While I think end-of-the-schoolyear dances are overrated rites of passage, I (temporarily) suspend my dogmatism to notice a Missouri teen who is making prom memories and fashion statements. In 2010, Maura made a colorful, ruffled prom dress out of Doritos bags. The following year, she designed a one-shouldered gown made from 4000 pop tabs. For 2012, the high school senior used 30 cardboard bags for yet another flairful creation.
What imagination, craftsmanship, and patience can accomplish!
