In January 18-year-old Peyton Manmaker from Illinois went on a journey to make a prom dress entirely out of duct tape for a scholarship contest.
Unfortunately after weeks of working on her dress, her prom was canceled because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
But Manker used that as her inspiration.
Manker decided to make a coronavirus-themed prom dress.
It took four months and 41 rolls of duct tape.
Her dress depicted multiple images of life during the pandemic.
She did this by designing images of frontline workers, people suffering from mental health issues as a result of the pandemic and showing people running away from a giant virus to avoid getting it.
Manker even made accessories like in anklet saying, “This too shall pass” and a “flatten the curve” face mask.
The contest is run by duct tape maker “Duck Brand” which is awarding 2-thousand in cash scholarships to winners in July.
Manker says winning the contest would be rewarding because it will mean people saw the positivity she was trying to show.
