I am completely fascinated when people can make unexpected products out of ordinary, everyday items. Just like our today’s topic – 15 Weirdest and Craziest Dresses, I never thought of we can make dress out of so much different materials, from condom to glove, from paper to zipper, from puff to chocolate…That is just amazing!!!

I just have no word for this one…just remind me of those bubble wrap…
3. Balloon Dresses [link]
Now, just don’t pop the dress otherwise you will regret wearing one.
4. Crepe paper dress [link]
Why would anyone make a dress out of crepe paper? We don’t know the answer, but someone in the Frahm family of the Fort Calhoun area made this paper dress in the 1910s. I guess it must be a big new at that time…But just remember, never ever wash it…
5. Newspaper dress and laundry bag dress by Garys latest [link]

6. toilet paper dress – incredibly awesome… [link]
Anyone who’s been to a bridal shower has probably made at least one wedding dress or veil out of toilet paper. It’s a surprisingly difficult material to work with, but in the hands of professionals, the results can be surprisingly pretty!
7. Cream Puff Dress [link]
Millions of women love cream puffs and a good number of them wouldn’t mind having a croquembouche – tower of cream puffs – at their wedding. Very few would actually want to be a croquembouche. Ukrainian pastry chef Valentyn Shtefano made his wife’s wedding dress entirely out of cream puffs and caramelized sugar. It took over 2 months to make and used 1,500 puffs. Despite the fact that it appears to be heavy, the dress weighed only 20 pounds.

Designed by the famous spanish designer Paco Rabanne

10. Skittles Wrapper Dress [link]
15 hours and 101 Skittle wrappers after, Craftster user Theperilouspopsicle finished her Prom dress made entirely out of this candy wrappers.
11. Used Packing Dress [link]
This one is made by empty packing box…colorful… but I guess shouldn’t be comfortable…
12. Dress of zippers [link]
This dress is made entirely out of zippers, 120 metal zippers! It was created by Chilean artist/designer, Sebastian Errazuriz.
I love adjustable and transformable clothes. What might be most remarkable about this design is how quickly it can shift from elegant to sexy, a full-length, single-piece dress one could potentially wear to work into a skimpy, short-cut, two-piece number that could put some bikinis to shame. In between there are any number of other options for shortening the top or bottom or even leaving some zippers partly on and partly off.
13. Condom Dress [link]
Created by Brazilian artist Adriana Bertini, they are made of thousands of quality-control-rejected condoms. These colorful clothes were shown at the “Dress Up Against AIDS: Condom Couture,” an exhibition at UCLA’s Fowler Museum.
