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! Hosted by none other than our Masquerade's own TD0013!

To give the judges time to deliberate, entertainment will be provided by Tom Tuerff. Later in the convention you'll see him MCing the "Talk Nerdy To Me: A Byte of Burlesque" shows on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. You may have already heard him at shows throughout the Valley; folk festivals, horror conventions, burlesque shows and a little radio show called Dr Demento

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!)

Ohh look, a Princess Leia! She made it a mini-dress, but it's adorable.

(and then, after reading that, you'll think "Yeah, but how do I make one of those sweet Musketeer hats? Me too! Here ya go... )

Plus, the biggest question of all answered by Mental Floss: Is it Duck Tape or Duct Tape?

Titles awarded will include:
Most Amazing
Most Beautiful
Most Humorous
