There are some Cher costumes the vendor offers that I'm not too keen on but this beaded leotard and wig are calling me.

OK, I'm really getting into the minutiae now, cornflower blue nails.

"Every drag queen wants to be Cher" šŸ˜¬
Quote:"Every drag queen wants to be Cher" šŸ˜¬

I could write a paper on why that's a gross oversimplification. By which I mean this thread makes it obvious the time, effort and moneyĀ I've put into replicating Cher's most iconic costume but... I don't want to be a drag queen. I have too muchĀ respect for women to consider parodying them. It's... complicated.

Assuming otherwise (based on the statement above and respect for Cher) would be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affirming_the_consequent fallacy ( if A, then B; B, therefore A.)
Exactly.
'All drag queens want to dress as Cher'Ā (if it were true) wouldn'tĀ equal 'Everyone who wants to dress as Cher is a drag queen'.Ā I'd even argue that many stageĀ male Cher impersonators aren't drag queens, at least in the RuPaul sense. I suspect it comes down to whether you're trying to be as accurate as possible (almost a cosplay)Ā or performing a parody (drag).

Oh, I like these definitions. Very accurate šŸ˜‰
OK, I'm repeating some earlier linksĀ but

This is definitely drag parody - the costume's only vaguely accurate and the moves are all wrong - I'm pretty sureĀ CherĀ never did death drops.

Now, the costume and moves are spot-on,Ā this is more impersonation?

Something that appeared on my radar. A professionalĀ costume company, established for forty-something years are offering a made-to-measureĀ 'Turn Back Time' costume on their website for Ā£150. Dear God.
