I made this just for the challenge. Never done this before, it's harder than it looks.

Not much editing. Rotate, Crop USM.

I may post some outakes, one of me wearing the dress.

Got let down with model for dress so put it up without.
Third attempt at making dress. first two ended up as pile of latex on floor.

Very unusual, but the harsh lighting lets it down, I'm afraid.

Very cool and unique idea. This would have been better for me if it were on a solid background.

Great idea but the background really spoils it for me.

The dress is cool, the picture could have been better. You can see the shadow on the right from the flash... and the placement is distracting, carpet, wall, window, blinds...

Holy cow! How long did it take to make that? And then all you had was onboard flash...?

Now just imagine a model with hair done with yellow and black streak and intense makeup wearing that dress in a surreal landscape... that would be an amazing shot, this however while impressive as a balloon dress is not a good photograph.

It is a pity no one wearing it.
