I never really understood the Internets’ fascination with gummy bears. It all seemed a little pointless, and silly to me.
To create the masterpiece, steel wire was twisted into the shape of the dress and covered with a sheet of vinyl. Then 50,000 gummy bears were painstakingly glued on by hand in a colorful pattern reminiscent of a Chevron rainbow.
Taking three weeks to complete, the final dress was fitted exactly to MAJOR model Jessica Pitti’s measurements. And weighing in at approximately 220 pounds, required the strength of three adults to move.
Below, the Alexander McQueen dress Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi took their inspiration from.
