Two edible dresses that some friends and I made for an Edible Art competition at school--one's quite nutritious, and the other not so much....

The Sweet One:

Made out of Fruit Roll-ups, Pull n' Peel Twizzlers, Fruit by the Foot, Gummy Worms, a bit of icing, and some string to hold the boa together....

Detail shot of the In-Progress Bodice:

And accessories of course!

(Rice Krispie treats to build the heels, carrot sticks for scissor blades, and orange for the pincusion--the pins are real, watch out!)

We made it by wrapping my dress form in saran wrap, and then using a bit of water to get the candy to stick on...
We used scissors to trim the skirt, and used some icing to stick on the details!
And of course did a lot of snacking in the process:

The Healthy One:

We used thread to sew lettuce leaves to eachother and to my (once again) saran wrapped dressform.
Lots of layers for the bodice and the underskirt:

Layers of lettuce, cabbage, and orange peels to make the rosettes at the waist:

Plus, we covered a pair of shoes with lettuce to match! The rosettes are made of orange slices and bits of beet!

The sweet dress was devoured in seconds (huge surprise, right?  Roll Eyes) while the healthy one was barely touched, hahaha. These were made to be a matching set, so I hope it's okay to post both of them!

Thanks for looking, and remember to eat your leafy greens before dessert!
