Back at Parson's, they all scramble to get to work. Chris remarks that they have very little time to complete the challenge. Victorya is excited about her dress/vest combo; she thinks that it really fits the Bitten girl. Rami wants to create something loose that will flatter many body types. Marion is excited about this challenge and thinks it's a chance to prove himself. Steven thinks the design is intriguing, but he's worried that it's too complicated.
Now we come to Elisa and Sweet P, and Elisa wants to use Sweet P as the dress form. There's some plinkety-plunkety keyboard music to make sure that we know Elisa's acting real wacky right now. She's making a cape and the polymorphic dress. Elisa interviews that she knew she and Sweet P would have very different aesthetics. Then Elisa uses her spit to mark a spot on the fabric. Sweet P seems really freaked out by this. The mannequins are like, "People pin shit into us all the time. We'd love to try spit for a while." Sweet P inquires about the spit method as if Elisa is crazy, and it looks like Elisa takes a little offense. She says that she likes to "imbibe" the garment with "energy and essence," and that's how she marks it. I think she meant "imbue," but I get it. Sweet P interviews that she is from Earth, but Elisa is from some "happy planet." I would think a woman who goes by "Sweet P" and has tons of tattoos and a diamond piercing in her lip might possibly be sensitive to unfair judgments. I would be wrong!
With six and a half hours to go, everybody's rocking and rolling. Kit says that SJP's involvement in this challenge makes it really special and important. Ricky cries. He hopes that his work will make him appear to be more than a lingerie designer. We see him bossing Jack around.
Tim enters to advise. He starts with Marion. He thinks they have a lot of work to do, because the design is so elaborate. Steven is creepy, giggling in agreement. He interviews that he has "a mountain of work to do."
Tim steps over to Christian and Carmen. The two designers think they're doing great work. Tim asks them to make sure they're designing for 2007 -- they don't want a design that's too retro. Christian breathily announces, "I think it's perfect." He interviews that he takes everyone's "opinion to heart" but he doesn't always agree or follow their advice. I haven't really seen him take anyone's advice yet. Maybe that's good for him, though. He thinks his design is hot, and he's staying the course.
