s roller derby, skateboarding, competitive skating, you name it. Endure Skatewear speaks to all types of different athletes.
Missi also works as a pretty amazing tattoo artist, and is currently working on incorporating some new designs into her shop that cater to those who enjoy tattoos/tattooing. Be sure to check her site out and keep an eye open for those new items. If you are into skating of any type, love tattoos, or just like to support small businesses, check her out at www.endureskatewear.com
Here are just a few promotional shots we took for her t-shirt line!
