Inspired by tarot cards and the work of Marco Brambilla, season 5 of RuPaul's Drag Race features goddesses and art of different cultures. RuPaul, portraying a benevolent heavenly presence introduces the latest queens competing for the throne. They are resented in all their stunning glory in individual tableaus. Multi-layered environments were created using a combination of green screen footage, 3D and 2D motion graphics and photos.
