CHICAGO — Talk about scene-stealing. Natalie Williams and Chris Eaton arrived at the Oak Park-River Forest High School prom in outfits made entirely of duct tape. It may sound like the latest look out of Antwerp, but Williams and Eaton actually spent nearly 50 combined hours making her strapless gown, his tuxedo and their accessories. They hope to win Manco Duck Tape’s “Stuck at Prom” contest. But things got just a little too warm. “We didn’t do that much dancing,” Williams admitted. “Chris was hot, and my dress wasn’t as stable as I thought.” For more prom coverage, see pages 4 to 6.
