A Note From Crystal:
At a young age I think I always knew I was destined to be in
the art of female impersonation. I remember when I was younger and in preschool,
my fellow classmates and I would play house and I would always be the mom.
Maybe it’s my maternal instinct, or maybe it’s just that I have always liked a
nice dress…either way it has me here today!
My freshman year of college I snuck into the bar I would
later call my home and family and saw my first drag show. I can picture it like
it was yesterday; I was watching the infamous Dena Cass. She was wearing this fiery
orange beaded fringe costume and big hair doing a dance song on a Friday night.
I sat in the corner meek and shy not really knowing what to say or do but I
knew at that moment that I wanted to be like her. She has since become one of
my mentors and friends and I can honestly say I probably wouldn’t be doing drag
That year I started doing open stage shows at Studio 13 in
Iowa City. I ran for my first pageant shortly after that and came in second. It
was a preliminary to Miss Iowa USofA and back then I didn’t realize the
importance that would have on my life. It lit a fire in my soul for
competitions and I since have been competing in various pageants. I primarily
ran for the USofA system, one of many great systems. I competed in Iowa USofA
for a 4 years before running for Miss Iowa USofA at Large (a division for plus
sized queens). I won the first year I ran and was ecstatic that I got to
compete at the national level! The next two years I competed and ran at the
national level placing the same each time as “best non-finishing finalist” or
just outside of the top 12.
Last year, I worked incredibly hard to compete at Miss Continental Plus. I am happy to say that it was my first time achieving a top 12 status! I ended 8th overall in the nation which was my greatest achievement. This year I hope to get even farther ahead by putting together an amazing package. I can't do that without your help though so please check out my GoFundMe account or maybe purchase a piece of merchandise. I am teaming up with Coit Photography and Booster this year to give you options of different things to buy this year. A portion of every purchase you make will go towards my overall fund to help me purchase things necessary to hit that goal of winning the crown!
