I made this dress out of a recycled tulle, the wall street journal & the l.a. times newspaper clippings, gold & white tissue paper, papier mache paste (flour + water), two zippers, various colors of thread, and the course of 3 days (:
I was challenged by my chemistry teacher to make something functional out of recycled or able-to-be-recycled materials, and this is the end result.
At first I was really disappointed, but it’s grown on me !
LOTS of comments walking through the hallways/walking around town.
Uber difficult/time consuming to scrunch into desks.
But surprisingly not itchy !
It’s totally inspired me to create a better version with more innovative materials and potentially put it in my portfolio for art school (:
