Ecouterre isn’t a fan of Saran Wrap or its clingy, plasticized ilk, but we can’t help but be enamored of these Marie Antoinette-style wigs by designer Kate Cusack. Crafted entirely from the common household film—we’re pretending she gleaned her supplies from the aftermath of a block-party potluck—the wigs are a testament to the power of imagination. “There is an exciting ‘a-ha’ moment when someone realizes that there is more to my design then they initially expected,” Cusack says. “I create polished, elegant work that the viewer can appreciate in a serious way, but then when the viewer notices whatever the object is made out of, it surprises them and brings a smile to their face.”

    Does Kate accept donations? I have a friend who just moved, and the movers were overly ambitious with the plastic wrap. It is CLEAN!
    We are sure eco conscious and can’t stand the idea of sending it to the dump!
