The Art of Drag Turns Game of Thrones, Marvel, and More Into Works of Fabulous Fandom Fashion

Flame Con is the world’s largest convention dedicated to LGBTQ+ fandom. It returned to New York City’s Times Square last weekend and celebrated its fifth year of existence with Fire Ball, a Smörgåsbord of performances referencing some of the most popular properties in nerd culture.

Drag. Burlesque. Superheroes. Airbending. Jigglypuff. It’s a classic recipe for the best night out in ages—the Long Island Iced Tea of queer fandom, if you will. The ball was hosted by Ginger Rodger, who also did a hilarious Captain America/Bucky Barnes tribute we just loved.

Check out the video above for some of the standout acts! There’s Abel Rey’s Legend of Zelda striptease, Blvck Laé D.’s drag take on Daenerys Targaryen (complete with S&M dragon backup dancers), an extremely acrobatic interpretation of Agent Smith by Twinky Boots, and an absolutely magnificent 10-minute Avatar: The Last Airbender tribute led by Megami as Aang. It was definitely an energizing night.

A Player Recreated The Iron Man Vs. Captain America Fight Scene In Dreams

The early access Dreams Creator has been out for a few weeks and that seems to have been enough time to let players start creating some really cool stuff. For example, a wonderful recreation of the famous fight scene from Captain America: Civil War.

The animation work was handled by the Dreams player Tamir Williams, who says on Twitter it took him around 12 hours to animate this scene.

Williams also credited other Dreams players who made different parts of the scene, like the shield or mountains in the background. This is a good example of how Dreams being so collaborative might help make it easier for more people to create things without, for example, needing to model every character themselves.

A full video recording of the fight was uploaded to the Project Genesis YouTube channel, which is a channel dedicated to cataloging and covering Dreams creations.
