RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 Top 4!

We are rapidly approaching the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8!

I am both excited and sad that in a few weeks there is going to be a new Drag Race Super Star. I mean this season has been so amazing I just don’t want it to end. I have loved every single queen this season and so to have it come down to this top 4 is crazy.
I just love them all so much that I don’t know who will win. And I don’t know who will go home to make it top 3. It’s a close competition this season and so it’ll be a great finish.
But until we know the winner, I thought I would give you my thoughts on the top 4. And also maybe talk about some queens I am sad to have seen go. So without further ado: our top 4!

Bob the Drag Queen
Who doesn’t love Bob? I mean I’ll admit sometimes she can be a bit too loud but she’s pretty great. I agree with Michelle that she can’t do full on glam but other than that she’s a solid queen. I don’t think I really have a bad thing to say about her. I can now fully see why Bianca del Rio loves her. And I still live every time she walks into the room purse first. Can we please have the purse be an accessory in future seasons to come?

Chi Chi DeVayne
Sassy, Southern gal. Did not think much of her at first. But she has definitely proved that she is more than just a cheap queen. I loved her puppet portrayal of Bob. It reminded me a lot of when Ben de la Creme did Bianca del Rio in season 6. And I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. Still, there’s still something about her that isn’t standing out to me. I don’t know what. I think I’m too focused on Bob and Kim Chi to really care about the other top 4. So I guess you could say I’m a little biased…is that bad?

Kim Chi
I can’t hate anything about Kim Chi. Not a thing. She’s so wonderful. I mean yeah, the runway walk and the dancing aren’t great but she can do everything else. I loved Kim Chi’s book ball story/runways so much. I just love everything about her. So to me Kim Chi can do no wrong. And her friendship with Naomi is super cute. Vote for Kim Chi!

Naomi Smalls
Definitely someone I underestimated and didn’t really like. At first I thought she was just relying on body but she is so much more than that. I think the main reason I don’t like her is that she can be really catty – especially with Derrick in the last episode but at the same time she did redeem herself. So I’m not really sure where I stand with Naomi. All I know is, is that she definitely more than the model type I thought she was going to be.

And those would be our top 4 girls! Clearly I am leaning more towards Kim Chi and Bob the Drag Queen as my favourites but who will actually win, I have no idea. I just know I don’t want this season to end. It feels like it’s been going way too quickly.
Now moving on to some queens that I was sad to see leave the show:

Acid Betty
So if you follow me on Twitter, then you know I had a lot of love for Acid Betty. I loved her runway looks and her personality so much. I just didn’t want her to go. Sadly, her Snatch Game really was flat and I was surprised that was the case. She doesn’t strike me as the type of queen to flake on her impersonations. So I do understand why she had to leave, but that doesn’t mean I was happy about it.

Derrick Barry
Okay so I’m maybe not that upset Derrick is gone. I mean it was between her and Bob and so…Derrick was right to go home. I’m surprised she lasted as long as she did though. I mean she tried so hard to break out of her Britney impersonation. But she was still Britney. Although I did like that she always stood up for herself. And I also give her credit for at least trying to do her eyebrows differently, because that’s not an easy thing to do. It’s hard enough to fill in your eyebrows without overdrawing them nevermind paint ones on from scratch…

Thorgy Thor
I really loved Thorgy. She was so fun. I mean I wish she had at least won a challenge before she left. It wasn’t as if she was horrible at everything. Until the challenge where she got eliminated of course. I just feel like she had so much more potential. I don’t know. There’s just something about her that made me want to see more of her so I was sad to see her leave. But at the same time it’s understandable why she was eliminated. She was a bit too scatterbrained I think. Still, I look forward to seeing her in the reunion.

And so this brings me to the end of my second post about RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8! Like I said, I loved all the queens this season, some more than others but I am super excited to see what the finale holds in store for us.
Will I make another blog post when the winner is revealed? I don’t know. I think it depends on how I feel about it. Either way I will definitely tweet about it so if you want to know my thoughts on the finale then follow me on Twitter.
In the mean time, feel free to check out my last blog post on Drag Race, sharing my first impressions on the season 8 queens. We have definitely come a long way from when these girls first walked into the work room.
Who do you think will be America’s Next Drag Super Star? Let me know in the comments below!

My Tumblr Blogs

I just wanted to make a little blog post to let you all know that I don’t just have this one blog but I have several.
If you know me, then you know that I like to use the internet to express myself. Sort of put myself out there into the world. And one way that I like to do that is through blogging. And in 2011/2012 I found a blogging website called Tumblr.
I don’t really remember how I found it but I just know that I can’t stop using it now that I have it. I think I have had a Tumblr blog since 2012 and it is where I started to write blog posts regularly again after I stopped using Bebo. But I soon found that Tumblr was not the best place for a proper blog.
To me Tumblr has always been a place for gifs, fandoms and internet memes and so now when I use Tumblr it’s mainly to reblog something that Tyler Oakley has reblogged.
Although I do have a few Tumblr blogs and so I thought that I would tell you about them today in case you are interested in seeing what else I get up to on the internet.

My main Tumblr. This is the blog I have had since I first got Tumblr. I think I had one before this but I don’t remember. Anyway, this blog has been through a lot with me, from the days I used to write long text posts on Tumblr about my school days to the Instagram posts I would share, to the random gifs I would reblog of the TV show that I like.
It’s got everything, but mainly it’s for my fandom things.
I recently changed my Tumblr URL because my old URL used to reflect all of the fandoms I was in but since I started Tumblr my fandom interests have shifted a lot. So I thought the fangirl-stuff name would cover all my bases. My old URL was CullenGleekVonVanity1864 – which is a mouthful but I was really proud when I came up with it haha. Let me break it down for you: Cullen = Twilight, Gleek = Glee, Von Vanity = Blood on the Dance Floor and 1864 = the Vampire Diaries. Those were my main loves of 2011.
Now I have way too many fandoms to fit into a username and so I feel like this is a good URL to stick with, at least for now. Maybe I’ll change my mind again in the future. Who knows?

My second longest running Tumblr blog. Thanks to this blog, I now know that an Animal Crossing fandom exists. And it is wonderful.
So I really only started this blog because I took a lot of screenshots when I played Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City, and I wanted somewhere to put them. I had no idea Tumblr had a little community for Animal Crossing players.
This is the blog you want to go to for anything I have Animal Crossing related. At first, I didn’t think I could have a blog dedicated completely to one topic but turns out I can.
Animal Crossing has been a love of mine for a long time and so to be able to share that love with other people is amazing. So if you want to know about any of my adventures in any of the games in the Animal Crossing series, this is the place to go.

This blog is now kind of dead…mainly because I stopped playing the game Tomodachi Life.
I was so excited when I first got the game and I really wanted to have a blog dedicated to my gameplay of Tomodachi Life, similar to the way I did with my Animal Crossing blog.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t as committed to Tomodachi Life as I am to Animal Crossing. I also found that after a while the Tomodachi Life gameplay got extremely repetitive after a while.
It was kind of like a super watered down version of Sims. And you didn’t really have as much freedom with the game as you would have liked. And so when I stopped playing the game, I stopped updating the blog.
I still have it up on Tumblr though if you are interested in seeing it. I think I had a lot of interesting people on my island. Mostly YouTubers, some people that I knew. But yeah. It was good while it lasted.

My latest Tumblr blog. Again, like with Animal Crossing I have a lot of love for the Sims.
I have been in love with the Sims since the Sims 2 for the PS2. We used to have a demo disc for the PS2 that had loads of game demos on it and I would play the Sims 2 one all the time. I did eventually get the full Sims 2 game but still have yet to complete it.
Since then, my love for Sims has grown, so much so that I thought it was time to dedicate a Tumblr blog to it.
I currently only post screenshots from my Sims 4 gameplay and also reblog custom content that I have installed in my game but I hope to continue to document my Sims adventures here just like I do with my Animal Crossing ones on my other Tumblr blog.
So if you are looking for anything of mine that is Sim related, I recommend you check out this blog.

And so those are all of my current Tumbr blogs! I am pretty sure I have had others in the past which I have deleted because they didn’t work out. But these are the four main ones that I have right now and plan on sticking with for the foreseeable future.
And of course I will also be sticking with this blog. Even though I feel like I haven’t written here in a while. I think it’s been over a month since my last post. I do promise to try and update whenever I can but sometimes, I don’t really have much to blog about. But the semester is almost over, and soon I will have completed my first year at university, so be sure to stay tuned for a recap of that in a month or so!
