Thank you to all those who made positive and helpful comments.

This was a family effort.
Materials used - 2 stools, ball, hoop, sticky tape, and toilet paper.
Hoop to hold bottom of "skirt" edge, band for waist with strips of tape running down between them and toilet paper wound round and round....and round...etc.

Still getting my eye in with the focus - a point raised by many, but getting there!
A new PB!!!

It's a shame that the picture is blur cause you might have spent so much time on the dress !!! I'll score for the originality and work !

Very nicely done. A+ for effort - almost looks like a real dress. I hope this ribbons.

I like your idea and title for this contest, but you lack some things on how you performed it. There isn't a strong focus on the bride and the whole photo looks little bit washed out. A higher contrast should fix that plus the background would be a lot more darker so it wouldn't be so obvious that it's shot in a studio. But I'll still give it a 7 for the effort

"A flushing bride" might have worked as well.

That's a lot of tp...! Beautifully assembled. Looks like a real dress. Also beautifully lit, if just a teensy bit hot on her neck

Amazing dress. She looks lovely.

Photographically it's a shame she's not in clearer focus on the face and the cropped hem of the skirt is unfortunate.
