Like every girl her age, Pendleton Heights senior Addi Rust dreamed of finding the perfect dress to wear to her high school prom. She went out looking for her perfect gown to wear to prom. While it’s safe to say she did find one, the price tag on the Disney-bound dream was way out of her financial reach. It had everything she ever wished for in a dress; complete with the right amount of princess flair and fairy dust.
However, Addi was on for a sweet surprise—thanks to her best friend and prom date Parker Smith. The Pendleton Heights junior put on his fairy godmother wings and got right to work to make sure Addi would have the most magical prom experience of her life. She was due to star in her own Cinderella story—thanks to her best friend and prom date Parker Smith. The Pendleton Heights junior put on his fairy godmother wings and got right to work to make sure Addi would have the most magical prom experience.
Addi’s fairytale began last February when she found her dream dress but realized she wouldn’t be able to afford it. “Parker, why don’t you just make my prom dress!” she jokingly told her best friend and the two laughed about it for a while. However, Addi’s little joke got Parker thinking. “You know what, I think I could actually make your prom dress,” he said. Parker was confident, he could make his best friend the dress of her dreams even though he had never sewn anything previously in his whole life.

“Quite a journey, but the first thing I’ve ever sew (a prom dress) has been finished, just in time for the ball! Not only did I get the honor of being the Prince Charming to the beautiful @AddiRust, but her fairy godmother as well, haha! I’m so thankful for her. (From scratch),” Parker tweeted along with the beautiful pictures of the pair on their prom day.
Parker started by drawing a sketch of the dress before moving on to the hardest part – teaching himself how to sew. Even though his grandmother was of great help along the way parker admitted to redoing parts of the dress a couple of times to make everything fit snuggly.
“I’m such a perfectionist that I was up adding more stones to the dress even the night before prom,” he said.
