Teen shocks teachers by arriving at prom in vampire coffin

Ammon News - Most teenagers opt for a classic, glamorous gown or suit for their end-of-school prom, but 16-year-old Abi Ricketts had other ideas to stand out from the crowd.

The vampire superfan spent one year planning a show-stopping stunt to surprise her fellow classmates - that involved a real-life wooden casket and 'funeral staff'.

Abi dressed herself in a black lace corset dress, lace tights and black boots, and rolled up in a 6ft-long coffin with her eyes shut and arms crossed.

After propping the coffin up on the red carpet, the self-professed goth metal head dramatically opened her eyes and 'rose from the dead' in front of a cheering crowd.

Abi, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, said: "Everyone was cheering and screaming and clapping. They were all gobsmacked.

"My teachers said that it was amazing, they had never seen anything like it and it would go down in history."

Abi roped in her dad Alan, 54, and 18-year-old brother, John, to dress up in all-black outfits and sunglasses as 'funeral staff'.

She shocked staff and pupils at Trinity Academy in Thorne when she arrived in a black Volvo XC90 to the song 'Year Zero' by Ghost.

John then solemnly opened the boot and rolled her out of the back of the car, to dramatically 'come back to life' in front of everyone.

Abi had discussed her kooky arrival with her 76-year-old grandmother, Margaret Ricketts, who sadly she passed away earlier this year.

"I've been into goth metal head stuff since I was four and it was an idea that I first spoke to my nan about," Abi said.
