"It's kind of difficult getting into it," Spencer added, as he contorted his body to put on the coat.

"I look like a race car driver getting ready to start," he said. "Actually it's warm, but it's not that uncomfortable to be honest."

The first piece the couple decided to make was Rachel's dress.

"We bought a dress at Ross," she said. "We put it on me and covered it in Duck Tape, then we realized I couldn't get out of it. So we had to cut me out of it and then start from scratch again."

The couple started collecting tape for the project back in January. They had even asked Santa Claus for Duck Tape for Christmas.

"Our very first sketch was crazy," Rachel said. "It was like rainbow colors and zebra, but as we went on, we decided we wanted to go with sophisticated and realistic looking. We wanted colors that you would actually see at prom.

"That's kind of our theme for prom ... realistic Duck Tape prom," she said.
