Plastic Ball Gown - 1 of 3

629 Favourites
Ball gown made from matte and translucent plastic. Displayed with a corset made from 225 mustard packets.

I wrote a blog post about this one, with lots of info and background.

I also posted a topic about it on Craftster.

More photographs of this and other artworks can be found at my Imagekind portfolio.

how did you do the corset?
I love the whole look but I've been trying to work with condiment packets myself for a project and I'm slightly flummuxed regarding how to actually make them into something. -_-

I love the whole outfit. Very well done and highly professional.

WOW, now that is a really clever idea, not mention your also helping with recycling. I wonder if you were to ware that dress and suddenly some one tells you that you smell like mustard?

Wow! That is so cool! I think I love it:P

I'm making a Tudor dress right now but using plastics so clever!
russiantea87's avatar don't know me but, hi, I'm russiantea87: and I'd like very much to use that dress for a character design.

It is, the perfect dress for my revamped gypsy princess__okay, she's not a vampire or anything, but i completely redefined the gypsy I think, in many respects. I made her design very different than, what you would typically concede is, a 'very' gypsy persona.

The plastic really suits this character: it's very eclectic and unorthodox, yet also sensual, especially the steam punk film noir time period this story takes place within.

I really, really, really want this dress for this character; so...can I, please.

The dress in it's entirety will be credited to your ingenuity in the realms of aesthesia, and not mine.
