The End of the show

As the end of the semester is near, students are busy studying for finals or finishing up their last projects of the season.  I, for one, am thrilled that this semester is coming to a close.  The last few projects I ended up doing were pretty cool, and I enjoyed creating them.

The Trashion show:TRASHY

Boy was I glad when this project was over!  It was a lot of fun and I learned so much about design and putting together a piece that I could wear for at least a couple minutes to show off.  Trashion Show Gown

This is Lorena and I after the show.  The relief of it being over and us surviving was overwhelming and probably what made for our big smiles.  She used plastic bags to make a red carpet gown.  I used trash bags for the skirt and cardboard mixed with duct tape and newspaper to make the top of mine.

It was a tough and challenging project that took a lot of time to only get a few seconds of glory.  Overall it was a fun project and a great way to end the semester!
