Heidi announces that this is the final challenge of the season and that of the five designers still standing, two will be eliminated. She declares that the designers are taking one last field trip and instructs them to meet me at Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street. Thus ensued lots of "Where are we going?" speculation. Didn't any of them know that this is the address of the Metropolitan Museum of Art? I was absolutely ecstatic about meeting the designers there, because the Met is a major NYC obsession of mine and I was thrilled to share it. The Met is a treasure trove of masterpieces with something for everyone, and that's a massive understatement: 5,000 years of art and artifacts! I'm at the Met all the time; it's my church. Imagine my thrill for all of us when I learned that we would have access to this great institution before opening hours. Wow!
I greet the designers on the front steps of the Met and we enter. Their challenge: Choose a work of art to serve as the inspiration of a look of their choice. They have three destinations: the Greek and Roman Sculpture courtyard, the European Painting wing, and the Temple of Dendur. And we have a mere 45 minutes for all three! Any one of these destinations could consume days! Thankfully, the designers were presented with cameras to record their inspirations.
That sounds so cool, I think I saw that episode. ^_^ I get distracted though just looking at the stuff LOL.
Off topic but oh well, you guys should do a Gothic Lolita challange, or Visual Kei, those are suprisingly challanging.
Gothic Lolita is all about doll like looks and an innocence and there are many subcategories to them. Check out Mana(he invented the style).
Visual Kei is all about mixing styles and colors and patterns but still making a uniform whole, and there's no such thing as gender in Visual Kei, the contestents would have to like, choose a randome male or female model out of a bag. ^_^
I totally agree with Cinward you guys should do a gothic Lolita challenge.
Ever since I was about 10 I've wanted one of those dresses so badly, but my parents don't have the money for one and I don't have the skill to make one.
The best I can do is to draw pictures of them. Most of them turn out pretty good.
