Here’s the usual photoshoot where everyone expects amazing results from, and then we get utter shit as photos. This week, the girls were posing on harnesses above Subaru cars. Sounds like a real nice concept right? Unfortunately, we just get an overly photo shopped photo with cheap dresses and a damn Subaru. The execution of the girls doesn’t help it either. As you can see, the cycle just keeps going downhill in terms of… basically everything actually. I suppose it’s just the crop of girls they made this year? Oh well, let’s start off with…
…Shikin once again! She’s the second girl to take another FCO from me (first one surprisingly being Mau). I really like Shikin’s body in this shot, along with the movement of the dress as well. It overall makes a very dynamic pose. The grace of her left hand makes it feel like she’s causing the wind. Out of all the girls, Shikin just had the best movement of the gown in my opinion. Shikin’s face is really nice too. Although, I would’ve preferred a more serene face with this face, the angry expression works surprisingly well with her body as well. Unfortunately, the dress isn’t doing much justice to her body. Her waist just looks like one big square here. It’s still managing to be the best this week though.
Tu got her second FCO with this photo, and I seriously don’t mind that she did. Considering the fact that this is indeed a good photo. It’s just that my tastes prefer Shikin more. Tu’s body is easily the best this week. The raised leg does seem a bit forced, but it doesn’t detract me from looking at this photo. The position of the arms is really cool too. The tension in her body doesn’t even seem that much. It’s so effortless. The fabric looks really pretty too. I like the way it drops like that. Her face is pretty too, but it’s soooo old. Combine that with the stupid pompadour every girl got this week, and you get a rather unflattering face. I’m happy that Tu gets another photo because this is a deserving of a FCO, even if it isn’t my own personal FCO.
There’s a HUUUGE gap between this and the next 2 photos, so I was very confused with Clara’s 3rd bottom appearance for a photo that isn’t bad at all. This is one of the better photos of Clara that we had in a while. I like the drama behind the photo. Even if Clara forced the movement of the fabric with her left hand, it still looks great. Clara’s profile is surprisingly pretty good with all the emotion she’s bringing into her face. The raised chin is cute too. I’m not a very big fan of her right hand’s gesture. It looks so forced and stiff in general. Plus, it looks like she has a reverse farmer’s tan on her right hand as well. It’s still far from deserving of a bottom 2 appearance.
Like her denim shot, I had this shot dead last in my rankings, but the reason it’s higher is not because I like this shot more, it’s because Cindy’s shot just looks way worse for me now. This is still really bad though. The sorrowing expression is beautiful and dramatic, but I don’t think a Subaru ad should be all about sadness and longing. That’s actually like the opposite of what you’d expect, so it’s just a really random face. Then, we get to her legs. I’m not sure if Maureen’s proportions are just that horrendous, or if they mislabeled her height (5,6 apparently). But yeah, to see this after her stunning shot last week is a major disappointment for basically everyone.
I’m pretty much done with this girl. Outside of 2(?) good shots, she’s had nothing but garbo now. She was actually eliminated for this but was saved (???). I really don’t get why they would have another non elimination. I mean, one non elimination is enough but two? It makes no sense to me. Anyways, what I said about Maureen also applies to Cindy. Except, her expression isn’t about longing or sadness. It just looks like she just saw a murder scene or something. It looks like there’s so much terror in her eyes. Plus, the dress is pretty much swallowing her whole in this shot. I’m still incredibly bothered by the fact that, not only did we have a bad photoshoot, but for no one to be eliminated for this just makes this whole shot so pointless.
