This has Katy Perry's name written in whip cream all over it!

Designers Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi have turned candy into a delicious and wearable piece of couture: a gown made out of 50,000 gummy bears!

The gummy garment was inspired by a dress from Alexander McQueen's S/S 2008 collection and it was no easy feat.

To create the flavorful frock, the designing duo had to twist steel wire into the shape of the dress and covered in vinyl. Each gummy bear was then glued on, by hand, to make a rainbow Chevron pattern.

After all was said and done, the beary delicious design took three weeks to make and weighed a whopping 220 pounds.

Dayum!

Once completed, the dress was photographed for a feature in TWELV magazine, which was a production in and of itself. The shoot lasted around five hours because the model needed three adults to move around.

That's a lot of work for one dress, but we think it was totes worth it!
