It's become popular in the past few years...duct tape dresses like these. Well now there are awards...read on...
Every year we hear about kids making prom dresses and tuxedos out of Duct tape, and this year is no different. A Kansas teen has earned a spot as a finalist in a national design competition with a prom dress made entirely from Duct tape. Brooke Wallace, of Solomon, says she spent more than 200 hours fashioning a western-style prom dress for herself and a suit for her date from 42 rolls of Duct tape. She also created a purse and earrings for herself and a bolo tie, lariat, gun and holster for her date, all from Duct tape. Wallace and her date, Mark Aylward, could each win $5,000 scholarships and their school could get $5,000 as well. The winners of the contest sponsored by Duck Tape will be chosen through online voting that runs through July 11th.
I have always liked necktie dresses like this one. Here's a site that tells you how to make one if you want.
