September 28, 2007 – Duct Tape Homecoming Dress

Claire has taken to heart the wide-wide world of duct tape with this application that I have not yet run across – the duct tape homecoming dress, with lacey frills.

Even the shoes are duct tape and lace. It kind of reminds of the old song by Don Henley and Stevie Nicks with the lyrics, “give to me your leather, I’ll give you my lace.”  Well, duct tape and lace are lot less expensive.  I’m not sure if Claire’s home-made duct tape dress was a statement against the excesses of high school dance outfits, or if her allowance forced her to economize on her apparel. She reports it was difficult to get off and on, but it held up quite nicely throughout the dance.

    I hope it held up the heat of the dance and wasn’t too
    adhesive when it was time to put it away!
    You are quite a creative woman!

  2. Claire needs to check out scholarships sponsored by the makers of duct tape. Our high school counselor heard they offer college scholarships for students who make innovative homecoming or prom dresses from duct tape.
