Frozen: Elsa Shoes by Stealthos-Aurion Frozen: Elsa Shoes by Stealthos-Aurion
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

Process: 
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.


DETAILS:
Base shoes Black GH+HM Pumps (some Chinese brand) - you can buy similar shoes on Amazon
Base material Friendly Plastic
Paint Martha Stewart Glitter Craft Paint
Fabric Blue glitter mesh + silver mesh.

This is incredible! How did you mold the plastic? I really want to make elsa shoes too by using molding plastic (maybe clear?). How did you do it?! It's amazing!

I used Friendly Plastic pellets which you put in boiling water. They turn clear when they are moldable and when you are ready, you just take it out of the water, roll it into a thin sheet, and apply over your base shoe. Beforehand I put some plastic wrap over the shoe so the plastic would not immediately adhere to the shoe. It is easier to paint and cut the shapes in the plastic when not attached to the shoe.

Wow! That's amazing! Thank you! I can't wait to try it!!!! Is it safe to touch it with your hands when it's melted or do you need tools?

It's marketed as a kid's craft material so it's very safe to touch. It may be a bit warm when you pull it out of the boiling water, but you do not want to wait too long or it will cool too much and you will have to put it back in the water. As far as tools, think of this as plastic clay. I rolled the plastic out and it would have been very handy to have a rolling pin. The only requirements would be a pot to boil water in (though I guess you could just keep getting more hot water) and tongs to grab the plastic while it is in the pot when you are ready to work with it.

It is the lowest risk craft stuff I have found, you really cannot permanently mess up. If you make something you do not like, put it back in the water and reuse it. I bought it from Amazon but it's sold either as Friendly Plastic or InstaMorph. Unfortunately, I have not found clear plastic beads. These turn clear in the heat, but when they cool they become white again, but if you paint over them it's fine. www.amazon.com/InstaMorph-Mold…

I saw them in person after you told me about the friendly plastic - they look frigging sweet!! We could always bring you nice fluffy slippers to change into if they are hard on the toes? :D

I love this idea. I actually have what I call my "bear paws" that I should wear for lulz. As long as no one sees my feet, it's perfect.
