My son is being Frodo for Halloween and needs to wear his costume to school to do a tie-in book report presentation on The Fellowship of the Ring. I wanted to make sure he could walk in his Hobbit Feet and they weren't terrible tripping hazards. Here is what I came up with: The Hobbit Sneaker Smiley What do you think of my crazy creation?



here is what I started with. They are are called Funny Slipper Feet and I got them online for about $10 then cut them up, painted them, attached to Van-style slip on sneakers & wigged them. I'll post the whole costume when done. I also sewed a cloak for him Smiley



Here are some WIP and action shots... I still had one finished when i took pix

I felt like Jame Gumb - Dr Frankenstein - Hellraiser at this stage, looking very creepy about now lol The zip ties are holding things together while the glue dries.
