Believe it or not, this GORGEOUS wedding dress is made entirely from Styrofoam!

Fancy a wedding dress made of Styrofoam? No, I bet, not until you see the unique wedding gown created by this talented 18-year-old high school student.

Alyssa Hertz has been quite an internet sensation lately for her out-of-this-world, intricately designed, white wedding gown, constructed entirely using Styrofoam. The 18-year-old high school student from Copley, Ohio, had designed this unusual dress for her school project.

Her one-of-a-kind dress was incredibly decorated with intricate detail, such as rosettes for the neckline, and a geometric pattern bodice comprising interlocking plate edges. It took over 500 pieces of Styrofoam cups, plates, and bowls to design this unusual wedding dress.

“Seeing it evolve from a bunch of different pieces, to finally seeing it all put together [is the most satisfying part],” Hertz told TODAY.

Hertz planned to study fashion design at Kent State University in Ohio. Seeing her creative handiwork, many people would agree that the sky is the limit to what she can achieve! Her future surely looks bright.

Taking inspiration from “Project Runway” and “Say Yes to the Dress,” Hertz’s one-of-a-kind dress was made using more than 500 pieces of Styrofoam cups, plates, and bowls!

Hertz cited Australian designer Paolo Sebastian as one of her greatest influences
