This episode is so frustrating. So frustrating because I’m watching a totally capable women whine on national tv over something that is completely do-able. I’m pretty confident that a lot of this is due to editing…and with that, Miranda is not getting a very good picture painted of her throughout this season. She is immensely talented – I just wish that I could watch the process without the whining, self-doubt and ranting.
SPOTLIGHT CHALLENGE: Personify a Deadly Sin and you must use a signature color.
I’m not gonna lie – 99% of these don’t make any sense to me. As in: I would never guess what most of these were supposed to encompass. 7 Deadly Sins should be so, so easy! I’m at a loss here.
Lauren: Ok. I’m loving the face sculpt, though on tv it read a little like a mask. Here however, it reads a little better. Again, I love that she went totally disgusting with it.
Lauren: This one makes sense to me. However, his execution is lacking. If this woman is so envious of youth and wants to nip and tuck to get there, why not do some extreme plastic surgery here? Why not crazy exaggerated face lift? Totally blown up lips and cheek implants?! This could have been something super nuts and instead he went with hair falling out and painted on stitches. This was certainly not his best moment.
Judges: Really bad edges
Lauren: I have no idea how this is sloth. I have no idea how a pit of snakes relates to sloth. That said, I love the fabrication of the snake. Really clever. The overall look was really well done, but again…sloth? Really?
Judges: Very impressed with the amount of work that went into it
Lauren: Well it’s obviously Gluttony, so there’s at least one success tonight for me. I think the skin tone is really lovely, but the chin is comically oversized. I wish he went a little more realistic with this one. Or out of the box! Gluttony doesn’t have to be a fat guy – it could be a hoarder, it could be a skinny dude with like, pudding all over him. It was a little easy.
Judges: Do not like.
Lauren: What the shit is this? I’m not kidding. I feel like I’m being punked.
Judges: Safe <- REALLY?!
Lauren: It’s a really nice sculpt, but I would never have guessed this was Lust. Not in a million years. Where is the burning in her demon loins?! I see no passion here at all. No frothing desire. No lust. She looks real good, though.
Judges: Beautiful, but need more T&A
Lauren: At the very least, she’s covered in money. Not that you could really tell at all in the final makeup. I guess the boils looked good? I don’t know what I’m doing here anymore.
