Meet Eva Medusa, aka Dragon Lady. The 55-year-old former banker claims she’s the first and only person to have her ears and nose surgically removed to give her a reptilian visage. Certainly she’s the first to do it while gender-transitioning at the same time.
That isn’t all the Arizonian has had done. As part of her transformation into a “mythical beast,” according to the Daily Mail, she’s undergone nose modification, tooth extraction, horn implantation, tongue forking, eye staining, and scarification to resemble scales. How better to fill out her full face tattoo, which suddenly seems so ordinary?
“I am the Dragon Lady,” she writes on her website, “a pre-op M2F (male to female) transgender in the process of morphing into a human dragon, becoming a reptoid as I shed my human skin and my physical appearance and my life as a whole, leaving my humanness behind.”
Plus, last night Marc Jacobs regrammed Michel Gaubert’s photo of the pandrogynous musician Genesis P-Orridge, famously body-modified to resemble her late wife. It seems to indicate the artist will appear in an upcoming campaign, perhaps not unlike this group campaign. Here’s hoping she’ll have reptilian company.
