The coolest Goths in town: Christina Corpse and Antina Christ!

Christina Corpse for Poke House and Pansys House of Presents livestream October 31 2020 by Suzanne ForbesI adore gorgeous gothic newlyweds Christina Corpse and Antina Christ.

They have the most creative style, the wildest performances, the sharpest aesthetic. Above is Christina from one of Gieza’s Poke House livestreams this past summer, when it seemed like Christina and Antina had a new mini-movie for every show. It took me forever to finish this drawing because I loved the performance so much, I wanted to live up to it! The movies these two spooky cuties made this year would be an art-house smash reel (when there are arthouses again; in Berlin, there will be).

Christina is a visual artist as well as performer and moviemaker, and does cartoons and illustrations for benefits and events in the drag community! Christina is married to Antina Christ, the Daughter of Seitan. (It never gets old, I still laugh every time I read it). They perform together as well as separately. You can see their adorable Coin-Operated Boy duet here in the archives of Christina’s shows!

Antina Christ for Pansys House of Presents livestream November 26 2020 by Suzanne ForbesAntina’s performances are all different.

This one was glitchy and mime-y. Mesmerizing! Antina is a legacy member of the House of Presents, and has performed many times; here are other drawings of her at Monster Ronsons and from the summer of livestreams.

She always looks so pretty, with the most gorgeous hair and makeup (“Priestess from another planet, but make it ooky-spooky!” she describes it) and cutest dresses.

Halloween this year was the last IRL Poke House/House of Presents show at beloved Berlin clubhouse Monster Ronsons. Maybe the last ever, if things go badly. So I am very glad that it was a knockout of a show, and was livestreamed for accessibility. Antina did a slasher revue!

Antina’s regular Insta is here, her MUA account is here, and her website is here. Christina’s insta is here, her Youtube channel is here, and her graphic work is here. I am honored to share a community and a city with these incredibly multi-talented beauties.

I am incredibly grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me work safely at home, documenting Berlin performers.

In which I am interviewed at Le Grand Mess by Liliana Velásquez and Fannie Headaek!

Liliana Velasquez and Fannie Headaek at Le Grand Mess Feb 9 2019 by Suzanne ForbesTwo of Berlin’s hardest working entertainers invited me to their talk-show-with-a-twist.

Le Grand Mess takes place at the charming little theater InnovationArt just two subway stops from us, so the hubbin and I made an evening out of it. I have enjoyed drawing both Liliana Velásquez and Fannie Headaek before.Liliana Velasquez and Fannie Headaek dancing at Le Grand Mess Feb 9 2019 by Suzanne Forbes

You can see my drawings of Liliana performing at Folsom Europe, emcee’ing the Tom Petty tribute show and at Lagari, and of Fannie at Monster Ronson’s. Liliana is the host of The Freudian Slip Club (every Sunday! no matter what!), co-producer of Big Broad Revue, and so many other things.

And is also an absolutely banging pole dancer. We had such a lovely time, and I really enjoyed talking about my work with these lovely folx, and my hubbin  cracked up at all the jokes.

I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support allows me to make art documenting queer culture in Berlin.
