We have had a lot of sexy challenges this season! Between Alana’s love for sexy…everything…to the challenges, I’m just about all sexed out! This sexy challenge is for alien circus performers. Sexy alien circus performers.
SPOTLIGHT CHALLENGE: work in teams to make a sexy alien circus performer that can withstand an actual circus performance.
Tate & Frank: Sexy Punk Rock Alien Contortionist
Lauren: Well, I appreciate that they went straight carny with this one, something none of the other’s really did. I think the hair was a cute touch, but the stomach area looks super weird. I think the flesh tone that they used may hurt them a bit, since it doesn’t totally read ‘alien’ to me, even though the sculpt does. I also love that their backstory includes a martian shipwreck and a band called Dumpster Duck. These two crack me up. It’s the icing on the cake when they consistently create really exciting pieces.
Judges: Stomach area is muddy, love the paint job, overall really liked the piece
Laura & Roy: Sexy Dude with a Whip & a Parasite
Lauren: I’m not totally sure what’s going on with the parasite. I guess I get the carny sidekick thing…but I’m also not sure if that’s what it is. I do love the paint job, and the whole head is really nice, though I think the
Judges: Not fond of the overall blue, don’t like the parasite placement, not your best effort, an overwhelming display of poor self-editing.
Miranda & Eddie: Sexy Galactic Contortionist
Lauren:I love the head sculpt a whole lot. It’s so smooth, so well painted, it’s so symmetrical, really just a lovely job. I’m shocked that Eddie helped with the back, not because he hasn’t been improving throughout the season (he has), but because it was so seamless. I did actually like his body sculpt, though the judges didn’t really talk much about it because they were fawning over the head. Also: vagina.
Judges: Excellent, beautiful, loved the area around the ears, eyes and jaw
Alana & Laney: Sexy Scale-y Alien Ringmaster
Lauren: These two were having communication issues from the start, and it hurt them all the way through. Alana, for her part, tried to be diplomatic with her concerns, but it doesn’t seem like Laney is the type to respond well to that kind of criticism and probably works better with direct issues and solutions. Understandably, Alana was more concerned about the issues their makeup faced than Laney because Alana has gone home before for exactly these kind of mistakes and was more willing to admit where changes need to be made. Laney is younger, a FaceOff rookie, and hasn’t yet been in the bottom for a challenge, so she is already in a much better position to overlook issues. Overall I don’t hate it, but there is a lack of cohesion. I disagree that he doesn’t look alien though. And I actually think the mouth area is sexy, so there’s that.
Judges: Falls short. In every way. Face isn’t sexy, bad paint job
WINNER: Sexy Team Miranda & Eddie, with Miranda winning her 4th challenge in the competition.
LOSER: Sexy Team Alana & Laney, with Alana going home. It was actually a really shitty moment because I think she has the talent, and has shown the talent, to stay in the competition. Unfortunately this piece didn’t cut it and someone had to go, and because Laney didn’t have as much to do with the work by the time it got to the stage, there was no one left but Alana. Shitty. I imagine she is going to have a great career, but I’ll miss that whacky ginger.
