Keep it foxy with Joslyn Fox!
We’re officially ALMOST at the one month until RuPaul’s DragCon NYC (this Wednesday!) and we can’t WAIT for everyone to have the best weekend of their lives!
In order to prepare for the convention, we’re talking to the queens who will be there to meet YOU the fans. This week we sat down to chat with Joslyn Fox herself to get her thoughts on all things DragCon!
We can’t even believe how long it takes her to get ready for best weekend EVER!
Check out the interview with Joslyn Fox BELOW!
How long does it take you to get ready for DragCon?
“Preparing for DragCon is a year long process, although most of the decision making happens closer to the event. A lot of planning goes into designing merchandise, placing orders, printing photos, plotting out the setup of the booth and making signage. Then there is of course the executing of the looks, one for each day. Every detail counts. That’s why up until that last suitcase is zipped, plans are still in the making.”
How does the West Coast differ from the East Coast in your opinion? Either with the Drag, the fans, or both?
“Drag is a worldwide phenomenon and the appeal is endless. Fans from all over the globe make their way to DragCon so there is a complex variety of drag fans in attendance. I met a lot of Aussie enthusiasts this year in LA so I look forward to seeing more of my Little Foxes from Europe in NYC this fall. DragCon presents an incredibly diverse visual of all levels of drag, but New York is where it all began. I know the looks will not disappoint and will set a new precedent for setting new trends with influence from the grass roots of drag itself.”
Who are YOU excited to meet at DragCon NYC?
“I simply cannot wait to meet new fans and reunite with all of my old friends. DragCon is like Christmas!”
What items do you HAVE to have in your purse/bag/bra to survive DragCon?
“I can’t survive DragCon without some lipgloss to touch up, a Sharpie for signing anything and everything for the fans, and a big bag of good old Lay’s Potato Chips.”
What do YOU always buy/stock up on while you’re at DragCon?
“I love supporting the vendors at DragCon and coming home with something unique and one of a kind. I love replying to “Where did you get that?” with “Oh, this? At DragCon, of course.”
What advice would you give to someone who is attending DragCon NYC for the first time?
“I always say, treat DragCon like it was your wedding. Absorb every single second of it. Make every moment count. I wish I could bottle up the energy and magic that is in the air in that convention hall. It is palpable. Nothing else in the world like it.”
