Anonymous asked: I understand how you're saying that you are too harsh on faux queens, but there's another side that. Their faces are born with the feature queens paint their mug to appear to have. Any faux I know works 3 times as hard at drag, because they're A natural woman & are judged much much harsher. I mean look at Miss Holy Mcgrail, she works her ass off to the amazing talent we see.

Anonymous asked: Is there a way you could make more constricting rules for Faux Queens? Like, to solve the outfit thing, encourage them to find clothing that's less pedestrian, instead of wearing items out of their everyday wardrobe.
I feel like at that point, we’re being unfair to them. We just think it’s easier to follow the example of RuPaul’s Drag Race and allow drag queens only.
Anonymous asked: Audition deadline ?
Today at 6pm pacific time. You have 6 1/2 hours as of now henny.
Anonymous asked: so because a few faux queens fucked up last cycle that means no other ones get a chance on cycle 2? are you fucking joking? thank you for being yet another place closing their mind to faux queens. Now none of us get a fair chance.
Faux queens didn’t fuck up the first cycle, in fact, a faux queen made the top 3. The reason there won’t be faux queens on cycle 2 is simply because it’s hard to judge a biological woman against bunch of drag queens. Not to mention, it’s not fair to the other contestants who are constantly being read for their lopsided breasts, manly jawlines, lack of padding, or minimal wardrobes. A girl can walk into any store, find a dress that fits her, and pay for it without so much as a weird look. For the boys, it’s not that easy. The fact of the matter is, faux queens are not the same as drag queens, and we need to be fair to our competitors.
Auditions for Cycle 2 close in 24 Hours!
The auditions we got so far are amazing! Thank you all for taking the time to audition for us. For anyone who has been waiting to audition, or just hasn’t had the time to, the auditions will close in about 24 hours. So if you haven’t made an audition, but have been meaning to, I would get to steppin’! Also, the cast members will be announced on Thursday once we decide on who all should be competing. Thank you queens!
tardisaurusrex asked: Do you think you'll have faux queens again in future cycles?
Probably not, but maybe. One of the queens, Bianca, suggested that we could do it like how RuPaul’s Drag Race does with the Puerto Rican queens, having about one each Season. We’ll just have to see. If there is enough demand for it, we might change our mind.
Tumblr’s Drag Race Cycle 2 Casting Call!
Hello aspiring Tumblr’s Drag Race Queens! This is the official casting call for Cycle 2. This post will be explaining what you need to do in your audition tape. Before we start though, I would like to state the limitations on Tumblr’s Drag Race.
First of all, you have to either be a Drag Queen or a Trans Queen. This cycle, there will be no Faux Queens competing. Another limitation is that you have to be an amateur drag queen. Having professionals would be nice, but it wouldn’t be fair to the other competitors. Not only that, but this competition is for improving amateur queens, not for who’s the best of the professionals. Lastly, you do not have to be an American to be in this competition, but make sure you know the difference between your time zone and Pacific Time. This competition’s due dates will all be based off of Pacific Time.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about your auditions. For the audition, you are going to have to make a video similar to the Cycle 1 Meet The Queens videos. We would prefer you don’t upload it to YouTube, but make it into a submission just for us. In the video, you have to address the following:
- State both your regular name and your drag name
- State your current URL (If you ever change your URL, let us know)
- State your Age
- Tell us where you live (If USA, just say which state you live in. If you are outside of the USA, you can just say your country.)
- Three INTERESTING Facts about you
- Tell us about something that would show your dedication to this competition (We’re requiring this since we had so many drop outs last cycle)
- What it would mean for you to win Tumblr’s Drag Race
- A catchy tagline
For an example of what this should look like, I made a fake audition tape so you can get an idea of what you should do. The video can be found here (x).
Along with your submission, you will also need to submit photos that would later on become your profile photos if you were to make it onto Tumblr’s Drag Race. You will need one sickening face picture and a full body picture that would make us want to EAT IT. Make sure they’re hot because there will be no changing your cast photos.
That’s it! Your audition tape and your cast photos will be due to the new blog, TDRCycle2, on Wednesday, May 29th at 6pm Pacific Time. Lastly, do not upload your audition video onto your blog. We want it to be a surprise to the Tumblr’s Drag Race fans and don’t want it to be leaked early. It’s fine if you already have pictures on your blog that you plan using for your cast photos, but don’t announce to everyone that’s your intentions for the pictures.
We’re looking forward to seeing a variety of queens! Good Luck potential Tumblr’s Drag Race queens, and don’t fuck it up!
Anonymous asked: have you chosen another cycle 3 judge, would you accept an application?
We haven’t thought of Cycle 3 Judges yet, but it will probably be the winner of Cycle 2….
Anonymous asked: So do we unfollow this one and follow the new one?
No stay followed ;) But yas follow the new one too.
Hi y’all, bye y’all
It’s me, Nacho! That one judge on TDR. I’ve enjoyed my time here, but alas I bid you all farewell. I won’t be joining Fawn, Nicole, and the new judge (Ooh, who could that be) for the next cycle of TDR. Someone who can devote more time into TDR should take on my position, since school consumes quite a bit of time out of me. I want what’s best for TDR, and I’m confident in Nicole and Fawn’s abilities to carry on. I’ve loved critiquing all the queens that competed this cycle, you’re all amazing and talented (even if you dropped out hahaha). Thank you to the fans that kept up with this, and sent us lovely messages. Thank you fuck asses that sent us hate mail, it showed that this is worth something (it got people riled up, so hey, that’s something). I hope you’ve enjoyed me as much as I’ve enjoyed y’all. I’ll still be on Tumblr keeping up with the future cycles. To future competitors: Good luck!
And now, it’s time for me to sashay away.
