16-year-old Wyatt Cheatle unfortunately found himself without a date for prom, so instead of feeling down about it, he had an even better idea to make himself feel better!
The teen decided he could be both partners for his date instead, in this day and age being able to express yourself in any way you want, why not?
So Wyatt came up with a half dress/half suit outfit and took himself to prom. Love it!
This is probably the best solution to a ‘i have nothing to wear’ situation, don’t you think?
Wyatt from Rochester, New York, created his outfit after he and his family were initially joking about him wearing a dress.
“I decided to go myself, ’cause frankly it’s easier than finding out who’s going with who, or who’s not going. So I figured I’d be my own date, since I know myself better than any other person. I figured I’d have a good time.
With a helping had from his mother Kelly, Wyatt created the perfect solution outfit.
“We went to Goodwill and picked up a bunch of different dresses to see what we could put together at home, and a nice shirt and black pants. My mom’s a genius.”
It’s safe to say Wyatt’s mother Kelly was very proud of her creative, thinking out of the box son.
She share the photo saying:
‘My son’s date for the prom was all right’
‘So my son was flying solo to the prom, and decided that he’d be his own date. One thing led to another and the week before the big event, he decided rather than going with a boring old suit, we’d split the difference and send him in a half suit/half-dress.’
‘After a mad dash to the local thrift store, lots of cutting and rearranging, we were done. Didn’t quite have time to find him shoes to match, but there’s always senior prom hahahaha.’
One person commented:
‘That’s a young man with positivity and confidence. What a great idea. Took creativity and talent to put together. Well done.’
