Bitch Slap That Bitch
After last week's goodbye to Gunnar, we're down to 7 designers!

This week the designers are sent to Radio City Music Hall and before we see a single kick ball change, we all know they'll be designing for the Rockettes. Tim Gunn explains the specifics: a new costume for the Rockettes that can be worn year-round and that is practical and modern. The winning design will actually be produced and worn by the Rockettes!
Folks get your bitch- slapping hand ready, it's the costume challenge episode!!! This is one bitch of a challenge. The designers who can successfully bitch slap that bitch will make it through, and those that become the bitches of their designs will be slapped with whole world of bitchiness from the judges. Why? Because having fashion designers make costumes is like casting Ashton Kutcher in a Holocaust movie. It makes absolutely no sense, but is sure to be entertaining for all the wrong reasons. Already I'm expecting big things from Michael Kors during judging. I hope he doesn't disappoint!
To make matters worse, the designers are only given $250 for this challenge. This doesn't go very far at Mood, where sequined fabrics can run around $300/yard, so the designers are really strapped with a lot of tacky fabrics and chintzy rhinestones. No Swarovksy crystals here, folks!
Back in the workroom, the theme of this week is clearly second chances:

Andrea and Kooan were mere target practice for the under-challenged Christopher. It's a shame they had to go, really. But now Christopher is free to be the show's one and only young sassy gay archetype, which is all he ever wanted. He doesn't waste any time with his "I'm dying!" and cross-dressing and jazz hands and red head-worshipping. It's only a matter of time before he slaps us all with a catchphrase (he just needs another week to narrow down his current list of 33 possibilities). And just like that, the perfect crime goes unnoticed. Well played, Christpher Soze.

Who bitch slapped that bitch? Let's get on to the runway to find out!
Sweet Justice, the Wicked Witch is dead! For those of you who were Ven fans, may I suggest playing a little Elton John in his memory? "Goodbye Origami Rose" (sung to the England's Rose rendition of Candle in the Wind).
Next week the contestants have to make designs for Heidi's baby clothing line. Who tries to make "diaper exposure" a thing? We'll all have to wait until next week!
