Tourists gaped at six stunning wedding dresses displayed at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square on Thursday. The fashionable white frocks were fashioned entirely of toilet paper.

Six dresses were displayed at the Times Square "odditorium" and three winning designers squared off for the top prize of $1,000.

The judges from Ripley's Believe it or Not!, Charmin and Cheap-Chic-Weddings-dot-com crowned this year's winner, Katrina Chalifoux, of Rockford, Illinois. She spent two weeks creating a sheath dress with a raised flower pattern from molded toilet paper.

Terro Glover of Marlin, Texas was a second prize winner and Ann Lee, of Honolulu, Hawaii placed third in the annual dress competition, which just celebrated its fourth year.
