Duck Tape Turns up at WonderCon with Cosplay Repair Booth

We like cosplay around here, despite the fact that I am not much for dressing up (I even shun pants). People who like to go to conferences like ComicCon or WonderCon are a bit more enthusiastic about getting dressed up than I am. The catch homemade costumes is that they aren’t always the most durable clothing items.

Enter the folks from the Duck Brand Tape. They teamed up with the Syfy’s Cosplay Melee to provide tape repair services up at this year’s WonderCon, offering to enhance or fix costumes at no cost.

They brought a wide variety of colors and finishes to take on any cosplay emergency at hand. These guys should consider doing this at every convention where there are cosplayers on hand.

Deal: Save 31% on FiberFix Repair Wrap

Duct tape is pretty versatile stuff, but it’s still not perfect. There are some surfaces it doesn’t adhere to well, and any moisture under its surface can be its mortal enemy. If you want the ultimate repair tape, you need to go for some FiberFix.

This incredible fiberglass tape is 100 times stronger than duct tape and watertight. It’s perfect for repairing everything from leaky pipes to cracked wooden handles and chair legs. To use it, simply slip on some gloves, soak the tape in water, apply, then wait 10 minutes for a powerful, permanent bond.

In fact, this stuff is so strong, they used it to tape together the roll cage on a car, then dropped it off a cliff. Don’t believe me? Check it out:

Now, I don’t recommend you try replicating this stunt at home, but it does demonstrate just how strong this stuff is.

You definitely need some of this in your toolbox, and you can grab a three-pack for just $12.99 in the Technabob Shop. That includes two rolls of 2″ wide repair tape, one 1″ roll, and the accessories you’ll need to ensure a solid and smooth fit.
