A competition welcoming the best, brightest and most intricate wedding dresses made of toilet paper has proved to be the ultimate curation of creativity.
Hosted by the Ripley’s Believe it or Not! museum in New York and sponsored by Cheap Chic Weddings and a toilet paper brand called Quilted Northern, the winning gown was laced with 1,500 hand-cut butterflies.
Kari Curletto, the designer and a mother-of-two, won the $10,000 first prize using just toilet paper, glue, glitter and tape.
“It kind of feels like I’m dreaming right now,” Curletto said in an interview after her win, according to Reuters. “Halfway through I was going to quit. I was crying and thinking, ‘Well, I just can’t do it. It’s too much,’ and a butterfly flew into my yard and landed on my hand.”
About 20 of the top gowns will be donated to brides-to-be who were impacted by the sudden bankruptcy of national bridal dress chain Alfred Angelo last week.
These are just some of the unbelievable creations.
