    the trail? do you mean the runway? Why not take a bunch of mini snack bags and collage them all over the floor.

    have another idea... take plastic gallon milk cartons cut em in half and line the sides of the runway with them and cut a small hole to have "lights".

    I think she means the trail of the dress.. you know like how weddingdresses have trails on the ground behind the bride.


    Ummm a few ideas could be, old bags are good the ygo with the whole day glow thing. Use black binliners or interesting coloured shopping bags. Also if you make a frame from withies or wire or something and you cut the bags into strips or squares covering them in PVA glue makes the stiff like plastic tiles. You could them sew then all together like a big patchwork net of them and use that as a trail.

    hehehe no problem :) also send a message to Chikkabean on here. i used to go to college with her and she did fashion and worked a lot with recycled and envirolmentaly friendly material, including wooden panneling in dresses (tehe one dress had to be dissassembled to get it out of the class room for the fashion show)
