I usually like having a TV show playing while I draw. It needs to be something pretty mindless. I can't be paying more attention on the show than my drawing.
The show of choice today was RuPaul's Drag Race. I started all the way back in season one. I had never heard of RuPaul before this but this show is outrageously amazing. Everything is over the top (how drag should be). The competition is fierce, the challenges are hilarious, and the divas are fabulous.
As someone who doesn't wear makeup, I can't really relate to the transformation but I can definitely appreciate it. These queens spend hours putting on their face and sometimes even making their own outfits. You have to be so creative, bold, and confident to get far in this competition.
Of course, it wouldn't be reality TV without the drama. There's always the one or two girls who shake things up. They always get far in the competition and you wonder if it's because it's show biz. I won't deny, they do make the show more interesting.
I'm glad there are 10 more seasons of this show. I'm enjoying it being the backdrop of my drawing sessions. So much fun!
