· Updated on May 28, 2018

We’ve already seen the SICKENING looks that the attendees and RuGirls served up during DragCon New York (check out our Day One and Day Two rucaps), but what about the glamourous exhibitors?

Here’s five of the coolest items you’re going to want to add to your wish list, from fans to awesome t-shirts. Sugar daddies, you better get your credit cards ready.

Dirt Squirrel Fans

There’s no better way of calling shade than the massive whoosh of a fan. Dirt Squirrel have your daily shady requirements covered with their collection of flawless fans.

If you’re after a nice floral printed fan or something a bit more, shall we say, ‘out there’, you’ve pretty much got a wide, open selection. Our personal faves are the “Power Bottom”, “Daddy”, and “Shade” fans, which are suitable for ANY occasion, we’re sure you’d agree.

As owners Wade Hopwo and Daniel Lypchuk put it themselves, Dirt Squirrel products are all about being used to “describe our friends during times of moral inconsistencies or questionable character”.

Abandon Ship Tees

Abandon Ship Tees Abandon Ship best describe themselves as “drunk dudes making graphic t-shirts with fucking love”, and for that reason, we’re sold.The brand, which originally hails from Scotland, focused on creating cool stuff that has an impact, such as their “Fuck Gender Roles” and “I Am Not My Anxiety” designs.If you’re ready to make a statement, Abandon Ship is your new favourite store.

Chad Sell Prints

Chad Sell is an incredibly talented illustrator, who is perhaps best recognised for his depictions of the contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race.

His designs have been applauded by many of the queens themselves, and are available to buy in poster, print, an even book form where each season has its own designated collection.

Marek + Richard Designs

Are you ready to get funky fresh with some in-your-face designs?

Founded by fashion graduates Neil Marek and Robbie Richard, Marek + Richard is all about standing out and having fun, whether it’s through jockstraps, crop tops, sweatshirts, or even kitchenware. Their designs are based around street fashion and pop culture, so you know it’s gonna be on trend.

It’s also worth pointing out that their mascot was serving some serious Fraggle Rock realness on the DragCon floor, and we were loving every bit about it.

Gay Pins!

It seems like the LGBTQ community sure does love to collect enamel pins, and GAYPIN’ create the ultimate ones to have in your possession.

The enamel pins take on everything that’s awesome about the community and fit it into the gayest pins in all the land. Whether it’s reclaiming the term “Fag”, or if you need to “Spill The Tea”, there’s a pin for pretty much any occasion and we love it.
