Drag Summit Workshop with Princess of Chinatown (唐人公主）
2022/10/1 - 2022/10/2
10/1 3pm-5pm Culture and theory focus, Accent Sisters Space in Jersey City
10/2 1pm-4pm Make up workshop, Accent Sisters Space in Jersey City
In this two workshop, I will be sharing my experience of participating in the New York ballroom scene as an Asian queer Drag artist who has won multiple grand prizes. My drag is about creating personas and looks with an idea to amplify traditional aesthetics from my home culture.
I will get into details of the two signature looks I wore at Detroit Awards Ball and New York Latex Ball and share my creative process and thinking. With years of experience of painting my face, I will provide the participants references and techniques to help them develop and refine their own drag face. Participants will be creating their own makeup look in a hands-on session where I would do one-on-one consultation and guide them in each step. Participants will be empowered with freedom of creativity and have fun during the magic process of transformation. This class has no limitation or prerequisite on skills, all levels welcome. Let your artistry flow!
