Mediums in bulk...

Postby Gadg » Mon Sep 15, 2003 5:26 pm

I'm constantly fascinated by the people who construct crazy costumes out of bulk material. This year I saw a woman who had a fantastic dress made from sporks, had a friend who constructed an outfit from thousands of holographic curly-Q ribbons, and and constantly amazed with the people who bury themselves in yards of el-wire or blinky lights. There are also the croud pleasers which involve stuffed animals, rubber gloves, playing cards, etc.

What other great costumes have you seen which take advantage of materials in bulk? Have any photos?

Do washers (those little round metal thingys) count as a bulk medium. If so I made this top for 2002.
