Thanks!  They only took about 30 minutes to make.  The long part was finding and cutting out all the images.  Gluing them on took less than 10 minutes.

I do have a fellow Star Wars fan's 50th birthday party this weekend...

That isn't even that long! I would have guessed it would take way longer.

And wear the GREAT shoes with pride! Go and show 'em off!! Grin Okay and have fun  Cheesy

Thanks!  I didn't have a chance to go to the art store to get Modge Podge (it's out of my way) and I had some Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish laying around from past painting projects.  I used that to do this as I remember having luck in my old art classes with it.  I do want to actually get a sealant spray to finish them off before wearing them out full time.

Love these! I especially like that they tell a story with one shoe as the battle between the Empire and Rebellion and the other shoe the Rebellion. Great job!  Smiley

Thanks for the comments everyone.  I actually got a chance to wear them to my friend's birthday party on Saturday.  I think they spent more time off my feet than on as people always wanted to see the detail of the shoes.  They all instantly got the 'story' on each shoe without me having to point it out, which felt great.  They were very comfy and didn't fall apart at all. 
The only thing I noticed, and had a feeling would happen, was the area where the foot naturally bends (the creases) is where the comics cracked.  I figured with normal wear it would happen, and it's not terribly noticeable unless you take them off an closely inspect them.
