It all started when a bored 4-year-old girl decided that her store-bought dress-up costumes just weren’t cutting it anymore and she wanted something different. Her mom, Angie, suggested that they make a dress out of paper and her little girl, nicknamed Mayhem, was all for it. They started out pretty simple but soon became more and more complex. Mayhem has an eye for fashion, that’s for sure. Check out some of her most-creative gowns. Here, a 4-year-old fashionista makes replicas of red carpet gowns.

Instead of spending hours watching tv or playing on an iPad, Mayhem creates these dresses with her mom, almost every day.
