Sarah Bryan is a beautician from Wakefield, England who took a challenge further than expected.
The Theme Was Sweet Like Beauty
Sarah took it literally. Her inspiration came from watching her daughter play with pool balls. The pool balls reminded her of the tiny sugar coated candies, Skittles!
My idea came about when I saw my daughter playing in the garden with her pool balls that look like skittles! Then I thought I wonder If it’s been done before so I did some research and it hasn’t using only skittles sweets so I thought that’s it!
What seemed like a small project ended up taking a huge amount of time! It took about six hours everyday for a month—almost 180 hours!—to finish the dress.
What it took:
3000 Individual Skittles
90 Tubes of Glue
Do You Like My New Dress?
At the competition, the dress didn’t win, but a bright skittle dress is hard not to notice. The dress was seen all over, including the UK’s ITV, online, and more, bringing the candy creation to our attention.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! bought the dress!
Sarah thinks that her dress would be perfect for Lady Gaga. And it sure seems like something she would wear on stage.
