03-01-2024 15:00

People annually transform toilet paper into wedding dresses at the Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest in New York. Designers are only allowed to use toilet paper, glue, tape, needles, and thread to create their masterpieces.

The competition offers a more creative twist to bridal attire and the competitors are always excited as they make it down to the final 10 out of over a thousand hopefuls.

In 2016, the dress that won was dubbed ’’Winter Las’’, as it was inspired by the creator’s first snowstorm experience. The creations went on display at one of Ripley’s Believe It or Not global locations, which is a company that deals in strange and unusual items.

Difficult words: annually (every year), attire (clothes), hopeful (a person hoping to succeed), dubbed (nicknamed, called).
