Hanging out in hell with Sharon Needles from RuPauls Drag Race. Is she trying to chloroform me? Crazy bitch! And that’s the naked truth!
Just found this long lost gem while rifling through my computer. This was an alternate version of the Sharon Needles shirt I made earlier this year. Still waiting for a better hi-res picture of Alaska before I make it though
— Sharon Needles on Roncky Horror and tucking (via pikachuwill)
So this week’s theme was “Scary” Monsters and I chose to draw the gorgeous Sharon Needles who always brings a touch of horror to her drag. I am absolutely in love with her look, her style and her sense of humor! Oh and her tentacle fingers! By the way her dress is based on a Ouija board and her pumpkin is filled with syringes…you know for kids ;)
STORY TIME:I met Sharon Needles last night, in San Antonio.
Alaska Thunderfuck snuck out before the show when there wasn’t that many people and waved to everyone before going to the sound booth and got helped getting mic’d (Which looked a bit like she was getting felt up because of the dress she was wearing) while this was happening I was just like staring at her from my seat for like 10 minutes.
Come to find out, she was doing the “Opening Act” and made all of the Rocky Horror Show Virgins go up on stage, and after talking picked the 5 best dressed to play a game.. which was that she was going to sing Old McDonald and when she came to you, pick a barn yard animal say what it is and then make the sound of that animal’s orgasm. After that she picked the best 2 (Horse/Cock) and made them “orgasm-for-their-life”. (The Horse won.) Then kissed him on the cheek told him he won nothing and to get off the stage.
The show was amazing, and Sharon was really amazing!! During the show there were like 10 Rupaul’s Drag Race innuendos, that I had to explain to my mom later ;).
After the show we had to wait around to meet Sharon, and while we were doing so Alaska (out of drag) kept walking back and forth carrying things..mainly liquor… and I kept wanting to meet him but he was either to fast, or I was to nervous, so all I kept doing was hitting my mom and saying “It’s Alaska” or “There’s Alaska”. So once Sharon came out, she announced ”Sorry I took so long those three Coronas and that bag of cocaine weren’t gonna snort themselves ha-ha-ha” walked right by my mom and gave her a kiss on the cheek asked “How are you, Darling?”, then walked to the front (we were way in the back) to start meeting people. I also saw Stacey Layne Matthews, but she was busy and I didn’t want to bother her.
Once we got close, Alaska was standing about 10 ft, away from me drinking a beer, but I didn’t want to get out of line, to get a picture. The women ahead of us, was really quiet and didn’t come with anyone which I guess Sharon realized and handed her one of her beers (she had like 5 on the table) and said “Here! Have a swig loosen up a little!!” she hesitantly drank some, and Sharon cheered “See! There you go! Drink some more!”…them the lady put it down and awkwardly walked away.
So, my mom met Sharon first, and got her autograph. My mom told her “Oh, I love your cameo!”, in which Sharon replied, “That wasn’t a cameo darling, that was a full-fledged star performance!!”, “No, I meant your necklace!”, “..Oh haha, well Thank You!” looking like she understood what my mom meant now.
By this time she turned her attention to me and said “Why hello!” I nervously/unsure-ly said “Hi!..Can I ask you a favor?” and very calmly said “Oh, anything” “Can I get a picture with both you and Alaska?” In which he replied very politely ”Oh, of-course” and then paused, turned, paused again, and screamed “ALASKA!!!” “YOU’VE GOT ONE FAN!!!” then Alaska strutted/pranced over and said hi to my mom and I. We got a few pictures, Alaska started to stand by me but Sharon pushed him out of the way saying “I’m the star, i’m the celebrity, I’M in the middle!” and after Alaska hugged me and said something like “Oh, someone recognized me, nice to see you!” it was kinda loud i’m not too sure.
Sharon asked how old I was. I said “I’m 15.” she kinda looked stunned put her arm around me leaned in and said “Oh dear, starting out young.” Then turned to my mom “It’s a little raunchy, are you her mom?” “yes, I am. We go to a lot of stuff, at least she’s with me” and she sincerely replied “YOU are doing such a great job raising her! When I was younger, I didn’t get to see the ART!! All the different art forms! I had to do it secretly, hush-hush, and I turned out like this. So it is just SO good that you show her things, and are open, you know.”
By this point the guy taking pictures was nonchalantly telling us we need to leave because of people waiting un-patiently behind us, but Sharon rolled her eyes and waved him off and asked “Are you a fan of the show” “Yes! I’ve watched every episode,..more than once” “Oh, I know! It’s like Pringles, you just can’t get enough can you!!” Then the guy tried to get us to go again, and Sharon grabbed my hand and kept talking “Okay honey, so Always follow your nightmares!!” and a few other words of wisdom, while people behind me were semi-glaring at me, I giggled and nodded, saying bye…and waved to Alaska.
All in all, it was the very best night of MY life, and has been the only time I’ve fan-girl’ed over someone after meeting them.
