This can't really fit into any of the listed categories, so here it is. My prom dress for this year, along with accessories. Included in this Soda-Tab Dress Set are as follows: 1 dress (diagonal hem cut, strapless, zip-front, chained corset-back), 1 underdress (black velvet, stitched with bottlecaps, mid-calf length, longsleeve), 1 pair of shoes (high-top sneakers, made to look like Converse. Starbucks bottlecaps are placed where the Converse logo would normally go), 1 small purse (Just a little clutch, 1 small cell-phone or ipod pocket in the front, clasp closure, chain strap and chevron mesh trim), 1 messenger bag (The only piece still in the works, a shoulder-strap bag to carry books or whatnot. Large paperclip and safety pin strap, clasp closures), and 1 hat (bowler, chain chevron mesh trim). I'm aware the hat looks stupid with the brim flipped up, I didn't realize it was flipped when this photo was taken. Oh well. There is also a jewelry set that belongs to this set, wth several interchangeable pieces of different themes, including a choker, 5 different bracelets, and 4 pairs of earrings. There are Rainbow, Christmas, and Normal themes.

All parts are interchangeable depending on the occasion. (you wouldn't wear a messenger bag to the prom, but you might use a clutch).

All of these, (minus the messenger bag) are currently located at the Allentown Museum of art (Jan11,'10) and will continue to be, possibly as late as March. They are a part of the Scholastic Art Awards, and The museum has asked me permission to leave them there longer as part of a 'go green' display they are holding.

This is so freekin' cool!!! I went to a (Sorta) prom essentially barefoot :)

Your creativity rocks!

I kinda think it could have done without the hat, though.

(BTW, the whole outfit reminds me of chainmail)

I have just recently been informed that this piece has been awarded a gold key by the Scholastic Art Awards, meaning it will be taken to New York, to compete against other artworks from around the country. My art teacher told me this morning, and she gave me a hug. =D
