How long do I get the drag queen performers for my party when I book online through The Illusions the Drag Queen Show?
All default private parties are at least 1 hour long unless you specify less time. However, that doesn’t mean the strippers won’t stay longer! If they are having a great time (and receiving good tips), they will stay longer, if they are not booked at another event immediately after)
What if I need a drag queen or drag queens for longer than an hour? Could I pay the drag performer/s to stay longer while they are already there?
If you know in advance that you will want to hire a drag queen performer for longer than an hour, it is necessary to specify that in the booking form in advance. This is to ensure you can have the entertainer or entertainers for the time you need, keep in mind that they may have other shows at other locations right after yours so they may not be able to stay.

How are tips handled? Are they included in the booking deposit and cash upon arrival?
The online booking fee allows us to tell the drag queen performer you are serious about hiring them for your party. The cash upon arrival is just the base pay for the drag queen(s) and does not include tips. As always, they are very grateful for the tips and will drag their asses off for them!

How does tipping work, is there a minimum requirement?
We don’t enforce a requirement for tipping; however, we believe that the drag queen or drag queens should be compensated for a job well done. Tips are greatly appreciated! The drag queens work hard to hone their skills and get into that makeup and hair, so this means working when they are not working, practicing, and training! Our drag queens are the best in the world and spend countless hours honing their skills each week! An average tip of at least $20.00 per attendee is a great start and the standard rate but this should be adjusted higher for an excellent performance!
Something came up and I need to cancel the drag queen(s) reservations. What should I do!?
We apologize for the inconvenience but there are no refunds on booking/deposit fees once you pay online. We can, however, reschedule your drag queen or drag queens, if you need to cancel! If you cancel greater than or equal to 72 hours before your drag queen is booked, it is free of charge. If you do so with less than 72 hours’ notice, there will be a $25 re-booking fee.
Can we take pictures/photographs?
YES! Photos are generally allowed but please be mindful that some of these beautiful performers work hard to look the way they do, so take good care of them and snap away!
Are you allowed to touch the drag queen(s)?
Yes, of course! It wouldn’t be that fun to hire a drag queen for your bachelor, bachelorette party or any event and not get a hug or put your arm around their shoulder for pictures but, that’s it!
