After the show, Tim gives them a half-hour to sketch while they're still in the tent. He reminds them that it's harder to create fashion inspired by the circus than it is to create costumes. They need to think FASHION. Emilio says that he noticed that the circus used a lot of stripes and polka dots and scale was manipulated a lot. He also noticed the colors black, white and cranberry. Emilio has experience working with circus clothing, from his time in the theatre. That's going to set him apart, so says he. Mila is inspired by the ringmaster's coat and bold personality. Anthony was inspired by the grayish blue worn by the acrobat. Jay was inspired by the exaggerated appearance of the clowns. Seth Aaron is worried about going over the top.
On to Mood, where Seth Aaron muses about being thisclose to Bryant Park. Emilio goes hunting for stripes. Tim tells Anthony to "turn up the volume." They really think Anthony isn't loud enough. Anthony interviews that he feels he is destined for Bryant Park, otherwise, he wouldn't be there. Hold off on that prediction, Anthony. It seriously looks like Mila won't get her shopping done.
They make it back to the workroom where Tim Gunn tells them that they'll have two days for the challenge. The cheer so loudly that Tim seems a little scared. Mila is excited for an extra day to work, as it allows her to up the level of difficulty in her design. Seth Aaron tells us that he loves his sketch. So, he plans on designing what is in his sketch. I'm not exactly sure why that's important to tell. Anthony notices that his color palette for this challenge is much different than the other designers. He hopes that his look will be good enough to get him to Bryant Park.
And, Emilio. Emilio, who is being treated to a late in the season villain edit. He says that this is the one challenge where everyone needs to put everything they've got on display. "Come hard or go home," he demands of himself and his fellow designers. Then, he says there are no second chances, which we all know from last week is not true. As he's working, he says that he came to this show with but one purpose, to win. And, he's not going to be shy about it. Mila, not looking up from her work, agrees with him that he's not shy. He asks her if she means something by that. She says with a smile that he frequently mentions that he came there to win. There's no better response than that. Just found a favorite Mila moment of the season, though I'm not entirely sure there were other contenders. Emilio laughs at her comment. Mila interviews that Emilio is quite confident because he has won so many challenges. Then, with Anthony listening, he says semi-under his breath that his look is going to be a showstopper. He adds that he would like for people to pee on themselves when they see his outfit. He should have his fashion show at a nursing home.
