Runway Week 6: Rainbow Connection

Welcome, welcome, one and all to this, our final week of ENTM Runway Cycle. It has been an incredible journey, and I am so proud of all of our models for their creativity, sportsmanship, receptiveness, and, of course, tenacity. You have all done well over these past five weeks, but this right here is the final test of your skill as a model, fashion icon, and /gposer.

At least this time around.

I do believe it was the great American philosopher, Kermit the Frog, who said “I guess I was wrong when I said I never promised anyone. I promised me.” You’ve done yourself proud, and I cannot wait to see where your vision takes you next.

It was also this same philosopher who wondered why there are so many songs about rainbows, and what is on the other side. He spoke of rainbows as visions, but only illusions. But he went on to say that they have nothing to hide. Well, honey, this week our technicolour twelve has absolutely nothing to hide as vibrant visions here to illustrate those illusions. Come take a wish on the morning star with me, and watch as our models bend light itself to bring Mr. Roy G. Biv to life.

You don’t have to look any further to find the rainbow connection; we’ve got it right here, baby. Now, an important note, our models were tasked to represent each of the seven colours of the rainbow in their look. Hair and make-up were optional canvases for helping to complete their look, and fulfill criteria. Now then, get out there and vote, because we can’t do it without the lovers, the dreamers, or you. And may the best model… win!

Didja evah wonder who this week’s winner is? Don’t fret! Congratulations to the winner of Week Five: Read to Filth…

Djevh’a Frehtj!

Once again another week where community voting has been critical in determining a winner. Djevh’a, you read the house down in this noble ensemble. And by the house I mean The House, kicking off a dance-off in a cathedral in those brown leather boots. You have a knack for pulling together a great look, and it really shows here in a fun take on an otherwise serious style. Excellent job pairing the right look against a backdrop that really compliments your style. Well done.

Now then, my ocular one-two, you were asked to quiet down in the library, but no more! The library is closed! OFFICIALLY! There is still time to grab top honours, and show them all that you came to slay. Next week is our final week! Whether you win or lose, it’s all about the journey.

Now then. Let the music play!

Runway Week 5: Read to Filth

In the great tradition of Paris is Burning get your library cards, because the library is open, darling! Welcome, one and all, to another fabulous week of ENTM’s Runway Cycle. This week our models were challenged to take a few key ingredients: a pair of glasses, a bottle of red dye, and a bottle of brown dye, and see what they can come up with. Head to toe ready to read the house down boots yes gawd tongue pop and other drag queen references. In all seriousness, please keep it down, because our models have spent some serious time studying up this week to bring you their interpretation of these three specific elements. So, get ready, because reading is what? Fundamental!

Remember, the only criteria this week was to wear a pair of glasses, wear something in red, and wear something in brown, and all three pieces must be separate. So, which of our models pulled off the most novel of ideas? Who read the house down? Let us know, and vote! And may the best model… win!

R U ready for the winner of Week Four: Red Carpet Realness?

Rusoka Ulasirri!

Representing the true master race, Rusoka had the press’ full attention in this blue velvet gown. She took us to the director’s cut with this classic take delivered in full technicolor. She is indeed here to thank the academy, and, no, you will not be playing her off in the middle of her acceptance speech.

Now my starlets, whether you won top honours, had to settle for Best Supporting, or were simply in attendance for the publicity, you were all a box office smash and I cannot wait for the sequel. It’s always showtime.

Now then. Let the music play!

Runway Week 4: Red Carpet Realness

Lights! Camera! FASHION! Welcome once again to another exciting installment of ENTM’s Runway Cycle. Our divalicious dozen are ready for their close-up this week, Mr. DeMille, as they glide down the red carpet in some of the finest couture this side of the velvet rope. We reeled in our models to give us a premiere of their own byshowing us how they would attend a red carpet premiere. Well, our models gave us the director’s cut as they dressed to the tens, because the nines simply weren’t enough. From Hollywood to Cannes and beyond our models knew it was universally paramount to show us how much of a 20th century fox they could be. Simply a golden opportunity to be MGM grand, don’t you think?

Now then, who would you like to thank the academy for? Let us know who your nominees are by voting! And may the best model… win!

And the winner of Week Three: Crystal Makeover ain’t messin’ around…

Katarh Mest!

Our resident hostess with the Mest-est slashed and slayed her way to the top with this flirty saccharine take on what life would be like if she weren’t a strong independent woman that don’t need no man. This fakeover is so OVAH it all that our judges could barely believe this is the same gal that we’ve seen time and time again. Amazing job showing us this … let’s just say this other shard of yourself.

My gems, this has all been outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous. You’ve all done a wonderful job showing off what isn’t, now let us get back to seeing you all glitter like the true jewels you are. This masquerade may be over, but your true colours are just starting to shine; this is still anyone’s game!

Now then, let the music play!

Runway Week 3: Crystal Makeover

Welcome, once again, to another exciting week of ENTM’s Runway Cycle. This week we asked our models to travel through the looking glass, show us their true colours, and then pull a switch. Reverse it, bamboozle us, indulge in what isn’t for a change. Our models are complete fakeovers this week, showing us that inner beauty can only go so far, that sometimes you just need to show off someone else. In ENTM tradition they’ve undergone the Crystal Makeover, where we ask our models to do two things: incorporate the lesser-used makeover style, the stripe across the eyes, and show us what they’d look like as their opposite. It’s a wild mirror world this week, folks, so look, and look again, because things are not always what they seem.

Now then, who turned you upside down, spun you round and round? Let us know which of these impostors you enjoyed the most by voting! And may the best model… win!

And the winner of Week Two: Steampunk Realness ain’t lyin’…

Tattl Tael!

Our victor Victorian left us breathless, serving legs for days, and looking positively industrious with just the right pops of colour to break up the cool browns and brasses of the ensemble. Keep up the excellent work my little jinglyshinies. Tattl may have had the wings of time this round, but don’t lose your steam. This week moreso than ever showed the impact our community has on the voting. Next week is anyone’s to win!

Now then. Let the music play!
