Glow-in-the-Dark Wedding Dress Is Made From the Silk of Mutant Silkworms

If you’ve been feverishly scanning Pinterest for the perfect wedding gown for your big day, then look no further. There’s always this glow-in-the dark wedding gown made from the silk of  mutant worms. For real.

Japanese scientists have created silkworms that produce silk threads in glow-in-the-dark reds, oranges and greens. Designer Yumi Katsura took these Franken-threads and crafted a wedding dress that would make any cosmic bowler shed a tear of joy.

Forget sweetheart necklines and lace backings, right? So 2012. When the lights dim for your first dance, astonish your guests with the glow of a thousand threads of freakish fabric.

Would you say yes to this dress? Or any glow-in-the-dark clothing, for that matter?
