Her answer was "NO!"
Of course I had to see the press release. And the photos of last year's winner:
OMG! These dresses look real! Is there no fabric whatsoever? There are more dresses here. (And some tips from a video - don't have a pickle jar head in the photo. And don't be drunk in the photo. they can tell. No "bride of Chuckie" dolls. That's too scary.)
The 2011 winner used only 4 rolls of toilet paper, hot glue and packing tape. The really pouffy one at the bottom used 20 rolls of toilet paper and various types of glue (including modge podge).
Not that I'll be entering, but...
• You must use (a certain brand) toilet paper, tape, glue and/or needle and thread.
• The dress must be able to be worn by a human and be able to be taken on and off.
• DO NOT use zippers, Velcro, clasps, snaps, buttons, or any other material that is not fashioned of Toilet Paper, Tape, and/or Glue
