    Hopefully there’ll be a war and we’ll all be DEAD BY NEXT TIME

    Jasmine has been doing some live videos that clear a few things up:
    • The lack of talking heads were apparently because she left early - she got annoyed that Shangela was turning up late all the time, and decided to remove herself rather than have her time wasted (Shangie did call her afterwards to apologise).
    • She didn't get replaced by a body double - she made the veil with a thicker material than intended, meaning it was rubbing off her makeup on the runway so she decided to keep it on, please
    • She had a go at Eureka off-camera for being too much during rehearsals (I know what you're thinking, this one just doesn't sound FEASIBLE but there it is :basil:)

    Oh and I totally missed this until I saw it pointed out online - Jasmine isn't in the onesie musical scene AT ALL, despite being the one who asks if they all had the same dream at the end :D

    This is the difficult Jasmine I need in the AS4!

    You should have a bottle of prosecco first

    It makes it better

    VISAGE looked good. I don't know what she's doing but the face is looking GOOD - actually I do she's seeing some dermatologist it St John's Wood who does these weird ultrasound based mini-lifts. Maybe I will give it a go

    This was dreadful

    Sonique and Mayhem’s runways were great though

    You miserable buggers :D what were you expecting? If it’s going to be every year, I wonder what it’ll be like if there’s no Christmas album to push? The shitty songs didn’t help. But it was basically a Comic Relief special for better or worse.

    Eureka was annoying and she only really has that “ham hock” kick, but the runways were decent

    Jasmine... just as I thought. trash! Good luck in AS4 gurrrl

    Sonique was such a weird addition but she looked great. Her lip sync was a lip stink though

    Kim Chi I was excited to see, but I loved her entrance look way more than the runway. She looked like Kimmy Jong Un in the talking heads though, WTF

    Mayhem was great, even if her gurning is a bit annoying. What the hell was that demon runway about though?!

    Latrice was fine. I like her, but I don’t really see what she does apart from surprise splits, I’ve never particularly liked her runways... she will be kept in AS4 but I can’t see a win. I did like her entrance outfit as Hordriss the Confuser from Knightmare though. Look it up *sips tea*

    Trixie was really good! I know there are the usual haters, but that runway was great, and surprisingly her 80s dance thing was great!

    Shangela... “they’re blatantly just bringing her back to give her a crown”. I thought so too, and it looked from her reaction that she did too. Turns out they were bringing her back to NOT give her a crown, AGAIN! :D Halleloo. Her looks were polished though, except that rickety snowman mask (otherwise a great idea)

    And I DO love an obvious fake body double, so that last lip sync was a real Comic Relief moment. Did nobody think to do the “Is she going to jump from there?” Line?

    Kind of interesting to actually see Ru perform a little bit

    Mayhem's outfit was supposed to be a nod to Krampus, right?

    [​IMG]

    Jasmine was serving beekeeper/child suffocating on a paper bag realness and I'm more excited than ever for her one-episode arc on AS4. :disco:

    Sonique does look great but I also thought the mince pie outfit was ill-fitting, particularly around the legs. Not the most flattering colour either, though I could see what she was going for.

    The Krampus isn't THAT obscure these days, is it? There was even a film about it a few years ago. Either way it's instantly become one of my favourite Drag Race looks ever - those cloven heels were something else :disco:

    Is it a horror movie? I’m out

    Anyway it was a good look, just wondered why a Christmas special was the best moment :D

    It is a Christmas thing in Europe, isn't it?

    I quite like the idea of punishing vile children with threats of it.

    A few thoughts:

    The whole thing was meh and totally unessential to the Drag Race saga. But that's exactly what I expected it to be.

    Jasmine being completely unbothered is exactly what I'm looking forward to in AS4

    Can we take a minute to talk about that RIDICULOUS Visage/Ru lipsync :D! How many pills did they pop up Ru's arse to get her that excited? Oh and that ropey remake of Aja's jump from the box! :D!

    Ru looked AMAZING in the purple dress, those LEGS heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenny!

    Ru looked amazing on the main stage, the best she's looked since the season 8 finale (ie when Mathu stopped painting her). Delta still puts the wigs a bit too far back on her head, but it was less noticeable due to the style of it I think.

    Terrible. And don’t get me started on the obvious body doubles in that lip sync.

    The whole thing was just an extended advert for the terrible new RuPaul album. Just rotten.

    Michelle Visage couldn't lip sync her way out of a paper bag.

    I thought Ru looked terrible during the lipync but otherwise okay.

    Uhhh... I think the body doubles were supposed to be totally obvious, that’s a comedy trope!

    Not arguing with the second comment though :D

    You thought Michelle was supposed to really be doing a jumping folding thing, and Ru was supposed to actually be doing a flying death drop?

    Ross Matthews really wasn’t that small either, just to be clear, that was a green screen effect

    The first time they featured I did wonder. But after that it was blatantly a joke.

    It was odd but I found it pretty enjoyable and I quite liked some of the music

    She looked absolutely stunning in that purple gown also

    I'm a bit late to the party but I didn't mind this. It was stupid fun. I'd like to see a Halloween special. Oh and the obvious doubles in the Ru and Michelle lipsync gave me Rose Nylund dance marathon teas :disco:

    This was fine but I don't need to see another one next year. Or like, ever.
