Winter Trends: Frozen Pants

With the blizzard we had this weekend, I was interested in seeing if there was any news about snow sculptures or other forms of art. I came across several mentions of Minnesota resident, Tom Grotting, who has been freezing his pants and leaving them out for the public to see since 2013.

To get the jeans to stay in this form, he first soaks them in a bucket of water. Then he hangs them up and manipulates them as they freeze. Finally, he places them outside in the elements for bystanders’ amusement.

You can take a look at more of his frozen pants here.
