Saving Money on Prom

Zowie and Jake: Prom 2009My daughter, Zowie (a junior) and her prom date Jake ready for his senior prom. Look closely at the photo. She is wearing a duct tape dress and jacket that she made with her aunts. He is wearing a duct tape tux that his sister helped him to make. And yes, they are both wearing high tops.

His Theme: The Joker (I have no idea what the prom theme actually was.) Of course, he was teased for looking a bit like Barney.

Why are these two crazy kids wearing duct tape and high tops? Jake is trying to win a $5,000 scholarship.

Now, Zowie spent about $40.00 to make her dress. I know that I can go and get a beautiful dress on clearance at Deb in the mall for less than that, but she was crazy enough to do this for her friend.

  1. For all my daughters dresses since 8th grade we got all her dresses at dillard’s and they were 40-60% off. There are the best deals in the store if you can go.
