I’ve been meaning to put this up for the longest time! I did this shiz in January with loads of Kleenex, tissue paper, glue, staples, vanguard sheets and some paint! It was for one of the publicity “stunts” we did in school for a party at Zouk with a glam celeb thingy theme.

I think it took me about…. four hours to make… from 0030 to 0430 – yes in the morning.

Here’s my sister modelling it.

So some people really hated this on Bjork, and it’s so long ago, I know… But I love it! 😀

Love this! It’s really cute, and to me taking 4 hours to make something like this is actually pretty fast. Am I weird to think that?

I was wondering, would you like to do a link exchange with me?

love the swan outfit, it’s brilliant. and bjork never goes out of style!

(but did your tissue paper get squashed when you sat down though?)

When you mentioned Bjork, it all came back to me. I think the only reason why people didn’t like it was just cause it was Bjork and everything associated with her is weird… If it were on Mary-Kate or Chanel Iman… People would be glorifying it. Well.. I think you just did! You are a genius!

Totally made me smile!! LOVE IT!

Reminds me of white chicks! The part at the end when they had to model this swan thingie at the fashion show!!

But the effort is PHWOAH-able.

soon lee thanks! 😀

fashion addict you’ve got a link exchange (: i guess i work faster under pressure. i had a deadline to meet! which was in about 5 hours, plus i wanted a few hours of sleep too haha.

zann yesss!! the tissue paper did. at that time i wish i could whip out a steam iron and just smoothen out the creases.. but nooo. it just flattened.

ok-jk oh yes halloween! but i threw the costume away already.

sarah thanks heh. yea i like bjork’s weirdness!! i never knew this post would make people happy! (:

rose thanks! (:

susie thanks! actually… it’s pretty easy. i think it’s just cos i concealed the messy parts haha.

lene mmm i didn’t watch white chicks! so… i wouldn’t be able to figure out the correlation hahahah but thanks 😀

HAHA!! I’m one of THE FEW people who actually liked the swan dress cause firstly, it’s fresh and shocking. Secondly, it’s Bjork. Lastly, I’m a disgustingly sticky fan of hers!

And now with you recreating it, I’M LOVING YOU!!! HAHA!

That is effing BRILLIANT! Urgh, need time for DIY!!! It looks so fun to wear!

Comment by kay

Comment by Cupcakes and Cashmere

bingboompia aww thanks! hmm i think i’m slowly (maybe too slowly) learning how to appreciate bjork’s music. at the first listen it was pretty.. astounding, hahaha.

kay thanks! haha yea it is fun to wear, just have to figure a way/fabric so that it doesn’t crease when i sit down 😡

cupcakes and cashmere i would have worn it for halloween but i threw it away cos it’s quite difficult to keep. thanks for the compliment, heh.

anyway, would anyone want a custom made one for fun? i’m thinking of using felt instead of vanguard, but i haven’t thought of a replacement for kleenex and tissue 😡
