THE BRONX -

News 12 got a behind-the-scene look at how Victoria, a woman who has been performing as a drag queen for the past year, transforms into Vicky Deville.

She says when she initially started, she thought that drag makeup couldn’t be that hard since he had been using makeup since she was 12.  When she initially tried to put on makeup, she thought she looked great. 

Looking back, she jokes that she wonders how someone let her out of the house looking like she did.

Victoria says transforming into a drag queen is not an easy task.  It can take more than three hours to finish a look with makeup, wigs and costumes.

Victoria says she still loves what she does.

"Drag is going through a renaissance period now where there is more people doing it now than ever,” she says.
