A Fort Lauderdale woman is one of three finalists vying for the crown of the "queen" of toilet paper wedding dresses.
Carol Touchstone designed her wedding dress, which she named "Coastal Wave," out of about 20 rolls of Vintage Pink Charmin. The contest, called Cheap Chic Weddings 2013 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest," is sponsored by Charmin.
Touchstone included a support hoop and asymmetrical accordion pleats, all made out of toilet paper.
"The inspiration on this particular piece was creating movement," Touchstone said. "I wanted to be sure to have the toilet paper move and not stay close to the body."
More than 1,100 dresses entered the competition, and Touchstone was selected as one of the top three contestants. She will be competing for the crown and for a $2,000 grand prize.
Touchstone will showcase her dress at a grand finale fashion show judging at RK Bridal in New York City on June 6.
The dresses will be judged by season 11 Project Runway alum, Kate Pankoke, Charmin and Cheap Chic representatives.
The winner will be crowned the "queen" of toilet paper wedding dresses.
