The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence lived up to the extravagance of their name last weekend at the third annual Project Nunway, a decadent fashion show thrown to raise money for the order's community outreach projects. Local designers teamed up with sisters to design their 2012-inspired ensembles, crafted from recycled materials. The nuns strutted in two runway shows, punctuated by an endearing rendition of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by transgender performer Cassandra Cass.

As a lover of all things "end times," I was smitten with the show. Click through to check out some of the most outstanding looks of the apocalyptic evening.

Sister Pat N' Leather co-hosted the evening with drag performer Monistat, and she upstaged some of the runway looks with her own handcrafted ensembles. This death metal witch-princess getup was my favorite of her outfits; it's easy to imagine her as the ringmaster of the 2012 circus.
