Made out of cut-up Trash Bags and Tulle.

With no intentions of entering the challenge I was laying in bed
thinking "What and how the heck can you crochet without using
thread or yarn"? I fell asleep and had a crochet vision (yes, it's
sad, I dream of crocheting)  When I woke, I had a trashy plan Wink
I don't recommend wearing this thing, It's unbearably itchy!

I cut the materials in a continious square so I was working
with one long piece instead of strips. I crocheted the skirt with
a P hook. The waistband in HDC and the body in DC. The Bikini
top was crocheted with an L hook in SC's.

Interesting.  I hadn't thought about trash bags.

It is pretty cool looking! Is there a way you can line it with something not as scratchy, like an old black t-shirt? It'd be a shame to not be able to wear it!!

To add to the creepy parade...that does look hot (and so do you!)  Thinking about it, you could probably make a load of money selling it to a celebretante (like someone named Paris?) and become a totally famous fashion designer.

That is totally hot, and I have to say I am a bit jealous of the shape you are in!

I'm so impressed you put it on for the show! Extra points for that
I had a teacher in primary school who used to crochet hats out of bread bags. They were quite comfy because of the soft plastic, however we 10 year olds thought he was nuts

I'm going to join everyone else in saying that both you and the bikini are hot.  I, too wish I was in that king of shape.  I'm glad you chose to model it - the picture of it lying flat just doesn't do it justice.  You could line it with black fabric to stop the itchy...
