Although she’s currently quite busy creating all the digital content her fans crave and endorsing cosmetics and fragrances (really, what beauty company wouldn’t want her as the face / body of their campaign!?), “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 11 star and Haus of Edwards luminary Plastique Tiara is coming to town for the Halloween season in Night of the Living Drag, playing live on Friday, October 29 at Terminal 5.
Thotyssey: Hello, Plastique! How was your summer?
Plastique Tiara: I was great very grateful to be working, and spending time with love ones during difficult times like this.
I’m sure you’ve been traveling a lot (during times when that was possible). Do you have a favorite city or country to perform in?
I loved performing in Seoul, Korea; I fell in love with the food, the people and the nightlife.
Serious question: does being so pretty all the time ever get exhausting!? Don’t you wish you could show up to a place in, like, sweatpants and a hoodie?
Haha! I wear sweatpants every day, to do anything.
Before, I would work a lot on curating everything and making sure everything is flawless on my social media… but now I’ll try to have a little bit more fun with it. I think time spent for work is great… however, now I value time spent with friends and family more, since you never know what’s gonna happen.
What’s your favorite number to perform these days?
I used to perform “Hello Bitches” by CL a lot, and would love to get back to that!
And how do you like the Dawn of Chromatica remix album?
Everything I could hope for!
Kylie Sonique Love just won Drag Race All-Stars! She’s so fabulous and talented, but also you posed with her in the photo challenge from your season… so that must have had something to do with it, right!?
Haha, yes! That’s why she won… and I was 8th.
It’s nearly the spooky season! As a queen, does every day just feel like Halloween… or is the day still special and fun?
I think Halloween is when most drag queens are born… so it’s very exciting, since you get to see everyone express themselves to their fullest.
You are going to be part of a squad of amazing queens in a holiday tour of North America care of Voss Events called “Night of The Living Drag!” Your drag mom Alyssa Edwards will be along for the ride… is she fun to travel with?
This will be the first time we travel on a tour together, so I am super, super excited!
Tell us what we can expect from “Night of The Living Drag,” which comes to Terminal 5 in NYC on October 29th!
It’s going to be terrifying.
Finally: who is the scariest Halloween movie monster / killer?
Recently, Candyman really fucked me up.
