Anthony jokingly asks Mila if she will be color blocking the pain. She replies, "Color blocking, take me away." I like this. This is a sign of exhaustion and too much time spent together. That joke is absurd and doesn't make a ton of sense (pain doesn't have a color and color blocking is not a thing that can do something like take you away). Nothing but awesome can come from the designers moving in that direction. I love Pokemon. Mila interviews that she hopes the judges don't get tired of her signature black and white blocks.
The workroom is really noisy and it's driving Emilio crazy. Jesse has run into trouble. The material that he thought would be sort of gauze-like is actually scotch tape-like. That's what you get for trying to buy, essentially, fabric at the hardware store. Innovation, Jesse!
Jay tells us a little about himself. He says that his parents would be really proud of him if he won Project Runway. He was the fifth of six children and recalls that they always fought for everything they wanted in life. He cries starting right at "fought." I don't know if they just liked to fight or if there were extenuating circumstances. I'm guessing on circumstances. He says that the fight in him is a big part of who he is as a person and a competitor.
Anthony sees that some people are finding ways to sew their garments with the sewing machines, so he tries it. He gives a visual of how his dress got mangled in the machine. He believes that the materials that they are using for the challenge are beginning to control him. He mutters to himself that he spent $45 on a roll of duct tape and it doesn't stick to anything. God, that's gotta be a nightmare. Maya is hoping that she can sew through the cord that she bought. It looks like she's successful.
Tim comes in and says that it looks like they're working with armor. He starts his consultations with Mila. Tim wonders if the garment will sit on the model's hip. For her accessory, she's going to make a wide cuff with these little plastic plaque things. She liked that there was text on them.
Jesse says that his garment is supposed to be Elizabethan. "Elizabethan mini?" asks Tim because Jesse's sketch is of a short dress. Methinks someone is trying to impress Tim with fancy words that have nothing to do with his actual garment. Tim says that Jesse's look is feeling really "school play." And, he's not thinking the university level or even high school. It looks like elementary school. Ouch. For his accessory, Jesse says he's going to try a weird Dior hat thing. Tim warns him against being too costume-y.
Emilio says that he's creating an "intergalactic, macramé, flapper, something." Tim asks Emilio if he's making a dress or a bikini. Emilio says that he's making a bikini, but Tim's not buying it. Tim tells Anthony that his dress looks tortured. He interviews that he's going to start over with the skirt and make something less tortured.
Tim wonders where Jay got leather at the hardware store. He tells him that they are made of garbage bags and Tim is fairly stunned. In fact, he says that, had he seen Jay with the bags, he would have warned him against using them. He thinks that the pants are spectacular. Jay tells him that he's having a problem with the material shrinking, which Tim confirms as a huge problem. For his accessory, Jay thinks he'll make a belt and Tim reminds him that it's important and shouldn't be left to the last minute.
Tim says that Maya's necklace is stunning. She explains that she's making a dress of screening material. He tells her that, if she pulls it off, it will be spectacular. Before Tim leaves, he tells everyone that they have a lot of work to do. I'm assuming they already know that, but way to ratchet up the tension. We could get more funny from that! He sends the models in for a fitting.
