Each year I get excited about the annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress contest. It truly shows off creativity and I have to say that this year's winners may be the best wedding looks I've ever seen.
You know how Project Runway will have the contestants make stuff out of things found in a junkyard? Or the people on Top Chef can only craft a meal from things from the convenience store? Same thing here, and this TP contest has been going on for six years.
The rule is that only toilet paper, tape, and glue are allowed -- and for the first time in the contest's history, this year designers were allowed to sew.
Check out the winning looks!
Galit Zeierman of Ramat Gan, Israel, took home the $1000 grand prize. She made a short dress with an amazing and very intricate bodice. Give this to me in black and I would wear it to a party. Check out the bird on her shoulder! And yes, that headpiece is also made out of TP.
The second place winner was Ericka Andrade of Winnetka, California. She won $500 for her sweetheart neckline gown. And look at that headpiece. I would have worn this to my wedding. Very much my style.
Bailie Bickford of Carlsbad, California, won $250 for her frilly gown with a beautiful train. How fantastic do those toilet paper ruffles look?
"Judging this year's entries was tough," Laura Gawne from Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com said. Roxie Radford, also from the site, added, "We had so many fantastic dresses to choose from!"
