Teen Makes Prom Dress Out of Gum Wrappers

A Texas teen has found a unique and cheap way to look great at the 2004 prom. Anna Childress, 16, started collecting gum wrappers last year to make her prom dress. She originally wanted to make the world's longest gum wrapper chain but it would have to be more than 21 miles long so she opted for the dress instead. It took 2,300 wrappers to complete the dress and the matching earrings

Thirty-five year old Petra Verkiak offered to go with Toby to his girl ask guy winter formal. Toby has initial misgivings, but decided to go with the Playmate and enjoyed a fairy tale evening.
