Tempest DuJour is here to help YOU!
As the world counts down the days until RuPaul’s DragCon NYC finally arrives, the sound of sewing machines, hairbrushes detangling hair, and freshly lipsticked lips smacking away gets stronger and stronger.
Y’all better be getting ready for the best. weekend. of. your. life! That being said, it seems like none other than Tempest DuJour is here to help you.
We spoke with the RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7 queen about everything DragCon and boy, did she deliver some incredible quips, great advice, and, as always, LOL-worthy lines.
While we all countdown the days until DragCon NYC happens, you know at the Javits Center on September 9 & 10, take a look at the advice Tempest DuJour gave us on how to survive the convention and SO MUCH MORE!
How long does it take you to get ready for DragCon?
“Longer than Michelle Visage’s nails, but shorter than her tits without a bra.”
How does the West Coast differ from the East Coast in your opinion? Either with the Drag, the fans, or both?
“The west coast is glossy and plastic, the east coast is pasty and pretentious.”
Who are YOU excited to meet at DragCon NYC?
“The FANS!!! Without them we’re just dudes in dresses with broken dreams!”
What items do you HAVE to have in your purse/bag/bra to survive DragCon?
“A Red Bull I.V. drip, extra Poise pads, and a wooden spoon.”
What do YOU always buy/stock up on while you’re at DragCon?
“Kisses from the other queens, jewelry, makeup, and best of all, the love!”
What advice would you give to someone who is attending DragCon NYC for the first time?
“Expect a Fantasyland of love, happiness, and sparkly things!”
