Cosmetology students at Calhoun County Career Technical Center in Jacksonville, Ala., participated in a team-building exercise involving designing and constructing wedding dresses from toilet paper — a total of six rolls of the ignoble tissue. Teams of four or five created six dresses, and in the process they identified their personal strengths and weaknesses, such as who’s a good listener or who’s good at execution of ideas. Based on the theme “Halloween Bride,” the winning entry (above) is worn by Tia’nna Lauderdale. Her team includes (left to right) Shaina Hicks, Kelsy Johnson and Kirsten Arenth.
