When prom time comes around, the malls fill up with boys and girls trying on suits and beautiful dresses. Flower shops are bombarded with customers who need the perfect corsage or boutonniere. Prom time is a time honored tradition that has been enjoyed by generations upon generations. It is something that teens don’t typically take too lightly. Well this couple has broken the mold and instead of shopping at a mall for their outfits, they took to their local hardware store and stocked up on Duct Tape. You heard me right, Duct Tape.
These two made their prom outfits entirely out of Duct Tape!
Their prom theme was the Great Gatsby so it was quite fitting that they chose a roaring 20’s theme.
Everything from her headband and his bow tie to her purse and his shoes were made entirely out of different colors of duct tape.
The couple says that the project took 59 hours and 12 rolls of tape to make!
I’m getting sweaty thinking about this but they sure do look awesome!
The white trim they used on their outfits is actually glow in the dark Duct Tape!
They did this in hopes of them each receiving a $10,000 scholarship to their school.
Here is the purse, the headband, earrings, a cell phone case, the boutonniere, bow tie and shoes. The detail is pretty incredible!
This is all for a scholarship so quite a few couples entered the contest. Here are a few other contestants below.
Yes these two below are completely duct taped! They actually spent 386 hours and used 43 rolls of duct tape!
I had to do a double take when I saw these and I’m still shocked at the talent, time, and creativity that went into these. And glow in the dark, it doesn’t set much cooler than that. I’m proud of these kids for the effort that went into these. I can barely tape up a present properly, let alone make an entire outfit! Good job kids.
