Cape Town - Bernard Buys aka Betty Bangles spills some details on how to find your inner drag – which also ties in with Friday’s episode of Betty Bangles en die dossers on VIA (DStv 147).
See a sneak peek here:
What makes the ideal drag queen?
That is a difficult question, because there are many different types of drag queens. The important thing is to decide which character portrays who you want to be best. For example, ask yourself: are you a club queen or do you want to be on stage? If you want to be on stage, you might have to be funnier and if you want to compete in pageants, you’ll have to be more stylish. Know your body and dress accordingly. The second episode of Betty Bangles en die dossers will give more detailed answers to this question.
How do you choose a name and character for a drag queen?
This question ties in with the first one. As soon as you decide in which direction you want to go or are comfortable going in, you decide on a name. Normally names will either be something funny like Betty Bangles or Jackie Lation (who is also known as Jacolani in the show) or Naomi Peron and Foxy Lopez Brown who are both glamour queens.
New episodes of Betty Bangles en die dossers air Friday nights at 21:00 on VIA (DStv 147).
