Hi folks! It's just me and my dumb art this week. My interview didn't work out, but that's okay, because after talking Drag Race non-stop for 4 days in Seattle at Emerald City Comic Con, I'm happy for a break! (Thanks to everyone who came by! It was great!) With the Wizard of Oz runway, I was really hoping for wild, avant garde looks from the queens. They don't assign you a poppy-fueled interpretive dance challenge if they don't expect you to pull some crazy shit, right? But the majority of queens brought out underwhelming looks. Some simply lacked the imagination, others probably lacked time.
In any case, let's get to the good stuff:
I liked the looks of Thorgy and her partner -- I didn't actually know what the "Citizens of the Emerald City" looked like, but after googling them, it's clear that Thorgy stuck pretty close to the source material while giving her looks a sleek, simple consistency.
Kim and her partner came out in fairly simple garments, but they had a fabulous graphic appeal. And those brooms! Trading, hitting, flying on them. Maybe even sweeping with them! Plus, I'm a total sucker for stripes.
I was excited that Naomi stepped it up this week. I like her a lot, but I agree with the judges that she needed to branch out beyond her lingerie sets, and it's clear she's learned a lot from those Barnes & Noble fashion magazines!
