Sarah Louise Bryan, a 27-year-old former beautician, was basically homeless, relying on the kindness of friends who let her and her two kids stay with them. So she was laying in bed one night, trying to think of a way to make their lives better, when she got the idea for for a dress made entirely out of Skittles. She called it #ProjectTasteTheRainbow.

The dress is made of approximately 3,000 Skittles and 90 tubes of glue, and took 180 hours to complete. No word on how much of the material was consumed by the dressmaker over those 180 hours.
