Duct Tape Prom Dress: Teen Explains How She Made Hers (VIDEO)


"When I walk, I sound like a plastic bag walking around," high schooler Kristen said of her DIY prom outfit.

This makes sense, considering the dress is made entirely out of duct tape.

Watch the video above to see what the dress looked like and to learn exactly how she made it.

The whole getup may have been 30 pounds, but the dress -- covered in tons of handmade blue, green and white butterflies -- looks awesome. The teen used between 60 and 70 rolls of tape for both her dress and her date's suit.

"I would love to go into art for clothing, fashion design," Kristen explained. "I love fashion, I love clothes. This was fun, it was a good experience. I think if I could do this again I'd go bigger, better, crazier."
