I cobbled together my outfit in 45 minutes, pleating a trashbag and using electrical tape to strap a Forever 21 bag to my chest. Some of the other dresses were amazing though, like this one of artfully pleated newspaper, and a carefully constructed cardboard bodice.

Some poor guy tossed his can in the trashcan, and I heard a few people giving him shit.  Classic, I like that not recycling can be a party foul.
