War Drags You Out: World Political Figures Made into Drag Queens

Vladdy Pushin' (1952)

Inspired after attending a drag show for the first time, Saint Hoax decided to deconstruct the "recipe" of making an iconic queen and came up with the following:

1- Flamboyant name
2- Fierce persona
3- Defining outfits
4- Personalized hairdo 
5- A trademark feature
6- One hell of a PR team

Noting the similarity between that and what it takes to craft a political image, Saint Hoax decided to apply the techniques to do make-overs of some of the world's most famous (and infamous) political figures in the art series War Drags You Out:

I then realized that it takes that same exact effort to make a leader. 
A rush of images containing Hitler's mustache, Bin laden's headgear, Obama's campaigns, Saddam's narcism crossed through my mind. It got me thinking that behind every "great" man, there's a queen. 

Like drag queens, political/religious leaders are expected to entertain, perform and occasionally lip-sync a public speech.  But unlike drag queens, the fame hungry leaders don't know when to take their costumes off.

Hitleria Hysteria (1889 - 1945)

Madame O' Sane (1937 - 2006)

Georgia Buchette (1946)

Ossie B' (1957 - 2011)

Baricka O'Bisha (1961)

Kimmy Jungle (1983)

I'll bet there are only 2 of the people featured here who are (or would be) amused by this- Bush and Obama. Can't picture the others able to see the humor at all!
