Candy as Fashion: 50,000 Gummy Bear Gown (Incredible)

I'm a sucker for candy fashion. This gown made of 50,000 gummy bears is no exception. Simply the amount of work to create such an intricate piece of art is incredible. The designers, Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi, created the form of the dress from steel wire and then hand-glued all 50,000 gummy bears in a careful pattern of color. The final result? 220 pounds of fashion!

  1. That is really beautiful! I keep having the "what ifs" though: what if there were ants? What if it rained on the gown? What if someone developed an uncontrollable urge for gummy bears?
