Chicago's Terri Stevens designed this samurai spectacular for her drag queen.

Why can't our Terri get some love on "Project Runway"? Thus far on the season, Terri Stevens from Chicago is always the bridesmaid, never immune.

And by the stone-faced shots in the green room after the runway, hoo boy, looks like she can't believe it, either.

If her eyes had shot anymore daggers, Joe wouldn't need pins for the rest of the season.

He appeared first in full Wagnerian splendor -- an enormous horned cap over a blonde Heidi wig, plus disco balls for a bra -- and then helped Tim critique the work. And that was it. (At least he's blogging.) The guest judge, more (as Blayne would say) dragaliciousness: RuPaul, self-proclaimed supermodel of the world. Whatever happened to...?
