Have you ever played Tekken Tag Tournament and thought, “I sure wish this was more fabulous?”  Well, artist Clara Cullen has created an interactive video which allows you to pit famous ballroom voguers against each other a la Street Fighter.

ballroom battle drag ball “Ballroom Battle” allows you to watch pre-rendered vogue battles set to Kevin Jz Prodigy’s beats, with dancers from the esteemed houses of McQueen, Balenciaga, Mugler, and more dead-dropping the house down.

You can who wins each dance off and proceeds to the next round. It’s just like Mortal Kombat, complete with victory poses and 8-bit sound effects.

Says Cullen:

“The [drag ball] scene is so alive and the culture is amazing, with all the different houses dancing off … I wanted to take each dancer and make them into a very defined character, so people could choose their favorite and stick with them.”

While all the battles are fierce, none of the dancers finish their bouts with a FATALITY, which may or may not be a good thing.
