This month, we attended one of many drag shows in Singapore called Baby Queens & Kings our Founder, Yen's first drag show in Singapore since moving here. Baby Queen's a Singapore’s first-ever drag feature film. A documentary portrait of a young drag queen’s everyday life, featuring Opera Tang as the lead, and a testament to the social attitudes towards queerness in contemporary Singapore. To spice things up, the film featured live shows showcasing stunning OG and baby queens performances throughout the month of June.

The queens poured their hearts into their outfits and spent months perfecting their craft. Their dedication and passion shine through, showing their spirit and determination to break free from societal norms.

We had the opportunity to speak with Buttercub, a baby queen, after her first show EVER and introduced her to our Re-base Makeup Cleansing Balm a crowd favourite amongst our Queens.

When was your first experience in drag?

My first experience in full drag, complete with a wig, dress, heels, makeup, and accessories, was on February 25, 2024. Before that, I had occasionally dressed in feminine attire for a night out, envisioning my male appearance transformed by a simple dress and heels.

How did you come up with your drag name?
When my sister—part of my chosen family—began doing drag a few months before me, she named herself 'Princess.' It's a short and effective name that's easy for people to remember. I'm part of a sister trio within the same chosen family, and we often liken ourselves to the Powerpuff Girls. I'm 'Buttercup' in this trio. That's where it clicked for me; it's short, recognizable, and easy for people to remember and call out. There's also an inside joke among us: my two sisters are twinks, and I'm the cub in the group. So, I changed 'cup' to 'cub,' and 'Buttercub' was born.

Where do you get your inspiration for fashion?
I appreciate things that are well put together, such as pageantry gowns, voluminous hairstyles, extravagant jewelry, and a great pair of heels to complete the look. However, I'm still in the process of defining my personal aesthetic. I find inspiration in anything that strikes me as beautiful, but it must ultimately be cohesive and well-assembled.

How long does it take you to frock up?
It takes me 4-5 hours to get ready, from applying makeup to putting on my undergarments, then my outfit, and finally styling my hair. However, I truly come alive when I finish my makeup by applying my lipstick!

Your favourite De-Drag routine?
My favorite part of de-dragging is taking off my wig and removing my lashes.


We LOVE supporting our queens on and off the stage and cannot wait to see Buttercub slay in the drag world again. 

We’re always looking to learn and grow to do better. So, if you have any feedback on how we can do this, get in touch! DM us or email and our team with happily take on your feedback.
