You've heard of the Duck Tape prom dress competition- now there's a pop culture version! You've watched the Mythbusters make a boat with duck tape, armor should be cinch. Let your creative juices fly ... then cover them in tape!
(Oh, you haven't heard of it? You can check it out at the Duck Brand website)
To get you started, here's some tutorials and inspiration (Note- your costume need not be 100% tape, you can cover fabric or cardboard with tape. Please make it MOSTLY duct tape, though!)
