I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do about the make-up, I had bought some, but then realised I hadn’t a clue how to put it on! We went to one of the panels, and there was a young lady there who looked like she knew how to have a good laugh. She also looked ex-Goth, so I went up to her and asked her name. “Leonie”, she replied.
Leonie, it turned out, was indeed ex-Goth, but she also used to run a shop in Camden for drag queens. She gave lessons in make-up, which was rather handy, because I’m sure left to my own devices, I would have wound up looking like Ronald McDonald.
