Tune into Dragged every Thursday, where drag queens Marti Gould Cummings and Jasmine Rice LaBeija help to transform and make over everyday people into their dream versions of drag queens.
This quirky woman with two-toned hair wants to transform into a sinful anime-loving drag queen with a glam side. And who are we to say no?
On the latest episode of “Dragged,” contestant Vanessa wants to become an anime-inspired, dramatic queen reminiscent of famed drag queen Kim Chi. Vanessa tells hosts Marti Gould Cummings and Jasmine Rice LaBeija that she has always loved drag culture and drag shows, inspiring her to give the art form a try.
When it comes to choosing a name for her drag queen persona, Vanessa decides to play on her sacrilegious online alter ego.
“My username on a lot of things — and I think it’s hilarious — is Catholic Guilt,” Vanessa tells Cummings and LeBeija. “So I was thinking like Cathy Lick Guilt.” It’s a hit.
Cummings and LeBeija pick a gold sequined dress with killer sleeves, sky-high red heels and a gigantic red wig for Vanessa. With glued-down brows, a thick layer of powder and a healthy dose of glitter, Cathy Lick Guilt is ready for her drag debut.
“Oh girl, you look like you are full of sin,” LeBeija says as Vanessa serves looks.
“This is stunning honey. She is resurrected,” Cummings says. “She is the new Lazarus, honey. Back to life. Reborn!”
This divine creation closes out with a group tongue click, so you know it’s a solidly sinful transformation.
