Nothing can compare to a drag queen using their creativity in homage to some of the greatest creators. On a recent episode of La Más Draga, a drag queen competition show in Mexico, the queens were given an assignment: Guillermo del Toro monsters. Del Toro is a master of horror, and seeing his creations come to life in drag will make all the queer horror fans shriek with excitement. 

To say the queens delivered is an understatement because they reinvented these creatures into stunning works of art.

Huma Kyle came through with the kind of reveal that drag competition fans long for these days. It’s more than a quick wig reveal, she completely changed her character. We were gagged when she showed up as The Faun from Pan’s Labyrinth and left us floored when she revealed The Pale Man underneath! 

Gretha White also brought it with their own version of The Pale Man, but a bedazzled version that is just as show-stopping.

Light King brought it with their own Hellboy, who del Toro directed in 2004. The queen even made sure that the horns got chopped down during her time stomping the runway. Taking that masculine energy and giving it a feminine twist is something we didn’t know we needed until we saw it for the first time.

No Guillermo del Toro-themed drag runway would be complete without an appearance of the Grand High Witch from The Witches. Liza Zan Zuzzi nailed this look, complete with grotesque makeup and form-fitting purple gown. The character might be known for eating children, but Liza Zan Zuzzi absolutely ate this category.

You can check out the episode below to see the rest of the looks including Hidden Mistake’s Crimson Peak look, Peke Balderas Angel of Death look from Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and more.
