O' Christmas Queen
Drag Queen: A man who, generally for public entertainment, dons women's clothes and adopts an overly feminine demeanor while on stage. A drag queen's performance can range from a crass, sarcastic laugh fest to a more natural, subtle depiction of femininity. Performances are undeniably over-the-top because all good queens know, bigger is better.
Even if she’s doing shows five-times-a-night, seven-nights-a-week, there are only so many wig heads, teasing combs, crates of Aqua-Net and eyelash glue the drag queen on the go really needs.
But a girl can never get enough flowers from her devoted fans... I mean, friends. Buy your favorite queen a gift certificate from Blooming Boutique and have a fresh bouqet of flowers sent to her door monthly, weekly or every day if it fits into your budget - and you don't mind looking like a stalker.
The shoppe also offers spa baskets with an assortment of soaps, lotions and the like to help your pal wash away the stress, sequence and socially-transmitted remnants of the bar scene. Visit thebloomingboutique.com for more gift ideas.
The busiest gal on the stage craves her down time, and when those pumps come off and those hose go into the recycling bin, all she wants is quality time with other well-dressed, stylish divas.
And so what if there aren’t any around? Problem solved with the sixth season of “Sex and the City,” now out on DVD and available just about everywhere. And if the show’s already just too-yesterday’s-news for our girl, go even further back and pick her up a copy of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” “Roman Holiday” or “Sabrina.”
Every queen worth her lip liner knows that Audrey Hepburn was, is and will always be the last word in chic.
The newer DVDs are on sale everywhere, and the classic titles can be found at various online outlets, or even check out eBay for some serious bargains.
