Girl Makes COVID-Themed Prom Dress Using 750 Meters Of Colored Duct Tape

A high school student is going all viral after designing a COVID-themed prom dress made out of colored Duct Tape. Peyton Manker, whose high school career was cut short by the global pandemic, recently heard about a contest named Stuck At Prom, held by Duck Brand, an American duct tape package supplies and home products organization. 

Feeling the need to create a dress themed around the deadly virus, the gown which is mainly blue and covered in COVID-19 related photos took an estimated forty-one rolls of tape.

Spending nearly 400hours on the design over a 4month period, Manker went on to create accessories for the gown, including a purse, an arm bouquet made from toilet paper rolls, a round shape of the virus jewelry and a face mask which reads a description: ‘Flatten The Curve’ amidst others.

There’s A Lot Of Things That Can Be Done With A Duct Tape, Including A Prom Dress

The main concept of the contest is to design a dress or tuxedo using Duck Brand’s Duct Tape and to wear it for prom for a wining prize of $10,000 scholarship.

Accordingly, the photos of essential works paid a tribute to those working every day on the frontlines while the photos of people running away signifies the world running away from the deadly virus.
