Teenagers never cease to amaze me, and today I mean that in a good way. Two Mississippi teens used their creativity to create their prom fashions. Kechantra Ward, who will be attending Kent State University in Ohio in the fall, and her date Jeffery Patton, made their attire and accessories completely out of duct tape for the Stuck at Prom scholarship contest.
Ward said the process took 28 rolls of duct tape and 102 hours.
The two Senatobia High graduates said their prom outfits were so unique they made the Top 10 of theStuckAtProm.com contest. They are in the running to win$5,000 each and $5,000 for Senatobia High.
Ward said they were inspired to create their prom outfits “from figure skating and antique skeleton keys.” They used black-, electric blue- and gold-colored duct tape to create their prom outfits.
“The swirls figure skaters make are portrayed by the curling of the skirt and earrings with a little wire and the design on the heel of the shoe,” Ward said. “We captured the intricate designs on antique skeleton keys with the cut-by-hand designs on the dress, vest, and shoes.”
You can vote for the couple at StuckAtProm.com between June 10 through July 8.
