Draped out of Tape: Incredible Masking Tape Dress

Over at Burda Style, there are pictures of a stunning dress made out of masking tape. Esther Boller created the dress using interfacing, a zipper, and more than 17 rolls of masking tape. The dress took over 80 hours to create and won a National Gold Medal in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Of the dress, she said:

“I made this dress for the Scholastic Art and Writing competition. It’s made completely out of masking tape and let me just tell you that it was a bit of a sticky situation (haha pardon the pun, but I just couldn’t help myself). I was inspired by architecture and an empty butterfly chrysalis.”

You can read the entire interview with Boller about the dress here.
