The Detroit Free Press has published an entire gallery of prom dresses that have been made out of re-purposed newspaper. Sure, they may not be practical—presumably you'd have to be okay with ink rubbing off onto you in order to wear one and they would probably rip easier than traditional fabric—but the idea is pretty cool. Some of the dresses will actually be worn to proms, too, according to the Free Press story
