WHO Lush Valley (aka Iestyn), Jezza Belle (aka Michaela), Henry, et al WHEN Friday 16th, night WHERE the drag club amateur night WHAT Lush’s first performance! WARNINGS tbd
Iestyn looked at himself in the mirror and let out a soft breath of amazement. Somehow, somewhere along the road, the work Jezza had done had transformed him from Iestyn into Lush, and the big blonde wig was just the icing on the cake.
“Wow. Wow.” He turned back and forth in the mirror, admiring the work from all sides, turning his hips in the borrowed pads. He’d done the bits separately, but this was the first time he was seeing it all pulled together. That, and Jezza was much better at makeup that he was.
She. He was she now. She was Lush Valley, the songstress from Wales, sweet country girl turned city queen.
“I’m so nervous,” he said, looking back at Jezza. “Are you going out soon? Don’t tell me if my whole family is right up the front, I’ll be sick if I look at them.” He knew they would be. Henry had threatened it very seriously. But first, before he went out, he took a selfie and sent it to Addy, with multiple love hearts. Wish you were here!
There were other drag queens rushing around them too, considering it was an open amateur night, but Iestyn tried to ignore them, trying to get into character, which was so much easier with the wig on. He’d practiced and practiced over the last two weeks. It was going to be amazing.
