Drag Queen Clothing and Make-up
Drag Queen Clothing and Make-up for a look into the fascinating world of drag queens
Vive la Difference! The world of men and women is completely different – with no overlap. Well…………….
Or is there? Of course there is! There is a continuum between femininity and masculinity is a fluid one, and no one shows that more than drag queens and female impersonators.
Female impersonators are men that dress, make-up and conduct themselves in such a way that they look like women, sometimes they are almost indistinguishable.
Drag Queens take it one step up – and make female impersonation into a art form. The world of drag is complete with pageantry, dance, amazing sewing and costumes, singing, humor and amazement.
I have nothing but the greatest admiration for the these fancy boys that have the courage and skill to leave their apartments carrying a purse and then prance about on a stage. My admiration became fascination when I started watching RuPaul’s Drag Race – which has exposed us to and delighted us with the world of drag;
I hope you enjoy my Webnuggetz on the world of gender benders, and enjoy my suggestions on what to give someone who has a drag queen or drag queen fan in their life.
Ru Paul’s Drag Race
February 2, 2009 RuPaul rocked the world by starting Drag Race. Every season approximately twelve queens competed for the honor of being Queen – cash prizes and lots of fame and fortune. The queens perform all kinds of challenges from dance and singing to sewing and we finally found out who had enough “Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve & Talent” to be chosen as the top drag queen for the country.
I love looking at all the queens, they are so marvelous and talented no matter how far along they got in the competition.

Drag Queen Make-Up
Drag Queens spend hours doing their makeup. How Do They Do It? When it comes to the anatomy – they perform cleavage enhancement including cleavage tops – and they “tuck” the other anatomy – a process that sometimes involves duct tape.
Make-Up is Key for the Drag Queen Royalty
This is how those guys get that fabulous face.
Drag Queens as Real People: Parents
Because of their lives as entertainers, and the negative stigma of female impersonators drag queens are often accepted as jokes – but we forget about the human part of them.
This includes being a parent
Beautiful drama with Alan Cumming and Garett Dillahunt as two gay men – one a closeted straight-laced attorney, another a flamboyant drag queen. They accidentally come into the life of a Down’s syndrome boy who steals their heart. The story is touching, heart-wrenching and bound to leave you with plenty of questions. It is based on the true stories of gay men who have adopted children.
If you don’t shed a tear watching this, you’d better check for a pulse.

One of a Kind Drag Queen Treasures from eBay
Creative Coping – a lot of Drag Queens acts come from pain
Many drag queens speak of being abused and bullied because they were different for being gay. For many of them drag is a way of dealing with this – of turning lemons into lemonade. I think this is where the term “fierce” in regards to a queen came from.
Dame Edna Everage is a British treasure. Amazingly hilarious and creative female impersonator, and you will remember her humor forever.
I loved these films of female impersonators from the 50’s. It was not accepted, and in one of the videos a MD comes on to discuss with great concern the perverseness.
Here is more about the art of female impersonating.

Camp Humor – Drag under Wraps
The ‘Queens’ of Camp Comedy ‘What A Performance’ – Williams, Grayson, Everett – DISGUSTING!
Another end of the spectrum from the totally out queens at RuPaul’s Drag Race are the campy queens: who did not announce or admit their femininity or homosexuality to anyone, perhaps not even theirselves.
This made for campy humor indeed.
The World is Made More Beautiful by Female Impersonators and Drag Queens
Whether a pageant queen, freaky queen like Sharon Needles, , club girls or the Tammie Brown who is not quite in any group, she can look gorgeous but she makes her mark in quirk.
