Become a Poké-villain with Biqtch Puddin's Game Glow Team Rocket Grunt drag tutorial

Rattatas at the ready!

The grunts of the Pokémon world are used to scurrying around at the whim of their masters before inevitably losing in battle to an upstart child. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be fashion icons while doing it! In this Game Glow episode, we’re showing some love to the Team Rocket lackeys thanks to Biqtch Puddin’s makeup tutorial.

Game Glow: Team Rocket Grunt Drag Tutorial

Styling yourself after a lowlife villain might not be your first pick for a cosplay glow up. But in this Game Glow edition, Biqtch Puddin explains why “the filth of the world” made an appealing choice, and how every character – no matter how low on the villanous totem pole – deserves attention.

Biqtch Puddin’s Team Rocket Grunt drag tutorial takes us through a full transformation, offering tips for how to apply concealer and eyeshadow. And let’s not forget the all-important indignant eyebrows of a rocket goon who’s just spotted Ash and Pikachu sneaking into their compound. 

Once the main details are down, it’s time to apply contouring, blush, and highlights to bring anime-grade definition to inspire awe in the victims of your Poké-crimes. Pop on some lashes, a wig and a uniform, and you’ll be rising through the ranks of Team Rocket from Grunt to Giovanni in no time at all.

If you’re looking to recreate the look Biqtch Puddin creates in this Game Glow episode, you’ll want to check out the Winky Lux website, as they provided all the cosmetics showcased.
