Craftster user Theperilouspopsicle decided to make her own prom dress out of ... Skittles candy wrappers!
101 skittle wrappers.
a very cool thing about this project is that i posted ads on craigs list for wrappers and people actually sent me quite a few!
oh and yeah, turns out i dont actually like skittles..only the red ones. and after this project i dont think i'll ever want skittles again (i had my friends eating most of them...hey! it was like a recycling AND a feed the hungry project)
And apparently, being the Skittles girl made her into the Belle of the Ball:
Prom went really well, my dress was a total hit and tons of people stopped to talk to me and take photos. Even during afterparty when i disguised myself in a tshirt and jeans there were still people running up to talk to me/ 'omg thats the skittles girl!'. So all in all it was a great night, and the dress was definitely a success...now i wonder what i'll make next seeing as i want to do more unconventional material work.
