I'm totally doing this too!  Weberly emailed me the link yesterday, and I am on it, spent a bit of last night playing with some of the materials to make sure I have the right dimensions for everything.  I wish we could send pics, but alas, I read all the rules.  I'm hoping to send in my entry in the next few days! 
A free trip to LA would be fun, too!

I like the fact that they just want a great idea, but you don't actually have to be able to MAKE the gown!  As long as you can create and explain the idea, and draw a good pic, your'e in!
Man, I hope a Craftster wins this one!  Good luck to all!

P.S.  Everyone save their images, and we can post our ideas in this thread (after the Feb. 1st deadline, of course)  I don't think the actual winner can do so (since their entry, when chosen, becomes intellectual property of ABC), but the rest of us can!

i don't know if this should go here..
but i'll give it a shoot..
i was on the ugly betty page and came across this

"Have you got the skills to design a fabulous couture dress? Do you have the creativity to blow past obstacles? Here's your chance to prove it! Create a dress that will appear in an episode of ABC's Golden Globe-nominated series Ugly Betty!

Here's the deal: Christina, Mode magazine's resident keeper of "the closet," is commissioned by a prominent celebrity to design a dress to be worn at a formal public event-- but she's snowed in at the office! With twelve hours to execute her design and no fabric to work with, Christina is forced to the use everyday office supplies to make her creation.

That's where you come in. Help Christina make the formal dress!

Submit drawing(s) or sketch(es) of your Design, showing both the back and front of the garment, along with instructions on how to construct it (i.e. materials used, shape, form and color) only using office supplies such as tape, bubble wrap, shopping bags, calendars, shoe boxes, hole punchers, paper clips or newspaper, just to name a few. Also, submit an original Essay in 100 words or less, discussing the underlying concept for the Design.

A dress based on the winning design will appear in an upcoming episode of the show! The winning "designer" will receive a trip for two (2) to Los Angeles, CA for the taping of the Ugly Betty television show scheduled to take place on 02/02/2007, where a dress based upon the winner's Design will be incorporated in the Show."

I'm sadly not in the US so i can't participate.

Is anyone else a bit disappointed by the limited supply list?  I immediately had ideas about this dress, and most of my wanted supplies ARE on the list, but there are a few other, STANDARD office supplies that I want to use, but they are NOT on the list.  It's highly annoying, cause I don't want to get disqualified for using extra stuff, but I think I can do better than what they have given us.  Am I alone on this one?
P.S.  Their list says this:

You may use ONLY one or more of the following materials:

Sticky (adhesive) notes
Mailing envelopes
Bubble wrap
Shipping forms
Garbage bags
Plastic water bottles
Paper clips
Fabric swatches (i.e., samples)
Shopping bags
Invisible tape
Plastic clothes hangers
Plastic garment covers
Hole puncher
Light bulbs
Shoe boxes
Pattern paper
Shoe inner soles

Man if only it was for the office you worked in and not random office. My office is part of a company thats bras, our office is covered in radom underthings and fabric. We get sent swatches and randomness that would be perfect. Oh well!

You can use scissors to create it, but it doesn't say they can be used as a supply.... I'm sure they are fine.

thanks! these office supplies listed are kind of general...trashbags/shopping bags come in all kinds of colors...so can we use any color?
