The inspiration for these outfits was originally nature and flowers - however, as the design came into existence it became more of a "Willy Wonka meets Todd Oldham 80's/early 90's" vibe, as my uncle Daryl described it. Using only solid colored duct tape made it possible to create original patterns: the dress, pants, and vest have a striped gradient that is also included in the pinstripes on the jacket. The tuxedo stripes are repeated on the side of the dress and pants, the back of the heels, and on the lapels of the jacket. Some other details to enjoy: the green detail on the neckline of the dress is small rolls of duct tape patched together with (you guessed it) more duct tape! The corsage is metal wire with feathers and flowers attached. The bow tie is a real, tie-able tie! The open-back detail is four separate layers double-sided and cutout. To make a seamless design, the dress is taped shut above and below the open back. Thanks for voting and we hope you like it!
