While We Weren't Looking, A 'Buffy' Baddie Became A National Treasure

A couple of months ago, we shared with you Tom Lenk’s divine divas cosplays. The former Buffy The Vampire Slayer baddie has made an art form out of thrifty drag that employs drawn-on fishnets, penne pasta locks, duct tape up ‘dos, and rubber gloves as Babs-appropriate cuffs.

When you don't have a @tonyawards_ ballot, just grab a wig cap package: like $8 for 10 on @amazon? Get that @barbrastreisand #LenkLewkForLess and steam out that wig cuz Babs isn't gonna put up with a ratty wig. Also isn't my front door NAILING THIS LEWK?!!!

But just when we’re all in desperate need of some warmth and silliness, Lenk has taken his gloriously janky drag to the next level with his parody video of Adele’s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).” Not only does he nail the look for less—pardon me—#LenkLewkForLess, but this fearless queen has some fun with the “what’s she saying”ness of it all.

Dare to compare:

Get the @adele #LenklewkForLess with two floral print jackets when you can't find cheap flowers near Covent Garden: £24 at @tk__maxx. Backdrop: £FREE from someone's doorway next to Bloomsbury Park. OBVS I'm the ORYGYNAHL MAXXANISTA. Get the MAXXimum SAYVINGS with #London #LenkLewkForLess #flowerpower and use those savings to SEHN YEH LUHV TEWYAHNOO LUH HUH VUH💗💗💗💅🏽🎶 #THREEKWEENS I WILL MISS YOU LONDON! See you next time!

He’s also given us all we really want from the Olsens:

Craving something more upbeat? How about some impromptu “Eye of the Tiger?”

Here at #LenkLewk the motto is go off script and ALWAYS GIVE THEM WHAT THEY DIDN'T KNOW THEY WANTED. Prepare LESS and WING IT more and FORGET THE WERDS ON PERPUS with #LenkLewkForLess. #eyeofthetiger P.S. I think this might be the #LenkLewk version of #Ann-Margret running towards the camera, running away from the camera in #BYEBYEBIRDIE?
