But first, for those who are new to this, or perhaps interested in getting into drag, let’s take a look at what drag is as well as some tips for dressing as a drag queen. The word ‘drag’ actually is in reference to the performance of masculinity and/or femininity, essentially the performance of gender expression. A drag queen is somebody who performs femininity, a drag king performs masculinity. Drag queens exaggerate feminine qualities for the performance aspect. Drag often includes dramatic makeup, wigs, clothes, and personality, in order to put on the best performance, and despite many thinking that it is the case, you don’t have to be gay to be a drag queen. A drag queen’s performance can vary from comedy, to singing, lip syncing, dancing, and acting, performing at pride, nightclubs, and a range of other venues.
So, what are some tips to help you out with your first drag persona? The truth is, drag is about individual expression. So, there are no right and wrong answers. You will have to make the decisions yourself, when it comes to whether to shave, whether to add some padding that will make you larger in size, boob size, makeup, and wardrobe.

You will also need to decide on the style you wish to go for, what colour of hair what style, and length etc. You will also need to take very good care of your wig, so make sure to get tips on prolonging your wig’s life from the seller.
