When you’re a fan, you’re a fan. Or perhaps when you take this amount of time and effort to craft a one-of-a-kind look for an event, you’re a bit more than just a fan. After all, when you make an outfit out of tape…it’s not likely you’ll be using it more than once – not easily, anyways.
Admittedly, they do look pretty great for being made out of tape. We sincerely hope they’ve got a layer of something like cotton on underneath all of that, though. If polyester binds heat, you can only imagine what duct tape does. It makes us too hot just looking at this picture!
Boost That Flame
Did you know that duct tape burns super slowly, and makes the perfect fire starter? All you need is your roll of tape, dryer lint, and some cotton. Peel off a 6-inch strip of tape and roll it into a little canister shape, about an inch wide, sticky side facing out.
Pack your dryer lint inside of the little tube, stuffing as much in as you can fit without opening the tape. Then, roll your cotton around the outside. Charcloth actually works best for this job, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can use cotton. Make sure to set aside enough lint and material to fill and coat as many pieces as you plan to make.
Hang it Up
You’ve got to have some serious talent to create something like this out of tape, but this person certainly does. They were able to create this wall art of Bryan Cranston’s character, Walter White, from the hit show Breaking Bad. The artist did an amazing job of bringing his face to life, too.
No matter how good you are, though, you’re bound to wind up with all of the uneven edges from piecing it together. Perhaps a very good artist could figure out how to blend them seamlessly?
This couple decided to get creative with their Halloween costumes and make some clothes they knew were one-of-a-kind. This pre-party photo shoot says everything – except what it is that they’re supposed to be, exactly.
Perhaps they’re carnies that have escaped their boss that forces them to work in the sideshow, fix the rides, and clean out the roach-infested port-a-potties and disgusting showers for more than 16 hours per day and less than $200/week, without any days off. Not to mention takes everyone’s vehicles away so they can’t leave on their own. Stay forever young, kids. Run! Run and never look back!
If a duct tape luggage tag isn’t going to be enough for you to pull your bag out of the lineup at the baggage check, you may want to opt for something a little more…extreme. Grab some bright colored tape (or dark, if you have a light-colored suitcase,) since you want it to stand out from the crowd.
Get creative when it comes to creating a design that’s truly unique to your bag. If you don’t necessarily have artistic abilities, you can always just make a giant “X” or checkmark. Or possibly even a smiley face, depending on your mood.
