Gum Wrapper Prom Dress

I wish I was this cool in high school.  And by cool, I mean willing to let my dork flag fly loud and proud. 

High school junior Elizabeth Rasmuson made her prom dress out of gum wrappers and even made a matching vest for her boyfriend, Jordan Weaver.

Elizabeth’s mother, Dawn Rasmuson, told local television station KIMT, “I think it’s really admirable for her I mean she’s a junior in high school and in today’s world a lot of the girls are worried about fitting in; they don’t want to stand out for wrong reason so it’s really cool and so unique.”

Elizabeth and Jordan have been collecting Wrigley’s “5” gum wrappers since last August to make this happen.  My only complaint is I can’t seem to find a big, blown-up photo of the dress.  [via]
