Gotta Watch: Strange prom fashion

It's that time of year again, prom season. While many are rushing out to buy the perfect outfit, others are taking a more creative route. They are designing their own prom outfits, and the materials they are using may surprise you.

Prom is as sweet as candy - literally – A Wisconsin mom thought it would be a good idea to design her daughter's prom dress out of Starburst wrappers. The entire creation took a total of six years to produce. The crafty mom also made a matching vest, shoes and handbag with the same material.

Dazzling in duct tape – An Ohio teen and her prom date found themselves in a sticky situation. The two showed up at prom decked out in matching duct tape fashions. Kelli Brinkman says she came up with the idea after attending a duct tape arts and craft camp with the Girl Scouts two years ago – and the idea just stuck.

Prom night's a wrap –The desire to make last year's prom night memorable led an Iowa girl to ditch the traditional gown for one made out of gum wrappers. Elizabeth Rasmuson lost count of how many wrappers she needed to complete the task but her boyfriend says she used at least a couple hundred to make her dress, shoes and his matching vest.

    It was a joke Mmmmm.

    Thomas Harris' Lechter is a fine sociopath...and Harris is a fine writer. I think "Silence" was the best of the series, though.

    Unfortunately, Albert Fish was all too real. And all those pins and needles! Yuck!!!!

    The pins or needles were Albert's best trick. Hard to fry.
    Also, the end of RED DRAGON (Harris?) is profound (to me), at Shiloh, re the brain's R-complex.

    Yep, it's Harris, but it's been so long I've forgotten the ending.

    Hard to fry. I would have thought it'd be easier.

    @Chartreux: lol. However, there are many designers who have their trademark initials/names all over their merchandise/accessories. Coco Chanel and Louis Vitton are two that come to mind.

    I hate designer ads on clothes. The only pair of Gucci loafers I ever bought didn't have the "G" buckles.
