After making a New Year’s resolution to create 100 sickening looks in 100 days, one drag newbie is keeping his promise in the scariest way possible.
Day 61 #100daysofdrag Beware the four finger frantic. You must stay at least 30 ft away if you encounter such a creature, for with the excitement of human interaction she is known to projectile vomit, covering the overly friendly unfortunate in acidic green puke. Used: @mehronuk white liquid makeup, black grease paint, liquid latex, white cream blend stick. @givefacecos highlighter and lip tar, @urbandecaycosmetics eye shadows. #fourfingerfrantic #sfxmakeup #100daysofmakeup #mehronmakeup #dragqueen #clubkid #nyxcosmetics #londonqueen #5fingerssfx
Inspired by RuPaul’s Drag Race All Star Phi Phi O’Hara’s 365 days of drag challenge, London-based artist Harry Whitfield undertook his own experiment with his drag persona, Charity Kase.
Each day, Whitfield develops a new character for Charity, most of which embody the 20-year-old’s penchant for the dark and terrifying.
Day 55 #100daysofdrag She dug her nails deep into her porcelain chest and violently tore open the flesh. Reaching deep inside her body she dragged out a demonic infant. Her body torn asunder but her soul as one. Who could have predicted the outcome of an exorcism? Used: @kryolanuk tv paint stick, @mehronuk clown white, red grease paint, liquid latex and stage blood, @givefacecos loose pigment in Harlot, liquid lip base and highlighter In Lacey, @urbandecaycosmetics eyeshadow pallet, @katvondbeauty tattoo liner, @nyxcosmeticsuk_cheek contour duo pallete and milk jumbo eye pencil, @stargazerproducts pressed white powder and glitters. Thanks to @tuttiifruittiilondon for my hair! #demonbaby #100daysofmakeup #dragqueen #londondrag #clubkid
“I wanted to be amazing at makeup and I really enjoy creating characters, costumes and concepts so I thought what better way to push my abilities,’ he told Gay Star News.
“I don’t feel like we do very similar things with our work,” Whitfield said of his and O’Hara’s projects. “I remember thinking that most days she wore a cosplay costume and the same makeup as the day before, whereas I’m trying to create a whole new character every day. No shade though: I was really impressed with her challenge.”
Day no 51 #100daysofdrag Innocent and sweet yet she plays alone, none of the other little girls want to be her friend. Her fuchsia hair bows and matching silk dress simply fail to distract from the transfixing torn craters in her face. Used: @mehronuk white cream blend stick, clown white, black grease paint and liquid latex, @grimas_bh lip pencil, @lagirlcosmetics matte lipstick, @urbandecaycosmetics eyeshadow pallet, @givefacecos highlighter loose powder in Lacey and @stargazerproducts pressed white powder #dragqueen #clubkid #100daysofmakeup #nyxcosmetics #mehronmakeup
Day no 44 #100daysofdrag Sick of social standards she took a sharpened scalpel to her plump cheek and dug the blade deep into her flesh. With it, she swiftly drew a circle around her features and tore her face clean off her head. Based on @puppyteeth 's amazing artwork ❤️ Used @discodustlondon and @givefacecos #puppyteeth #100daysofmakeup #sfxmakeup
“It’s difficult to describe as it changes on a daily basis,” Whitfield said of his aesthetic. “Think Roger the alien meets Anna Nicole Smith. I love blood and gore, I’m often inspired by horror or sci-fi movies.”
“I think its really interesting to see the contrast between the sweet and pretty girls I create, and their twisted macabre sisters.”
Day no 21 #100daysofdrag Her skin peeled grotesquely off of her protruding bone structure, rotting more and more every day. Without her eyeballs her face looked eerie and morbid. Once fair, her complexion was now an off violet colour and the stench was almost unbearable. The stubborn fisherman however refused to part with his prize catch. #thelittlemermaid #ariel #100daysofmakeup #dragqueen #artqueen #sfxmakeup #5fingerssfx
Day no 12 #100daysofdrag A worn out man in a silver Ford Focus pulled up to the glossy drive through window and placed his order. With an awkward giggle and a charming hair toss she purred "Sorry sir, all I'm serving is fillet of fish." #Mcdonalds #artqueen #100daysofmakeup #dragqueen #clubkid #londonqueen #dragmakeup
With just over a month left on this challenge, Whitfield’s not sure what Charity Kase’s next adventure will be, but is hoping she’ll “lose her appetite for expensive shoes.”
