Great final episode, and with results I, once again, can totally get behind.
Despite the wear-and-tear of the dancing, I had Rayce >> Ian > RJ.
As much as I like RJ, I did not care a bit for his team's work. Why ? It seemed too... cartoonish, for lack of a better word. I mean... the sculpt job on the faces was broad, and the paint job, especially on Mother Earth, was very bodypainting 101 : pretty, but not believable as a creature's/entity's skin. In short, it looked like make-up. Also, I LMAO when Beki started taking charge of the team under the cover of motivating RJ. Of course she would do so.
Ian's design was interesting, but the paint job did him in. Also, I gotta say his ideas didn't really work for me when introduced on stage... but as soon as they started dancing, and did the "hellhounds on a leash/breaking their chains" routine, it suddenly clicked, visually.
As for Rayce's, as usual, strong visual identity/concept, and more than solid sculpt/make-up.
Glad to see some past contestants in the crowd during presentation, even though I would have prefered the crowd to be present for the big finish.
Season 3 in the summer, you say ? Bring back some past contestants/winners here and there, for a challenge, special help in the shop or a guest judge spot.
