Major, major kudos to Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu, Hawaii, winner of Cheap Chic Wedding's annual toilet-paper wedding dress contest, who made this mind-boggling matrimonial ensemble out of bathroom tissue—a textile fit for a recession!—tape, glue, and a breathtaking amount of commitment.

Lee's stunningly detailed creation, which has drawn comparisons to an Oscar de la Renta couture gown, according to the Web site, was inspired by a potent combo of Gone With the Wind and Japanese origami.

And the hat...oh please bask in the glory that is the HAT. For the win, people. For. The. Win. Seriously, Oscar de la Renta can eat her dust.

Lee wins $1,000 and a permanent spot at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Museum.
