'RuPaul's Drag Race' Finalists: What Does It Cost to Do Drag Right?

Bob the Drag Queen and Kim Chi break down the building blocks of fabulousness.

$600.

That's what it costs to put together a passable drag ensemble, according to both Bob the Drag Queen and Kim Chi — one of whom may hold the title of America's next drag superstar come tonight's finale of RuPaul's Drag Race. (There's also the possibility that Naomi "Legs For Days" Smalls could take the crown.)

During a fun sit-down at The Hollywood Reporter offices, Bob and Kim listed the many questions they can't stand answering in their media tour ("What does drag mean to you?" "What is RuPaul like?") before launching into an itemized list of the elements of drag.

Watch as it all adds up.
