Such A Drag!

This is a dress-up post, I actually took the photos before Christmas and totally forgot about them! This is not my first dress-up post, older readers may remember THIS and of course we have my TV dress-ups too!

Some of you will know I am a huge drag queen fan, the make-up, costume design and time that goes into transforming men into stunning women in the name of performance, art and fun is incredible. 

My dress/make-up is actually inspired by the film 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch', although fictional character Hedwig is actually a transexual rather then a queen, but the rockstar performance is what it's all about. 


Hedwig and the Angry Inch -  2001 played by John Cameron Mitchell.

Of course probably the worlds most famous drag superstar is the eleganza extravaganza - RuPaul!

So here it is, my Hedwig inspired make-up and dress-up:

I clipped my hair  back, pulled out and sprayed. Although my hair is shorter (and real) so I didn't quite get enough volume!

Shirt - Vintage via Ebay.

I used a dark blush to create add contour and emphasis on my cheek bones.
With my lipstick I added gloss and pink eye glitter - the photo doesn't really pick it up but it looks banging!

When my mum saw these she said 'who is that?!' haha!
Along with this on the same day I did a Nicki Minaj dress up which is definitely more full-on! I'll be posting these soon ;)

Hope you all have a great weekend!
