Dropping his signature vest and shirt, he opted for dramatic pink eyeshadow, massive false lashes, overlined lips and a voluminous blonde wig.

Nate tweeted a clip of his transformation, writing, “Welcome Gail Warnings. Gai in short. Be nice – she’s a newborn. Quite a hairy one, but still…’

Nate had teased his transformation earlier this week, tweeting, “If, hypothetically, a certain dimpled weather host needed a drag name, which one would be best?”

He asked his Twitter followers to vote between Gail Warnings, Misty Showers, Miss Thunder Stood, Nina Floods, Philma Oceans and Icee Winters.

Nate also thanked Valerie Hex, the drag alter ego of James Wellsby, an MC at Yummy Cabaret in Melbourne, for assisting with the character, and circus performer Jarred Dewey for helping complete the transformation.
