Ep. 1 "Entrance" 1920s Nosferatu queen who writes beat poetry. *snaps* Dress: found by my drag daughter @nancy_the_girl, Crown & Collar: me From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph 40pg "Look Book" for sale in the shop, link in bio.
Ep. 1 "NYC Hometown" NY street art meets Fashion Week…with props. Hand-painted Jacket: me (I stole the plain jacket from @johnny.velour's catering wardrobe) Crown & Train: Me and Johnny. From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph
Ep. 1 "Gaga" Pierrot monster who likes clapping. True story: before filming I actually forgot to print out any reference photos of this makeup, so I had to recreate Gaga's look based only off a little drawing I did in my notebook on the plane! From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph
Ep. 2 "White Party" Rich White Woman who may or may not be the leader of a vampire coven. Dress: @braxae, Alterations: my radical faerie costumer friend @gonowaytaround Hair: @marcoswigs (original hair from Amazon prime, lol). From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph
Ep. 3 "Princess Uglina" A metaphor for over-thinking... but make it fashion. Braids: made by my drag brother @mr.leevalone, Cage: @vigormortisvelour (original cage by me and @johnny.velour, from a bright yellow hand-me-down from @sterlingsgold). From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph I threw out the original garment for this look in Los Angeles... for obvious reasons, lol. So it was fun getting to rethink the look a bit. I'm getting more Greek Goddess from this than the original Vaselisa Krasavitsa vibe, but I love it!
Ep. 4 "Naughty Nighty" Opulent gothic romance, but in 60s polyester pastels. Peignoir: @nancy_the_girl (she wore it on her wedding night, and is now happily divorced lol) Pasties: a gift from Brooklyn burlesque icon/mentor @darlindajust Darlinda, Candelabra: me and @johnny.velour, Corsetry: Orchard Corset, Hair: @hollywoodcustomwigs From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph
Ep. 5 "Faux Fur" Cossack Justice Warrior Princess. Entire look: me and @johnny.velour. When my dad took me to Moscow for the first time, I fell in love with the folk fashions I saw in museums. This look combines the iconic male cossack silhouette with elements from femme bridal fashions. It is my favorite look I’ve ever done, pays tribute to my roots, and I’m so proud that we built it completely from scratch! From the series by Mateus Porto @orograph
