Toilet Paper, Duct Tape, or Trash Bags Anyone?

Need money for college? Enjoy being creative? DUCK brand Duct Tape has a $3,000 scholarship every year for the best prom outfit made of duct tape. Check out the rules at Stuck at the Prom. Then get busy sticking together the dress of your dreams. But hurry--contest ends June 8. And feel free to post your pix on our site, we’d love to see them!

Check out DIY Fashion and lovetoknow for the how-to on making prom dresses from duct tape.

And would you believe trash bags make elegant prom gowns? How are these pictures or this article for plastic-y inspiration?

Or what about toilet paper? These are wedding gowns but they could be adapted into elegant (if slightly fragile!) prom dresses.

How fun! I can't imagine wearing one, though.

I love what they've done with it, but I think I'd worry about it falling apart--especially the toilet paper. Just think of it dissolving in the rain.
