Heidi: How did you create the set? Did you have that wall paper specially made?

Renate: The wall was hand made, every single $100 bill (fake theater money) was hand pasted on four foam 4 x 8 boards along with the floor boards. It took an friend who is an experienced  fashion designer and knows how to  work precisely and patiently almost 2 days.

How did you construct the dress and affix the money to get such a perfect graceful hemline?

I made the dress by covering an existing bustier with bills, mostly by hand and for the skirt part I constructed one big piece of cotton fabric  like an apron. We sewed the fake bills on ribbons  and sewed the ribbons on the apron that we then just tied over a big crinoline to give it the luscious fullness and fall.
