Overall, a very strong conclusion to the season. I loved all four "live action comic" type vignettes that were created.
Loved Sam's, but she honestly didn't take Psychadellic far enough and she knew it. She could've had brighter colors and possibly maybe had bits of Kitsch on the Mermaid and Witch to make the sureal aspect work. Still a very valiant effort and as the judges said, she has come a long way from the beginning. She also chose well for her assistants.
Tate's was also very strong, and I thought was going to win. Red Riding Hood and the Wolf were VERY WELL conceived and executed. Less was more in Red Riding Hood, and the wolf was just wow for the time it took. I think he truly was the runner up.
Gage's Hansel and Gretel was very well conceived too - though I don't think he quite got industrial. When I think Industrial I think steam punk and the like, not quite cyborg. Did like the the overall design, and it too showed his advancement and learning from the show as he went further along.
Conor - our winner - also had an excellent design and I can see why the judges picked him over Tate in the end. He understood the mechanics of making a convincing make up both in look and functionality. Again, he created an important aspect of a frog that people know well and it worked well. Plus, the actor was able to make that feature function quite well. The witch too was well conceived - and not your typical witch, and the bark looked real even though it wasn't.
Overall, any of them could've won this competition, and all were deserving. I like the fact the judges actually took this competition seriously as they do their jobs, and they chose an excellent final four and winner. I'm glad they're doing a second season, but the newcomers are going to have some big shoes to fill.
