“Wizard Of Oz” Meets Haute Couture

“Storytelling” is an exhibit that went up in Dublin last month. Design duo Harmless Creatures recreated The Scarecrow (made of hay), Tin Man (made from hand-shredded cards) and the Cowardly Lion (made of VHS tape) from “The Wizard of Oz.” Each costume took over 40 hours to create and were “assembled like a suit of armor, protection against a world where everyone else has the brains, the heart or the courage,”says the Harmless Creatures website. God, I love this. It’s so haunting and poignant kind of like the story. After the jump is a video that accompanied the exhibition. [Buzzfeed]
