Like of the Week: Wedding Gowns Brought to you by… Charmin?
It’s odd and a little out there, but these stunning dresses are actually made from the one thing you use when you go to the John. Yup, look a liiiittle bit closer. These wedding gowns were constructed from toilet paper!
The 7th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest, sponsored by the site Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com may not have been on most people’s radar but it’s a challenge that hundreds of women compete in yearly in an attempt to create the perfect look for that oh-so special day.
These gowns take some delicate maneuvering to create, as well as roll upon roll of the popular paper product and it goes without saying that many of the results are incredibly impressive. Held together by only glue, tape and needle and thread, these garments must be inventive and wearable and are chosen based on three categories, “creativity, originality and overall beauty. “
This year’s winner, Susan Brennan (to the right), constructed her floor-length design from only 4 rolls, winning the $1000 grand prize.
In the end, while most brides will opt for a frock that’s NOT created by toiletry products, it can’t be denied that TP off the roll never looked soooo glam! To see more toilet paper-inspired creations, click here.
Okay, this dress is the shit nightmares are made of. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed countless flicks featuring Mr. Buscemi and his bug-eyes with much enthusiasm, however, that does NOT mean I want him plastered all over my naughty bits.
Now, in my humble opinion, you’d either have to be a very HUGE fan of ‘Empire Boardwalk’ or have had to have lost a bet to don this dress. It’s awkward, creepy and just plain odd. And with a price tag of $100, it’s sort of absurd. Then again, so is the site, Chicks with Steve Buscemeyes, so…I guess, it’s a draw?
Either way, in my book, this is a FAIL.
