Need something cool to do during these dog days of summer? Why not fetch a seat by the TV and join us as we chat about tonight's episode of Project Runway? Sit! Stay! Good job!
The show starts on 9 Eastern on Lifetime, and the chat party happens in the comments below. Here are a few highlights from the one we held here last week:
- According to an informal poll conducted by Lizawithazee, recent fashion trends we hate include rompers on adults, jumpsuits, flowy patterned pants and see-through fashions with attached granny panties. Trends we love include braided hair and high-waisted shorts. Note that there were exactly four respondents to this poll, so by my calculation it has a margin of error of 46.4%
- We added another drinking-game word, courtesy of WIncredulous: "costumey."
- Continuing a trend, the best nicknames we came up with — "J-Pop America Fun Time" and "Carrie On My Wayward Designer" — were for the contestant who wound up getting eliminated. Lay your weary blue-haired head to rest, Carrie. Don't you cry no more.
I've collected a few of my favorite commenter quips from last week here. As for this week: Tonight's challenge will be to create a new look for the future inspired by an event from the designer's past. If I were competing, I'd use the time I accidentally ate cat food as inspiration for a look based on a future in which humans have evolved into giant cats. In fact, Heidi's already designed that look, now that I think about it.
See you cats in the comments!
