Alexander McQueen-Inspired Dress Made Out of 50,000 Gummy Bears

We’ve long love gummy bears for their ability to satisfy the strongest of sugar cravings, but what we weren’t aware of was their ability to be crafted into an evening gown.

Behold this dress, made entirely from gummy bears. The creation was made by Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi, who crafted 50,000 gummy bears into a gown for TWELV Magazine's debut issue.

The dress was created as a tribute piece to late designer Alexander McQueen.

But you may be asking yourself, how does one mold thousands of gummies together and get them to stay in place?

According to TWELV, “steel wire was twisted into the shape of the dress and covered with a sheet of vinyl. Then 50,000 gummy bears were painstakingly glued on by hand in a colorful pattern reminiscent of a Chevron rainbow.”

After three weeks of work to finish it, the final dress weighed in at a whopping 220 pounds.

Tell us: What do you think of the gummy bear dress?

Poor girl, probably should have a gummi bear strap to hold it up. Unless she enjoys the feeling of lots of cool air on her chest... poor poor girl ;-)
