Teen makes prom dress from duct tape

Now a finalist in national design competition

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 tells The Salina Journal the effort wasn't just for kicks: She and her date, Mark Aylward, could each win $5,000 scholarships and their school could get $5,000 too.
 
The winners of the contest sponsored by Duck Tape will be chosen through online voting that runs through July 11.
