Oak Grove couple wears duct tape to their prom

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - A budding costume designer from Oak Grove and her date to the 2011 senior prom sported some very creative outfits this April, that they made out of colored duct tape.

For their efforts, Kristin Zumbro and her date, Hunter Sullivan were selected as national top ten finalists in the Duck Brand duct tape "Stuck at Prom" scholarship contest.

If the couple wins the grand prize, they'll each receive a five thousand dollar college scholarship. Zumbro used the duct tape contest for her senior high school project and started work on the outfits back in January.

She said her date was very supportive of wearing duct tape to the prom. Zumbro hopes the contest will help launch her career in fashion design.

According to Kristin Zumbro, "Winning, that would be national recognition for costume design. I mean you can't get that very often on a resume when you are looking for work as a costume designer. It would mean the world to my future career."
