Starburst Prom Dress

Its that time of year again, and although I will not be attending prom, this gal really caught my eye.  I’m sure you have all heard of some weirdo guy that has hand-crafted his “duck tape tuxedo”, but Wisconsonite Kerrin Frey takes home tailoring to a whole new level!  High School Senior, Tara Frey and her boyfriend Zane will certainly be the sweetest couple at their Candyland themed prom.  After 6 years and 5 failed attempts, Tara’s determined mother Kerrin finally finished her masterpiece of Tara’s Starburst wrapper prom dress.  But wait, there’s more!  Kerrin also created a matching purse, shoes and of course vest for Tara’s patient boyfriend.

Although Kerrin and Tara contacted Wrigley’s and asked to purchase just the wrappers, they said no, leaving these crazy ladies no choice but to buy Starbursts by the cartfull!  Kerrin says that on Halloween she would give away full sized 14oz bags of Starbursts to trick-or-treaters, but begged them to bring back their wrappers.

Although, personally I think the idea of wearing a Starburst wrapper dress could be a sticky situation, you really gotta applaud not only the hard work and determination that goes into creating this dress, but also the courage it takes to wear it!

I just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo
