Liverpool hockey girls: Queens of AU
They dressed up as pre and post 2007 Britney once
Sports teams of Liverpool, listen up: there’s no point in AU anymore. Give up and go home. The UoL Women’s Hockey Club is in town and they’ve won the AU battle.
Forget slap dash outfits you haven’t really thought of, or rugby boys using the night as a opportunity to go topless. The hockey girls kill their looks every time they dress up.
We’re talking full on Heidi Klum and Seal halloween looks, before they divorced (and maybe with a little more cardboard and duct tape). They’re bold, brash and fucking hilarious.
The hockey girls don’t do half-arsed: they aren’t going to run the ball half way up the pitch and then chuck it off the astro. They go the whole hog, even with their dressing up. Here’s a compilation of the very best hockey girls AU style, including Miley Cyrus (and her wrecking ball) and Britney, both before and after the breakdown:
Airplanes and air hostesses
Boats ‘n’ Hoes
Check out the dedication to that ship
Builders ‘n’ Bricks
Simple, but effective
And her wrecking ball.
Carrots and Bunnies
(Although just the carrots here)
Britney (before and after 2007)
Social Sec for the club, Lauren Roberts, told The Tab: “We go out every week and Wednesday hockey nights are the best nights of the week. There’s always a massive group of us and it’s a good laugh.
“We go to Brookhouse, Faculty, Popworld (and Envi). My favourite outfits were Miley and Wrecking Balls (that’s what we won AU with) and Pigs in Blankets as our Christmas social.
“I try and keep the costs low by picking fancy dress that can homemade but looks effective.”
