Drag Season is on and hitting pretty hard!
First up was a mini-project for fun and promo...
I donned my Reba Areba drag to take on Nicole Kidman and her AMC pre-show screener,
as seen in in my previous post to promote Dennis Hensley's The Mismatch Game.
Before the Mismatch Game was ready to be played, I was seduced by Ru Paul's DragCon!
I almost sat this one out, because I felt a little overwhelmed by the drag explosion in my home that would sit around waiting to be cleaned up for about 3 (potentially 5) weeks. A home in disarray can be quite a deterrent, because why pack everything away when you're just gonna roll it all out 2 or 3 times again in a couple of days... Despite my misgivings about the mess and my basic sense of laziness, I decided that Reba Areba could use the photo opportunities and that I might get to stand next to some shirtless hot guys for a picture or 6. I'm glad I did!
While I had a fabulous time, I also felt like I had been hit by 2 trucks by the time I got home.
I arrived at the RuPaul's Dragcon at 10am and walked around in my dress & cowgirl boots 'til a little after 5pm, add to that carrying around my purse, my camera and all the crap I had to buy to see some drag queens and stuff I bought to support some indie artists & merchants... getting heavier and heavier as the day dragged on... Boy, was I pooped! I crashed so very hard! I thought I was going down for a half hour nap, but I ended up going in and out of consciousness thinking, 'It's too hot, I should turn on a fan, but I can't move because I'm too hot.' for about 3 hours. I was so groggy when I finally got up and moving, then I remembered that I had 2 nights of The Mismatch Game the very next week!
More of that in my next post as Drag Season continues...
