*redit another drag contest* The other night I killed two birds Arabic MU and the return of Tootsie

First, I'd like to say thanks to all the lovely people who have been commenting me and what have you. I will try to get around to answering everyone over the weekend if time permits. I've been so damned busy, it's fucking ridiculous. Off the top of my head, I do recall a few people asking where I got Pink's gloves. They were from Frederick's. How do you ladies get reply to comments? Do you answer via your own comment box or go to an individual's blog and comment there? That's one area where xanga was better. The ability to reply to comments easily. Bah...

The other night, my laptop was acting up while I was in the middle of editing. I'm so getting a new macbook pro this weekend, but to keep myself from tossing this one out the window I decided to keep myself busy by doing Spankedelic's Arabic makeup contest. I did the research and realized that a lot of Arabic makeup is quite equivalent to drag makeup! Similar dramatic eyes and contouring... So of course I decided to do a whole new set with Tootsie Electra. =) (click photos to enlarge)
Here's the contest entry...

^Inspiration...If that doesn't look like drag queen makeup, may all your teeth fall out and hair grow in it's place.
I never join these contests to win, I do them for fun. I love having the drive to be creative. I also love seeing other peoples' entries. So if you want to enter Spankedelic's Arabic Makeup Contest , do it soon!

*I just entered this look in Makeup Mama's contest, since I just realized she extended the entry date. =) Not sure if it's allowed, but we'll see. I didn't enter the drag pics in the arabic eyes contest. =P

Tootsie (mutherffin) Electra... my tribute to the awesome performers at Club Illusion and AsiaSF...

^Like the mic? Seasoned b*tches know what's up. haha.
*Forgot to add my signature pose. -slaps wrist-
The outfit is just a bunch of pieces that were from Hollywood Blvd, except for the coach charm bracelet oh and the gloves and hair piece are from Bliss.

Oh yeah, I have a gallery showing tomorrow (I MEANT THE GALLERY IS TODAY, damn odd hours) in Downtown LA at The Hive with inkpenmutations press. It's going to be the first event that I'll attend and not be wasted. Should be interesting.

Well, guess I should hit the sack. xoxo

Tootsie (muthaf+ckin') Elektra

Como estan, Bitches!
I love Drag Queens. I love their style, their character, their attitude. Some of my happiest moments were actually spent partying up with queens in Hollywood. Shiet, if you don't know, you better axe somebody. So you know I had to join the Dragtastic Contest that Lady Bola Rice is throwing.
I had so many looks in my mind from super glam, to super polished, to super trashy. I have so many costumes and crazy outfits. I narrowed it down based on my queen name. The name of my first pet and the street that I grew up on. (changes security questions on all accounts)

So here she is... Ms. Tootsie Electra... (click photos to engorge) for the homies...
I wish I had a male model laying their drinking my spillage... haha or even better Ronald McDonald. Fuck, that be an awesome pic.

The outfit: Dress-LVLX only $40! haha, Gold bikini top-Ultra Vixen, Shoes- From some cheap shop at the Fox Hills Mall only $34, Costume jewelry- bliss, Tiara- real old from ebay, belt- from melrose, gloves- hot topic, wig-hollywood halloween shop, scarf ( to cover my adam's apple =P)- bliss, Gold boots I was gonna wear, but I couldn't stand in them, so they became props-Lady studio, bag- Betsey Johnson.
Cristal and McDizzle's- nutrition for true champions!

Closeup of the Makeup. Lots of contouring...lots of exaggeration...lots of fabulousity. Snaps fingers. I'm raising one brow so one eye looks bigger.
I actually took photos of the process of my transformation. They're pretty neat. I look crazy with no brows. haha. Maybe I'll post them if I have time...

I don't think I've taken this long to do my makeup. haha. It took well over an hour to get the look together, but I was so stoked with how it turned out. It's weird how the makeup transformed not only my outward appearance, but it also compelled me transform my character. I felt a little sassier just by looking in the mirror. I was like "mmm girl, no you d'int!" Yes, I guess I'm a ghetto queen. My inspiration...pretty much just what I've seen at club Illusions, my inner ghetto queen, and the songs "My Hair Looks Fierce" and "Champagne" by the fabulous Amanda Lepore.

I had so much fun, I think I'll feature Tootsie Electra in more photo sets. =)

I can't wait to see the other entries. Come on, people! Let your inner diva out and join Mimi's contest! I had a fun storyline to go with this set, but I have no time to write...I'm backed up. Well, enjoy.
