|plastic shopping bags and old beads|
The talent was amazing. Hair and make up was done by Mary Kay volunteers and a local Hair dresser that I missed the name. The runway was lit and the 5 judges are professional artist/designers, with a DJ running the music.
Above creation the girls used paint sample chips for the bottom, the top is saran wrap and the rose was created by the girl on the right using melted plastic spoons
Above left, she used plastic garbage bag for top and the skirt is entirely made from coca cola cans.. the gores are the inside of the cans. The little girl is wearing a dress made from left over beads that were thrown from the Desoto Parade, she and the designer gathered them and glued together.
The dress above, she used only what she found in her fathers tool shed, the top is a plastic bucket, trash bags and old netting for the rest.
The wedding dress created from large white trash bags, and an old net dress.. there were 15 but my photo were poor quality so I gave up getting photos. After 2 hours I had to leave and at this time do not know the winner. will update when I find out.
