Thesaurus Dress Sold To Ripley's Believe It Or Not


A Vancouver actor and model who made a dress out of pages from a thesaurus has sold the outfit to Ripley's Believe It Or Not.

Jori Phillips made waves last summer when her dress, which she cut and glued together for a costume at the Denman Island Readers and Writers Festival, went viral.

This week, Phillips announced on her Facebook page that the frock was sold to Ripley's, the entertainment franchise that features the strange and unusual.

"It feels like a fairy tale," Phillips told The Huffington Post B.C in an email.

The company is now campaigning on Twitter to land Phillips a spot on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which she has been trying to do since last year.
