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

We see you winning, go for it girl!

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.

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.

While Duck Brand will, however, not declare the winner of the contest until July 21st, Manker’s gown has undeniably gained some grounds. Over 12,000 people have liked the Facebook page she launched to showcase her work, with users reaching from across the globe, including Mexico to compliment her work.

The images on her dress, which includes a virtual graduation paid a tribute to her classmates and other seniors who weren’t opportune to attend a regular graduation.

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.

While the teen had her hairpiece saying ‘Separately together’ her ensemble also includes an anklet that reads: ‘This too, shall pass,’ as an encouragement that the pandemic will eventually end one day.
