VIVIAN


Well, what can be said of Vivian Vanderpuss?

 For starters that name is absolutely fabulous. I've known of her for some time and fell in love with her online in her virtual shows during the height of the pandemic, although I had the pleasure to meet her once a few years back by accident at a show in New York. Drag artist Vivian Vanderpuss is Victoria's quirky cat mother and solution to the rat problem. The avant-garde performer has served elaborate looks that are truly out of this world. Drag to Vivian is living the fantasy. Sometimes she may be the most beautiful woman and other times she may look like a swamp monster. Originally from Kingsville Ontario, Vivian moved to Victoria on a whim and then started her transition into drag performing, where she has been a huge hit. Vivian's wildly diverse work is what I live for. They represent the many aspects of her embodied art, through glamour, humor, ugliness and high retro camp. The queen says that her drag style is a rolodex of characters ranging from saucy snowbird to celestial being. But her drag is unique in that many of her looks and characters are all based on people she's met. But drag really started for Vivian because of her love for vintage clothing, and then her love for vintage woman's clothing, and I can live for that. Woman's vintage clothing is the bomb.  So, it's no surprise she landed herself a spot on Drag Race Canada. I'm wishing her all my best for the win. So far, were halfway there. Vivian also has a very healthy adoration of cats did I mention?



And one of many reasons I love the twisted mind of Vivian Vanderpuss...

  3. Now you know I love her. What style! She gives me a Phyllis Diller vibe in a few of them. I never liked the color orange either, but she sure makes it look good in just a few of the photos. I may change my mind on the color. I want more of her.

  5. She is a standout for sure on this season. But she won't win. She is way too much camp, qurikiness and awesomeness for Brooke Lynn's mind not cookie cookie drag.

    1. I haven't minded Brooklyn on this season. But it took three seasons for her to loosen up.
