Exclamation Homestuck help?

Ok, I'm going to do a Trickster!Jane cosplay and I can't seem to find any shoes that aren't $40 converse. Does anyone know of any shoes that look like converse I can buy that come in pink? Please not anything more than $25 I can't afford expensive shoes. These are the ones I was looking at (but of course I didn't realize they're kids shoes joy) http://www.payless.com/store/product...ayName=Gi rls
maybe something similar to that? as long as it has the rubber tip so i can paint it green :P
or maybe if you did this what you used for her shoes?
any help is much apreciated thanks ^_^

Try looking for knock-off Converse. Even if they're not pink, you can paint that type of shoe and seal it for cheap!

I got Mossimo brand white shoes at target for about 11$ and painted them yellow for god tier john. They hold up very well and are comfy even without laces, but they aren't hi-tops if thats ok. They come in a lot of colors too. Theres so much going on with a Trickster cosplay people probably won't pay much attention to the style of your shoes.

i'd say just check ebay, or buy regular white canvas shoes from target or something and paint them (for my god-tier john, i used sharpies all over although i wouldnt recommend that, use acrylics with a seal or fabric dye) ;;w; if you fit kids sizes, thrift stores seem to have a lot of pink hightops for kids heh
this is great for really really really bright pinks, if thats what you're going for;;;
