  • Mhm.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • Mm.

  • Mhm.

  • Hello.

  • My name is Charity case.

  • I'm a London based creature creator.

  • And today I'm going to be turning into a fantastical, fabulous disco.

  • Fetch the disco fish is going to entail Blue Skins, Gary horrible bag eyes and lots and lots of sparkles.

  • So my first stage of preparation is going to be time back to this main and having a little shave charity case is a mythical being.

  • She's bubbly, she's fun.

  • And she's quite scary as well.

  • Sometimes sure, I've been doing drag for close to seven years now.

  • The first couple of years were more just experimenting with makeup and costume, lots of metal wear chains, bows, ribbons, ruffles and lots of crystals.

  • Yeah, so now I'm going to mix my foundation and my gorgeous palette.

  • I grew up in the Northwest in Lancashire, in a really tiny little village, and I was literally the only gay in the village for my whole childhood, which, with quite traumatizing in a lot of ways, it's a really closed minded, close knit community where people haven't seen much expression from people like me.

  • So I didn't fit in at all around there and I never let that stop me from expressing myself, and I always saw fashion and looks as a way of showing other people how I fell inside.

  • I knew that I didn't fit in anyway, so I wanted to not fit in even more and be absolutely fabulous.

  • Mhm.

  • I'm just adding a highlight tone with my white cream blood and sticks.

  • I was really into Tim Burton, all of the characters from James and the Giant Peach and Del Toro.

  • And I'm not really into anything that's based in reality because I like to escape from the world that we live in.

  • Like I love Tarantino Poison Ivy, She ra Black Widow you know, strong women who don't take no for an answer.

  • So I just finished doing all my highlighting in the middle of my face, and I'm using a darker blue or just, like go around the sides, give it some more definition and do a little bit of contouring.

  • So when I went to college, I studied full time art and design.

  • It was a really amazing experience for me.

  • I found that I was really into my textiles and my sewing.

  • I used the opportunity to try and learn as much as I possibly could about that.

  • But halfway through the year, I transferred colleges down to London.

  • Then I got kind of sucked up into the nightlife scene, and I dropped out of college and became a became a full time seen kid.

  • I guess for a while my college was like over an hour away on the train, and I had to be there, like a every morning or something for signing.

  • And obviously, when you've got to be there at eight in the morning, you don't want to be going out partying the night before.

  • And I did want to be out partying the night before, so my priorities weren't quite in order back then.

  • I was like hosting a few nights and stuff I would go out with, just like a jockstrap and some platform shoes and a choker like that was my my general.

  • Look back then and I would think I was doing like club kid couture, which I really wasn't at all.

  • It's just being a slut.

  • Nothing being a slots bad, of course.

  • So I'm gonna go with some more blue powder and just build up this this contour on the side of my face.

  • At this point, I was making a little bit of a name for myself on the nightlife scene here.

  • But one night on a night, our party, someone spiked me and took advantage of me, which was really hard.

  • Two to deal with and to accept as an 18 year old.

  • But that had been my experience a few months down the line.

  • I was very, very sick, and I ended up being diagnosed hatred, positive from this experience, which was really quite traumatizing and and hard to accept, and to understand, I felt like I didn't really know what HIV was.

  • At this point, I felt quite uneducated about it, and drag became my escape form.

  • It became my my therapy of sorts.

  • It was my my way of expressing myself without telling people how I felt in words.

  • If I felt woke up one morning and I felt really sad, I paint tears all over my face and I'd be a really sad little doll that day.

  • Or if I was feeling angry, I'd pay myself read and turned into a demon.

  • It was just a good way of me feeling and looking, how I felt without telling people that I felt really sad or really angry.

  • But it really did grow me as a person.

  • It it taught me a lot about myself, a lot about myself worth and a lot about HIV, and I don't think HIV has talked about.

  • You know, I feel like I can use my platform to educate others who feel how I felt six years ago when I got diagnosed.

  • I'm just adding more blue eye shadow under my eyes to deepen these socket.

  • So one of the first times I got into drag I dressed as a lizard creature and looking in the mirror and not recognizing myself, not seeing any single part of me that reflected Harry.

  • It's that freedom of no one knows who I am.

  • No one knows what's underneath here, and I first of all, I committed to doing a 100 days of drug challenge.

  • But I got picked up by a few different news outlets and magazines, and eventually it just seemed like it was a wasted opportunity to stop it 100 days.

  • So I continued on to doing 365 days which it was a big commitment, and that kind of exposed me to more of an online audience and open up my opportunities to the drug industry.

  • And it also helped me in speed like I used to take three or four hours to do a full body look.

  • But now I'm practiced and I'm fast.

  • So my next stage is to paint all of this section like a deep, well black charity Case really suited my character and me as a person because I'm not really into fast fashion.

  • I'm quite advocate for the opposite of that into reusing fashion and reworking old garments into new things, which is exactly what my shop does.

  • And so charity case seemed to fit quite well for me in that in that respect, after starting my 365 days, I started getting a few requests for shows and performances.

  • So it was a big deal for me getting on stage For the first time.

  • I was like a lumpy devil creature doing a striptease to Eartha Kitt.

  • I wanna be evil, and I threw a pie at someone in the audience.

  • Um, it was very chaotic and twisted since then, My performances have gone from like lip sinking, throwing pies at people to now making a potion as a witch out of toothpaste, beer, Cheetos and drinking it.

  • So my performances have taken more of an extreme, like freak show turn over the past couple of years, which I love being able to hold a room by doing something disgusting on stage.

  • I think that's really powerful.

  • My next step is to paint my teeth black so that they fit in with the illusion.

  • When I put my lips on later on.

  • And to do this, I'm gonna use this tooth pain.

  • Uh oh.

  • There we go.

  • Got dry out here, so I'm just putting in my contact lenses.

  • It's nice to be showing a different side to drag as well.

  • I feel like most of the drag queens around the world tend to show the generic side of beauty rather than this.

  • So this is just a head sock, which I've made.

  • It's kind of a nice way to just cover up my hat.

  • Next, I'm going to start adding some crystals to my face like fantasy magical dreamworld realism.

  • I think I've always dressed quite extreme, like even in casual day clothes.

  • Dressing up makes me feel good.

  • And I'm never gonna, like, stop doing that because it feels like an opportunity missed every day to be feeling myself and having a nice time and catch my reflection in the window and like, Oh, yes, like I don't want to go that feeling away And the experience itself is quite adrenaline fueled.

  • I know that there's probably going to be pointing and laughing.

  • I do tend to scare quite a lot of Children with my looks.

  • So I've now stood quite a lot of crystals on my head and my cheeks, and I'm quite happy with how it's going.

  • I've got some thins to stick on my ears.

  • So I think I'm gonna do that next.

  • Yeah, I'm going to add on my eyelashes next, just like really big, extreme, glamorous slashes.

  • So this is my mask, which I made this morning out of some foam and some pink tights, which I so tubes in and stuffed.

  • So I'm gonna hook it around my ears to finish off my fish fantasy.

  • The Scottish face complete time to get dressed and I'll be right back.

  • Yeah, welcome back.

  • I just put a little number on for the disco tonight we have my gorgeous sparkly fins with this stunningly Adar, my beautiful queen of the ocean crowd.

  • And, you know, just a little Parker to keep me warm on a nice evening.

  • Yeah, I think the limit is your imagination.

  • If you've got a good imagination and your creative, then you should be able to make anything like fantastical or mythical.

  • I found a way to live my life as a new character every single day.

  • I like to escape from the world that we live in by being a monster from another realm.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Uh huh.

  • No.

Mhm.
