The Dundee Wearable Art contest returns this weekend and organisers have promised a bigger and better event than ever.
Showcasing the work of local designers in unique fashion, the contest challenges entrants to create a piece of art using the human body as their canvas.
Based loosely on a massive event in New Zealand which 50,000 people attend, the quirky competition is back after a successful first outing last October which saw Timothy Taylor Ockenden walk away with first prize.
Here's a few pictures from last year to give you an idea of what to expect:
In addition to the 24 contestants battling it out on stage, organisers have promised a more performance based event and have spent hours working with the designers and performers in rehearsals to make sure things are "kicked up a notch."
A four act show that corresponds to the contest's four different themes; olde worlde, technology, environment and open section, will also be part of the proceedings.
"I cannot wait for attendees to see what we have in store for them," said Claire Dufour, who organises the contest with Lauren Herd and Caitlin Skinner.
"We’ve benefited from amazing support from local businesses as well as the general public, and we took full advantage of the generosity and expertise of our sponsors to ensure that everyone; artists, volunteers and attendees enjoy the experience."
Judges this year include Sara Robertson, a lecturer at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and Annie Marrs, Project Coordinator UNESCO City Of Design.
They will announce the competition's winner after all of the contestants have showcased their work.
"We aim to promote multidiscipline arts and collaboration from participants at varying stages of their careers including designers, visual artists and hobbyists," said Clair.
"The freedom of approach in wearable art means all sorts of different people with a wide variety of inspirations can take part. Celebrating those individuals and their work is what makes [the contest] so unique."
This year's contest was crowdfunded and is once again being held at Dundee Rep's Bonar Hall and takes place on Saturday, September 26, from 7.10pm.
