Miss Lola Rose, Muse!

Pink Butterfly headpiece and drawing of Lola Rose by Suzanne ForbesI am so inspired by Berlin drag performer Miss Lola Rose.

Here are two summer works inspired by her style and beauty. I spent much of this spring making this headpiece for Miss Lola, who is working on a piece with a song about butterflies.

Butterfly Headpiece of Holographic vinyl UV resin and Angelina Fantasy Film for Miss Lola Rose by Suzanne Forbes August 2022 6Then I had to take a hiatus as my health crashed, and I finally finished it a week ago.

It’s made of holographic vinyl, UV resin and Angelina Fantasy Film, plus lots of gradient pearls, AB crystals and gold lace.

Butterfly Headpiece of Holographic vinyl UV resin and Angelina Fantasy Film for Miss Lola Rose by Suzanne Forbes August 2022There are a dozen hand-cast pink UV resin butterflies with glitter inclusions, panels of iridescent Angelina Fantasy Film in the laser-cut butterfly frontispiece, and uncountable pearls and crystals on the flowers.

Pink Butterfly headpiece for Lola Rose by Suzanne ForbesThis might be the last big piece like this I do, as it’s harder for me to sit up for long periods.

I’m glad this one came out so well, and I cannot wait to see what Miss Lola does with it.

Lola Rose birthday drawing by Suzanne Forbes Aug 22 2022As for the drawing of Miss Lola, I made it during my sick leave cause I was so inspired I HAD TO DRAW!

I took six weeks of sick leave from my Patreon this summer, my first break in seven years. But on August 22, Miss Lola had her birthday cabaret. The power of Berlin’s drag scene and Miss Lola Rose in particular is so great, I was moved to make this drawing while watching her livestream from Tipsy_Bear_Berlin. Lola went to special lengths to make sure me and other housebound folx could watch, and it meant so much to me to share in the experience.

What a show!!

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to continue documenting and decorating Berlin performers as a shielding disabled person.

 

Big Gay Wedding: the guests, in their finery!

Aurah at the Big Gay Wedding by Suzanne Forbes September 13 2022The theme for the Big Gay Wedding this summer was “Hats and Headpieces”.

The grooms wore headpieces created by me; the guests expressed themselves in so many incredible ways! Above, Aurah Jendafaaq at the reception. Aurah is a Genderf*cking Musician, Performance Artist, Entertainer & Meme Queen! We had the nicest chill time while I drew this.

Cupid at the Big Gay Wedding by Suzanne Forbes September 13 2022I loved this Cupid hat and look.

Drag community invention is boundless. More drawings coming eventually!

Dear ones Gieza and Tomi celebrated their wedding at beautiful and historic Zionskirche in Berlin this May, and I was honored to live-draw it.
