So I decided, yet again, to go out to the drag shows last weekend. I was all excited, 'cause there was a "Charity Event," which started at 8:30 and went to 10:30, then there was supposed to be regular shows at 10:30, midnight, and 1. So, woohoo! Shows all freakin' night.

So I went, and the charity show. . .well. . .hmm. . .how to describe it. . .it was like the "Boy in a Dress Revue." Not a great idea. In fact, we shoulda skipped it. Near as I could tell, it was people who had given money to the charity to dress in drag and dance. I'll admit, I'm a costume snob, and one thing I like about drag is the complete and utter overall illusion which is created when a man commits to being (even if only for a short time) a female. Well, some of these fellas hadn't even shaved. Which was funny, the first time. . .after awhile it was like "Hey friend, I know you went to a lot of trouble to go to the thrift store and find yourself a dress, but I coulda done without it." We didn't want to leave, 'cause we knew the real show would be coming on soon, so we snuck to the back so that we didn't have to interact with these faux-queens and they wouldn't be expecting tips. We were glad we stayed, though when the real drag queens started up. Those girls are so fierce!! Next time, I promise, (cross my heart) I will bring a camera. However, in the meantime, for those of you who haven't yet seen them, I bear stock photos of all three of them. http://www.electrakittydesigns.com/drag.html

Wow...Miss Vicki could give both Angel and Cha-Cha a run for their money (if that's at all possible ^~)

And don't she know it? ;) When she MCs, she ends with "If men can look this good, there is no excuse for an ugly woman." This last time, she was wearing pasties and a G-string and it was amazing. She could strip in a regular strip bar and no one would know any different.

Yes. That scene is my favorite. If she went all the way down, they'd know, but very few bars allow that anyway, so she's be ok.

I won't be going this weekend, since I have to work, but I might think about going next weekend, if I can roust out a few girlfriends who want to come along.
