Toilet paper wedding dress winner wipes competition away

A Michigan woman's toilet paper creation earned her top honors in the seventh annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest.

Susan Brennan of Orchard Lake, Mich., was one of five contestants vying to become the grand prize winner Thursday at Boca Raton Bridal in Florida.

The competition judges the best bridal dresses made out of toilet paper. Dresses are judged on creativity, originality, beauty and use of toilet paper.

Brennan says her dress was inspired by nature. The dress was created with four rolls of toilet paper, hot glue and packing tape.

Laura Lee of Milpitas, Calif., came in second place.

Lee says she was inspired by how new brides want to look and feel in their wedding dresses. She used five rolls of one-ply toilet paper, transparent duct tape, first aid tape and spray adhesive to make her dress.

Cynthia Richards of Marietta, Ga., finished third.

Richards says her dress was inspired by her business partner's dream. She used 20 rolls of toilet paper, duct tape, hot glue, Mod Podge glue and fabric glue to make the dress.

As grand prize winner, Brennan takes home $1,000. Lee takes home $500 for her second-place finish, and Richards takes home $250 for her third-place finish.
