Gummy Bear Dress By Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi

I should file this under things I would never wear, but I guess 'conceptual art' will do.
This dress, inspired by an Alexander McQueen dress (pictured below), is made up of over 50,000 Gummy Bears that were hand glued onto wire and vinyl sheets,
(Created by Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi)

It appeared in the inaugural issue of TwelvMag (which is totally worth checking out and bookmarking)

(Alexander McQueen)

What is the most usual material you've worn?

So gorgeous, I probably would've eaten half of the gummies while trying to make the dress! ♥

Beautiful! I'm pretty sure my kids would just attack me with their mouths if I ever wore something like that:)

Ooooooooooooooooooh I see this on my yahoo feed the other day, and now i feel differently about gummy bears.. sad. like I almost can't eat them anymore.. like they're just for dresses.

Mia said...

Now that is thinking outside the box, or lolly packet or something....actually makes me want something sugary right away. I wonder is they have treated the gummy bears so they don't get all soft and sticky?

Krystal said...

i would just be eating it actually...

That is an amazing concept... but not sure how long the dress would last around peckish models :-)
