Dmitry drops in one of his spectacular interview lines about Heidi looking great in “her little green dress” and then, as dry as a tundra, “oh baby”. I am ashamed to say it has not occurred to me until now that Dmitry might be straight. Not that he gives off a vibe one way or the other, but I just didn’t think about it. I think I had cultivated a pure and asexual love for him to this point. Well that is completely ruined and I am now going to need a chaperone in the hot tub to keep me from trying to make a MiaDmitry nesting doll.
I think I can find a smaller, perfectly formed Dmitry somewhere under there
So the challenge is they are to design a dance costume for the ladies that will be worn at a future ‘special event’. Since these women are trained professionals that need real performance-capable wear, I’m hoping the event is a photo shoot. Obviously the goal is tacky and flashy but also easy to dance in and Heidi points out that the 99% usually sneak in and sit way in the back scraping gum off the floor and they deserve to see something pretty too.
The poor people start at about Row K
The designers are assigned to sketch in the theatre and use some of the standard Rockettes’ costumes as guides/inspiration. I think this is Dmitry’s challenge considering he was a professional ballroom dancer and started in that sort of genre. He should understand movement and a dancer’s needs as well as the showy aspect, but these ‘set-ups’ sometimes turn out badly so now I’m nervous! Blorpheus is, as usual, positive he will do something so amazing that all the Rockette’s bodies will melt off and Nina and Kors will sing Ave Maria spontaneously upon seeing it.
There is clearly room in this collection for a big ugly flower!
The Mood visit is fine for most, although Sonjia is having a hard time getting her head together despite it being tightly wrapped in a cultural stereotype. Elena is the real problem though when she tries to spend nearly double her budget. Apparently shoulder pad stuffing is pricey. I actually would like to see her one way monkey as a dance outfit– one theme I’m sure the Rockettes have not yet exploited is NFL Apocalypse.
Just what the Times Square crows is looking for to commemoriate their Xmas in New York!
Everyone is back and working, but some seem more lost than others. The “chiffonies” leftovers seem right at home with the directive, while the ladies are painfully slogging through. Without Skunk around to juxtapose against, Christopher has lost his identity and starts mimicking either Sonjia in a desperate bid to formulate to some semblance of a personality.
