Well I decided that for birthday this year I wanted to get all dressed up. Being a "crafty geek" I decided comics were to be my theme! I originally had a plan to make a costume and see if anyone figured it out, but.......I had a pair of cute shoes that I got on sale years ago but had never worn. Black suede, but one had been on display in a california window, so it was a little bit browny looking next to the other, thus crazy cheap. I always thought I'd re-dye them at some point, but never got around to it. Digging through a box I came across them and had an idea. I decide to make them comic chic. I dug out some comics that I was willing to cut up - this was truly the longest part of the process, my inner golem coming out as I muttered my precious over the comics, unwilling to cut into their beauty.... Then I went and bought copies of the ones I thought were good, as I never did find one of my own that I was willing to cut into
I changed my mind over and over and decided to pick just art by one particular artist (Michael Turner) I grabbed the modge podge and my scissors and here we are!
(The mark insde is from the price tag being stuck on for 4 years)
Them be sexy justice league shoes ladies and gentlemen!! We've got Superman, wonder woman, batman, supergirl, green lantern, black canary, vixen, hawkgirl, green arrow, black lightning and red tornado. I added the red ribbon too!
After all that I saw pictures of little comic covers at the back of another comic, in the editor letter section and I figured my fingers should match my toes...
The close up is a bit blurry, but the actual little covers are super detailed, and clear. I have Justice league of America covers, Batman, Robin, Green Lantern, Justice Society of America, etc... I modge podge'd them on to fake nails and then clear polished over them
So much fun, I can't wait to go out!!!! Weeeeeee!!!!!
