Sausage Drag

"Sausage Drag"

I stuffed pantyhose with Polyfil and spray painted the tips with fluorescent pink. I then added tinsel to the pink tips and capped them with a spotted pantyhose.  I used hand dyed yarn to give the tubes "camel toes."  They are hung from a metal ring that has been wrapped in yarn.

I was thinking about Drag Queens after watching RuPaul's Drag Race. I began thinking about the body as a simple form that is gendered by decoration and ornamentation. The phallic forms are created by materials that are designated to women: yarn, pantyhose and tinsel.  I used the decoration and material to gender the original masculine form.
