(NPR)   Girl makes prom dress out of corrugated cardboard. For previous proms, she's worn dresses she made from soda can pull-tabs and empty Doritos packets. And, yes, you should have a seat over there   (npr.org) divider line 194

i'd snack it.

She'd be covered in Dorito's dust...irresistible.
 
2012-04-25 09:34:45 AM  
So she has been to 3 proms already... she must be pretty easy.

Promiscuous even.

She looks fairly cute, but I prefer my women not be covered in garbage.

The second picture (I assume the soda can tabs?) actually looks pretty good though. She must've worked hard on that. And I'm sure her prom date worked hard on her later that night.
 
2012-04-25 10:32:27 AM  
Probably stick 75 cents into an open hole and she'll give you whatever you want, so long as you push the right buttons.
 
2012-04-25 10:35:15 AM  
I want to touch her.... With my thumb.....
 
2012-04-25 10:35:50 AM  
someone light a match, i wanna see what's underneath.
 
2012-04-25 10:36:11 AM  
I'd dive in her dumpster!
 
2012-04-25 10:36:18 AM  
I'm not too keen on the Dorito's dress, but the other two look quite well done. tl;dr but hopefully she's going into fashion or design.

She Recycles and Reused.

Look at these comments! You should all be ashamed of yourselves...

...I know I am.
 
2012-04-25 10:37:14 AM  
She's cute. Sounded smart on the radio too. Good for her. When I heard the lead in I expected an A.W. By the end of the segment I was convinced otherwise. I hope she succeeds in the future.

How many proms do kids go to these days?
 
2012-04-25 10:38:41 AM  
Is it just me or does she look quite old for her age?
 
2012-04-25 10:39:14 AM  
Yeah... We were doing this in the 80s, too.

It's so cute when the younger generations think they're being original.

That's the part of your brain that wants to put sex on her trying to argue with the part of your brain that doesn't want to go to jail.

Old enough.
 
2012-04-25 10:40:31 AM  
Good luck getting a job in education. Once your future employer sees that you've shared pictures of your dumpster-diving hobby online, they'll escort you off school property.

Seriously though, it's pretty creative. And I guess it's good to know she's funneling her energy into something like this and not getting all hopped up on goofballs.

James!: How many proms do kids go to these days?


i went to at least 3...can't really remember for certain. i went to one of them after i was out of high school. went to one my junior year (my gf at the time was a senior, but our school's prom was for jr & sr), and went to one in another town with 2 foreign exchange students. can't remember if i went to others though. get them confused with homecoming dances and sadie hawkins dances.

gawd i hate dances...don't know why i went to so many of them

All she needs is a copy of DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS and she'd be my
perfect woman.

/OK, that and larger wahoombas.
 
2012-04-25 10:40:57 AM  
17 is good to go here so I don't need a seat over there and yes I would bang the hell out of her.

There might not be anything in this world as off-putting as the smell of Red Bull.

Maybe the taste of Red Bull.
 
2012-04-25 10:42:15 AM  
Cute AND talented. Two great tastes that taste great together.

dude.. no way.

the vag could smell all nacho cheesy and you would not know if it was the bags.. or an infection.

WTFDYW: Is it just me or does she look quite old for her age?


I came in to say that, so it's not just you. In the first two pictures in particular she doesn't look like a high schooler, and in fact looks pretty hot. The pic with the Doritos dress I'm guessing is the earliest because she looks the youngest. It's also the ugliest dress. The other two dresses I actually thought looked nice in general, even putting aside their clever use of materials.
 
2012-04-25 10:42:45 AM  
Do want. Hey, in MI 16 is legal.
 
2012-04-25 10:43:30 AM  
Shame she isn't going into design - very creative.
 
2012-04-25 10:43:49 AM  
Why are these stories continuously in the news? I thought people stopped caring when that broad made the duct tape prom dress. And even then...
 
2012-04-25 10:44:12 AM  
not bad, would take her to Denny's after the backseat loving.

I might even let her keep the condom as a change purse, just to keep in the spirit of recycling.

18 does not magically make a person become an adult. there are many 16/17 year olds who look "older" like this girl. this girl IS very pretty and mature looking though. that cola can tab dress is quite elegant for what it is and really makes her look grown up.

Weird, I was gonna say she looks a bit young for the "have a seat over there" comment, usually that's reserved for jailbait that looks potentially legal.

JohnTuttle: I'm not too keen on the Dorito's dress, but the other two look quite well done. tl;dr but hopefully she's going into fashion or design.


Given the second dress I'd hold out for engineering, someone with the patience and nerd-level to make homemade chainmaille from scrap would go farking insane from boredom dealing with design undergrads.

//A relative of mine did stuff like this growing up, ended up working on nuclear reactors for a living.

nice pun
 
2012-04-25 10:46:32 AM  
She's dangerously bold, but whether she's the loudest taste on earth would require further testing.

bluehubcap: Shame she isn't going into design - very creative.


i know right? instead wants to condemn herself to a life of insanity, low salary, hard work, and dealing with derpy kids and even derpier parents. she'll be unhittable and 300lbs in 10 years like 80% of midwestern chicks and 100% of midwestern teachers.

She looks kinda trashy to me.
 
2012-04-25 10:48:21 AM  
I found the story kind of sad, she won't be pursuing her passion (which she obviously has some talent for) because schooling would be too expensive.
 
2012-04-25 10:49:42 AM  
Geez! isn't frowned upon to go to prom with your teachers? You say she looks old, what about the tuxed fella there? Got out on bail long enough to take his young thang to her senior prom

The dress is creative though.
 
2012-04-25 10:49:44 AM  
Does her boyfriend lack the Delta brain wave?

That dude she is with looks the same age as me. I graduated from high school in the late 90s so that's a little strange.

TNel: bungle_jr:

meh, the one after i was out of high school got too drunk too fast so "easy" could've potentially meant jail time and a record if she was so inclined to pursue it as such, so i took her home

the exchange students weren't interested in me, just didn't want to go alone. so that got me nowhere.

the other prom was my girlfriend of almost a year, so didn't need a dance

the other dances were even lamer

With any luck, the story being on NPR might get her some scholarship money. She deserves it more than some basketball player.

i believe the correct locution is "have sex to her."
 
2012-04-25 10:53:10 AM  
Say what you like, but she's clearly very talented and creative. Kudos to her.

And now available on Etsy for $450.
