4 piece tux

This was for Halloween at my school. I figured I should try something different, and finally win our costume contest. Believe it or not, I lost to a mummy, but that's not the point.

Supplies and Tools:
- Black duct tape
- White duct tape
- Old pair of shorts
- Purple duct tape
First, I made a giant sheet of what I call duct tape fabric. Then, I cut it don to size. Next, I put holes in the appropriate places for sleeves. After, I folded the top edges back to give it that tuxedo look and added a collar. Then, I put two pentagon shaped pieces at the top to shape it like a jacket. Next add the sleeves and the jacket is done.
The vest is much easier. First, make a sheet of duct tape fabric big enough to stretch from your head to your neck and wrap around you. Then cut sleeve holes and leave a half inch thick strand to hold it over your shoulders. Make a diagonal 4 inch cut in the top right and left corners. If desired put a button on it to hold it around you. Now, you have a jacket and a vest.
Making a tie is rather easy. First, make a tie shaped piece of duct tape fabric. Then, If desired, cut pieces of colored duct tape in half, the long way and place them at an angle on the tie to create stripes. to crate a strap, make a half inch strand of duct tape fabric and re-apply tape to strand when you want to wear it.
To create pants, make a piece of duct tape fabric log enough to go all the way down your legs and wide enough to wrap around your legs with some space. Then, take your old shorts and tape the duct tape pant legs to the shorts about three fourths of the way down. Try them on and cut them so they are the length pants should be.
To make the "shirt" (which by the way is not really a shirt) hake a piece of duct tape fabric as big as you did for the vest. this shirt does not have sleeves because they would not fit in the jacket sleeves. just cat arm holes and tape it closed when you want to wear it. Finally,pat yourself on the back because you have just finished a custom tailored duct tape suit.
