|(left) Bev Schmitz came up with this Duct Tape Super Gal costume for a halloween party. She used three rolls on the cape alone. Unfortunately, the cap was so heavy that it limited her flying abilities, but was probably virtually bulletproof and impermeable to x-ray vision. Nice work, Bev|
|(right and below) Boston’s mild-mannered Tom O’Grady ducks into a phonebooth to apply the three and a half rolls of duct tape required to become Duct Tape Man, Defender of Freedom, Protector of the American Way!

|Soren E. (under the flying guy) becomes another "Duct Tape Man" at least once each year (on Halloween night). We think he should dress that way all of the time - he'd pick up chicks like crazy!
(I know 'cause my wife said so.)
(left) While not life-size, Clifford does a lot of crimefighting (on a smaller scale for inanimate objects, of course). With a gentle take off (ie. me throwing him across the room), he can fly for a good 5
seconds. --- Kirsten F., San Diego, California (Finally, a superhero to help "Mr. Bill".)
|Duct Tape Knight
(below) Scott Sippel knighted himself (with a little help from his wife) and is currently fighting crime on the streets of Dousman, Wisconsin (although his mobility is severely limited in cold weather).
|Duct Tape Repair Guy

|(above) From Wyoming: Duct Tape defenders of the Range! Duct Tape Men Erik T., and Luke G.. Tape on, dudes!
(right) We have no idea who this kid is, but he is ready to fight any axis of evil or broken stuff that confronts him. (below right) He raises his cape over his body and "POOF!" he's gone!
|(below) Frankly Duct Man (Frank B. L), prepares for duty. We love his cape liner: yellow and black duct tape. But what's that around his waist? Why, it's a clever duct tape dispenser! We'd suggest putting all of the colors of duct tape on it so you are ready for anything that comes your way!|
|Douglas High School (Oregon) sophomore Brian Bunch, wearing a ‘Duckman’ costume made out of duct tape, gets a last-minute fix to his belt from his mother, Joan, before the school's duct-tape fashion show. Bunch and Ben Beam, who was dressed as ‘Gooseman,’ won first place.
