Wedding dress shopping can be it’s own slow, torturous hell. Unless you have unlimited time, patience, and/or resources, you may find yourself shlepping from shop to shop, with one specific dress in mind. Or instead you’re faced with a parade of tulle, lace, and chiffon. If you’re lucky, you at least won’t allow yourself to be talked into something you’ll later regret. And if you’re really lucky, you’ll be able to get the dress of your dreams at an affordable (HA!) price.
Well, the folks at Cheap Chic Weddings held their 13th annual TP Dress Contest, where designers are asked to make real wedding dresses constructed entirely of just toilet paper, and tape, glue, or thread. Out of 1,500 entries, 10 are selected for a runway show in New York City, where the winner gets $10K and their dress displayed at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! in Times Square.
Cheap Chic Wedding’s 2017 TP Dress Contest entries are absolutely stunning works of art.
These incredible designs are made of Quilted Northern tp and a metric crap ton of patience.
Can you imagine the construction process for these creations?? The detail work alone on each of the dresses is incredibly precise and laborious.
The winner of the 2017 TP Dress Contest is this gorgeous bodice sheath dress, with a train covered in 1,600 intricate, handmade, TP butterflies.
If your dress is made from tp, at least you won’t have to carry around a hanky for your wedding day tears.
