Face Off Season 10 episode 8 has the artists dealing with Smoke & Mirrors. The artists have to turn their beautifully made up model queens/sorceresses into the ‘true’ evil version of herself. They get several styles of witches to choose from. Here’s who the artists selected:
Rob – Dragon Queen
Walter – Emerald Empress
Robert – The Sea Witch (although he names her Darkness of the Sea in Latin)
Melissa – Wiccan of the Woods
Anna – The Shadow Enchantress
Mel – The Temptress of Flame
Yvonne – The Corpse Conjurer
This week Rob is having a freakout, questioning all of his choices. Anna and Melissa are aware of the fact that neither of them have done both a cowl and face sculpt on their own yet in this competition. So we’ve got some time management concerns, even more so than usual.
Anna’s cowl mold is taking too long & she hasn’t started her face piece yet. Robert decides he wants a gelatin eel for his Sea Witch. What Sea Witch doesn’t have a gelatin eel?
Robert also lets the other artists know he summons demons into his sculptures to help him & if he doesn’t do well they will take his soul. They’re all a little punchy.
Mel, Melissa, Walter are the mediocre middle this week, and they’re all fine with that. The judges didn’t think Mel’s piece looked like flames. They had no idea what was going on with Melissa’s character and questioned most of Walter’s color choices. So yay! With feedback like that, the middle is a great place to be this week.
Yvonne and Rob are in the top.
The judges loved how Yvonne managed to keep her model pretty (ok, so maybe this screengrab isn’t the best example of that) while looking like a skin skeleton. Rob got high marks for his back sculpture and color choices.
Robert and Anna are in the bottom.
The judges didn’t like the in-transitionness of Robert’s design. And Anna’s just looked… bad.
Rob ends up winning yet again. He’s our first contestant to win 3 challenges, so right now Rob is the one to beat. There are no guarantees on Face Off, though.
And Anna is sent home. Did you agree with her elimination? Should Robert have gone instead?
