Brides are blushing instead of flushing here! If you can believe it, this beauty worthy of a royal wedding was made entirely out of toilet paper. That's right. This is the winning entry of the 2009 Cheap Chic Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest held in Boca Raton FLA. The only rules are, the contest dress and headpiece entries must be made of Toilet Paper, Glue and/or tape ONLY. Other than that any aspiring designer can pleat, tuck and gather away to her heart's content.
This year's winner Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu, Hawaii fashioned a dress that looks, as Jack Jones of Boca Raton Bridal said, 'Absolutely like an Oscar de la Renta'. It's not just a dress that the judges found so intriguing here. Check out the woven hat below.

The top six dresses will be on permanent display at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Museum.

Seriously, I'd enter this contest if I thought I had any chance of winning. These women are pure geniuses with toilet paper . . . Why is it I can tailor a suit, line and structure a ball gown with a cathedral train but can not come up with one design concept for a bridal gown out of toilet paper . . . . . ?
