    SO happy to see these here…I saw them yesterday and was hoping to hear your take!

  • http://twitter.com/SillyGrrlJen Silly Grrl

    I LIVE for Detox’s look. I gasped out loud when it popped up on my newsfeed yesterday.

    • StellaZafella

      If it weren’t for the color pops in the background I’d swear it was a black and white shot here…fabulous ‘B’ movie Vixen…(how she do ‘dat?)

        I don’t know, but I’m looking for makeup tutorials now.

          Not sure how long the link I posted will stay in moderation… but if you google for ‘desaturated santa’ you’ll find a tutorial that works with the same principles.

        It’s mindfucking. I love it!

      • AnotherG

        It looked like she walked off old Black & White celluloid, like an old movie star stepped out of the screen and into 2013. TLo were trying to think of the times she wow’d us this season. Better late than never. Wow!!

    • Yuval Dinoor

      Same! It’s by far the smartest idea of the bunch and it’s extremely well-executed. I was really impressed :)

    • Pennymac

      Holy Crap!!!! Stunned and amazed!

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      detox out-sharoned sharon.

  • William High

    Surprised to see India Ferrah after she trash talked RPDR and quit drag.

    • StellaZafella

      Buuuut…Ferrah’s not in drag…

      • William High

        Is this a read or is she transitioning?

        • StellaZafella

          I can’t recall where I read it, but I understood that she was in transition or considering it…no, sir, I can be a bitch sometimes but India’s too sweet to read like that.

          • William High

            Ah, last I read was when she was insulting Carmen carrera for being trans

          • StellaZafella

            Oh. Well. If she’s gonna dis Carmen then – you can take my first comment as a read! (snap)
            And add that she’s a second-rate rubber-boobied busy body biatch! (Double snaps and a head roll!) { :>)

          • DonnaL

            I think she unquit, because she’s performing all the time these days. And she’s clearly not transitioning; I think there was some confusion originally when someone said something about her being nasty to Carmen for transitioning.

    • MK03

      Seriously. I guess she’ll still get painted up if they pay her enough…

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    I don’t watch the show, just enjoy the recaps – so apologize if I should know this, but how the hell does Detoxx to that?? Amazing! Black and white photo in color…

    • Amelia

      Her look and Raja’s look are just mindblowing makeup-wise. I guess I conceptually understand how her look could be done, but my brain still breaks a little when I look at it.

    • http://twitter.com/HDizzay Hayley

      My BF and I went as Ricky and Lucy for Halloween 2 years ago and he did his makeup like Detox (well not has professional)! I was the Technicolor Lucy while he looked like he was from the black and white TV show.

      • http://www.facebook.com/candice.booth.79 Candice Booth

        I would love to see pictures. I think all of us would.

  • ChristopherM

    Tyra looks like she applied her makeup with a paint roller.

    • Eric Stott

      True – but she’s looked a LOT worse, and at least she’s not flashing those false teeth.

    • redagain

      Why did she bother to crawl out of whatever hole she is in?

  • Jessi03

    Tyra looks so sad. What’s wrong, Ms. Sanchez?
    You weren’t kidding about Roxxxy. Girl, what is going on with that hi-lite?
    Detox just won my life.
    Love Sharon as drag PeeWee Herman.
    I saw a bunch of pictures earlier of Alaska, Jinkx, and Roxxxie together, so I figured they planned the red. Laskey and Jinkxie look adorable.
    Jade Jolie and Akashia…I can’t even handle y’all anymore. Sashay Away.
    Eta: WILLAM! Girl, you look perfect. I love it.

    • PinkySlinky

      Tyra, honey…whats up girl?

    • Daddadadadaddaaaaa

      Pretty sure that their looks here are just for a performance to open the reunion, and they’ll change afterwards, though. Rolaskinkx, as I call them, may end up looking even better eventually.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    And Manila wins the Campiest Look. But OH MY GOD, I loved both Raja’s and Detox’s looks.

    Funny to see Morgan going the breastplate route. Didn’t she sniffed when asked about padding claiming that it’s a pageant thing?

    And Roxxxy: I can’t believe I’m saying it, but Phi Phi (ugh) did it best.

    PD: I didn’t recognize Tyra at all. Can’t say it’s an improvement, though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14301272 Kate Gorton

    So…Tyra got some work done. Nearly unrecognizable.

    • Eric Stott

      Bit of a shame – her looks were the best thing about her, even out of drag she was very pretty.

    • http://twitter.com/DarrenNesbitt Darren Nesbitt

      Yeah I have no Idea who that is now. :/

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14301272 Kate Gorton

        I KNOW. Bizarre.

    CHi Chi has the craziest eyes!

  • evahansman

    Anyone who says drag isn’t an art form needs to look at Detoxx. It took me a second to realize there wasn’t something wrong with the picture.

  • hughman

    Real Housewives of Bellevue.

  • StellaZafella

    Sharon, Jinkx, Detox and Willam for the drag version of Designing Women… Sharon’s got the Julia Sugarbaker look the house DOWN!

    • StellaZafella

      Who’s gonna bet me that Honey’s got a kaftan on under that Kimono?

      • ZnSD

        • MK03

          “HEEEEEYYYYY!!”

  • jmorino08

    Is Sharon dressed as Pee Wee Herman? That is brilliant. Detox’s makeup is incredible! She made herself look like a black and white photo! That takes skillz.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

  • http://twitter.com/filleduparadis Natasha Nyanin

    Raja and Detox are serving! Painted GLORY. Got to give it to little Jinkxy..she look’s pretty fiece here.

  • rkdgal

    I can’t be the only one who sincerely believed for a second or two that Detoxx’s pic was actually in black and white?! Then the red carpet registered on my eyeballs. But seriously, girl — fucking fabulous makeup!! All T, all Shade, I don’t remember Akashia being quite that thick on the show…and on the flip side, Madam Shannel looks quite slim in that getup! Raja, I still die for your fabulousness.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=527486497 Kirsten Flanagan

      Raja, I die!

    • demidaemon

      I think that’s mostly padding, but can we talk about her and Tyra’s makeup and wigs. Because they are sad and tired. What happened?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Cleary/1201575213 Patrick Cleary

    Manila Luzon’s look is AMAZING! Sponge Bob Realness, hunties!

  • Deac82

    WTF Roxxxy!! Chub-Rub is not cute!

  • In_Stitches

    LOVING the make-up upgrade on Jinx. The paler foundation and subtler contouring flatters her much better than what she was doing on the show. Roxxxy’s skills somehow got worse. Someone’s been playing with the Homer Simpson makeup gun.

    I’m also impressed by Ms. Laqueefa and Honey Mahogany. Honey kept true to her aesthetic whilst upping the drama and Shangela’s face is miles better than it was during her time on the show. Maybe the makeup artist for the Orbitz comercials gave her some tips.

    • http://www.facebook.com/martin.h.gonzalez.1 Martin Gonzalez

      Billy B did Shangela’s makeup for the Orbitz commercial, actually. The queens were supposed to do their own makeup for it but Shangela and Billy ran into each other by chance and since he had criticized her makeup on the show so seriously and wasn’t allowed to tell her how to fix it, he offered to do her makeup for free for the gig.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      I was going to say that Shangela was looking as good as Raven with the makeup. At least some people learn. I also love the fake sword hilt on the hip of her dress. Makes me want to embroider a bunch on my dresses. And I am loving the fabulosity of Shannel’s pic. She’s loving herself and living it there.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=659113572 Suzanne Szlaius

        I simply cannot believe how much better Shangela looks.

  • http://twitter.com/Glam_Dixie Glam Dixie

    I’d love to see closeups of Raja and Detox’s faces, that makeup is just amazing on them both. Shangela looks a little strange, did she have work done or is her makeup just different? Honey Mahogany goes with Roxxxy in the ridiculous column.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Another caftan from the Bed, Bath, and Beyonce collection.

  • Amelia

    Between the crazy-eyes and the dress, Alyssa Edwards looks like she just came from some sort of murderous rampage.

    • Eric Stott

      For me she makes it work, somehow. Remember she’s from Arizona & the big hair and eyes thing is still popular among the women.

      • FloridaLlamaLover

        I thought young Joan Collins on crack with Alyssa.

        • Eric Stott

          True – but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Alyssa NEEDS something interesting.

  • prettybigkitty

    L-O-V-E Raja. She wins everything. Jinkxy looks pretty good. Detox. . . wow. Roxxxy can disappear now.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Allow me to break out some slang I learned from RPDR:

    A lot of these looks are busted.

    • demidaemon

      Word.

    • VicD

      ALL T, ALL SHADE!

    • Melizmatic

      Gurl, bye.

  • Eric Stott

    Got to give them credit, they ALL look good – even Roxxy’s look might be passable on stage, though it’s way too much for the red carpet.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      You have a very generous heart. I think the make up on some of them is atrocious – not just stage-y but really badly done.

  • MilaXX

    I was hoping you wold feature this. Raja is best costume, but for overall creativity and best makeup Detox hits a home run, hands down. She should have busted out this look while on the show.

    • ZnSD

      I doubt that she could have unless she has an airbrush for applying all that body paint. Simply one of the fiercest drag looks I’ve ever seen in almost 30 years of following drag. Just amazing.

      • MilaXX

        But she could have worn a long sleeve gown and just done her hands and face

        • ZnSD

          excellent point. Perhaps she just hadn’t come up with the concept. We could always ask her on FB.

          • Eric Stott

            Probably one of those looks you can’t do by yourself.

          • http://www.facebook.com/martin.h.gonzalez.1 Martin Gonzalez

            She’s credited the makeup artist, Nelly Recchia, who helped her with the look in all the pictures of her she’s posted on Facebook.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Right? I saw that and thought, “Where was this DURING the show?”

    • GTFOBigGovt

      It was done by Nelly Recchia.

      • MilaXX

        Just checked out her website. That is a serious artiste.

      • Jan de la Rosa

        Wow! Thanks for the reference. Her work is amazing.

  • http://www.tumblr.com/tumblelog/lastbutnotleast janinedm

    That hat! Oh Pandora…

  • http://twitter.com/RaankyRaank Raanky

    Raja looks phenom. Honey Mahogony is in a slightly better tailored caftan/mumu. Tyra Sanchez’s face is a hot holy mess of a disaster.

    Sharon Needles and Chad Michaels are on point.

  • ZnSD

    LOL Roxxxy looks like a Thundercat!

    • StellaZafella

      “Thundercat’s are GO!…No, really, we mean it JUST…GO!”

      • demidaemon

        Hey, don’t be getting down on Liono and Cheetara! Roxxxy would be sent back to the Thundercats homeworld, stat.

        Oops, Roxxxy, forgot to tell you it doesn’t exist anymore. Too bad we already launched. ;)

        • StellaZafella

          By the way, Roxxxypuss…Lanie Kazan called, she’s suing you for defamation…and trade mark enfringment.

      • Melizmatic

        “Eye of Thundera, give me ‘sight beyond sight’!”

        *lolz

    • VicD

      Dontcha mean thunderthighs?

  • spooki C

    What did Ty Ty do to her face? She’s totally unrecognizable. I hope most of that is just bad makeup because she was cute on the show (though Raven should’ve won).

    Alyssa looks completely nuts. She looks like a rabid raccoon. I love her but this is so not a good look.

    • ZnSD

      lol I literally laughed out loud when I saw Alyssa. She is unintentionally hilarious all the time!

    • GTrain

      I thought the same about Tyra. She looks like a totally different person to me. Wonder if she had some work done?

    • Sally Brownson

      I think it’s the fact that she put such dark makeup on the inner corners of her eyes, which makes her eyes look extremely close together. She could also have had (bad) work done, but that makeup definitely produces that kind of effect on its own.

      • Fantastic Cat

        I sort of like her eyes. She looks like the 1959 African-American Barbie that Mattel never made.

  • leave_Blake_alone

    OMG ALASKA!!!! Fantastic. Love Detox too, definitely best in show. Willam looks great.

  • ZnSD

    And I do love the fact that Coco is holding a “Coritos” purse given the internet meme of her as a Dorito. Glad she can laugh at her orange self.

  • VioletFem

    Detox wins hands down. I GASPED out loud when I first saw this a few days ago. The most creative and breathtaking look from ANY RPDR alum by far.
    Raja is a very close second, but still quite impressive. If I could give an award to most improved, it would be Shangela who looks so closely like Beyonce, I did a double take.
    Roxxxy: Ok this is the first time she has actually made me laugh. That is a seriously bad make-up job, and that outfit does her no favors.
    Raven: surprisingly understated, but really elegant. It’s a good look for her.
    Willam: looks amazing
    Manilla Luzon: I’ve always loved her kooky, cartoon-inspired glamour

    Man I can not WAIT for this finale to air!

    • Stubenville

      I agree that Detoxx’s look was gasp worthy. But don’t you think that Jinkx’s Día de los Muertos makeup in one of the episodes might have been at least part of the inspiration?

      • VioletFem

        I actually that did not occur to me at all. They’re two completely different looks. The only common thread between the two looks is that they use primarily black and white make-up, and they are both were very creative.

  • KSpence

    WHAT. Detox’s look is AMAZING. What a cool idea.

  • sleepycat

    so many gowns, where is the fun in just a gooey gown? (points if you know the reference)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ramon-Figueroa/1099451409 Ramon Figueroa

      I see a line of storm troopers marching through France, played by chorus boys in… very tight pants.

      • sleepycat

        Keep it gggaaaaayyy!

        • PeaceBang

          The original is sacred scripture in my family. I am thinking of Roger’s line, “How do you like my dress? I think it makes me look like Tugboat Annie.”

      • MK03

        One, two, kick, turn! Turn, turn, kick, turn!

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    Roxxxy girl, why your base look like chalk? Head to toe, Detox let her whole body rock.

    Also, Raja is a goddess (see what I did there?) and I can’t remember any more lyrics to fudge.
    Tyra’s eye makeup makes her eyes look sunken and hollow.
    Coco aged herself into an octogenarian.
    I like Sharon’s Peewee gown, but I feel like it should have been hemmed a little shorter, and it should have a belt.
    Oh Willam, never change.

    • Eric Stott

      If Coco looks 80, then that is a pretty HOT 80.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=517525210 Erika Schultze

    Raja and Detox look amazing.

    When will Shannel be starring as ‘Mame?’

    • Eric Stott

      Honey, if she could do the singing I bet she would.

  • Imasewsure

    Lord love Tammie Brown, that crazy B…

  • http://www.facebook.com/RocketStarling Ashley Ellen Wilson

    SERIOUSLY–what is up with their makeup skills??? Some of these wenches need a lesson or two (or six!)

    • PeaceBang

      I think it’s an intentional shout-out to the insane brows of the old 1940′s films. I died (in a good way).

  • Stubenville

    Love Alaska and Jinkx Monsoon.

    Ivy Winters looks adorb, dressed like Marilyn Monroe from an old movie.

    Manilla brought the cray, cray (but I love it.)

    Detoxx’s look is AMAZING. HOW did she pull that off?

    Roxxxy Andrews looks bloated.

    Willam looks like she just drove in from the like, Galleria? After like, some shopping?

  • putonabus

    I live to see Sharon, Shannel, and Manila again — they even dug out Bebe! They all have such poise and individuality in their drag, which was sorely missed this season. Honey, Jade, and Detox all live up on the carpet to what they were supposed to be on the show (I don’t necessarily love Honey or Jade’s looks, but they are more refined versions of the styles they were trying to do). Why is everyone’s drag always better at the reunion? Have they been working a lot due to the exposure from the show, combined with seeing themselves on TV and wanting to improve what they saw?

    • Stubenville

      Probably more time to plan and refine their look. The smart girls are probably seeking advice from people who have mad skills as well.

      • Eric Stott

        At the reunion I bet they can get help with the makeup and styling.

  • Lilyana_F

    Daaaamn, Detoxx knows how to bring it! Fierce! Should’ve brought it more on the show, though, so we don’t have the head-to-toe mess that is Roxxxy in the final three. Jinkxy FTW!

  • snarkykitten

    God damn. Detox is fucking AMAZING. I’m also amused by Sharon Needles’ Pee Wee Herman get up

  • Joana Jaeger

    willam reminds me of the opening act in hedwig and the angry inch

  • http://www.facebook.com/elizabeth.delyser Elizabeth Elizaveta De Lyser

    Detox is AMAZING. That is so cool. Wonder why she didn’t wear it for the judges…?

    I thought the finale show was live. Does this mean the drag queens already know the winner?

    • Stubenville

      I think the way they did it last year, they filmed ALL of the queens winning, one at a time. So nobody finds out until the broadcast next Monday (other than Ru and the video editors.)

  • donaldhitemusic

    Akashia = eww

    Alaska = tucking awesome
    Alyssa = she’s a mess, but that’s the fun part
    Chad = i’m bored
    Chi Chi = why the long face?
    Coco = less is more, baby
    Delta = looks pretty
    Detox = can she get an emmy for best make up?
    Bebe = Bronze perfection (it’s a bit much, but she works it)
    Honey = at least it’s not that blond afro wig she was so fond of
    India = this look needs a pick-me-up… Mimi?
    Ivy = adorable
    Jade = ridiculous, but i kinda like it
    Jessica = never looked better
    Jinkx = definite improvement technically, but not all that amazing
    Manila = not her best, but at least it’s creative
    Monica = I think you needs a little more highlighter on that brow
    Morgan = looks pretty good, although the dress is shaped weird
    Pandora = another mint julip, Mr. beauregard?
    Raja = not really my thing, but it’s flawless
    Raven = love the face… maybe a little less forehead next time?
    Roxxxy = that look is super fattering to her figure
    Shangela = face is great, dress is ehh
    Shannel = bitch is committed to her aesthetic… I’m buying
    Sharon = Love the concept, dress is a little off
    Tammy = crazy town (in a good way)
    Tyra = why, God, why?
    Victoria = not her best face, but the fashion is an improvement
    Willam = perfect

    • Eric Stott

      Looks as if Victoria has dropped a few pounds, and yes you’re right, her general style is better.

    • Stubenville

      I think Roxxy looks bloated.

      • donaldhitemusic

        I agree ; )

    • Zaftiguana

      “that look is super fattering to her figure”

      AAAAHHH-hahahaha!

      • donaldhitemusic

        I just realized how similar that look is the one Phi Phi wore (on the snatch game ep, I believe). I think she’d want to do everything in her power to minimize comparisons to Phi Phi at this point.

    • Sally Brownson

      What I love about Manila’s is that she wore a Sponge Bob dress and accessorized with HER PINEAPPLE PURSE. It’s just perfect.

      • donaldhitemusic

        I’ll admit, it’s grown on me the more I look at it. At first, I thought it was a little “crafty” compared to many of her silly looks (big bird, cookie monster, etc), but it’s actually quite nicely tailored (and the eyes, mouth, etc, are placed in a way that flows with her body). I can’t believe I’m saying it, but it’s a well designed, beautifully made spongebob dress! lol.

        I wonder if Ivy made it!

  • Bexxx

    Why is Tyra wearing Monica Beverly Hillz’s face?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Melissa-Janes/1307910218 Melissa Janes

      Was wondering the same thing! Maybe she’s a fan?

  • CrazyAuntie

    God bless Manila Luzon!! LUV HUH!!

  • lulukittie

    Pandora’s serving us some Kentucky Derby realness.

  • understateddiva

    Aw, it’s good to see my hometown girl Miss Porkchop, she wouldn’t remember me, but she used to be a customer at the convenience store where I used to work. I wondered why his nails were so long, and then a night employee told me she had seen her in drag!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/meredith.dickey Meredith Dickey

      Aw, Porkchop was actually the first the drag queen I ever saw! It was at a club in Raleigh, after the first season but before the second one. She was a lot of fun hosting the show and probably would have done a lot better on these later, more comedy focussed seasons.

  • Colin

    I think detox wins best makeup and overall prettiest. The completely black and white tone of literally everything, mutes the jewelry making them less attention pulling, while the overall look demands MASSIVE amounts of attention, and presents an overall aesthetically pleasing look. Perfect Drag Look if I ever saw one.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kristal.babich Kristal Babich

    I was lucky enough to go to the final taping. UGH Everyone looked so fab in person. <3

  • tonibaloney

    I can NOT stop looking at Detox. This look is absolutely stunning and amazing!

  • MK03

    Stray observations:

    *Chad is a class act as always.

    *I vote Shangela Most Improved. She really looks good.

    *Oh look, Toxxxic is wearing Michael Jackson’s nose again. What a surprise.

    *God, I love Sharon.

    *Tyra ruined her face. And I think she knows it.

    * Oh, Willam. Never change.

  • emoxic

    i think “red carpet” or “dressed to impress” was a theme. it was on the RSVPs for the taping. everyone looked amazing in person!

  • http://twitter.com/ZumaZoum Eric

    Detox’s look would have been much more amazing if I hadn’t seen Dean Pelton do the same thing on Community a couple of weeks ago.

    Manila is like a drag queen version of Katy Perry here, totally love it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Cookie.Taz Aisa Ginger Jake Psenicnik

    Raven is looking downright conservative. I’m stunned.

    monica beverly hillz stole honey’s bed bath & beyonce kaftan. morgan stole roxxxy’s breastplate and alaska’s goddess dress.

    best improved: victoria porkchop parker!

    where’s the other jade (sotomayor)? would’ve wanted to see her from the recesses of season 1 (def not akashia).

  • http://twitter.com/UtterlyCreative Sushy Gooroo

    Akashia looks like she wants to impersonate the word “booger”.

  • http://twitter.com/DarrenNesbitt Darren Nesbitt

    Delta Work and Raven look like classy conservative ladies.

  • http://twitter.com/HotMessHousWife Sammi M

    LIVING for Sharon Needles’ Pee-Wee Herman drag! And damn, what happened to Monica? She looks terrible.

    Raja and Detox are genius. I wish Detox had brought that kind of awesomeness to the competition; maybe she’ll come back and show us what’s what if there’s another All-Stars season.

    Jinkx looked so incredibly sexy, like WOW. AUGH I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL MONDAY!

      It’s so weird she didn’t bring much sexy to the show because in Monsoon Season she always brings sexy.

  • Calgary carpets

    These ladies are so pretty, some get-ups are pretty crazy though.

    :: deep breath ::

    Akashia – Has Tyra Banks weave line going on. Latrice’s dragchild?
    Alaska – Girls Gone Wild / Lolita / Gonzo porn= s’alright
    Alyssa – Tarantulas are not your friend. Cute dress but not into the hair.
    Chad – Werks it better as a blond; too much gauze.
    ChiChi – Great dress but the pale flesh strip is distracting. How do guys stay hard under her direction??
    Coco – TTH: Trying Too Hard. Needs to remove a few million accessories.
    Delta – Classy.
    Detox – This is the Detox we’ve been dying to see!! Where were you??? We were rooting for you! Learn from this.
    Bebe – Fierce hair but looks like she and Coco are shopping sisters.
    Honey – HELL NO! Even her WIG looks like a freaking caftan!!!
    India – No comment.
    Ivy – Cute! Vegas meets PanAm.
    Jade – Giuliana Rancic had a baby with a gay unicorn..
    Jessica – Cute but forgettable?
    Jinkx – Va va voom! Lookin’ fresh. Sailor bait.
    Manila – I love that she never rests on pretty. Always serving entertainment!
    Monica – Precious. Learned how to look soft.
    Morgan – Real Housewives of Ibiza. Can I get a side of mannequin with that?
    Pandora – Santino’s bane: spinster realness.
    Raja – This is why you won your season, Bitch!
    Raven – Killer. She’ll f*ck you, then eat you.
    Roxxxy – Roxxxy officially outs herself as Phi Phi’s clone. Aren’t shoulder pyramids over?
    Shangela – She looks good, but dangerously close to LARP-wear. Just strap on a broadsword.
    Shannel – Never change.
    Sharon – Fearce! This should’ve been Alaska’s outfit though. Share the spotlight, girl.
    Tammie – Fabulous. She knows who she is and works the hell out of it.
    Tyra – Looks like Monica..weird.
    Victoria – Yeah….Make-up..
    Willam – LA rich bitch chic to the T.

    Despite the criticisms, I love ALL of these bitches and the important work that they do.

    xo

      You are spot on with everything and you made me realize Phi Phi wasn’t there or she was and wasn’t worth photographing. I have a feeling Detox didn’t want to win. It was hers to lose.

  • mattcooper

    Has anyone mentioned that Raja looks like Jambi from Pee Wee’s Playhouse?

  • Melissa Snyder

    Again Raja proves that he’s a good makeup artist who should confine himself to dressing other people.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Melissa-Janes/1307910218 Melissa Janes

    Alyssa, I love you, but with those red splotches and that bow, you look like you’re wearing Hello Kitty’s period. That PeeWee dress is amazing, holy shit.

  • http://twitter.com/JMCanuck Jim

    Ok, hand ups – how many people scrolled past India Ferrah to the next photo and said in their heads, “IIVEEEEE WINTERRRRRS”? Double points if you thought “Cameroooooon!” as you passed Bebe?

  • Montavilla

    I think Alaska looks like she’s auditioning for the role of Chicklet in Psycho Beach Party.

    • NiseiShonagon

      Oh my god, some Charles Busch love is GREATLY appreciated in here! I had the privilege of being involved with productions of both Psycho Beach and Die, Mommie, Die! and had the TIME OF MY LIFE on both.

      Once Jinkx’s Broadway career takes off I’d love to see her in some of his work.

      • Montavilla

        I saw the production with Charles Busch back in the late 1980s. Wonderful show!

  • PeaceBang

    OMG, I think that actually IS Lainie Kazan.

  • NiseiShonagon

    I’m sorry but I will never be able to cede the title of Fishiest to Willam until he follows Sharon’s advice and gets some FOUNDATION THAT ACTUALLY WORKS.

    People used to criticize Ongina for being wigless and having sloppy/no tucks, but that five o’clock shadow does more to ruin a look than any of that. I can’t unsee it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/candice.booth.79 Candice Booth

      I completely agree about the five o’clock shadow on Willem. If he got rid of that there would be no question. He is hilarious though. The reveal Honey did with the Kimono was underwhelming for sure and the wig bothers me to no end. Ru can do a giant blonde wig but Honey can’t carry it.

    a little birdie told me that Roxxxy wins

    • Melizmatic

      Cool story, gurl.

    • Stubenville

      If you’re going to post a spoiler, at least be right. She lost.

  • RussellH88

    Akasha has a very Frankenstein-ish make-up line on her neck.

    And I’m surprised to see India there, considering she quit drag saying how the show was awful and she was eliminated because she didn’t do drugs and create drama.

  • Melizmatic

    I am living for Sharon’s ‘PeeWee Herman’ send up; and Manila is serving serious ‘camp’ with SpongeBob…

  • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

    Oh my. Is that a Spongebob dress?

  • babylonsista

    At least Honey’s caftan has a belt.
    I am LIVING for Tyra! Her ensemble is downright demure.
    Shangela really is a pretty girl–at least when someone else beats her face. She looks lovely.
    Roxxxy’s Beyonce impression is way off. There is entirely too much going on there.

  • http://twitter.com/amywinns Amy Winn

    Just want to go on record saying: winner = YAAAAY!

  • shanteUstay

    WTF!! Why is it every single time I see honey she’s wearing some sort of bed sheet thing.
    Yes I know Kimonos are thick and etc, but she looks like she’s weighed down by a million pounds of fabric, every single time I’ve seen her

    • http://www.facebook.com/candice.booth.79 Candice Booth

      Did you see the show? She used the kimono to reveal a form fitting dress underneath. It wasn’t earth shattering but Honey sure thought so.

  • http://twitter.com/phreddd F. Eloy Vaughn

    Some of these heffas didn’t TRY to dress.

  • http://www.facebook.com/candice.booth.79 Candice Booth

    Thanks for sharing. That was a very clever costume. It took a little while for the link to be approved.

    • http://twitter.com/HDizzay Hayley

      Thanks! I wasn’t really sure how to share it, so we just uploaded it to my bf’s forgotten blog!

  • Eric827

    It took me a while to catch these looks, but…Raven as the prettiest?

    She looks like an elderly woman in an incredibly cheap wig.
