At first, we did not realize how difficult it was to work with duct tape, but that did not stop us from creating our masterpiece. Everything is entirely made from duct tape; the earrings, shoes, corsage, bow tie, EVERYTHING. The suit consists of a jacket, vest, and pants. I could not decide on whether or not to make a short or long dress, so I had the best of both worlds with the detachable skirt. Our inspiration came from figure skating and antique skeleton keys. The swirls figure skaters make are portrayed by the curling of the skirt and earrings with a little wire and the design on the heel of the shoe. We captured the intricate designs on antique skeleton keys with the cut-by-hand designs on the dress, vest, and shoes. The color choice is a representation of a deceased family member. Black is for the dark emotions felt, blue is representation of the sky, and gold is representation of Heaven. Overall, this process was extremely overwhelming and time consuming, but great experience.
