Face Off time! The format of the show changed this week, from teams of two to 'super teams' of four (made up of two teams of two, they didn't split people from their partners). Furthermore, there will be no more immunity, and someone will be eliminated every week from now on.

Super Team Looks! )

Next time, hopefully soon, is witches!
Well, for the millionth time, I'm trying to get re-invested in LJ. I've read all your April entries (all five days of them!) and am going to keep trying. LJ4EVA!

Also, along with about 200,000+ people, I am watching April the Giraffe not give birth (out of the corner of my eye while I work). It's strangely soothing to watch a giraffe, they just seem so chill. I do hope she gets to go outside more often once this baby is finally born (unless she's trolling us all, and there is no baby, which seems possible at this point.) I also keep an eye on the DC Eaglets, which is also soothing. Usually. Pro-tip: Don't put this stream's sound on, then minimize the window, forget it's on, and jump a foot when the eagle shouts at passing blue jays. Fuckers are LOUD.

More Face Off Catching Up! )
So, now that things have calmed down a bit at work, I am going to try to do a big Face Off catch up. But Megan, I hear you saying, why couldn't you do these posts from home? Because I like doing it with two screens, and also Skyrim.

I am also planning to do a post about this event I went to last weekend called ConBust, but I need to get some pictures off my camera first.

Anyway, Face Off Double Post! )
So, my original plan was to combine this episode (not an elimination week) with the next one (an elimination week) and then be all caught up. But then SyFy (CURSE YOU) left the elimination episode off on a CLIFFHANGER without saying who went home, so I'll have to do that with the next two episodes.

Jekyll & Hyde? )
Yikes, I am so far behind with Face Off Posts... I also want to talk some Oscars fashion, but how late is too late to do that?

Anyway, here's Face Off from ages ago!

Yes I'm alone, but I'm alone and free! )

I kind of wish this challenge had happened during a regular season, so we could have seen like, 12 or 14 looks, but whatever. Also, this post is long AF, and I have far more opinions than usual. :D

You know that all the looks are under here, not just top and botom )
GUYS. The Face Off Monster High episode is on TOMORROW, and I am so excited that I'm considering watching it live (rather than then next day off my DVR, sans commercials.).

Anyway, before we get to that, let's wrap up last week's episode (sorry this post is so late) and first elimination!

Much Better than the Dan Brown Book )

Face Off is back! And it's All Stars! And they're in teams!

MacKenzie started the episode by saying the contestants should forget everything they know about Face Off, and I scoffed, but actually it's running quite differently. The designers are working in teams of two; week one, the teams compete for immunity the next week, and week two the judges eliminate an entire team (this way the season is the same number of episodes, but you can totally suck every other week and not go home).

Melissa is back, as is Jasmine, and Adam, and a bunch of other people from past seasons that I like (Emily! Stella! Rachel!) Plus, February 7th they are doing a MONSTER HIGH CHALLENGE. <3 <3 <3

Yay All-Stars! (P.S. I have those same green scale leggings... I'm cool!)

Challenge number one involved a green screen, and it was AWESOME. )
Turns out, I don't really have much to say about Doctor Strange. It was very entertaining (like the Avengers & Iron Man), didn't make me rage about its treatment of women (unlike Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy), and didn't feel pointless (unlike Civil War).

It did often feel like a Star Wars rip off (they even used the phrase 'seduced by the dark'), but not in a bad way. I do have to say though, Ve & Hattrick would not have been here for the shitty makeup on the bad guys:

Seriously, you must have a had a huge budget, you couldn't have made that look less fake? Purple was a bad color choice, and it's soooooo obvious that it's just painted on his (clearly still intact) skin. There was one scene where he teared up, and I legitimately wasn't sure if he was supposed to do that, or if his makeup was just making his eyes water.
This post is much, much later than usual, but I was busy dodging bats and learning complicated card games and doing actual work at work...

Sadly, none of these languages are Elvish or Klingon )
I tried to find something to post about in the last week, but to no avail. So, here we are with the next Face Off recap.

Toyland, Toyland... )

Next week, custom languages and long lost species!
Face Off is back! For those of you new to my journal, Face Off is a show on SyFy that asks makeup artists to meet a challenge each week (similar to Project Runway or America's Next Top Model) and then judges them and eliminates someone. I typically do weekly posts, showing the winning and losing looks, and last season my fav ended up winning. :D

So let us take a look at the first challenge! )
Another season of Face Off is over, and this will be my last post on that subject for a while. So let's see if my bb Nora was able to pull off a win! Going into the second part of this finale, she was in really good shape.

And the winner is... )

What will I post about now?
As stated last week, this is the second to last competition for this season of Face Off. Two designers were eliminated, and the remaining three went on to the finals.

So let's see how it played out!

They're Creepy and They're Kooky... )
This week's challenge had something to do with a SyFy show called The Expanse that debuts in December, but that's not super relevant.

The bottom line was they had to make humans who had evolved to cope with some kind of world-ending disaster scenario.

It's the end of the world as we know it... )
How they made it through this entire episode without a single reference to American Horror Story I will never know.

Step right up! )
Since there are eight designers left on Face Off, this week they picked a challenge with four looks and divided the contestants in half. The four looks were the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

She was beautiful, but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, not up close. )
So, Face Off did this kind of cool thing this week called The Gauntlet, but I'm not sure how that's going to jive with my recap style.

Run The Gauntlet! )

Next week is horsemen of the apocalypse. That should be... interesting.
This episode began with McKenzie explaining that all the parts, even the female ones, were played by men in Shakespeare's day... But she made it seem like this was a huge revelation, not something that everyone and their brother already knows. Seriously, Face Off, give your audience (and contestants) a little credit. Anyway, then she brought out Ve (who did the makeup for Mrs. Doubtfire) to discuss how each designer was going to be assigned a female Shakespeare character and a male model, and they had to make him look female. That was pretty much the whole challenge, which I didn't think was that big of deal, but apparently it was because everyone started freaking out. Maybe because this was another focus challenge, meaning that they only had to do a face, but it had to be flawless?

False face must hide what the false face doth know. )
