Instructables
Before we get started I want to make something clear.If you have not worked with duct tape alot you will most likely find this impossible. And you have to be very patient because sheat making is a really long process.

P.S. This is my first instructable and is also in Spl1nt3rC3ll's head to head contest.

Also this instructable will take you atleast over 5 hours

Disclaimer- I am not responsible for any wasted duct tape. Or hair. Or time. Or if your dissapointed that you cannot flex your arms while wearing it. Or if you make it too tight and you have to cut it off to get out.

Step 1: What you'll need.

3 Rolls of silver duct tape. ( 45 yrd )
Colored Duct tape. (optional I used Lime Green, Light Blue, and White.
Lots of patience and High-tolerance
An x-acto knife (or knife)
A pair of scissors.

Step 2: Making your base.

Picture of Making your base.
First what you need to Do is make Giant sheets of Duct tape that will fit one of your shirts on them. You make a sheet by laying the stick side of a peice of duct tape on the sticky side of another peice of duct tape. Make two of these.

Step 3: Cut out the T-Shirt shape.

Now that you have your giant peice of duct tape. Cut out a T-shirt shape. I would find a very well fitting T-Shirt and trace around it with a NON-Permanent marker. Then Cut it out. Do this for both peices.

Also it might be a good idea to make them WAY bigger then your shirt because this could turn into a duct tape straight coat if you do this wrong.

Step 4: Tape the shirts together.

Picture of Tape the shirts together.
You will not want to tape the shirts together by the sides. I needed to make mine bigger so I took peices of duct tape and layer thed on the sides and then coverd them up. This is hard to explain but if you need to make it bigger just slit the shirts down the middle and add more tape.

could you use a hoody instead of a shirt on step 3?

You could just it wouldnt be quite as practical. An oversized T-Shirt would be best.

So is the inside of your jacket colored too? Just curious.
Matt21497 (author)  micinski134 years ago
No
You said we see pics of your face :P
Matt21497 (author)  watermelonhead4 years ago
changed my mind. (= Going to keep myself unseen. Kind of like what alot of the users here do such as Berkin.
could you at least put it on and like cover your face?
Matt21497 (author)  pineapplenewton4 years ago
Sorry but I changed my mind about that. Because this is a free public website where anyone can find me.
That is VERY smart of you, especially if you are younger then, say 50+ (like me, who doesn't have anything to steal ;-) I actually do use many methods of erasing information about myself, too. Kudos to you.
I was going to do that (shoe pic) but Then i liked my frowny pic too much :D
i like my pic it represents me in an artsy way
MUHAHAHAHAHA
What the heck is your current pic a face without a nose?

Matt21497 (author)  Goodhart4 years ago
Thank you.
What about your profile thumbnail?
yeah, matt. Pretty hypocritical, hm?
Matt21497 (author)  watermelonhead4 years ago
That was then this is now. And besides that picture was from a long time ago. And I dont come onto Instructables much anymore due to the fact its gona all pro and stuff. And now it just bores me.
You depress me.
Matt21497 (author)  watermelonhead4 years ago
Dont go jumpin off no high building because of me.
*sigh*
Yeah, I don't know ''Matt'', but what other guy would he have a picture of on his profile.
Anyone can find you through any website, if they really wanted.
Matt21497 (author)  mg0930mg4 years ago
Yeah but you have to be a good hacker to get into some but like this any average joe can see me
They're going to find out where you live by seeing you...?
Matt21497 (author)  mg0930mg4 years ago
No i just would prefer not to be seen like lithiumrain for example
I will always refer to her as adrian or monk... :( and nova hawk as rocket or rs.
