Duct Tape Prom Dress - The market of prom dresses is has gotten bigger, with teenagers always wanting the best looking dress. But now some couples have decided to opt for another way, thanks to a contest that makes them design their own prom dress with duct tape! “Stuck at Prom” is the name of the contest, and it had 215 entries; among the finalists we have Maris Blanchard and her brother who decided to go with my favorite, the “Alice in Wonderland” style. The prize is $6,000 plus $3,000 to the school.
Teens across the nation recently hit the designer boutiques in order to spend exorbitant amounts of money on spring prom-wear. Not so for some couples, who opted instead to vie for scholarship money by entering a contest to design and create prom outfits out of colored duct tape…who knew? The contest called Stuck At Prom, had 215 entries from young couples all over the country who were willing to take up the challenge. Among those making it into the Top 10 are Rachel Cunningham and Billy Oliver, who attend Elyria’s Midview High School.
Maris Blanchard and her brother are also among the finalists. She created a queen of hearts dress and her brother fashioned a Mad Hatter ensemble. They hope to win the $6,000 cash prize, with an additional $3,000 awarded to the winner’s high school. What would she do with the money? She’d go to art school.
