Already started, no? Though that means my favorite episode od every season, the reunion ep, seems to have fallen by the wayside.

Also, many kisses to Veg for the thread title. :*

I liked Anthony's look (and goddamn I love that boy so much) - but I'm annoyed that they'd overlook the crotch and not give the win to Ivy. Heck even Casanova's was fit to perfection.

Holy crap Casanova has learned there are knees! And not just mid-thigh!

Peach. Good riddance. That dress depressed the HELL out of me.

Wendy's was just...I don't know if there are enough facepalms in the world. So glad she's gone - she was a shitty designer in S1, she's gotten shittier with the passage of time. Bleh.

I was kinda disappointed with their efforts overall? I dunno. I thought there'd be more asymetrical flowiness and skin and jumpsuits, I dunno. I felt like they had a really cool challenge and they just kinda meh'd through it? I did like Laura's, and I liked Casanova's a lot though Georgina was right, it wasn't anything new. It was just something you'd already seen executed pretty well.

I don't know why Ivy's was in the top? It was kinda boring to me.

God Emilio fking nailed this. Maybe the only one that had that smack-you-in-the-face feel of REAL graffiti.

Honestly I kinda hated Ivy's. It looked childish to me. She was so in love with her concept but the execution of the print wasnt that great.

Suede! Kayne! Wtf ugh. UGGGGH. Gross. God they were awful. Spray them in the eyes with their own paint & kick them out, blinded, into traffic. Fucking hell.

This should've been a multiple elimination -- everyone who said "aerosol art" in the episode is eliminated.

I only liked ES♥SA's print (everything else was boring or fug), but boy did that "exaggerated denim jacket" look incredibly bulky.

btw his model looks and sounds suspiciously like Aminat from ANTM12.

Bummed that Ivy is not letting her inner demoness out so far. :(

Leeezzarina Sbarro (Leee), Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:04 (seven years ago) link

Ivy's was terrible! Did not understand how she was top 3.

did NOT understand the positive reception of ivy's 'female superhero whose superpower is girl power' (???) concept suit with dumb value words on it

Putting thw boner away, which season was Althea from? The Irina season, yes? I can't remember what kind of style she sent out at all.

Gods Leee You Black Emperor (Leee), Wednesday, 14 November 2012 07:01 (seven years ago) link

Off the top of my head I think it was the Irinia season, yeah.

i'm still catching up with this, but just have to chime in to say that suede's "blue suede" comment after wendy was eliminated was amazing.

tavi as guest judge!!

johnny crunch, Friday, 16 November 2012 02:16 (seven years ago) link

Tavi is a pretty good judge! Very mushmouthed tho

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Friday, 16 November 2012 05:53 (seven years ago) link

Tavi seemed to get into the final judging. Maybe she was just a bit weirded out by the whole thing?
That other lady looked almost upset by the whole thing

Andrae. Welp. I remembered what a mess he was rather quickly. Those buckled zippers were so tragic.

Althea's pants. Fucking hell. they were awful. Like a full, load in the pants front-diaper.

I hate almost everything about Josh's Copacabana clown-college design aesthetic. He is almost always hideous.

I loved Emilio's reaction to not winning. Turn. Confused pout. Exit stage left.

Kinda blown away by how great Casanova is. I remember him as sort of a joke contestant from his season, but he seems like he legit has a chance to win this time.

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Friday, 16 November 2012 07:41 (seven years ago) link

Yeah his style has def improved, he could be a real contender.

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 16 November 2012 17:51 (seven years ago) link

Seems like ILE's plan to make Tavi famous is paying off!

Don't get the hate for Joshua M., it's Hot Dog On A Stick couture.

andrae was really great (not his design obv) in this his swan song ep

"ive made a second desk under my regular desk where i keep my most special things" was so delightful

johnny crunch, Saturday, 17 November 2012 22:44 (seven years ago) link

i love him personality-wise a great deal, I love how excited/terrified he is by every new devleopment or announcement. I just got bummed by his terrible runway performance. I don't remember him being THAT much of a mess last time?

he's a sweetheart though, I will kinda miss him

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 17 November 2012 23:44 (seven years ago) link

i love love loved this challenge! no idea what half of them were thinking though. Emilio's was rad, Anthony's was rad, Ulli's was pretty cool but I hated that baggy/drop-crotch on the male pants.

fuck there was so much bad though. Josh? Ivy? Wtf was Althea.

kayne. oh god the world is safe from kayne now. yay! he needs to be sent to a farm & given safety scissors and felt so he can't harm anyone anymore. jesus christ what is wrong with him. and he always does that face like 'I knoooow I'm crazy right?!' also anyone who thinks adam lambert when they think of androgyny is already off to a horrible start.

part of me wanted Laura to go home so badly for hers. like I was a bit upset that they kept her. It was like the saddest interpretation of Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation Dancers...but with chiffon and horrible, awful things that should never be done to fabric. Like, that was the kind of design that makes me think someone is better suited to cookery. Fucking egGREGious.

Jason wu is adorable. Can we keep him?

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 30 November 2012 07:06 (seven years ago) link

As someone who started this thread, I was always going to love the looks in this episode. Emilio pwned so hard, he ran away with the competition (and his female model definitely is Aminat from ANTM), but I still liked about half of what the designers made. Uli's were hott, and I actually liked Althea's Trek uniforms, and even Josh's (which weren't that androgynous). Hell I even liked Kayne's female outfit.

Ivy's male look was good for a lol. But sorely disappointed that she did not rise to Josh's bait.

Also, the opening credit sequence where Laura, Casanova, and Ivy strike poses in sequence is possibly the campiest thing this show has ever done.

I was in this prematureleee air-conditioned supermarket (Leee), Monday, 3 December 2012 00:45 (seven years ago) link

ULI XPLOSION!

... wasn't all that explosive. :(

Top 3 were various shades of fug and boring, Casanova should've won.

Out of deference to the spirit of this thread, I will not remark on Althea's tank top.

I was in this prematureleee air-conditioned supermarket (Leee), Saturday, 8 December 2012 23:06 (seven years ago) link

lol I thought of u as soon as I saw Althea's tank top

Her dress was 100% Elly Mae Clampett. Or the car-wash booby girl from Cool Hand Luke. Slutty farmgirl chic, lol.

But Ivy should have gone home. Fuck the "idea", her dress was a mess! Wtf.

Liked Casanova's a lot.

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 9 December 2012 00:11 (seven years ago) link

Emilio and Anthony Ryan are the clear top two, I think.

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Sunday, 9 December 2012 00:29 (seven years ago) link

thought it was weird that they bumped Casanova this week

totally thought ivy or Josh should've gone. possibly josh bcz clearly the judges got an eyeful. those shorts were so bad u_u

Laura's lucky the others were so bad, hers was not at all flattering on her model. At all.

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 16 December 2012 03:10 (seven years ago) link

Yeah, at first couldn't believe that Laura was in the top, the shoulders and neckline were all sorts of wrong.

I did warm up to Josh's bralette, but I have to try hard to ignore the Carnivale diapers.

I was in this prematureleee air-conditioned supermarket (Leee), Monday, 17 December 2012 00:02 (seven years ago) link

Really was interested in how much AR's and Uli's designs weighed though, so much junk on both.

I was in this prematureleee air-conditioned supermarket (Leee), Monday, 17 December 2012 00:02 (seven years ago) link

i didn't get the 'mirror crotch' part of anthony ryan's dress

yeah it was kind of a snooze
how the hell is ivy still in this thing. it's not like she's even giving that much drama, she just makes bad clothes and tells everyone else that they're worse than her

Also I may be misremembering but like in the season teaser thing in the first episode, it showed Ivy throwing a fit? So there's still hope?

Only Built For Cuban Linux (Leee), Wednesday, 26 December 2012 23:59 (seven years ago) link

I am glad they've cheated me out of ivy drama, tbh ... I feel vindicated that she's sort of a snooze who designs sad clothes for old ladies who like YELLOW ALL THE TIME YELLOW

i did not like Anthony Ryan's dress at all! I kind of want to see more of Georgina's & Isaac's argument about that.

Emilio's dress looked kinda like a taped-up apron made into a dress. The color on her was the only thing going for it

johnny crunch, Saturday, 5 January 2013 17:11 (seven years ago) link

So my mishearing of Anthony Ryan's "I Rock One" from season 8, where I thought he was saying he was a veteran of "Iraq 1," comes full circle!

Joshua deserved to win (I guess it's that time in the season where he rehabilitates his image), but omg Uli is so fiercely overdue for a challenge win. What's more, she's been bringing teh lolz, both "She wants an Uli dress for her friend's vedding" and this:

Joanna: Do you have any concerns?
Uli: ... Always.

AR deserved to go home. :\

Also, if the whole show was just designers selecting and showing off expensive prints I might still watch.

The bit where everyone wanted to touch Emilio's print was one of my favorite things of the season.

johnny crunch, Saturday, 12 January 2013 22:55 (seven years ago) link

I loved it from the waist up, something about the skirt bothered me, maybe because it looked like it had a bustle.

Totally awesome episode, btw, even if the "Oh we can't decide between a serviceable dress and that awful print" was a transparent ploy for DRAMA (and there's no way they spontaneously hit on the idea of a deconstruction tiebreaker, I'm positive they had it planned, it's just too engrossing and DRAMA).
