Shoes that are wearable (for the most part)! This is babby's first pair of "pointy toe" shoes and they are Chinese so sizing is a bit snug even though I ordered a size up. I'm trying to break them in a bit before Katsucon. We'll see how this goes. My toes are trying to rebel, methinks.
I wanted an icy look to the shoes so I decided to layer materials to add some depth and dynamics. The photo quality doesn't really do these justice, the layers combined for a very cool effect. That said, I had to trim the center points down a bit so that they didn't stab my feet as I walked. Close though. Sorry the focus is rather derp, I was using a mirror that I placed on the floor and trying to focus the camera. This was the best photo of the series I attempted to shoot. LOL
Molded friendly plastic over the toes and heels.
Drafted the ice edges, traced patterns, and trimmed the plastic pieces down.
Painted blue glitter base over the plastic pieces as well as to the sides of the shoes (originally black).
On the plastic bits, blue glitter mesh and wider-weave silver mesh were added.
Pieces secured to shoes.
