* {{Planimal}}: The "Dangerous Beauty" and "Film/Hunger Games "''Film/HungerGames'' predator" challenge.



* WrongGenreSavvy: A lot of challenges have involved taking a sweet theme and make it [[{{Grimmification}} darker]]. Which is exactly what several contestants did in season 5's Mother Goose challenge. Unfortunately for them, they were supposed to make ''whimsical'' characters, not scary or grotesque ones.

** In general, many of the contestants have backgrounds in horror-themed makeups and have difficulty breaking out of that skillset when asked to do something LighterAndSofter.

Added DiffLines:

** "All that glitters" from season 9 had the artist having to change male models into female Shakespeare characters, just like it how it was in Shakespeare's time.


Added DiffLines:

* IncongruouslyDressedZombie: The mob of extras made up as zombies as a foundation challenge on season 4 were mostly dressed in everyday street clothes, but a couple of the men wore surgical scrubs, one of the women had on a ragged wedding dress, and a chef's hat is visible in one of the group shots. Contestants regularly dress their own undead creations in odd outfits for spotlight challenges, to make the finished products distinctive and capture the judges' interest. This can also overlap with JacobMarleyApparel, particularly in the "Surprise of the Century", " The Dancing Dead", "Death's Doorstep", "Alice in Zombieland" and " The Laughing Dead" challenges.

Added DiffLines:

** Joe from Season 3, despite only appearing the first episode, was a complete jerk to his partner Tommy. Not only did he prevent him from contributing his ideas to the design of their character, but went as far as degrading him and bragging about how much better he was. It was also clear from the start that he could not take criticism when the judge from the foundation challenge did like not his character.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Season Ten gives us [[FunnyForeigner Robert]].

to:

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Season Ten gives us [[FunnyForeigner Robert]]. He often gives his makeups odd pet names, and at one point he even admits (maybe jokingly?) that he pretends to infuse his creations with a demonic persona, so that if he fails the demon will take vengeance out on him.
