|Duct Tape Prom
(left) Jodie Cox, with her date Mike Holt, in their duct tape prom formals. It took 3 weeks of strenuous labor and almost 6 rolls of Duct Tape (Jodie doing most of the work, Mike testifies). Jodie and Mike made large sheets of Duct Tape material then she created them from patterns engraved in her mind. Jodie’s formal was constructed by weaving strips of gray Duct Tape to create a checkered look. Mike’s tuxedo was sewn in strips to give it a striped look.And his vest was created using basically the same technique as was used for Jodie's formal. This time smaller rolls of gray, black, and white, strips of Duct Tape were weaved slightly at an angle giving it the look you see. His bow tie was made of gray Duct Tape then accented with black Duct Tape.

Andy Rondeau (above) covered a hideously ugly necktie with duct tape to create this babe magnet. Good thinking, Andy!
Duct Tape Tie #2
We think that parochial schools everywhere ought to start allowing their school apparel to be made entirely out of duct tape.
