Drag queen costumes can come from anywhere. From drag on a dime to pageant pieces, the best ones can only come from creative inspiration. Everything is fair game.
Used gloves, discarded caution tapes, worn out shrink wrap and many, many more can find their place at the pinnacle of a competition of transvestites who won’t be beat. For its sheer entertainment value, a contest of this nature tends to draw huge crowds. Social media often show just how extensive the following is.
Fans can get quite obsessed with supporting their queens. The more creative their idols, the greater the following. The audience knows best. It can smell fear or a phoney from a mile away.
So with such high expectations in place, competitors have no choice but to outdo each other and most of the time, with their most challenging stiletto heels. Knowing how to lip sync is likewise an expected talent.
