SyFy's "Face Off" contestants faced a double elimination in the episode 'Dinoplasty' (2.9) on March 7. This is the second to the last episode for the makeup and special effects series. The remaining five, Sue, RJ, Matt, Ian and Rayce, were taken to the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History to look at dinosaur skeletons. Their challenge was to create a convincing human-dinosaur hybrid. Tensions ran high with the double elimination looming over everyone.
Sue (Tianyulong dinosaur) based her creation on a colorful, punk rock looking dinosaur that embodied "girl power." She went with a bold paint job, mohawk hair and a skateboard prop. Clearly the most playful and out of the box creation of the night.
RJ (Velocoraptor) went for a play on the dinosaur's name and created a dino that was a rapper, complete with dinosaur-themed gold bling. RJ stressed the judges wouldn't like the concept and that he'd be sent home on his birthday.
