Newtown High School senior Maggie Wruck and her date Kollin McDonald of Stony Brook, N.Y., decided on a Batman theme for the NHS Senior Prom, held this past Friday, April 25, at the Matrix Conference & Banquet Center in Danbury. Maggie donned these shoes, and I hear she customized them herself, hand gluing roughly 10,000 rhinestones all over them, including the Batman insignia. Kollin followed the theme, wearing a Batman bowtie and cufflinks.
