Decked Out in Duct Tape for The Prom


What happens when you combine an industrious young man, an open-minded young woman and yards of duct tape? One-of-a-kind outfits for prom! This young man (along with friends and family who labored alongside him) crafted this colorful matching tux and dress.

Given the unique design, no need to worry about that “sticky” situation when another girl shows up with the exact same dress. Indeed, their fashion choice brings new meaning to the idea of “being attached at the hip.”  Can’t you just imagine them dancing together to Lionel Ritchie’s “Stuck On You?”

OK, OK, I’ll stop now. But, aren’t they terrific?!?!?

    How would you make such a dress?

    I don’t know the folks who made the duct tape prom dress personally (friend of a friend of a friend …), so I don’t know how they did it. But, if you google “duct tape prom dress pattern” there are several resources available. Also, I had ANOTHER friend pass along a picture of a similar dress from THIS year’s prom, so it must be catching on a bit.

    The dresses are quite impressive!
