A Dress Made Out Of 50,000 Gummy Bears
Dresses have been made using various materials: film slides, condoms, paper, meat (à la Lady Gaga) and the likes.
For its debut issue of TWELV Magazine, Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi created an Alexander McQueen-inspired dress made entirely out of gummy bears.
According to TWELV, to create the dress, steel wire was twisted into the shape of the dress and covered with a sheet of vinyl. 50,000 gummy bears were then painstakingly glued on by hand “in a colourful pattern reminiscent of a Chevron rainbow”.
The gummy bear dress weighs 220 pounds, took three weeks to complete, and requires the strength of three adults to move.
