Queen of the Week - Cookie Dough

I'm so happy to be featuring Cookie Dough as I relaunch the Queen of the Week segment on my blog! Cookie booked me for one of my very first shows ever in San Francisco. She is always crazy and fun and I've always enjoyed doing shows with her!

Name: Cookie Dough

Age: Older then the internet, Younger then the television

Location: San Francisco

Single or taken? Extremely Happily Married to DJ MC2

What is your drag style like? I am an the comedic side of song choices to perform. I tried to stay with current topics and fads. Some would say I'm tragic.

How long does it take you to get ready in drag? With a time limit, about an hour. Without a time limit, painting nails just before the stage.

Do you have a favorite number you perform? There is this hilarious version of the music of Stairway To Heaven with lyrics of Gilligan's Island Theme.

Where can we see you perform? At The Monster Show with Cookie Dough & DJ MC2. www. cookievision. com (Next show is Feb. 7th @ The Mix).

How did you first get into drag? I grew up in San Francisco, so of course Halloween,
House parties, and street fairs.

Who have been your biggest inspirations? Me, Myself, & I

What would be your three biggest tips for a new drag queen? Pee before getting all your drag on, if you talk crap behind a queens back, make sure you can say it to their face, don't forget your music.

If you could perform anywhere in the world where would it be and why? As a personal dream, it would be to sing in a rock band, in drag or out, but I do prefer performing in some sort of costume.

What is something that might surprise us all about you? I have been clean and sober for over 8 years.

What makeup items could you not live without? M.A.C. products, I use a lot of different things, some drugstore products that are good, but always go back to M.A.C.

Do you design any of your clothes, create any of your wigs, etc? I try to work my own wigs, but they are usually disastrous, I have an idea of what style I like and relate that to my costume designer.

What has been your all time greatest moment in drag? Performing at some of the street fairs and festivals in San Francisco.

What else should we know about you? My website is www. cookievision. com and I am always up for having new performers at my show, get in touch.
