Project Runway - Season 3 - Episode 6 - Waste Not, Want Not
This is the week Uli was robbed.
This is the week everyone lost their minds.
This is the week where Project Runway tries to break the designers.
This is the week when someone won two challenges "back to back."
This is the week where Vincent has creeped me out beyond the point of no return.
This is the week everyone could have used a little more sleep.
Let's start with what needs to go.
1. Laura's ribcage shots.
3. Heidi's stylist.
Now let's go to what we need more of.
1. Robert and Kayne comedy hour.
3. Tim in a bright green construction hat.
4. Kayne talking about his dumpster diving days.
Now you recap readers, you all know what went down this episode. The designers went to New Jersey - complained about the grayness of the state - and then found themselves at a recycling warehouse. They were given very little sleep and a huge task of making an outfit out of recycled materials they found in the warehouse. Then they were given the insane budget of $25 to use in an art store.
If any of you have ever tried your hand at any artistic trade you will know that $25 will get you a tube of paint, a box of crayons, maybe some glitter, and if you are lucky a paintbrush from the clearance bin.
It seemed like to me that the show was trying their very hardest to get the designers to "crack" by putting as much pressure on them as possible. They made them wake up at 5am - sent them to a foreign city (yes NJ is foreign) - made them sift through garbage in funky green outfits - and then gave them the smallest amount of time possible to make it work. And they must have taken away the good drugs because everyone was in a bad mood.
So the talk of this episode focused on Vincent being insane. Everyone noticed it. Even Heidi! Now that we all admit that he needs to be heavily medicated (I mean come on, how many times does he say he "gets off" on his design?) - please someone tell me HOW IS HE STILL ON THE SHOW? Is it really just because he knows how to construct? Because that does not cut it! (Hehehehe I said "cut it" because this is designing and they cut fabric and cut people off the show….ok I will stop now).
We also are starting to see Laura get testy. Was Keith Michael right when he called her a bad mommy? She does not seem to have patience for anyone on the show. Is she the new villain?
Enough about the drama - let's get to the designs!
WINNER - Michael
I have a lot of love for Michael. He has really shown his talent and his desire to win. He also has such a great spirit. He wasn't my top choice to win this week - but I am still very happy he won. I want him to get to the end and get what he deserves! Go Michael! Go Michael!
And if he keeps on doing his little dance after he is named the winner then keep him on as long as possible!
Almost the winner - Jeffrey
Also on top - but not a winner - Laura
YOU SHOULD HAVE WON - Uli
Uli you are so wonderful and have so much talent. How did the judges not see that this week? I mean really, what happened? The skirt of this dress was so beautiful and detailed. The top was not a halter. I mean what else can they ask for? Uli, even if you don't win another challenge, just keep putting out the amazing work, make it to the top 3 - and then floor them at fashion week!
Good Enough to be In - Robert
You know what, I am getting bored of people saying Robert is boring. Can't we think of another word? This dress wasn't really all that boring - it was shiny and textured and....well, kinda interesting! Yea ok, I know he won't make it to the final 3. That's ok. Just keep him around so he can make jokes with Kayne.
By the way - look at this strange picture of Robert from Tim's Take this week...
Yea, I don't know either.
Safe, but I am not sure why - Angela
Did anyone else think about Bradley when this outfit came out? Maybe he took over Angela's body before he left last week. Or maybe Angela is going back to her kookie ways? Listen we have all been giving Angela so much credit - but remember she has only had 2 good outfits - before that she was all bubble skirts and hookers working at a day camp.
Thank god you weren't cut - Kayne
I will admit I was worried for Kayne. But secretly I really loved the first skirt he did. I don't know what it was but I was feeling it. But Tim didn't like it - so it had to go. But that said, remember Tim didn't like Bradley's outfit once and Bradley almost won that challenge. Who knows what could have happened if the big green flower went down the runway - I am sure we would have heard a GASP from Michael Kors and seen a few nose twitches from Nina Garcia. But fear not - Kayne made it another week.
WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE? - Vincent
Vincent, you are starting to remind me of the creepy guy in the neighborhood that I hide from. You are totally on your own planet but you insist to live amongst the rest of us. You first said your dress reminded you of a child's drawing - and then you start talking about how you "get off" on your design. Ew. Please go away.
I am so sad to see you go - Alison
Alison, I really had hopes for you to be in the final 3. You showed so much potential during the past few episodes. I bet if you were able to get your materials sewed together you would have had no problem. But that didn't work and you were forced to come up with a last minute design. I still have tons of respect for you and I think you are way better than most designers on the show. You will be missed. And I think the designers can even agree to that considering all the hugs and tears at the end of the episode.
But that said, what is up with the bow? I don't get it.
Final 3 - Uli, Michael and Kayne
Next out - Robert, then Vincent, Angela, Laura, Jeffrey (in that order).
I really wish Vincent could go first. I wish I knew what he has done to those judges that makes them want to keep him each week? He isn't that much of entertainment value considering how creepy he has become. Hopefully next week I will be proved wrong and he will be out.
