Prom buzz this year has been all about who’s taking (or promposing) to who, with one lucky student snagging Kylie Jenner as his date, and another receiving a handwritten letter from Emma Stone (who, sadly, couldn’t make his event despite his charming La La Land spoof).
One designer just took the focus back to fashion, however, creating a prom dress like you’ve never seen — at least not since that bride DIY-ed a wedding dress fashioned from Taco Bell wrappers.
Artist Olivia Mears, who also happens to be a costume designer, dreamt up a one-of-a-kind ballgown beyond our wildest dreams that, quite literally, allows you to become a pizza. “It fans out into a whole pizza pie when I sit!” she wrote on Instagram.
The dress also looks surprisingly fetching while standing up, with a bottom that swirls in just the right way as to be fit for a pizza-loving princess. “If only I’d had this for my prom!” Mears lamented.
The creative dreamt up the gown in an effort to become one of 50 winners that could take home a check for $10,000 and a chance to visit company headquarters for Domino’s “Piece of the Pie” contest through November.
The dress took two weeks to make, as Mears told Bustle, and is comprised of hand-painted fabric, foam and other materials. She even went the extra mile to craft herself a throne out of pizza boxes from which to rule on high, saying, “I will take what is mine with feta and bacon.”
It’s not her first crack at making a dress that’s ode to food, either: See her Halloween “Taco-Belle” creation above.
Frankly, we can’t imagine anything “topping” this — we’ll be pulling for you, Olivia!
