With several appearances on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Monét X Change decided she just has too much drag in her closet. Here’s why the All-Stars 7 competitor decided to sell some of her iconic looks to fans.
Monét X Change competed on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ season 10 — and sold some of her outfits from the season
After competing on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10 and snatching the Miss Congeniality crown, Monét X Change returned for All-Stars 4. She and Trinity the Tuck won the crown and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”
During one episode of Sibling Rivalry, Bob the Drag Queen appeared in one of Monét X Change’s jackets. After Monét X Change asked for a thank you, Bob the Drag Queen said she was shocked her friend sold so many iconic outfits.
“I’m saying this out loud and now Monét can’t say I didn’t say this: if you have any pieces from some historic Drag Race moment [that’s just] cluttering up your space, I will buy them from you. Instead of selling them to strangers, I will buy them,” Bob the Drag Queen told her podcast co-host.
“You know, maybe one day I’ll regret selling some of that stuff, but I will say it is very cute to see people tag me on TikToks and be like ‘oh my god, I got the pink outfit…,’” Monét added. “It’s nice to see people wearing them.”
Monét X Change said that her ‘drag just multiplies’
Monét X Change sashays back into the Werk Room for the all-winners season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the artist commented on the sale of several well-known Drag Race looks.
“It was so hard deciding what to sell and what to keep, because Drag Race is obviously very special to me,” Monét X Change said. “It’s a huge part of my life. One day I’m going to look back in 2047 and I know I’m going to wish I had the Plastic Fantastic look or the Kim K look, but it was time.”
“Drag just multiplies. The more s*** you get, the more drag starts to consume every part of your home, and I’m like, I need to part with this and give it to some of the fans so they can live with it,” she continued. “But I did keep both entrance looks — season 10 and All-Stars 4, and I also kept both promo looks, season 10 and All-Stars 4, and I also kept my finale looks. No, I did not, I sold that too.”
Other ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ contestants sold their merchandise to fans
Monét X Change wouldn’t be the only drag performer who sold her Drag Race memorabilia online. The All-Stars 3 winner, Trixie Mattel, posted some of her looks on eBay, with most items earning several bids from fans.
While chatting with Katya about a potential Drag Race museum, Trixie Mattel revealed that she doesn’t preserve her outfits.
