We didn’t think that TWELV magazine could outdo itself after seeing the glossy’s Alexander McQueen-inspired dress made entirely out of gummy bears in its inaugural issue back in July. Well, we were wrong. For TWELV‘s second issue, the mag enlisted sculptor Takeo Okamoto to create a gown made out of ice. Ice!
Okamoto, who runs his own company with his son, was inspired by Tilda Swinton‘s frosty ensemble in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. He made the 532.6 pound dress inside a freezer with the help of three assistants. The dress took took two days to carve and required 13 people to move. Quite the feat, we’d say.
But while the dress took Okamoto a long time to freeze and carve, it only took 30 minutes for it to melt into a large puddle of water. The mag’s photography and production crew had to move quite quickly during the photoshoot, and we’ve got a look at the dress below:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
