Time to test the final Five!
|Are you having fun, readers? We sure are in gathering the contestants in different situations and challenges. You can call us sadists or just plain mean but this is the cutthroat business of modeling and you gotta win some and lose some. We are finally with the final five, so are you ready to see them in a new… um… light? :3|
|Looks like Mami and Barnaby might be breathing a sigh of relief for being voted off last week, because they’re free from having to go through the slightly racy GENDERBENT episode. As Kyokai said, such a thing cannot be helped when you’re a model. If you wanna book a job, you have to do what your client says! Before we get down and dirty with some sex-swapping, let’s have our contestants compete in a challenge, shall we?|
EPISODE 04 CHALLENGE
Imagine, if you will, the sketchiest of all malls: dim, flickering lights and store clerks that look like ex-convicts doing their community service. This is the mall that Kyokai, Zabobinator, and Overcooled have dragged the remaining contestants to for their next challenge. Because they’re nice people like that.
Overcooled reveals the envelope, but Kyokai is quick to grab it from her lest anything destructive happens to it yet again. She then reveals this week’s challenge in a clear voice.
“This week, you all have to run around the mall and put together an outfit in 10 minutes,” she explains, “and try to make it original, people! I don’t want to see some variation of what you’re already wearing. Make it a new look for you.” With that out of the way, Zabobinator presses go on her stopwatch, signaling start of the competition. All the models immediately start running, trampling the other shoppers in their wake.
The judges endure 10 loooong minutes of cringing and hoping for the best until all of the contestants manage to make it back to the starting point to have their outfits judged. First up, are the ladies of course.
Stocking is the first to step up, wearing a very impractical but sexy police woman outfit. Quite the change from her usual Lolita style.
“Ohh, very nice, but…where did you find the police officer stuff?” Zabobinator asks in awe. Stocking points proudly to a slutty costume store a few metres away. One of the store clerks (who is clearly, 100% a prostitute in her spare time), waggles her fingers coyly as the group looks over her sketchy outlet. Still, it’s impressive that Stocking could get an outfit from a store called “DAT ASS, DAT COSTUME” and work it.
Senjougahara is the next to step out, and seems to instantly outdo Stocking in her smart, functional businesswoman outfit. She even has some glasses to match, sure to make those megane-lovers drool. Kyokai nods in approval and Senjougahara turns around and struts away, revealing the “I <3 ARARAGI” endearingly embroidered on the butt of her pants in an outrageous shade of hot pink. There is a pause, while Kyokai clears her throat. And then –
“PASS,” the three judges say in unison.
As for Nino, it took the crew about an hour to find her. She hadn’t found an outfit, but she had managed to befriend every animal in the pet store. Security managed to pry her away from the fish tank so the competition could continue. Saeko turns up with a gawdy net-thing that’s looked down upon by the judges, while Sawako comes back with a cute one-piece.
The guys are worse than the girls by far, exemplified by Gintoki prancing out in front of the judges in full “gangsta” attire. It’s clear that he just walked into Nike, grabbed a bunch of clothes and a pair of shoes, and walked out. To top it off, he pulls out a basketball from behind his back and starts trying to pull off some fancy moves. Just as he tries to dash forward, he trips over his own baggy, low-riding pants and falls flat on his face. In slow motion. To “I Believe I Can Fly” playing in the background.
Date Maamune takes advantage of this, exclaiming “Ah-ha! Perfect!” in his flawless Engrish, robbing Gintoki of his bling. Apparently, this bling is the final touch on his ultimate outfit which consists of, but is not limited to, a Hawaiian shirt, tights, shorts, a beanie, a fanny pack, bras (multiple ones, worn like armour pads), and boots. It appears that it will take some time before he catches up on how the trends have changed from the Sengoku era…
Rin struts in with a rainbow of colours from unmatching shoes to three types of scarves wound around his neck, with gelled up hair and a enough bling to make chin-chin sound. While judges exasperatedly sigh, Natsume shows up in an overflowing robe and a fancy mask. Judges are pretty sure, it must be a gift from his invisible friends but now is not the time to recycle old looks.
By now all the judges are practically blinded by the horrible outfits, until a certain butler steps forwards. Confident and composed, he’s quick to explain how he put together his casual look of a scarf, jacket and shirt. It really does suit him. Loving fashion done RIGHT, Overcooled is quick to pipe up and ask where he got his clothes.
“Macy’s.” He says with a gleam in his eye, “A butler must hunt for bargains!” with a flash of light, he reveals 10 coupons in each hand, wielding them like he would his knives and forks.
“Let’s not forget haggling, too,” he adds with a wink, showing off his persuasion skills.
“Ah, demon skills certainly can be used for…” Overcooled pauses to think, “…a variety of things…”
The judges have a brief discussion about who should win, all nodding in agreement once they decide.
|There you have it! Sebby and Stocking have won over the judges for this week’s challenge. Now for the photoshoot. Queen (King?) of Traps, Ness, did an excellent job preparing this week’s shoot with a topic very close to her heart…crossdressing. I think most of these photos speak for themselves. Enjoy the shoot and don’t forget to VOTE for your favourite!|

If you are thinking if some of the above contestants got surgeries done to acquire boobage and junk; worry not. It was just clever makeup and props supplied from Metanorn dungeons, where you can find almost everything if you just look for it. :3 Remember to vote as per the current theme of gender-bending.
