Image du Jour: Drag Beyond Drag

The Telegraph recently carried this photo of a reveller at San Francisco Pride.

Drag, I sometimes think, has moved beyond mere female impersonation to become something else entirely. This creation, for example, appears to be impersonating an entire ecosphere. I don't know, frankly, whether that's entirely a good thing (I'm a little scared), but it's certainly vivid.


  1. If drag queens, like DJ's, could have "mash-ups," this would be the Margaret Hamilton vs. Eve Arden vs. Joan Crawford mix.

    Probably best enjoyed under massive amounts of illegal substances.

  2. I just love the little tea cozy/eyelash

  3. it's the baby on the cheeks that's just the ne plus ultra.
