Cheap Chic Weddings just declared a winner of their toilet-paper wedding dress contest. The grand prize went to Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu, who made this spectacular confection from nothing more than toilet paper, tape, and glue. It's mind-blowing. Just look at the texture, the detail, the hat! She was inspired by Gone With the Wind and Japanese origami. According to CheapChicWeddings.com, "Her dress has been compared to an Oscar de la Renta couture gown." Let us all take a moment to admire her hard work, attention — nay, commitment — to detail, and her vision. Because this kind of craftsmanship deserves more than her award of just $1,000 and a permanent spot in Ripley's Believe it or Not museum.
