Prom Queen from HellSupplies: Old bridesmaid or prom dress (the uglier the better) from thrift store; torn black fishnets, cheap tiara, eye makeup and bright-colored lipstick. Optional: Length of material for sash, glitter and glue.. Rip the dress in places and create a jagged slit part-way up the leg. If you want to create a sash, take a strip of white material that is long enough to go across your body. Fold it in half and staple or glue the bottom edge. Write “Prom Queen” on the sash with glue and then sprinkle copious amounts of glitter over the glue. Put on the dress, torn fishnets and tiara. Apply heavy, dark eye makeup and let it smear down your face. Put on bright lipstick and streak it beyond your mouth.
