Fact: The best thing to do with gummy bears is to eat them. The second best thing, however, could arguably be to craft an Alexander McQueen-inspired dress out of 50,000 of them, which is what happened for the debut issue of TWELV Magazine.

On the right is a gelatin-based reinterpretation of McQueen's Rainbow Dress, being fitted straight onto model Jessica Pitti's body. It weighed 220 pounds, took three weeks to complete, and five hours to shoot. What's more impressive: That it took three adults to move it, or that those three adults managed to keep their appetites in check for the duration of the shoot?
