And bad news- they don't split the teams soon

Tenesmus - 29 Mar 2021 16:57:05 (#927 of 952)

Is there anything like this on normal space telly? I get bonus points for finding this sort of thing.

KittyKarateRedux - 29 Mar 2021 17:24:39 (#928 of 952)

Yes I thought the Teams thing was very unfair but missed how they chose their partners, did they know each other prior to the show.

It seemed to be a bit odd - some people clearly knew each other outside the show 'No-Doubt boys' 'dragon princess' 'streetwear ladies'.

I don't know how they matched the rest up, maybe it was like a designer tindr thing or the producers just went "meh, they both went to st martins, that'll do". In theory - they seem to have done the teams so you get a mix of skills in the teams when they matched them up e.g menswear vs womenswear, ideas design versus hands on sewing.

Sadly not that I can think of, it's all sitting on streaming services.

Amazon did one called Making the Cut with Timm and Heidi.Project Runway is on Hayu or something similar

However, I'm totally in for the BBC2 jewellery making thing, as it's my type of thing

foxybrown - 29 Mar 2021 23:17:57 (#930 of 952)

I don't know of the jewellery making thing

KittyKarateRedux - 30 Mar 2021 09:23:28 (#931 of 952)

It's called "All that glitters" and is probably going to be more Sewing Bee than Project Runway in terms of gloss and budget.

It's not on yet, just trailering for starting in 'Spring'. I am worried about the presenter, Katerine Ryan as she does my tits on other shows. Then again, I was mostly wrong about Sarah Cox on Pottery Throwdown, so maybe she'll be ok.

Tenesmus - 30 Mar 2021 09:27:25 (#932 of 952)

They trailered a new Sewing Bee "coming soon".

foxybrown - 30 Mar 2021 22:38:07 (#933 of 952)

Katherine Ryan? sorry count me out. I can't stand her. I can't even attempt

KittyKarateRedux - 06 Apr 2021 15:33:26 (#934 of 952)

I'm excited for the return of Sewing Bee. Even though every show I'm shamed by how slow I am at sewing - there is no way I could make up an outfit in a few hours.

So I've just got as far as episode 7 in Next in Fashion. Shit's getting real now! It was obvious when they split the teams that who would be one of the first eliminated - how on earth was he working in fashion without even basic sewing or fitting skills? I was SHOCKED by how skinny beefy thighed Charles was before he started lifting weights. Though I was very surprised he'd been able to pile on that much beef - his body type looked like it was more suited to the Iggy Pop 'vascular' look.

I didn't get the way the guest judge reacted to the possible elimination in Episode 4 'Streetwear'. I didn't think the look was that good (it felt a bit 80s spandau ballet goes to the thunderdome) but he seemed to like it, at least at a distance. I mean, I know big brands rip off smaller designers (constantly!) but it felt like his feelings about that were causing him to protect the wrong people.

When’s Sewing Bee back? I was just thinking it felt about the right time.

KittyKarateRedux - 06 Apr 2021 15:49:06 (#936 of 952)

14th April I think for Sewing Bee .

DejaLu - 06 Apr 2021 16:32:49 (#937 of 952)

Yay! Thanks

foxybrown - 06 Apr 2021 19:15:46 (#938 of 952)

I think that guy did not want to be the one to throw off the black women, is that the episode you mean? I knew very little names, apart from the winner.

KittyKarateRedux - 07 Apr 2021 11:56:10 (#939 of 952)

Yes - that's the episode I meant. I thought he let his emotions blind him completely. I mean, it wasn't as bad as a thirsty Michael Kors on Project Runway, as at least it was only a guest.

KittyKarateRedux - 15 Apr 2021 11:33:46 (#940 of 952)

Finished Latest in Fashion. I really enjoyed it, in the end, especially once they split the pairs. Shame they aren't doing any more series it seems. I thought the correct person won the final, while the other person's stuff was fine, I just thought the other one took the opportunity to push themselves further than their normal label. So lovely seeing the families show up.

Watched the Jewellry one - meh. They haven't got the format right, should have had 2 or 3 fewer contestants, and did a lot more 'silver smithing for dummies' for the audience. Half the joy of a skills based reality show is for you to develop a blaggers guide to the craft, so you can go "What? Canister damascus without using tip-ex on the inside? Oooh he's asking for trouble" (might have started watching Forged in Fire again). The judges need to unclench a lot, especially Solange. Maybe she was not enjoying having to be around Katherine Ryan, which is totally understandable.

Glow Up returns next week, new host as Stacey is off doing something else. It appears that Ding Dong is back though sadly.

foxybrown - 15 Apr 2021 12:56:33 (#941 of 952)

Yes I liked the winner and the chubby guy that got knocked out in the semi final. It would have been an adequate replacement for Project Runway, I would have put up with the presenters for that.

I had to wonder who Ding Dong was for a moment, yeah she's annoying but so is Stacey so I won't miss her.

No jewellery show for me. As said I can't bear that Canadian woman.

I really dislike a lot of people!

Sorry, I am terrible for names so for me the Glow Up judges are 'Ding Dong' and 'Handlebars'. Stacey just seemed a wrong choice as she never felt particularly glam.

foxybrown - 16 Apr 2021 22:50:53 (#943 of 952)

I don’t know any of their names either! Ding Dong is all she says

foxybrown - 22 Apr 2021 17:47:10 (#944 of 952)

Beginning S3 ep1 now and they've replaced annoying Stacey with annoying Maya, well she annoys me from what I've seen on Instagram.

The contestants are just looking at her like who tf are you?

KittyKarateRedux - 23 Apr 2021 12:49:15 (#945 of 952)

Yes, I was a bit 'Who the fuck is Maya'.

So, other than Maya, Glow Up is very much like previous series - a mix of counter/wedding make-up people, instagram special people who have not done anyone elses makeup and the guys breaking out of the closet.

Some really brilliant looks though. I LOVED Dolli's art deco/afro future look.
