Designers Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi have created a gummy bear gown, a gorgeous -- and deliciously sweet -- dress made of gummy bears! The beautiful and intricate dress was created as an homage to the late Alexander McQueen and was inspired by his rainbow, bird-inspired gown (see gallery).

Taking three weeks to complete, the gummy bear gown was created for the first issue of TWELV magazine and made by twisting steel wire into the shape of a gown. Subsequently, 50,000 gummy bears were applied, with each gummy glued by hand onto a vinyl sheet covering the wire. The eye-catching dress also weighs about 220 pounds (so the model in the photos definitely deserves a round of applause!), and, according to TWELV, it was so heavy that it required the strength of three people to move it.
