Wedding Belles

Actually, it was pretty good timing on my friend Ellie's part when she sent me these pictures. Wasn't I just looking at wedding dresses with my darling d this past weekend? Yeah, I think so. These dresses are all made out of toilet paper. YES !!!
There is a contest that seems to have attracted several participants. Could this be the new Project Runway spinoff? They are in order from Honorable Mention
which these first three are. I would love to see up close; like the zippers or the seams; something to see how these beauties were constructed. And did they get the big bag of toilet paper from Sam's/Costco/BJ's ?
I am so diggin' the basketweave!!!! Now we have the ones that placed and actually got a monetary prize. I believe it was $50 for placing, which would be 4th, 3rd and 2nd.

This is one came in at 4th place. I definitely would have done the flowers too, as I used to make toilet paper flowers all the time as a girl.
Here we have 3rd place. I think I would take off some of the 'train'; especially in the front. I am guessing they can't even walk in these creations. And I'm thinkin' - is softer better in this instance? Maybe not.
2nd place. Doesn't it look like the train is actually lacy?
And this is the back view of grand prize winner which received $200 but by the looks of it she used that
much or more on the toilet paper. Aren't these unbelievable? Just doing the pleating on this would take a week. I'm lovin' that someone did this, but frankly I have better use of my time. I need to see something concrete (figure of speech) for my efforts. How long must this have taken to do? Might Maggie be interested in a slightly worn but definitely unique gown such as one of these?

I suppose the fun is in the process...? They are amazing dresses. I wonder if they can get them off in one piece? And do they recycle the "material" in the purpose for which it was intended?

Just wonderin'...

Pretty funny! I am still smiling from looking at the dresses. A couple of them are very nice and obviously took a very long time to make. The gals must be better at time management than I am or else they have nothing better to do. Wow...the things people do.
