PR: Hissing Viktor and Wacky Fallene
Viktor did the whole Hissing Bitch routine – you know, when someone who’s about as threatening as a makeup sponge narrows their eyes and tells the camera how all the competitors are going to fear them because blahblahblah – but after that, it’s like we never heard from him again. Which isn’t to say he won’t turn out to be the bitch he claims, just that the hissing stopped once he was on deadline.
We thought his rack was full of uber-FIERCE queen clothes, like a Christian Siriano on Red Bull, but he showed some range when the time came for it.
The problem? Well, it’s not really a problem so much because the end result was really great, but if T Lo had been sitting on his shoulders in the workroom, like the little devils/angels we are, we would have warned him that making a dress primarily out of a sheet isn’t going to impress the judges in a challenge like this. That’s why such a pretty, well-made garment never made it into the Top 3. He could have just been aiming to skate by, which isn’t a bad idea this early; in which case using the sheet was a smart way to make something that the judges were sure to notice. We’ll see if he’s as devious as he claims.
We kind of miss Angela, now that we think about it.
… we’ve got nothing to say. She made a dress primarily out of a sheet, just like Viktor did. The problem here is that the dress is poorly made, she used that puking clown when reasonable instincts should have told her not to, and she cut up her pants and made heavy strips that looked hot-glued to the top of the dress. It’s all pretty bad when you look at it for long. It’s just good enough to skate by, but we doubt the judges looked on this with any approval.
