The Bristle Dress is a gorgeous garment fit for an ice queen--one more along the lines of Elsa from 'Frozen' rather than the White Witch from 'The Chronicles of Narnia." Utterly stunning, the Bristle Dress looks like it was formed out of intricate icicles. In reality, it was 3D printed out of a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester, a material selected for its translucent qualities.

Designed by Francis Bitonti Studio in collaboration with Makerbot and Lagoa for the New Skins Workshop: Brumal Bodies, which took place at the Metropolitan Exchange in Brooklyn, the Bristle Dress boasts a structured geometric skirt and an ethereal top that extends up and over the head regally. The skirt portion of the dress is available for download at
