TWELV Magazine Creates Ice Dress Inspired By Tilda Swinton

TWELV magazine has released its second-ever issue with an editorial entitled "Ice Queen", which includes a original dress made entirely of ice. As you do. Ice sculptor Takeo Okamoto created the gown, and was apparently inspired by Tilda Swinton, who also stars in the shoot (but sadly doesn't wear it).

The ice dress apparently weighed 242kg, was constructed by three people in a freezer and required 13 people to move. The TWELV team had only 30 minutes to photograph the dress on a model before it melted. TWELV might be in its infancy but it's carving a bit of a niche for itself when it comes to creating dresses made from weird crap. Who can forget the McQueen tribute created from 50,000 gummy bears in its inaugural issue.

Check out the ice dress below. Cool? Ridic? Let us know what you think.
