Angie Keiser and her 4-year-old daughter Mayhem are taking the fashion world by storm one roll of toilet paper at a time. See how the pair recreate some iconic red carpet and runway looks!
What started as a fun art project has gone viral. Angie Keiser and her daugher Mayhem have created dozens of paper dresses, including some recognizable replicas!
Toddler Designs Paper Dresses For Fun
It all began when Angie found her own clothes hidden inside Mayhem’s toy box. The mom then suggested that they try creating a dress out of construction paper, and now Mayhem is the one calling all of the designer shots. The pair use anything from construction and toilet paper to masking tape and glue sticks. While Mayhem isn’t old enough to use a pair of scissors, she stands by and directs her mom Angie so that she will cut just the right piece out.
“It has been a lot of fun to watch. She has learned that when you put the pieces flat next to each other, they won’t work. [She knows that] to fit around your waist, you have to lay it at an angle,” Angie explained to the Today Show. “She could layout construction paper right now and tape it all together into a dress. She knows how many pieces she needs for a top and bottom.”
Pulling Inspiration From Celebs
Although the idea originally involved creating their own designs, now Angie likes to pull ideas off of the internet for Mayhem to replicate. Some ideas come from the red carpet like you see above — Mayhem in replicas of Lupita Nyong’o and Jennifer Lawrence‘s gowns — and sometimes they even come straight from the runway.
Angie says that the replica of Lupita’s dress only took ten minutes, and it’s one of Mayhem’s favorite looks!
