Sandra-Lee Prewitt, a sixteen-year-old goth in the U.K., thought she would have to go to prom in her grandparent’s car, and not a limo like her friends.
Her grandmother, Mrs. Prewitt, who organised the surprise, said: “A few weeks ago, we were talking about the prom and I joked that a hearse would be better than a limo because of her wheelchair. She said ‘can we, can we?’ but I didn’t mention it again.”
But her grandmother surprised her and arranged for a black and ivory horse-drawn hearse to take her. The drivers were both dressed in black, and the carriage was pulled by two Friesian horses.
Ms. Prewitt wore a black lace dress, black gloves, giant-black boots, and carried a black purse with gold skulls on it.
As for Ms. Prewitt’s reaction when she saw the horse-drawn hearse —
This story warmed my dark heart. It is so sweet to see an entire family accept Ms. Prewitt’s goth sensibility. More endearing, is Ms. Prewitt’s ability to see humor and beauty in such a dark aesthetic given her health issues.
