I'm new to Mod Podge and the Mod Podging of shoes, but I had a couple of extra issues of "Black Canary" and had to put them to use.  Before you ask, she's a superhero in the DC Universe and pretty much pure awesome.

I got Mod Podge, sealant, and a $13.00 pair of heels from Wal-Mart. 

Before:



And then I spent a full night cutting out pictures from the comics so that I'd have plenty of options of what to put on the shoes:



Some of them were obviously too big, but I wanted to keep my options as open as possible.  I podged, I placed, I podged, and after about 3 hours of effort, I had some good-looking shoes.

After:



And my favorite part:



I freakin' love that panel.

You can see a whole set of pictures on my flickr:

And I have a post on my craft blog with a poll to see what people think:

Once they dry, I'm sure I'll wear them every day I can.

I love them!  Grin I really need to make some Comic shoes. Specifically either Batman or Joker or Harley Quinn shoes!

And I noticed the Rorschach poster as well. I have the same one.  Wink

That is amazing. I tried to do a skirt out of comics once but I ran out of patience and comics.

They look great. Is Mod Podge waterproof?

It's not, but I slathered the shoes in acrylic sealant, and I think they'll hold up well.
