A Weekend in the Closet!

Boy Ginger has spent almost the whole weekend in the closet! No, he hasn't made a shocking lifestyle change, other than that he's not going to live with Miss Ginger's clutter anymore! Ya see, Jimbo and Dan both posted shots of their newly organized closets, and it made Boy G think "dayum, I'd hate for anybody to see my closet right now! At least not Ginger's side!" In addition to sharing a body (most parts of it, anyway) Ginger and the Boy share a huge walk-in closet, custom built when the house was remodeled a few years back. Boy G is pretty good about keeping his side neat, and Celia does his laundry and puts it back perfectly so his side stays pretty organized. Miss Ginger's side is another story! She typically comes home drunk and tired, throws her clothes, shoes, and bag in a corner and doesn't touch them again until the next time she's getting ready for a show and thinks: "I wonder where my boobs are?" So it was time for some purging and organization, so now she has room for everything! So, here's the tour:
The entrance to the closet is dead center, just a few steps from the laundry room, and it divides Boy's side and Ginger's side. Boy's side faces the side street, and a large window was needed to keep the facade of the house balanced. The kitties were the beneficiary of this design fortune, because it created a little window seat for them that Jackson happily models in these photos.
Miss Ginger's side is to the right of the entrance, and she gets a smaller window that faces the back of the house, thus leaving room for a few more drawers of unmentionables. And for those of you who may not know, there is little on Earth that is more unmentionable than the lingerie worn by a sweaty drag queen after performing in a hot, stuffy, bar. As a matter of fact, I'm sorry I mentioned it!
Miss Ginger also created a little sewing area for herself so she doesn't have to pull the machine out and set it up everytime she needs to whip up a little couture that actually fits her largish frame!
And, both Gingers just LOVE shoes, as you can see!











Miss G has a show tonight at the BRB (8pm, locals! Be there!) That bitch better not come home drunk and trash it!

This is my dream closet! Really it is!! I love it so much! Inside I'm organized and neat. Things just got out of control when I was sick and overwhelmed me. I'm slowly getting back in control.

But back to you, my role model! Wonderful and well done!!

Girl, you are so lucky to have the room for all these things. I have to store all my drag crap in the railway closet I call it, in the main hallway and the wigs are all in separte boxes and each wig is on their head forms. Plus you have to walk in sideways to get stuff. You honey should start a organizing company! Your good. Have a blast tonight! PS- Your kitty looks VERY comfty in their too.

Take care-
Maddie

You have really expanded from the
1st Lucy /Ethel outfit,but you were not the fabulous Ginger then-Hope BRB went well Friday night-sorry we missed you and the program.MBC

I just have to tell you this! My friend Tina and I were on the phone, and I told her about your closet. So we both got online and went into major closet envy. She discovered we could click on the photos and embiggen them. So we drooled some more.

Then went to the pantry and freezer pictures. Tina wants to know if you have a commercial freezer because it's so big. I told her I thought I'd seen freezers that large before, so now we have to know.

We spent time enlarging each photo and discussing them at length. She has a sewing machine and serger(?) like yours she said.

Was your closet a room you had converted or did you take part of a room for it? I told you I love all this stuff! Awesome!!

Dan said...

Damn! Thats a nice clost, but better yet, I love Miss G's white boots!

Mark in DE said...

Lisa said...
