It's been a long time since we did the initial run of Paper Runway--is there anyone out there interested in trying another round?
The winner for challenge #7 was too close to call, as I only received two votes. I also only received one design for challenge #8.

The DesignCollapse )

Which leads me to a difficult question: should the contest continue in the current format? Or would it be better to simply have free posting of designs and have people give feedback on them, with no winners? I know that part of the downfall of this competition is due to my inability to keep up with posting, and when I continue this challenge for next season I will have a more concrete and manageable format. But I wonder if this season is salvageable.

So please vote and let me know what you think! My decision rests on those of you who are still paying attention.

Challenge #8: Double 0 Fashion

Challenge #8: Double 0 Fashion
Design a multi-piece look inspired by the twenties, thirties, or forties.

Here are your questions for the week:

What decade did you select and why?
Where do you see your model going in this outfit?
What materials did you use?


No one will be eliminated this week. However, if you do not compete, you will have to use one of your passes or, if you are out of passes, you will be eliminated.

The winners of challenge #6 (ewenicorn) and #7 (to be posted tomorrow after midnight) may choose to abstain from this week's challenge without using a pass.

You have until Tuesday at 10pm PST to complete your design. Good luck!

Challenge #7 Designs

Omg, so I'm such an idiot. I never posted the results for challenge #6. Because of this, no one will get eliminated, even those who didn't participate, since I never said who had immunity.

The winner of last week's challenge was ewenicorn! You will have immunity for next week along with whoever wins this week.

Here are the designs for this week's challenge. I also realized I did not post questions. My brain is somewhere over there. I promise I'll find it.

You have 24 hours to score. Comments are screened.

Results for Challenge #5

Sorry this is so late, guys.

The winner for this challenge is ewenicorn! Congratulations, you now have immunity for the next challenge. This means that you may choose to abstain from next week's challenge without using a pass.

The lowest score was horriblematzo. However, there will be no elimination this week.

Here are some comments on the designs for this week's challenge.

saxykwajgirl

"The design is pretty functional, which suits the character's job, and I like the use of bright colors."

"The fabrics and colors are great. But it needs pockets if it's to be a nurse's uniform."

horriblematzo

"I'm not crazy about the combination of colors, although the ensemble does look fairly bohemian."

"I like your concept and this seems like something that character would wear but the finished product looks a little sloppy and the colors are odd."

ewenicorn

"This is something I can see Judy wearing but it is also modern. I love the bright colors and glitter!"

"This is just darling, and I give major snaps for such a clever choice of character. :-)"

Stay tuned for this week's challenge in about two minutes!
