Hey ya’ll! A little late on posting. I had some difficulties posting this article. My apologizes.
So you want to be a Drag King, eh? Let’s start with building your Drag Persona this week, shall we? First you will need a name. I know a lot of king names are of sexual nature, but that is
Here are twenty examples:
Just remember, be respectful. If someone already has the name you want to take (google it!), ask for permission. If they are local (same state, city, or local tristate area), then
Now, is he the same age as you and/or have the same birth date? Not all kings base their drag image off of their selves. Live outside of the box and create a fantasy character. Where is he from? What is his nationality? What about his relationship and/or career choice? These are some basics.
From here you can delve deeper into his individual personality. Is he a leader, a follower, or just a big ole’ rebel? Is he an introvert or extrovert? Does he anger easily or is he a big teddy bear? What are some of his personality traits, admirable or negative? Any flaws to show or redeeming qualities? What are some of his strengths and weaknesses?
There are so many details to continue onto, but those are some starters. The more you perform, the more you will get into your character and build upon that. Many things can change with one’s drag persona throughout the months and/or years of performing. Next you can figure out clothing you drag persona would typically wear. What are the songs/solo performances will he mostly be seen doing. Not all kings to the same genres each time they step onto the stage. Broaden your interests and let your imagination go wild to create great performances.
This is Drag Daddy signing out until next time…
