Welcome to the Candy Factory! We are treated this week to a classic and beloved (at least by me) format of forcing designers to use non-materials to construct clothes. This week it’s the candy challenge which can only mean one thing – lots of glue guns! Also we know the contestants will envision tediously detailed designs and then freak when they run short on time. One day for a micro-mosiac is just asking for carpel tunnel. MrsMia’s bff went as Katy Perry for Halloween a few years back and found out quickly that sticking candy buttons onto shoes, belt, skirt, etc… gets old real fast.
It is cute to see how giddy all the designers are picking out their materials; something about a candy shop reaches deep inside of all of us.
Although I was counting on a bit of an escalation from last week, our favorite Skunk channels his manic side and turns on the bubbly-happy in the workroom instead of the bitchy-diva. It is a better version of his personality, but alarm bells are ringing, Winston. Someone this unstable could easily be the one headed for a breakdown. He did put out some good work so there’s that.
There is, of course, the usual scrambling by the less competent and the snarking of the more competent at their fellow designers’ work, but a unique challenge always brings unique meltdowns. Granny Smith proves the fragile one when Tim Gunn’s brutal appraisal of her craptastic fashion drives her to walk out of her interview session. What is that considered? Breaking the fifth wall?Also Buffi the Taste-Slayer is garish. Quelle surprise.
We learn that Fat Morpheus is a bit cocky and bitchy- but smart enough to keep it fairly quiet. Sonjia is less quiet this episode and I am loving her even more. I hope they are slow-rolling her to get better and better. Oh, and Elena burns herself creating Pasta Surprise and acts like a giant baby. Then Chris burns her again with a few pointed remarks and I can just picture her watching the episode.
The output was mostly awful and unwearable, but there were truly some stand out pieces that looked remarkable. Once again, the person who won and the person who lost both deserved it completely in my opinion. I don’t know what it says about me that I am in sync with people like Garcia and Kors.
