Exiting RuPaul’s Drag Race doesn’t mean an ousted queen has sashayed away into oblivion forever; since most of them didn’t walk backwards into instant, iconic fame, most of the Emmy-winning reality competition show’s eliminated queens make their name online, still playing along from the land of the dearly departed as they share “oppalent” (R.I.P., Mercedes!) photos on social media of the runway looks they would’ve rocked if they’d remained in the competition. Below, EW has assembled a sickening collection of the slayage that could’ve been, as shared on Instagram by the likes of Soju, Kahanna Montrese, Honey Davenport, Mercedes Iman Diamond, Ariel Versace, Scarlet Envy, and Ra’Jah O’Hara.

RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on VH1. Scroll on for a sampling of what the eliminated queens cooked up (but never served) for the main stage, separated by episode and category.
