I would venture to say that any episode of Project Runway that requires the designers to shop at House of Spandex is bound to be good. I thought Tim was just being funny until they showed the actual name of the store on the window. Love it. Love Tim climbing through the ropes of the wrestling ring. Love designers brainstorming their own diva wrestler names and super powers. Love watching everyone taken out of their comfort zone. Except Chris I guess. Because that's spot on his comfort zone. I wasn't the least bit surprised he did great.
Rami had me the most concerned at the beginning. Especially when they showed him doing his trademark draping of the fabric even on a wrestling outfit. While initially concerned for Jillian she totally impressed me. Despite being way out of her comfort zone she came up with something really cute. And I think I actually kind of liked Ricky's outfit better than Sweet P's. I know Ricky's looked like a swimsuit instead of a costume but at least it didn't look like cheap crap. In the words of my best friend Christian, Sweet P's looked like a first grade craft project. And she didn't seem to have any sort of concept. Except maybe day-glow sparkly.
And of course I loved Christian's. Was there any doubt?
I'm actually trying to decide if last night's episode was my favorite Project Runway episode ever. I especially enjoy things that take the designers out of their comfort zone. Although, I'm also very partial to funny. So anything with Santino impersonating Tim is high on my list. Especially the Tim dining at Red Lobster one. But I also loved when they redesigned the U.S Postal uniform in season 1. And of course anytime they have to make stuff out of weird materials like food or plants. Remember Chloe's leaf dress? Remember when I did something other than watch reality television? Me neither.
