Artist Completes Fashion Drawings With Food


What better way to conceptualize food as couture, than to actually use food items to complete fashion sketches?

Thankfully, artist Gretchen Röehrs enjoys fashion and playing with her food. She’s created a series of illustrations where various foodstuffs are cleverly-placed to act as dresses and other accessories.

Can’t wait to see these on the runway…

A Dress Made From Taco Bell Wrappers


You’ve eaten nothing but late-night Chalupas and Taco Supremes for months. So, what to do with all of those Taco Bell wrappers? If you’re as creative and into Tex-Mex as artist Olivia Mears is, you make a Taco Bell Wrapper Dress, of course.

The dress is made from about 130 wrappers, with sauce pack accents. All of the materials were unused of course. So, please do not make clothing with your chalupa-stained wrappers, as previously suggested.

Wedding Dress Cake


So much planning goes into a wedding. There’s the dress, the cake, the dress cake… Wait, what? Created by the “Fairy Godmother of Wedding Cakes” Donna Millington-Day, the Wedding Dress Cake is beautiful enough to wear on your big day and almost too nice to eat.

The dress cake is made from 17 tiers of sponge cake, 22 kilograms of icing, one kilogram of royal icing and hundreds of sugar pearls. When served it would be enough for about 2000 guests. Hopefully it’s not red velvet inside.

Candycorn Dress

If you’re having trouble deciding what to be for Halloween, consider going as a giant sugary triangle. The Candycorn Dress, perhaps wearable anytime of year, makes for a sweet Halloween costume when you add the included pointy hat. And, since you’re already shaped like a triangle, it won’t matter that horizontal stripes are so unflattering.

Be sure to check out Sexy Halloween Costumes: Food Edition for other costume ideas. You’re welcome.
