These outfits were designed and created for the 2013 Stuck at Prom competition, hosted by the company Duck Tape. The prom dress and suit are created entirely out of duct tape in a design that evokes victorian opulence. 120 rolls of multicolored duct tape went into creating a full ballgown, corset, and tuxedo for the designers prom night. The decor on the jacket had to be hand cut from large stickers created by layering tape over wax paper. Even the accessories were created or accented with tape, including a top hat, cane, bustle, and shoes. After finishing the designs and submitting to the competition, it was narrowed down to ten finalists, and then down to three. This design won on the national level and included a $15,000 dollar prize. It is now being displayed at the Duck Tape Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
