Wedding dresses made from balloons by Rie Hosokai

Insanely talented Japanese artist Rie Hosokai is taking balloon twisting away from kids parties and into high fashion. The handmade dresses start at US$2,000, which can seem a little hefty when you consider the balloons will start to deflate after twenty four hours.

Apparently the price tag hasn’t deterred brides to be: more than twenty orders have been placed for balloon wedding dresses since Hosokai started her business two years ago.
