Halloween is right around the corner… The TRICK you need to make any costume a TREAT is costume tape! Pro Tapes® provides two double-sided costume tape solutions: Pro® Costume Tape, and UGlu®.
Pro® Costume Tape: For Skin and Fabric
Pro® Costume Tape (also known as Pro 1502 or Pro Body Tape) is a skin-friendly, double-sided tape that’s also great for fabric. It comes in a portable roll, with a paper liner that’s easy to tear by hand.
You can wear Pro Costume Tape on your skin for hours without irritation. It removes gently, without tearing skin, pulling facial or body hairs, or disturbing makeup.
Makeup artists can really benefit from Pro Costume tape, too. It allows you to easily add embellishments (like gems, flowers, etc.) to your makeup design. With this tape, you can reposition or reuse any embellishments as needed. Just watch this demo by face painting artist Brook (owner of Kiwis Party):
Pro Costume Tape also has a strong hold on medium to lightweight fabric for fabric-to-fabric attachments, making it easy to “sew” your own costume with NO sewing skills. The tape removes gently, without distorting fabric color or damaging fabric threads or texture. It’s cleaner than using hot glue guns, and any changes you make are reversible.
We also recommend Pro Costume Tape for wearing face masks without strings or ear loops! It’s perfect for fabric-to-skin applications.
Pro Costume Tape is also great for:
- attaching wigs, hair pieces, toupees, faux mustaches and beards
- special makeup FX and embellishments like gems, florals, and prosthetics
- attaching masks and eye pieces easily to skin, without strings
- altering costumes, including dance and gymnastics costumes, cosplay, and more
UGlu®: Your Secret Weapon for Amazing Costumes
Let’s not forget about UGlu®! Although UGlu is great for creating amazing balloon and party décor, it’s also a powerful tool for creating and customizing costumes, accessories, props for cosplay and stage sets, and more!
UGlu is a removable adhesive glue in a convenient tape-like format. It’s non-toxic, acid-free, weather-proof, and waterproof. UGlu comes in a variety of shapes, like squares (“dashes”), rectangular strips, and rolls.
UGlu attaches easily to a wide variety of surfaces, including rough or uneven surfaces. Like Pro Costume Tape, it removes easily and cleanly – so you can easily assemble, disassemble, and re-use any parts you’ve “uglu’d” together!
It’s great for DIY costumes for kids and adults (especially last-minute ideas), but it works just as well for professional-grade costume and prop work for cosplay, historical re-enactment, renaissance faires, film, theater and more. UGlu is a costume tape that is safe enough for kids to use, but powerful enough for professionals!
