Teenage coronavirus-themed prom dresses made of duct tape are works of art

Manker is not swayed by the fact that he won’t be able to wear his dress to the dance. Instead, she felt inspired to make a dress that “documents a part of history.”

Her coronavirus-themed dress featured many pictures depicting life during a pandemic. His vision for the dress began with wanting to capture his own experience. He represented his unforgettable senior year with passionate scenes of students attending virtual graduation.

Manker’s idea evolved as the pandemic continued to have an impact on people throughout the world.

“It’s not just middle school kids, not just America, it’s the whole world affected by the pandemic so I want to show that,” Manker said.

He did this by showing pictures of people fleeing from the giant corona virus to signify the world is trying to avoid catching disease. Another design pays tribute to frontline workers and people suffering from mental health problems as a result of a pandemic.

A high school graduate from Sparta, Illinois, ignored the details of his clothes. He completes his appearance with a variety of creative accessories including “flatten curve” face masks. Manker also makes jewelry, shoes and hair ornaments, “separately together.”

While Manker’s favorite creation is a coronavirus-shaped wallet, he believes that his anklets display the words, “This will also pass,” perfectly summarizing his message. He wants people who see his clothes to be reminded that “even though it’s not like that now, the coronavirus pandemic will eventually pass, everything will be okay in the end.”

Manker also wants to encourage positive enthusiasm with his work. He believes that “we can get some positive things from this whole experience and my clothing is an example.”

It would be difficult to know from looking at the photos of his work, but Manker said this was his debut as a duct tape artist. His previous experience was of making purses and small duct tape when he was much younger. Four months and 41 rolls of duct tape later, he managed to make something far more complicated.

As Manker prepares to leave for Southwestern Illinois College in the fall, he said the experience taught that “you can do many things with tape.”

Mrs. Manker post the dress to Facebook, where posts have been shared more than 254,000 times. Manker said “surreal” that his work was able to make an impression on people around the world who commented on the post.
He said that won contest, run by Duck Brand, will reward because “it means that people see all the positivity that I am trying to show them.”

Duck Brand will give $ 20,000 in cash scholarships to the winners in July.

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
