Immortalized Episode 8: Heaven and Hell

| |

Finally we have the return of my favorite Immortalizer, Takeshi Yamada. Tonight he goes up against the challenger, Gary Robbins.

Tonight’s theme is “Heaven and Hell”, which should provide for an interesting contest.

Robbins is a Hollywood taxidermist that provides his pieces for television and film, to name a few. His experience is broad and impressive. This will be a challenge for Yamada. Robbins personal goal is to be ranked number one in the country. He plans on using mice as humans. They will be in heaven, but there will also be a dark hell represented. We get to see Robbins working in his Burbank studio. Mice are tedious to work with, as they are fragile with delicate and thin skin. This project has been taking time from his other work, but he’s banking on this to get him some more work in Hollywood.

Yamada’s idea for the theme is guaranteed to blow people’s minds, he claims. He’s going to use a goat as the base, with six eyes and a mermaid tail. He says it will be the devil in heaven. We see Yamada scavenging for carcasses on the beach and working out the measurements and design. He says this is the most ambitious taxidermy he has ever done before.

Back in the studio their crates have arrived and they rush to reassemble their projects and bring them back to life. Robbins presents his piece first by explaining that he has fantasy and fun incorporated into the project. It’s small, but the Hollywood style is apparent. With a devil mouse and a rattlesnake with a tail that shakes, it’s full of clichés. Next, Yamada is up and he starts by saying that his project was inspired by a Buddhist teaching, and he revealed his piece with his familiar shout of, “Shazam!” His hearty laugh and theatrical presence are a delight, and when the curtain was pulled back, we got another unique and striking piece from Yamada.

The judges are not impressed with Robbins’ piece considering he comes from a Hollywood quality studio, but they are all very much into Yamada’s piece. It’s not hard to guess who will prevail tonight.

We have Yamada for the win with a score of 85 to 49! He had the biggest win yet, and boy howdy was it deserved. Amazing work, Mr. Yamada.
