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.

Antina Christ at Pansys House of Presents November 26 2020 by Suzanne ForbesHere Antina read us a very moving piece about queerness and gender identity.

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.

Antina Christ at Pansys House of Presents October 31 2020 by Suzanne ForbesThis was Antina’s Halloween show!

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.

Live-drawing the Live Stream of Pansy’s House of Presents – whoa!

That was delirious!!

Amazing performances by beloved Berlin queers and queens as they quarantine all over town! Pansy, hostess of Pansy’s House of Presents, Berlin’s incredibly popular drag show, and Gieza Poke, hostess of pre-show The Poke House, went live on Twitch last night. Above, marvelous performer Lola Rose showed the empty street her hot pink secret self in a fabulous number recorded earlier in the day.

Below, my first-ever drawing from a livestream, a very bad drawing of Gieza Poke!

Gieza Poke by Suzanne Forbes March 24 2020Drawing from the screen is completely and entirely different from drawing from life.

I have drawn Gieza on three other occasions and never created such a mess.

Pansys House of Presents March 24 2020 by Suzanne ForbesHostess Pansy had wonderful makeup and brought adorable rescue greyhound Tina (“like Tina Turner”) on for a cameo.

I am shocked by how little this drawing looks like her. I have also drawn Pansy before, damn well.

HP Loveshaft for Pansys House of Presents March 24 2020 Suzanne ForbesHP Loveshaft did an incredible and sexy number to “Dancing With Myself” from their hallway.

I made a terrible drawing of this gorgeous drag king! Even though I have drawn them in the past.

Fifi Fantome for Pansys House of Presents March 24 2020 by Suzanne ForbesI do kind of like the drawing I made of Fifi Fantôme dancing on her rooftop!

And I like the one of Lola, as loose and messy as it is. If my Patrons enjoy these goofy drawings, I’ll keep trying every week.

Pansy is doing an incredible thing working to livestream the previously scheduled performances every Tuesday.

She is hoping to raise money to pay the performers, pay beloved queer clubhouse Monster Ronsons the rent she would have paid them, and keep performers’ spirits up.

Gieza’s loving, sassy humor and Pansy’s indomitable message of inclusion, diversity, solidarity and social justice were so revitalizing to me yesterday. The comments in the chat were hilarious too!

You can watch these wild livestreams for free on Twitch (so easy to set up an account) and also easily tip the performers or pay the regular ten euro entry fee if you can.

Gieza’s twitch is here and Pansy’s is here.

You can pre-order merch, including the super popular Drag Saves Lives shirts and totes, here.

I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me work safely at home.
