Dress Made Out of 50,000 Gummy Bears: Would You Wear It?

A designer dress that also satisfies our sweet tooth? Yes, please. This latest Alexander McQueen-inspired gown combines two of our very favorite things: fashion and candy. Made out of 50,000 gummy bears, the rainbow dress was handmade for TWELV Magazine's debut issue and weighs in at a hefty 220 pounds. It takes three people just to move the thing, so this is clearly not a dress you can go out dancing in.
How exactly is a gummy bear dress made? First, steel wire is twisted to create the shape of the dress, then the mold is covered with a sheet of vinyl, and finally each gummy bear is painstakingly glued on in a chevron rainbow pattern. No surprise it took three weeks to finish this elaborate gown.
We're guessing it would take a lot of will power to wear this dress and not snack on it. After all, there are 50,000 gummy bears to choose from. Who's going to notice one or two missing?
