Junk Kouture :)

This year everyone in Transition Year has to make an outfit from recyclable objects. I am in a group with Kate and Aisling, and we are doing a Tea Party theme, I am modelling our creation. The top of our dress is a bodess made with chicken wire and covered with paper machete. We placed used tea bags over the paper machete. The tea bags are brown in colour.
For the bottom part of our outfit we did a skirt in the shape of a tea pot. We shaped the chicken wire into a tea pot and paper macheted the skirt. We then covered the skirt in painted used tea bags. I painted my tea bags pink, Kate painted her tea bags purple, and Aisling painted her tea bags blue. We are putting these tea bags onto the skirt.
We are doing a handle of the tea pot, which my arm will go into. This is covered in pink tea bags. We also have a hat, which acts as the lid of a tea pot. This is covered in blue tea bags. For our shoes we are covering them in purple tea bags.
I am really enjoying making an outfit that I will be able to wear and say that I had a hand in making it.
