Oshun told BuzzFeed that she was initially on the fence about attending the dance, but she ultimately decided to go, and had to make her dress at the last minute: the night before.
“I didn’t really have an idea of what the dress was going to look like. I was worried it wasn’t going to be finished," she said.
Oshun didn't crumble under the time crunch. She bought a whole bunch of purple tulle for $15 and got started, chronicling the whole process on Twitter.
