Heels of Glory Meet the characters

One intrepid reporter was brave enough go behind the scenes and scoop these exclusive interviews. The transcripts made it out to see the light of day (but we have lost contact with the reporter...)

Five minutes with ALLURA SUPREME...

Allura

What's the best thing about being the Supreme Mistress of Make-Up?

Nature can be very unkind to people: I see it as a privilege to provide this much-needed cosmetic care to thousands of poor unfortunate souls with less than flawless skin. I like to think of myself as the fourth emergency service really. I'm a humble creature at heart.

Why did you choose Splendorella to be the face of Supreme Cosmetics?

Splendorella is like an Everywoman: on one level she is a great star in the drag community. On the other, she is just an ordinary girl who found the right make-up at the right time and trusted in its transformative power for life.

You've devoted your life to serving the drag dermis. Why do you love drag queens so much?

...sorry I was just on the other line...ah yes, drag queens...well they try so hard don't they? You've got to admire that. They are so determined and unstoppable...and trusting. They are like innocent fairytale characters who believe in magic...and make-up...but mostly make-up.

What would you be if you weren't a cosmetics magnate and a drag club owner?

Oh I should probably be involved in community outreach projects or charity fundraising. Like Mother Theresa. Only with better outfits and an on-site manicurist. There's no excuse for looking shabby just because you're in a hot country.

An audience with SPLENDORELLA

SplendorellaWhat's the best thing about being the undisputed queen of La Douche?

The applause! No the fans of course — my Douchebags. Inspiring people to love themselves and be faaaaaaaaaaaaabulous is everything!

What's the secret behind your flawless skin?

A strict skincare regime — always Supreme Cosmetics — the only way to bring out your inner fierce.

Is it sometimes lonely at the top?

How can being loved and adored ever be lonely!?

Do you have any advice for the baby drag queens following in your footsteps?

Too much is never too much! And werk!

A taste of HONEY

HoneyWhat do you want to be when you grow up?

Who says I'm not grown up?! Rude! Do you mean, what do I want to be when I'm really old? Basically, I just want to preserve my beautiful baby drag dermis with all of the Supreme cosmetics range so that I will NEVER get old. And then I can be forever young!

Who is your drag icon and why?

How could there be more than one answer to this? Obviously, the one queen who rules over all, with a flick of her immaculate huge hair and a beautiful raised painted eyebrow - SPLENDORELLA! I love you, Splendie! Mwah. Douchebag 4 life.


The world can be a dangerous place for a baby drag queen. What'syour survival strategy?

1) Never take your heels off.
2) NEVER take your heels off.
3) If someone asks you to take your heels off, be extremely suspicious.
4) Shoot for the moon and you'll end up among the stars.
5) Keep your heels on at all times.

JAY walking

JayWhat do you want to be when you grow up?

My absolute hero is James Bond so when I grow up I want to be a hybrid of all the James Bonds. By the time I'm 30 it should be possible to inject components of personality traits in to your genes. So I'll select the suave sophistication of Roger Moore, Sean Connery's accent and the decisiveness of all the Bonds but without the misogyny.

What do you look for in a good gadget?

Practicality. Also if they're multi purpose & impossible (for Honey) to break that's a bonus. Oh and I also look for gadgets with a 2-year guarantee. There's no point in getting a secret magnetic pen if it breaks before you can open zips with it from a distance.
