2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / My Halloween Reconstructed Bridal Shoes. on: October 27, 2009 06:56:29 PM
Okay,So I wanted to make some bridal shoes for my halloween costume. So I enlisted the help of my mom and found some white shoes in the back of her closet.

There was a stain on the side of them, and some scuffs and what not. So I went to Home Depot bought some spray paint, should of went elsewhere for cheaper stuff, but oh well.

ETA: Here is the inspiration pic

Here are the shoes,  Smiley


These were during the process, and I was trying to figure out if I wanted more rhinestones.



Here is the final product...



Needless to say my mom wants them back now,  Grin

I might do these to another pair of old heels, post halloween.
