the pen is mightier

This is a Bic Crystal ballpoint pen

This is a dress made out of 1,200 Bic pens, and 2,000 Swarovski crystals. It took 640 hours to make and weighs 81 pounds.

Annette Carey designed this dress to celebrate the 60th anniversary of BIC. It's on exhibition at the BIC Crystal Exhibition in West London and for sale for around $14,000.

I don't think the overall design of the dress is very interesting (nor flattering) but I must admire the workmanship behind it.
The concept of making a dress out of an unusual material isn't new but I am always interested in seeing the end results.

its really cool actually but i agree that the overall design in quite awkward and has no "fun"
