Although another Anime Expo has come and gone this past weekend Kim Chi from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 has done a couple fabulous interviews showcasing her cosplay and high fashion anime skills leading up to the HUGE anime event that wrapped over the holiday weekend.
In the first video, Kim Chi showcases her Sailor Moon inspired “water look” complete with a light blue Sailor Mercury inspired wig while explaining that Sailor Moon was one of the first animes she watched as a youth.

Of course, Sailor Moon isn’t the only anime which Kim Chi is familiar with. The Korean-American drag queen was first introduced to anime during her early childhood in South Korea.
The very first anime I watched was Dragon Ball Z and after that, it was Sailor Moon,” Kim Chi explains. “I’ve never done a mecha look, but when I was young, I used to buy these figurines. I definitely know a thing about how the structure of Gundams work, so I should do a Gundam look one day.
Kim Chi also donned a Death Note inspired look based on “a cuter version” of death god, Shinigami.
