As those of you who've been keeping up with RuPaul's Drag Race on Logo are well aware, Sharon Needles was just crowned America's Next Drag Superstar. What makes her victory meaningful for horror fans is that Needles is an unabashed fan of our favorite genre, which has inspired much of her outrageous wardrobe. More after the jump.

According to People, "After weeks of competition – not to mention countless wigs, sparkling outfits and especially oddly colored contact lenses – Sharon Needles was crowned America's Next Drag Superstar on RuPaul's Drag Race."

"Sharon, from Pittsburgh's underground drag community, beat out polished veteran performer Chad Michaels and a feisty young showgirl named Phi Phi O'Hara on Monday's episode. The queens from the Logo show's fourth season were at a party at XL nightclub in New York City to watch the show and celebrate Sharon's big win, which includes a $100,000 prize."
