And so it begins....(plus the giveaway winner)

Yahoo!  Today feels like the first day of Season 5 of Project Run and Play (even though the competition doesn't officially begin until September 10th).
 
So here's how things are going to work...starting tomorrow we will meet a different Season 5 designer each day for the rest of this week and next.  Until Friday.  Next Friday we have a few more announcements (prizes, news, business items, etc.) and then the contest will officially begin!
*****
Oh, and speaking of announcements...the winner of the Create Kid's Couture Pattern Pack is:
Shirley Ann
who said
"I can already see my girls twirling in Julia's twirly maxi dress!"
 
Congratulations Shirley!  We will be emailing you soon!

One last thing...anyone else following along with this season of Project Runway?
 
This is a strange season....there are people I'm loving (like Sonjia...she is AWESOME...she not only has cool designs but she has great personal style and isn't drama...I totally love her!) and then there are people I'd like to punch.  Who are you rooting for? 
And does Ven scare anyone else beside me?

  1. Ven Ven Ven...the last episode was so uncool Ven. Just saying.

  2. Pretty sure my husband is tired of me complaining about Ven and wanting to just shake some sense into him. Like, seriously? How was he not kicked off?

  3. Ven should have been kicked off just for the way he treated his client. But he also designed something terrible. I would say that he was definitely out. And he's just a one trick pony. I want to see something different from him!

  4. Dmitry, Melissa, and Sonjia are my favorites. I always end up liking the people who are consistent and seem nice. Plus, Dmitry provided my favorite quote of the season, "(Ven) is a one way monkey."

  5. Eh, I don't know if it's just me but I'm not really loving anyone this season. I've been pretty underwhelmed with their creations so far. Usually there is someone who I LOVE and I can't wait to see what they'll do next...this time I'm just not feeling it. And Ven is definitely creepy. ((SHUDDER))

  7. My husband and I are doing a Project Runway retrospective in honor of the 10th season and I have to say I felt the earlier seasons had more talent and less whining overall. The first dress I absolutely went wild over this season was Fabio's winning look for the makeover challenge. Ven completely blew that challenge, in my mind, and his attitude was pathetic. I agree that this season has been rather underwhelming. Maybe they're just warming up.

    Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with on PRP!

  8. This season hasn't caught me as strongly as other seasons. I do like Gunner - his personality at least. I honestly wish they did more 'real' women chalenges. As a curvy girl (and now out of shape curvy girl post two pregnancies and three babies) I feel like 90% of what is designed on the show I could never dream of wearing. The show still has a ways to go, and I am sure someone will start jumping out with some amazing style and a killer attitude to boot ;o)

  9. I keep having to wait 24 hours so I can buy the episodes from YouTube (no free streaming of anything in Korea) and I'm actually enjoying some of the sewing quality this season! Ven is yucky though.

  10. im not loving this season. maybe it is just the time of the year. i am finding it too hard to be inside and watch the episodes during naptime. honestly im just not in love with any of them. i do like sonjia the best and ven...yes, he has to go. too rude for my liking.

  11. I can't decide who my favorite designer is this season, although I have to say that I like Dmitry, Melissa, Sonjia and Christopher. I agree that earlier seasons had more talent and less drama. I hate the drama. gah!

    Does Ven remind anyone of Emilio from Season 7, only with 3 times more arrogance? (Emilio was my pick to win that season.)

    And does Gunner look like Cruella deVille or what? lol

  12. I think Ven actually really hates women. He is a master of draping, however.That Eastern European chick has a very unwearable type of style, very fashion school style! I think Sonja is my fave too. I also like the guy who made that amazing fabric strip dress.

  13. Ven is extremely arrogant and I agree with the last poster - he hates women. Why would he be so nasty to someone? Clearly her figure offended him. Well he would be offended by me too! He won't make it much further in the business after PR. He showed his true colors on TV.

    I like Sonjia, Dmitry and Christopher

  14. I have to admit Ven was one of my faves, until this episode. He was so rude to that women. How many times can you say "all the belts are too small for you" without getting kicked in the shins? His candy dress was amazing, his first dress was amazing and then this last thing - I am no longer a Ven fan. i do love Dmitry :) Just for the way he talks lol (one way monkey), and his accent. If someone is going to come forward and take the lead, they'd better do it pretty quick! So far, there is no clear winner, no talent that outshines the others. Some are very good, but that's not enough. You have to be fierce!!! :)) (sorry, couldn't help it) :)
