Yeah, my friend made Kairi shoes, all she did was take a pair on slide on sneakers she owned, painted them with many layers of fabric paint and then took the tightner thingies out of the bottom of a pair of paints and glued them on.
And the skirt i like skorts. It's a pair of shorts with the flaps over them giving the skirt look. I think my friends actually found the skorts, dyed them and then added on lace to trim the flaps. I'd really ahve to ask though, I wasn't there for the constuction of the skirt.
