Here's an artist that likes to go against the grain - making incredible life-like clothes out of wood.

Fraser Smith, from Natchez, Mississippi, is a master woodcarver who tries to fool the eye with his intricate sculpting skills using a art technique called trompe l'oeil.

He's made almost an entire wardrobe including bomber jackets, leather jackets, quilts, baseball caps and basketball shirts.

Nice and creative. I'd like to see him carve a dress that at least reaches the knees and a business suit with a power tie.

Do you not think it would be awful noisy wearing his creations?  I wouldn't want to be walking about creaking... or worse, rustling.  You can be arrested for rustling.  (Only saying)
