Is it just us, or are teenagers getting more creative every day? Instead of simply buying a graduation dress, 17-year-old Canadian Kara Koskowich created hers from math homework.
The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute senior used 75 pieces of old math homework and neon Post-It notes to make a one-of-a-kind grad ensemble. The one-shouldered frock even has cute tiers and a slight peplum silhouette. How trendy! Also, her best friend, Dorothy Graham, wore a flouncy dress made from plastic bags. Clever!
Koskowich tells Canadian television station CBC:
“For me, it’s not a big, spend your money, you have to look this nice, you have to fit into this mold of grad.”
Just like 17-year-old high school senior Maura Pozek, who designed several prom dresses using soda can tabs and paper bags, Koskowich didn’t finish her creation until the last minute. But while Pozek had trouble completing her dress due to technical reasons, Koskowich started making hers in March and just procrastinated, as teenagers are wont to do:
“I finished it the night before grad. I did most of it in the last week because I’m that kind of person. I procrastinate.”
Nonetheless, the end result was perfect, and Koskowich proudly shows off her dress in her Facebook profile picture.
What do you think of the dress? Are you a fan? Let us know in the comments section!
