Sorry gaming die-hards, I’m not referring to “World of Warcraft”, but to “World of WearableArt”, or self-proclaimed “WOW” for short.  It is an international art/fashion/??? show run each year in Wellington, New Zealand.

This year, for the first time, the competition has been won by an international entrant, David Walker, a carpenter from Alaska.  His creation was a 17th Century ball gown, made entirely of wood.

The “Lady Of The Wood” was made from mahogany and lacewood with strips of maple and cedar veneer for the hooped skirt and a wig made from wood shavings.  A real smooth shave!
