Queens Show Off 6 Canadian-MADE Looks For Halloween

A few of your fave Canada’s Drag Race winners as well as contestants from the upcoming Canada’s Drag Race: Canada vs the World show off what they are wearing for Halloween this year…

“When our drag superstars bring iconic characters to life, the results are bound to be spectacular. The queens from Canada’s Drag Race continue to bring their best to the table,” explains Mathieu Chantelois, Executive Vice-President of Marketing and Public Affairs at the Canada Media Fund, who heads up the MADE | NOUS campaign. 

For over five years, the MADE | NOUS campaign has shined a light on Canadian creators and content, including film, TV, and video games.  

In order to showcase some Canadian icon-inspired, fabulous looks for Halloween, the campaign has reunited Canada’s Drag Race winners as well as contestants from the upcoming Canada’s Drag Race: Canada vs the World, which will start airing on Crave at the end of November.

Kendall Gender
As Amanda Brugel / Rita Blue
The Handmaid’s Tale

After meeting Amanda Brugel as a judge on Canada’s Drag Race season two, and being such a huge fan of The Handmaid’s Tale – it only felt natural to step into her shoes (or in this case – slippers)

Stephanie Prince

Killing Eve

Sandra Oh is one of the most influential and talented Canadian actors having broken through to the mainstream market from her days on Grey’s Anatomy to Killing Eve and even her scene stealing take in The Princess Diaries

Gisèle Lullaby
Dans Le Role Dorval / Criquette Rockwell
Le Coeur A Ses Raisons

Anne Dorval is one of the most remarkable and multi-talented Canadian artists I know! From Chambres en Ville, to the wonderful films of Xavier Dolan, she knows how to give a moving and memorable performance. To me, her collaborations with the hilarious writer Marc Brunet, like the Rockwell twins, greatly informed my sense of humour. To this day, Ashley (Le Cœur a ses Raisons) is the most difficult character I’ve had to emulate, but it brings me so much joy to play her. 

I’m honouring her today because she is incomparable, inspiring, and isn’t afraid to make fun of herself – like me!

Priyanka
As Ed The Sock

Ed the Sock…. I know what a choice! Growing up in Whitby Ontario, all I ever wanted to be was a TV host so I watched so much television and observed all the many tv hosts that there were. The reason why Ed the Sock stuck out to me was because there was an unapologetic approach to his way of interviewing and being. This inspired me to be whoever I want to be and continue to push the envelope.

Rita Baga 
Dans Le Role De Pascale Bussieres / Alys Robi
Ma Vie En Cinemascope

Pascale Bussières brought to our big screens an iconic lady from francophone culture, Alys Robi, in the film Bittersweet Memories. Her performance even earned her a Genie Awards for Best Actress! 

The film really blew me away and showcased the incredible career trajectory of the first female Quebecer artist to make it internationally. Plus, her career had its start at the Théâtre National in 1936, right in the neighborhood which is now the Village in Montreal, a neighborhood that has long looked out for people who express diverging genders and sexualities.

Icesis Couture
As Pamela Anderson / CJ Parker
Baywatch

I chose Pamela Anderson in her iconic role as CJ Parker of Baywatch because in my generation, Pamela Anderson was THE blonde bombshell. Growing up, Pamela was plastered all over my walls, all over my TV screen and all over the magazines. As a kid, she was the definition of beauty to me and would end up being a part of the reason I decided to do drag. She is one of Canada’s icons and I’m proud to represent her even in this little way.


Want to see these six queens take the stage? Good news! They’ll be reunited for one night only.
