Well, it's been all over SyFy, so I'm sure it is not a surprise that there are 16 contestants this season, the most ever. With eight prior contestants and eight newbies, it's being billed as "The Vets vs. The Rookies."
Well, no, let's just wait and see if that is what they are saying. Why don't you go look for Sandro?
Lyma got into this line of work through the world of dentistry. The way she explains it makes sense, but her portfolio shots do not show any unique teeth work.
I had, sniff, no idea.
It's a Foundation Challenge, woo-hoo! They are to use the Cosplay show as inspiration and create an original character that shows their own point of view. The winner gets immunity for the Spotlight (main) challenge. Judging is Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight.)
One might think that those with the longer time shown would be top & bottom, but every one of the following had a fairly good to great review, except for Rick.
Catherine loves the eyebrows.
I'm almost seeing Detox, that's always a good thing.
He looks like a cartoon on the editorial page.
Catherine praises the air brushing.
Adolfo's model uses too much Palmolive, or something.
He needed to age the hands to match the face.
Lyma receives praise for her Hindu bride.
Laney's elf ears peeking through a Marie Antoinette
wig get high marks from Catherine.
Rick's tribal look is the only one where we hear out and out disdain.
Too simplistic, too rudimentary.
In the work room, the rookie team thinks the veteran team's sculpture work is bigger and better. Or maybe Rick is easily intimidated? Adolfo and Lyma are working on their characters solo, and Lyma is concerned about that.
Funny, when I see their ogre, Eddie & Tolin are making me think of
Over with the returning artists, Michael loves that Laura is using fingers not just spikes on her witch back. He is concerned that Roy's wood-like horns will bounce too much. Alana and Miranda are told how to put hair onto the sculpt of their Pixie. Wait, no looking at the other four vets?
Later on Roy and Adolfo are buggin' over their individual molds cracking. On day 3, Sam and Scott are fighting over their paint work. Some people look like they finished, some could use a few more hours.
How did they do? Let's take a look.
Ogre • Frank, RJ & Eric
Faun • Roy
Troll • Tate
Pixie • Alana & Miranda
Witch • Laura
Ogre • Eddie & Tolin
Faun • Laney & Rick
Troll • Adolfo
Pixie • Lyma
Witch • Sam & Scott
Glenn praises Alana & Miranda on their pixie. Eddie & Tolin's proportions are off. Tolin seems to not see any of the problems. Neville says it is substandard. Frank, RJ & Eric's work on their troll is out of balance. The individual pieces that they made (feet, hands, face) are alright, but that's all it seems to be, the main body of the poor guy seems to be complete missing. Laney & Rick's work is praised. They're impressed with Laney's design, decision making, and paint job. Neville sees that Adolfo's work on the troll is lacking. Ve says the eternal, "Do a good paint job!" The judges always want the paint job to be top notch, even at the expense of the sculpting work. Glenn likes the fresh take on Laura's work. Ve dislikes the face paint, but likes the body work.
Bottom three are Tolin, Eddie and Adolfo.
Tolin is the first to be eliminated, placing 16th for the season.
