Two Sides Recyling Dress Comic Books

Actress Maisie Williams knows how to pander to her audience. The English ingenue, who plays the scrappy Arya Stark in the HBO hit Game of Thrones, arrived at Entertainment Weekly’s annual San Diego Comic-Con party on Sunday wearing a gown made out of recycled comic books. Created by Ryan Novelline, a mixed-media artist who once sculpted a dress from discarded Golden Books, the appropriately titled “Zam” gown combines graphics from Marvel’s X-Men, Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, and Takeuchi Naoko’s Sailor Moon, along with hemp satin, velvet ribbon, glass beads, and other repurposed fabrics.
