The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

All the things you are

It takes more to do drag than just putting on a dress. (Don't even ask.) And while the exact ratio of attitude to cosmetics is debatable, it's always seemed pretty clear to me that if you're going to do this sort of thing, you need a name that will stick in people's minds.

Hence this list:

  • Summer Clearance
  • Carlotta Tendant
  • Anna Phalaxis
  • Visa D'Klined
  • Hannah Kronistik
  • Angie O'Plasty
  • Regina Upright
  • Patty O'Furniture
  • Helvetica Bold
  • Sarah Belle Palsey
  • Tara Neuhohl
  • Leta Horticulture
  • Eileen Portside
  • Molly Coddle
  • Amanda Reckonwith

Disclosure #1: Only some of these are fictitious.

Disclosure #2: In my early online days, one of the nyms I used was "Patty O'Furniture." I claim no credit for its invention.
