We head for Kathy next. She says they're trying not to be "too literal" by only using the zebra fabric as a belt. DSquared2 wonder if they'll be finished in time. Lady Jumpsuit says she was inspired by the chinchilla being a "little round ball." Because who doesn't want to dress like a little round ball? Great plan, Lady Jumpsuit. DSquared2 don't seem thrilled with her idea, although what exactly they aren't happy with remains a mystery to both Lady Jumpsuit and us. With that, everyone goes home for the night.
The next morning, there are just 9 hours to go. Kevin says that the details of his design are time-consuming. Then he calls them "buhsketti straps." You know, like how you pronounced spaghetti when you were five years old. Is Kevin retarded? Akiko complains that Kevin is breathing down her neck. Mouth-breathing, I'm sure. Kathy, meanwhile, lights a bunch of stupid candles and talks some bullshit about ancestors coming in or whatever. Because that's what your ancestors want to be sucked down from the afterlife for: to watch you compete on a reality show. Merle interviews that she understands the importance of burning sage and getting rid of bad vibes and all, but not when you're in an enclosed space with a bunch of other people and no windows. For real. That shit gives me a headache. I went to a liberal arts college and had a headache for four straight years because of my classmates' need to burn incense all the damn time. Merle stops by Kathy's station and coughs on her while complaining that her eyes are burning. Kathy puts all of her flames out and Kevin interviews that in his experience, smoke means weed party time.
Drama at L. Marilyn's station! Coco "accidentally" sewed something on the wrong side. L. Marilyn is happy to fix it, but Coco gets all flustered because L. Marilyn is using the scissors she needs or something. L. Marilyn's like "whatever." Coco interviews that she's a slow sewer because she's a perfectionist and celebrities wear her clothes. "Anything to do with fashion, I've done it," she says. And probably complained about and tried to quit seven times and said it was ruining your health.
With 4 hours to go, Merle gives us her now-traditional weekly bitchfest about Galina's designs. She says Galina is going "over the top" and it's not Merle. It's not DJ Eric, either.
And then there are 2 hours left and the models arrive for the fitting. Lady Jumpsuit loves her model and plays with her hair, whether the model wants her to or not. Merle tells us that her model was wider in her ass than in her shoulders, so their design didn't look very good on her. Yeah, blame the model. Team Dandy have the same problem with their model and have to cut off the bottom of the outfit to get more fabric.
