Project Project Runway Challenge 2 – Unconventional Movie Nite!

Welcome to season 13 of Project Runway and a new season of Project Project Runway! If you want to join in the fun this season get all the details here. Let’s jump right in…

Challenge – Unconventional Movie Nite!
Use movie and movie experience items to create a movie inspired look. This included ideas found in a concession stand plus those used by people who make movies in things like the lighting, costume, and props departments. (The items on the show included things like rope, colored tape, plastic flowers, chain, hard hats, colored plastic sheets, marquee letters, candy, straws, popcorn containers, scripts, CDs, colored wire and 3D glasses.) Remember the judges do not react well to using supplies that are too close to actual fabric. Also don’t make anything that looks to costumey!

Time Limit – You have 12 hours for this challenge.

Accessories – Choose your accessories from the Aldo Accessory Wall.

Runway Day – Runway day is Thursday, August 2nd.
Just a reminder only in-progress photos should be posted to the Flickr group before Runway Day. Save the big reveal for next Thursday. Please tag your photos with PPR13 and ProjectProjectRunway.
Ok, let’s talk about this episode a little bit (there maybe spoilers ahead). Despite what Tim and Heidi said, I thought this was one of the worst unconventional materials runways I’ve ever seen. Almost everything looked heavy and like what it was made from. The straw dress that Tim was raving about in the work room just stuck out from the models body, she couldn’t even put her arms down. When the winning collection came out I thought for sure it was the losing collection, maybe it looked a lot better in person? I also have to wonder if Angela’s pieces look a lot worse in person, because it didn’t look as bad as everyone said to me (that girls is going to have a breakdown). As for the losers, they were just bad in a sea of bad. Having all the same dress didn’t hurt them, but it wasn’t surprising since Hernan really directed the design of all of them. (I went back and looked at his dress from last week and it was in the same line as well.) I sort of felt he should have gone home because of that, but I guess maybe Carrie was off for not standing up for her design in the workroom. I hope these designers start showing us something great soon.

    • I have only just watched the episode but I actually quite enjoyed the runway. I didn’t like many of the looks in the workroom but there were several that I thought came over well on the models. Amanda’s was not one of them though. I have no idea what the judges are thinking this season.

      I did think the bottom three deserved to be there and I would have sent both Carrie and Hernan home (they are such teases when they say ‘at least one of you will be out’). Hernan because he really was intractable and a nightmare to work with. Carrie because her dress was awful. I think Sandhya would have been better off sticking with her original design but she was in a difficult situation with immunity and I can see why she went along with the others.

      • I just felt like this runway wasn’t as creative as those in past unconventional challenges. Though after doing it myself I think a lot of it was the theme.

        I think there is a redemption story being pushed for Amanda since she came back & had never won on her own season. I don’t know if that will take her to the final, but I think it is a narrative they are pushing.

        I think Hernan sew boring dresses (so far) and thinks he’s better than he is. It seems the judges love Sandhya’s work (other than this week) and the other designers don’t get it. If you were smart you would have seem that week one & let her lead the challenge. Though I’m betting the designers didn’t see each others auditions so don’t know how much the judges do like her.
