Clothed in tinfoil, duct tape, plastic wrap, newspapers and colorful cutlery, models strolled down the balloon-lined runway Friday in the gym at Hall High School for the third annual no-fabric dress competition.
Emcee Sam Rizzo, president of Honorary Activities Club, introduced each model and designer, and read the listed inspirations that led to each design.
Designer Malcolm Bergagni’s handmade basketball uniform channeled his desire to win the $100 prize; Yessenia Castro designed three entries, including a dress made from newspapers and inspired by a love of journalism, one made from balloons and inspired by the movie, “Up,” and one featuring colorful plastic cutlery inspired by “dinnertime.”
The final entry presented — several teachers dressed in plastic leaf bags designed to look like pumpkins — was inspired by autumn.
The winner of the dress competition will be announced on Monday, after staff members tally judges’ and students’ votes.
The dress competition led the school into homecoming week, which begins with hallway decorating Sunday. Students from each class can decorate inside the school 1-3 p.m.
Throughout the week, students can dress up for a festive theme: Monday is superhero or cartoon character day; Tuesday, “nerd” day; Wednesday, ’80s day; Thursday, class T-shirts or red-and-white dress-up day.
Participants in the homecoming parade can line up at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the school parking lot. The parade will step off at 5 p.m. and proceed east on St. Paul Street to Power Street, north to Erie Street, and then west back to the school for a pep rally in the football stadium. The homecoming king and queen will be announced. Hall plays Erie-Prophetstown in football Friday. The homecoming dance is Saturday.
