Christina Truong of Salt Lake City is one of five finalists for the Stuck at Prom Scholarship Contest! Truong spent 17 hours creating a beautiful gown made entirely out of…duct tape.  Don’t believe it? Well, believe it because Truong could win $10,000 towards her college education at the University of Utah!

However, she needs all hands on deck to win. In order for her to win, EVERYONE needs to vote for Christina!

Look at this dress!!! You’ll probably have to do a double take because how in the world could that be duct tape?! She has such a niche for design, making sure to look at every detail. Seriously. Christina even made little flowers out of duct tape to embellish her shoes. How cute is that??

OF COURSE, she didn’t forget the corsage! Guess what it’s made out of? That’s right, DUCT TAPE.

Christina Truong said she didn’t want to spend an arm and leg on her prom dress, so “making a dress out of duck tape was the perfect solution!” She really knows how to slay on a budget because Christina only used EIGHT rolls of duct tape for the ENTIRE dress!

She said her dress was inspired by the “folkish ambiance and charm of the dance’s venue while also incorporating my own personal style.” One of graduted senior’s goal was to look “boujee but on a budget, so she “aimed to make it look like a real dress and not duct tape as much as possible.”

Christina totally nailed it. She made an elegant prom dress out of tape. Not only did she make a prom dress out of tape, but she also created an experience with her dress.

You can vote for Christina Truong every. single. day.

Support young and local artists! Especially when they’re trying to pay for their education.
