1  Purple Condom Pencil Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blue1 on: December 12, 2008 12:18:34 AM
My college hosts a condom fashion show each year for World AIDS day and the student group Im in decided to participate, so low and behold the condom skirt was born. I thought a pencil skirt would be easy compared to some of the condom fashion floating around out there (doubt it-google condom fashion for yourself) but this was crazy time consuming.

540 purple condoms (yes, provided) and a reconed skirt later and I was on the runway!

I lost count of how many hours it took me to hand sew these condoms, 10? 15?...All I know is my GPA will be feeling the pain. 

Here is a somewhat close-up shot and then a picture of me on the runway, there is also a link to where this second picture came from and pictures from the rest of the event, it was pretty amazing.

Its hard to tell in either photo but the skirt should ride lower and actually is high waisted, but the combination of the fact that I kept on hiking the skirt up all night since it was so heavy and kept falling and that my shirt was not the best did not do the skirt justice, oh well.


Here's another link for a photo of my skirt on flickr and other shots from the event:
