This was a very intersting project.

I made a dress out of bed sheets usuing a pattern, I put all the parts together but it was pretty plain. So I took some unloved 90's comic books and glued them on in a paper mache type fashion. It's really stiff, for obvious reasons, and really hot too. The hardest part was the skirt since it is a circle skirt. I also made a matching clutch.



BTW, my dress form is made of hot pink ducktape. Cool right?

I love it! I want the tape you used for your dress form. Mine is just plain silver.
What did you use to glue the comics on your dress?

Working a sewing machine is harder to than driving a JCB. No, really.

that looks awesome! I am also interested in what type of glue you choose to apply the comics. I have made a few things with comics and I turn the comics into a workable medium by ironing the comic pages to fusible interfacing and then covering them with clear vinyl. That way it isn't paper mache stiff.

I used some genric fabric glue.
I didn't really matter, since it's not like it's going through the was or anything.
