Towleroad has a fab post-win interview with Violet today, check it out below:
Towleroad: What surprised you most about watching yourself back?
Violet Chachki: I was actually surprised at how much resting bitch face I really do have. It’s bad. I really can’t hide my emotions at all. If I’m unhappy, you’re going to know.
TR: Yeah, you wouldn’t win Miss Poker Face.
VC: Oh no, no. I have a horrible poker face! It’s awful!
TR: What are you most proud of from this season?
VC: I think I’m most proud of the growth that I’ve shown, and also the Hello Kitty challenge, because I looked really good.
TR: Your Death Becomes Her look has become iconic. Did you know going in that it was one of your top looks?
VC: I was really excited about it. When I got the list, we had about two weeks to prepare. I went on Craigslist to look for oxygen tanks, and they were so heavy. But you get two bags, 50 pounds each, so I made the oxygen tank out of 1 liter Coke bottles. It’s actually soda bottles and duct tape, that’s what the oxygen tank is made out of. Fun fact. I was so excited about that. For me, it was an obvious choice. I was like, ‘Oh, death by corset,’ because sometimes it really does feel like I could die, and I act like it, too. I didn’t know how far I was going to get as far as reduction goes, but I was training in the hotel room at night. I got down pretty small, so it really did have a big impact.
TR: What do you want your Drag Race legacy to be?
VC: I want my Drag Race legacy to be that I’m a hard worker. I’m dedicated to this art form. That’s really all there is to it. I really just enjoy this art form. I want people to realize that I’m good at what I do, I love what I do and there is a lot of passion behind what I do. It’s the passion and the drive, that’s what I want to leave behind.
