Welcome back to Alternative Miss UL! We’ve been looking forward to this event for a while and it has finally arrived! This year was an absolute ball! Both the audience and competitors had a fantastic time with it and we can’t wait for next year!
This year, we had four of the very best amateurs:
A rapper from humble beginnings trying to find his place in the world, preferably a place with parking for his horse. Also refers to himself as ‘The Castletroy Slim Shady’.
If she’s not blindly drunk then she is more than likely seeing colours, mainly blood red, from the cocktail of assorted drugs to keep her quite and serene! When those drugs meet drink, well anyone at AMUL saw that tragedy!
Our winner, Natalia Pills:
Former roadie extraordinaire, in her own opinion, hasn’t eaten solid food since 1993, hasn’t been 100% sober since before that. All the class of a brick with less of an IQ. Called a train wreck by those around her, thinks it’s because people can’t take their eyes off her. Think Patsy Stone mixed with Courtney Love with a healthy slab of Miss Piggy as a style icon!
and Anita Cocktail:
A self proclaimed ‘high class Lady’ with overconfident opinions of herself and her singing ability. She is currently trying to get the community to refer to her as Lady Anita Cocktail. With no real sense of the word fashion, she shows up in whatever she has on hand that day, whether it’s appropriate or not. She is not a graceful loser.
This year, the same as the years before, our contestants went through three rounds; the Personality Round in which they spoke about themselves and who they are (a favourite of all Drag performers everywhere), The Lip-Sync For Your Life Round in which each contestant chose their own song to lip-synch to and last but not least, The Surprise Round where all the contestants have to lip-sync to a surprise song. This year there was extra spice added when each of the contestants was handed a piece of paper with a Spice Girl on it. Each of the Drag Performers was then to lip-sync to Wannabe by the Spice Girls. Natalia received Scary Spice, Notorious received Baby Spice, Luna received Sporty Spice and Anita received Posh Spice (FINALLY!). The unanimous winner overall was Natalia Pills, with Notorious K.I.D. as first runner up.
The night was hosted by Bear Thrills and Alternative Miss UL 2012 Titfanni.
The night also included performances from our favorite regulars, Connie Liebe and Titfanni.
