MOST AVANT GARDE THING YOU'LL SEE


Sasha Velour is an up-and-coming fireball of talent, and campy fashion shaker, that resides in New York City. Graphic designer, cartoonist, illustrator, and most importantly drag artiste.

Sasha is the first drag performer, I've seen, that uses visual art in her numbers as a way of storytelling. She wanted more tools to share that narrative with the audience, so she started to use projected images…and from there she just went bonkers. Take a look at the phenomenal performance of her's titled Cellphone. It's the most avant garde thing you see all day. I have never seen anything like it. I was literally speechless. Sasha can also be seen this Friday when the ninth season of RuPaul's Drag Race starts. This is promising to be a group of the most talented season yet.

GRANDE DAME

When RuPaul’s Drag Race returns for its ninth season on March 24, viewers across the country will meet Alexis Michelle: a New York drag queen with Broadway dreams, a strong belt, and a natural ability to put on a show.
Michelle’s drag frequently incorporates musical theatre. While competing in New York’s So You Think You Can Drag competition in 2014 (which she won), her performances included “Defying Gravity”—flying included—and a live rendition of the Witch’s rap from Into the Woods that led into a dramatic costume change and The Apple Tree’s “Gorgeous.” Michelle (out of drag, Alex Michaels) studied at University of Michigan’s famed musical theatre program. Alexis Michelle is one of those queens that has what “drag” is down pat; the over the top hair and a personality to match, Alexis is making her mark on the New York Drag scene in a way that is very rare in this extremely competitive town, which is where the theatre background comes into play. Now in her 14th year performing in drag she is funny, philosophical and extremely well spoken. I think she will be one to watch, and upon further watching her perform, she should do well on Drag Race. She has one of the best personalities, and in the video clip, I have NEVER seen a transformation done on stage this well ever!
Until then, catch Alexis Michelle on RuPaul’s Drag Race beginning March 24 on VH1. Since filming has wrapped ,she is a set to return to Feinstein's/54 Below with four performances, beginning March 28.  And her brand new residency at the beautiful Therapy, one of my favorite New York haunts for her newest show Head Game.

THE MISTRESS IS SUGAR AND SPICE


One thing about the Mistress.....I am terrible about checking my emails. I had two emails, one from a newer reader, Mateo, asking why I never post on various personal things, besides my coming and goings. He had wondered certain things, but I never seemed to post on them. or talk about them. And Tim wondered if I would ever do another "fashion spread" again of my own personal combinations to wear. Well, I had to rectify that soon I thought. I have posted on personal things before in specific posts, though it is far and few between. So I emailed him back, and told him I'm an open book. Send me some questions and I'll do a post. As far as Tim goes, I promised  I would have some snaps taken over some time, and do a post. So I will combine the two and please both boys. As we're aware, I'm all about pleasing ...... I hope you forgive me and hope this will put your mind at rest....

What is the Mistress made of?

Why sugar and spice and everything nice of course!!!!! If you are talking personality wise, I am very laid back, a very relaxed person. I can be very anal retentive.  As a extrovert, I get along with just about everyone, and can strike up a conversation with anyone. But I can have a very hard temper too. When it blows, pray your not in the vicinity. As social as I am, I also like my own time and like to cocoon by myself at times. I like my arts, gin, men, music, travel, beach time, and I say let the good times roll. I always liked to think, if you'd take Mame Dennis, Joan Crawford, and Karen Walker, and put them in a blend, with a pinch of Cruella DeVille and Mae West, I'd be what you get!

What's your families ethnic heritage?
Well, on my mother side, her parents were born in Czechoslovakia, and moved here at very young ages. On my father's side, his father's side hailed from Holland, and his mother's side was from Ireland. So that makes me Czech, Dutch and Irish.
I could live in jeans..can't go wrong ...they pair with everything.

How do the men in your life deal with you dating another?
I can see from my mentioning of the men in my life it may seem confusing. At one time I was dating four guys!!!! Who has the damn time. I am now down to two......the Lad, my young spry one, and Daddy Warbucks, the older gent. Unfortunately, both live a couple hours away. Which I don't mind, as it gives me my own time, which I love, as I am extremely independent. Both know of the other and I was up front from the beginning, as I am with everyone I meet. After being and coming out of a 11 year relationship a couple years back, I don't find I'm ready to settle back down just yet. Part of it is pure selfishness, as I don't want anyone telling me what and wear to be. I'm still feeling my oats once again. And while I would never turn back and erase the 11 years with the ex boy toy, we still get along very well and talk, but I firmly believe I function better being single and independent. And I see it as comparative shopping and lots of it when it comes to men!!!!!

Will you settle down again?
Well, I do have it whittled down to the same two now, so we are making progress.......I do love my mens!!!!

What's your astrological sign?
Scorpio!!!!! And what they say about us is ALL TRUE!
loves my cashmere sweaters

around the house look

You mention your mother. Were you close with your father, and do you have siblings?
My mother and I are mother and son, and best friends. My father was a very authoritative figure. Always a crank and grouchy. He and my mother had a huge age difference, which probably didn't help. Very Archie Bunker he was. And he hated gays. Little did he know he had a gay son...who also did drag!!!!! While it never came up, I think in the end he knew. I mean, I came out of the womb, sliding out on glitter instead of after birth!!!!! I was out in middle and high school to everyone. We were as close as could be, but still had some good blow outs. Nothing was ever good enough for him. But when he died, he was happy I was there, and even said I was the only one of his children to visit him and bother with him often. My father was married before and had two children, my half sister and brother, both much older than I. I do still see and talk them. But we all have very different lives.

What event would you rather die than live through?
Currently, I have to say the Trump Administration. I die a slow death everyday.

Which fictional character do you believe is the most like yourself?
Mame Dennis. Joan Crawford. Mae West. Poison Ivy. Cruella DeVille. Patsy Stone. Tallulah Bankhead

a date night look

 What is the craziest thing that you’ve done with someone.
I would have to say for that....would be the night the Lad and I had sex all night on a golf course. We actually fell asleep. Thank goodness we woke up.

Would you ever go back into drag again?
As much fun as I had, probably not. I think 15 years was enough. It was time to let others in the spot light. The scene then wasn't as saturated as it is now though. And with my body frame now being more muscular, and my work,  there just wouldn't be the time. Your really have to give 100% of your time to do it right.  I did enjoy the outlet for the creativity and the clothes though. Because as Noxzema Jackson always said. " A drag queen is a gay man with WAY TOO MUCH fashion sense for one sex" She was right. To this day if I see feathers and marabou....I quiver.

a afternoon out...love cords!
And my Atwoods

What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
I can still remember it. I accidently got locked out of my apartment one morning totally nude. If you can't reach the newspaper with your foot. Forget it. My neighbor luckily had my spare key. He found the whole thing funny, and got a good view.

What’s your biggest turn on?
When a guy gently rubs my thighs and inner thighs with his fingers. Can you say BOING!!!!!!!

What’s a body part that you wouldn’t mind losing?
I love every part. But I could give up a toe nail I guess.

At the beach would you rather play in the sand, or play in the water?
Well, play in the water of course. That's where you meet the boys and you can give them a wet square cut view when you emerge from the ocean doing your best "10" like Bo Derek impression.

Would you consider yourself to be shy
Not really, but I can be. Sometimes it will take me a while to warm up. Depends on my mood.
a work look

Do you consider yourself more sexy or brainy?
While I can carry a conversation on many subjects, I have to go with sexy. My friends all tell me I'm the good time guy. But I really think this is a split.

What is the hardest thing you have ever done in your entire life
End a long term friendship. Or that airline pilot who was hung like a horse...it's a toss up really.

Around the house.....all about comfort.

What clothes do you sleep in, or do you sleep naked
NAKED!!! I view each day like a birth and death. I came in wearing nothing, so I wake naked. And I end the day naked. I can't stand being confined by bed clothes when sleeping. Let it all hang I say.

How would you describe yourself in three words?
I see, your turning my own tables on me! I would say, humorous, artistic, warm.

There now.......I'm bushed!!!!

MY NEW HAIRSTYLE


But for some reason, it's wasn't a hit with the ladies down at the country club last night.
