Remember your prom? These kids will. They went to “Stuck at the Prom” and they made their prom clothes entirely of duct tape. Dresses, tuxes, shoes, purses, wraps (pun intended) all made of duct tape. Who knew it came in so many colors? Sponsored by Duck brand duct tape.

  1. What a great idea–a prom dress made of duct tape! When I saw the pictures, I was astonished at the variety of styles and the incredibly smart construction–I’m always cheered when I hear about creativity like this.
