The amount of plastic in the ocean is creating unhealthy, devastating , and permanent changes in all levels of biology from amoebas, whales, reptiles, insects , and all animals including homo sapiens. The ocean fish that people eat now has plastic in all of it. The beaches now have micro- plastic beads mixed in with the sand. By 2047 Earth will be at the point of no return and all living things will either adapt or begin slowly dying out.
The costume was made from plastic garbage and netted food bags applied with a two-part medical grade silicone. The model also wore plastic hair extensions and I finished her look with alcohol based makeup.
