I'm going to keep it short and sweet this week, folks! Since the Drag Race aired its clip show Monday night, there's not a lot to kiki about! Traditionally, I like to take RPDR's "recap week" to revisit some outfits and moments that I didn't get a chance to draw earlier. From your feedback, the overwhelming consensus was to draw two particular looks--and I was eager to illustrate both! Plus, I couldn't resist two different animations of some of this season's goofier scenes.
I loved Dela's depiction of Bianca during the puppet mini-challenge--just one of her many shining moments. There certainly wasn't any lack of goofy challenges this year. And obviously, there was a wealth of talent among these queens.
My main complaint about the season as a whole is that the depictions of these queens sometimes felt heavy-handed and manipulative. There weren't any major rivalries or conflicts that monopolized the season, which was largely a good thing. However, it seemed like the tension that did arise among some of the queens seemed forced or fabricated. But yes, I know, it's TV.
And it was a good season! For those of us who have been watching the show since the beginning, maybe certain stretches of it felt predictable or repetitive.
But in the end, it's all about the talent. And besides the queens, Ru was able to showcase her skills, too!
I particularly loved Ru's ridiculous performances last week during the shoot for her music video!
This look of April's was one of the standouts of the season. She has some seriously gorgeous style, and I wish she had lasted longer on the show to bring more of it to the runway.
Bianca's black and white gown was the other recommendation I got from your feedback. At first, I wasn't sure what to do with the fairly simple silhouette of this outfit, but in the end, I had some fun with it!
At this point, it seems crazy to think of any other queen snatching the crown next week. Except that Adore has emerged as such a stellar talent!
So.... it should be interesting!
