They get to sketch while sitting in the theatre, which Austin finds really inspiring. Mondo says that everyone thinks of Broadway as Broadway with fringe and stuff, but it's actually hard. Is it? Do they? I know it's probably not his intention, but I find that so patronizing. Does anyone sit around thinking that stage costume design is like, "You know what, just slap some fringe on it -- it's BROADWAY! God, this is easy." Michael tells us that he tosses a few of his original ideas and settles on a skirt and a top.
At Mood, Austin decides on a brocade that will read wealth. Kara wants to make a fur stole accentuated by a bold color. Mondo looks for stuff that will pop. Austin interviews that he loves Kara because she's so dramatic -- one minute she'll be doing an interpretive dance and the next she'll be sobbing. Lady Mila Killjoy informs everyone that their time is up. It's on to the workroom.
Kenley is still wearing her curlers. Oh dear, I didn't realize that. She tells Austin that she has got to get them out of her hair, but Mondo tells her that she'll be wearing them all day. She disagrees. Kenley, with very tight curls, tells us that she a jacket is her signature piece. Jerell says that lame` is the primary fabric in his design. Kara is trying to work with clean lines and a simple chic aesthetic. Kenley tells everyone that Kara is done with her design and everyone agrees that it's beautiful. Then, Kenley and Kara dance around the workroom. Mila interviews that she has noticed this overpraising of the designs of others and it's really big with Kara and Kenley. Jesus. Can you believe that? I'm all for authenticity but she is such a hater! People can't appreciate each other? Whatever. She says that she's afraid that when one of those girls is eliminated, the other will have some sort of meltdown or something.
