Project Runway Candy Couture


Oh my, how we love Project Runway over here.  We were planning to skip this season's challenges, but we absolutely could not pass up a candy one!

We are 100% in love with Ven's candy dress made out of crushed rock candy.  Genius!  He won, obviously, and we used his crushing technique as inspiration in our outfit.

So, we got crushin' away with some rainbow nerds.  Oh yeah!  I wasn't thrilled about the shade of the purple nerds so I ate 'em.


We cut out a tie, created shapes with some 3D fabric paint, and then glued the nerds on to create this funky design.  We added the candy dots as "buttons" for the collar and cuffs.


Well we originally bought the cotton candy for a crazy mohawk hairdo, but things don't always go as planned.  Once I realized the cotton candy wasn't going to cooperate, I ended up making this tall hat and used the cotton candy for flowers.


BUT the cotton candy literally dissolves just being exposed to air I guess.  I tried to glue the flowers on as fast as I could so I could take pictures before they totally lost their shape.  Ahhhhh!!!

You can see a huge difference looking at the flowers in this photo from when I first applied them to the hat (above photo).  If you watched Project Runway, you would have seen almost every designer had candy falling off their models, candy sagging/changing shape, candy dissolving, etc.


All in all, this was a fun challenge and it reminded me of one of my favorite challenges from Project Runway All Stars when we made this pineapple costume for a "fruit-inspired" look.


What type of candy would you choose to create a look with?  We want to know!


XOXOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

Crushed Nerds made up the rest of the outfit! How clever is that? Sebastian looks so good, I could "eat" him. Well, at least his outfit :D

That's a cute outfit, but I think my dogs would be sniffing and eating all of the candy.

Happy Wednesday!
