Cocktails anyone ?

By Nettles  
Took myself off to Leeds today on a mini shopping spree.
I saw this model in the window and just had to take a snap.
The dress was made out of cocktail glasses, plastic straws and cocktail umbrellas.
I managed to line the glasses up with the lines of the building's reflection from the other side of the street.
Hope you like my bit of fun.
THIS IS A MUST TO VIEW LARGE to see what the dress is made of.

Thanks for all your C & C's and for stopping to look.
