Check out these beautiful paper wigs by US-based artists Nikki Salk and Amy Flurry. Yeah, they're totally impractical and highly flammable, but they look amazing! The Marie Antoinette style wigs were created for The Bay's holiday window while the black wigs below were designed specially for Kate Spade stores. They're part of an ongoing paper cut project, dubbed "The Paper Cut Project" that the design duo are working on that includes animal masks and hats (check out their website here: http://www.paper-cut-project.com.
Amy Flurry is a freelance writer, editor and stylist while Nikki Salk has a degree in Fine Arts in Design and runs a fashion blog called Fashion Gatherer http://www.fashiongatherer.com/ and an art website called Charta-Aeterna. Their paper installations are “fueled by a love of fashion and an appreciation of grace and nuance of this humble material.” They function as an antithesis to mass production and a return to something more personal, creative and hands on. Apparently each piece takes 30 to 80 hours to complete and is made entirely by hand using Bristol board, glue, and a utility knife.
I think this one is my favorite though. Bit of a Curly Sue number (does anyone remember that film? It's one of my all time favorites).
And then of course you need a paper dress to go with the wig and I've found the perfect one:
