Project Runway - Season 13 Episode 6 - Rock the Wedding
This week the designers were tasked with making an unconventional wedding and reception dress. Their challenge was issued by Dita Von Teese, who also guest-judged.
It was also a team challenge….
All the drama after the cut.
Project Runway - Season 13 Episode 5 - The Klum of Doom
Short one this week because my loaner laptop crashed and ate the longer version.
This week, the designers were challenged to create a “fearless, fashion-forward and unexpected” red-carpet look for Heidi Kulm to wear to the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Seasoned Project runway watchers knew to have popcorn at the ready, because the Heidi challenge is one of the toughest each season. It’s also entertaining to see how wrong the designers can be in their assumptions about her taste and personal style.
We’ll see how the Season 13 crowd coped with this after the cut.
Project Runway, Season 13, Episode 4: Remixing an American Classic
I wrote this last week and forgot to post it due to new job dementia…
Lololololol, it’s the Project Runway Red Robin challenge.
Welcome to cognitive dissonance 101. The head of “brand transformation” for Red Robin tried desperately to sell burgers as an option for fashionistas. He didn’t really do a great job of that.
More after the cut.
Incoming - slight hiatus
Because I lucked out and got a new job, I’ll be blogging more sporadically than usual for the next while.
I haven’t been vaporized, abducted by aliens or placed in cloud storage. I’m just headed back to Galway, without my PC. I should be back posting randomness once I’ve found myself a permanent abode and moved the cat, the computer and all of my remaining books into it.
I will try to keep up…
Project Runway Season 13 - Episode 3 - Welcome to the Future
The Marie Claire challenge was early this season!
The designers were challenged to identify a fashion trend for 2034 in celebration of Marie Claire’s 20th anniversary. I know they like designers to be fashion-forward, but this is fashion fast-forward. The potential for disaster is so great the challenge should have come with flashing lights, hazard tape, shrieky violin music and the Robot from “Lost in Space” shouting “Danger, Will Robinson!”. That, or everyone could just play it boring and safe. But there’s no fun in that.

Project Runway Season 13, Ep. 2 - Unconventional Movie Nite
Yay, for unconventional materials!
Boo, hiss for teams.
There’s a lot more after the cut.

we’ll have to see. and red robin, OMG. i can’t believe tim is promoting refrigerator products now. what in the world…
You were probably better off not watching Road to the Runway. I watched it and the first ep back-to-back and was completely lost in a sea of designers.
I know, poor Tim, he deserves so much better. I am petrified about the inevitable Red Robin challenge, I may have to watch most of it through splayed fingers.

orla, we can be PR buddies again!! it’s been too long! p.s. my recap just went up, so check it out.. :) *nudge*
Hey, Katherine! Yay to PR buddies. Your recap wasn’t up when I posted mine so TY for the nudge! I did read it, and you thought things through a lot more than I did. Awesome recap, shall reblog.
See, I loved Sandhya’s stuff in Road to the Runway, and that amazing dress she showed in the culling stage (I can’t think of another word for the triple axing extravanagaza) but I just could not relate at all to what she sent down the runway. She took a heck of a risk from the off, and I’m glad it paid off for her even if I didn’t like it. Korina needs to lay off her. Samantha needs to lay off Angela, Mitchell needs to calm down.
My main worry this season is that, from the preview it all looks to be more about staged drama (brought to you by Red Robin and the word “vagina”) than about the clothes. Which, meh. I hope there are some amazing garments in there too, because I’m here for that more than anything else.
Eyes on Char and Sandhya, Mitchell? Your outfit was basic. #ByeFelicia.

Aliceshortcake and the Green Shore Conundrum
Recently the Absolute Write Bewares, Recommendations & Background Check board has played host to an investigation into a dodgy-seeming “publisher” that popped up on the internet offering a portfolio of (expensive) services to authors in the UK and Irish markets.
Over a couple of weeks, the intrepid aliceshortcake (who started the thread with a very…
