We Had "RuPaul's Drag Race" Queens Make Over Ken Dolls And Everything Was Terrifying

Don't tell Barbie.

by , ,

Remember Ken? Barbie's original pretty blonde boyfriend? OF COURSE YOU DO! How could you forget the first man you ever took the clothes off of?

Well, famous drag queens from previous seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race stopped by BuzzFeed to give Barbie's boyfriend Ken a glittery drag makeover from head to toe:

So who were the queens responsible for tucking Ken's already tucked ~member~? Just three of the biggest names in the drag world, that's all:

👑 Queen Manila Luzon:

You probably remember Manila as the runner-up from Season 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race and one of the chosen queens to fight for the ultimate crown in the iconic RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race season. And if you don't know her from either, how about you LOVE YOURSELF and get familiar?

👑 Queen Pandora Boxx:

Although eliminated WAY BEFORE SHE SHOULD'VE BEEN in Season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race, Pandora Boxx won Miss Congeniality of her season. But don't let that title mislead you — Pandora means business whenever she beats her face and slips into drag. Heck, she'll even kick your ass in the gym.

👑 Queen Willam:

From starring as Cherry Peck on FX's Nip/Tuck to being the ONLY contestant disqualified from RuPaul's Drag Race, Willam's no stranger to the spotlight. Currently, she is a growing a YouTube star, making her this much closer to total world domination.

Each of these queens had ~10 minutes to give a complete drag makeover to their Ken doll, and they each approached the makeover in very different ways:

Manila went all Project Runway to make a customized look for Ken.


Pandora glued some Hobby Lobby fluff balls all over her Ken to create an avant-garde look.


While Willam took the Human Centipede approach and put melted body parts in places they didn't belong.


So how did these makeovers turn out? Uh...we'll let the pictures do the talking:

Introducing Pandora Boxx's drag daughter "Lady McBottoms."

Lady McBottoms' drag inspiration is Jem and Ronald McDonald. What more could you ask for from a queen?

Introducing Manila's drag daughter "VaGina King."

VaGina's Dragography:

VaGina is just starting out. She's a 19-year-old baby drag queen who's learned all of her makeup tips from YouTube tutorials. She's a combination of Trixie Mattel and Ongina.


Introducing Willam's drag daughter "Caitlyn Dollazoll."

Caitlyn's Dragography:

Caitlyn's drag style is just very dollazoll — very fucked up. She's been through a lot, so don't judge.

  1. Since Mamma Ru isn't around to spill the tea, which queen do you think gave Ken the best drag makeover?
