I think Heidi said it best at the judging of this challenge. “Snooze-Fest” is how she described Louise’s finished design for the Movie Genre challenge. Did anyone else find this challenge boring? Maybe it’s just me, but I really thought last week’s challenge with the newspaper’s was much more inspiring than this one! My understanding was that the designers were to “invent” a character in the movie genre they were assigned, and create a costume worthy of a movie setting using that direction. I really did not see that clearly with many of these designer’s, and the looks they pulled out were not new…..worthy more of a halloween costume rather than that of a movie set! OK, maybe I’m being harsh, but I had to watch this episode twice to see if I had just missed anything (I really fell asleep the first time!), and I was not any more impressed the second time around. Maybe next week will be more exciting.
Louise’s dress/costume was fairly plain, considering it was supposed to be movie worthy. I don’t think she pulled this one out, and almost got eliminated because of the mediocre design.
Ra’mon had lizard on the brain when he was creating the green unitard design that was embellished with these scale looking pieces.
There were quite a few pieces to this costume, and really it was one of the few where I understood the character behind it. I did not think his finished costume was as bad as the judges made it out to be, and not reason enough for him to be eliminated.
Nicolas was right on with his winning Ice Queen costume and defined character. This one was truely stunning. You can certainly tell he has costuming background.
Thanks to our friends at Brother, we keep getting these cool sewing pics from the PR sewing room. Next time I will be sure to post one with the clock…..here’s a question that keeps nagging at me….do you think they are really sewing at the time it shows? Or is that a set-up? Hmmm.
