new 'Idiot's Lantern' shoes!
I really wished I had taken before pictures, but they /were/ a pair of brown Mary Janes I modified into something similar to Rose's heels in "Idiot's Lantern". I knew I would never find appropriate, cheap heels to modify, but I remembered I had these flats in the back of my closet going unused and I would much rather wear flats than heels all day anyways. :P
First I ripped off the strap that went across; using fabric paint I then painted and repainted, and repainted, and repainted, until they came to a close enough match to the fabric of my skirt, I then did the edging with black paint. With some left over skirt fabric I constructed the bows. Right now the glue is drying (hence the pins), but they are so damn cute, I want to wear them all the time.
