But in their non-derby lives, they are chefs and real estate professionals.
Those dual existences are the subject of a Saturday photo exhibition by derby skater and photographer Jenna Baxter. The exhibit will be up starting at 6 p.m. at Salon Paisley, 2404 K St., hSacramento.
"A thing I thought was really cool was that everyone had their daytime life, but then they would come and play," Baxter said of her fellow skaters in Sacramento's Sacred City Derby Girls league. "I thought it would be interesting to contrast their daytime lives against their personalities as skaters."
Baxter's photos show the skaters in work clothes (or kitschier, sexier variations thereof) and work settings. But they still have on their skates.
Sacred City skater Daddy's Girl, shown above, had to navigate a cleaver and skates during a photo shoot at her workplace, a restaurant. Other photos by Baxter depict a bartender, a real estate agent and a warehouse worker.
Baxter is selling the prints from the show for $250. But her goal for the project was to raise awareness of Sacred City Derby Girls. The league has a big event coming up in February 2013 at Memorial Auditorium.
Saturday's Salon Paisley event will feature derby skaters wearing their wheels, hair-styling demonstrations and a DJ.
