“Love her so much,” Twink Trash captioned the video.

She explained in the captions on the video that every time she creates a new costume, grandma gets the first look. She takes a photo of the elaborate outfits to share with “her Church friends.”

The user’s uploads are full of other fantastic drag videos, from how the outfits are made to what she’d have worn on each week’s episode of  Drag Race. Instagram is also full of looks from the up-and-coming queen.
