So I decided to enter a second runway fashion show this last weekend :) It's just a quick one-day "Project Runway"-esque show held by my university's Student Unions and Activities.

We had 6 hours technically, to construct our garment (but at the end we were given an extra hour since a lot of teams weren't quite done after 6)
We had no idea what our materials were until we arrived, and it consisted of plastic tablecloth (either white, gold or red), various white/gold/silver/red ribbons, and stacks of playing cards in different sizes. Glue, scissors, and tape were also provided...and that was it.
Sooo, ready set go!

All the other groups had more than one designer...I was by myself, with my model (but one of her friends came along to help out!)
Honestly without them, I would not have finished as fast as I did--they helped me fold cards and cut out hearts, while I designed and arranged and glued and attached XD (we finished about an hour before other teams)

Also, there were only 7 teams competing (originally 10, but not sure where the last 3 went...D: )
And there was a grand prize awarded by the judges, and an audience award (so basically how many people could you bring to the event lol)

Once the show started, basically, the models did a walk around the stage/catwalk first, then came out again with their designer(s) and the designer had 1 minute to explain their garment's inspiration/construction...gosh I HATE talking in front of people on a stage... I think my heart would have exploded had I been up there either A. alone or B. for longer than a yeah, I blabbed something about the red queen, queen of hearts being our inspiration, after seeing red tablecloth and cards and yadayadayada...and how the entire dress I made was constructed with pretty much just...glue, specifically spray adhesive lol.

And guess what? We WON GRAND PRIZE! (it's things like this that make me want to change careers seriously...but i definitely need to view this more levelheadedly before changing stuff...though..changing majors has been a recurring thought but that's off topic)

Here are some pics of the dress I made, while we were on stage (after the winner announcement)! :)
I'm super proud of my model, who seriously stood for esentially the entire 6-ish hours it took for me to make the majority of the dress...since I made it ON her and did not plan on it being reusable later...She's seriously the best model I could ever ask for, and she's also the best roommate ever! <3

I also have some original concept sketches for this dress...I'll post them, if someone is curious? Lol.
