A week or so before Christmas my boyfriend alerted me he was purchasing me a present (we usually don't exchange holiday gifts). So the day before christmas eve I took it upon myself to paint these for him. He'd requested falcor shoes several months ago... and I never quite got around to it.  You can't see in the pics, but they are also extremely glittery, this was not intentional, but that's why I didn't paint stars on anywhere except the back, which has our favorite constellation, Draco, on it.

I have seen many, many painted vans-esque shoes, and I have to say that those are probably my favourite!
I feel like the obvious thing would have been to paint him flying across the shoes, but I love that you made him
appear to be wrap around under the shoes as if you're perched ontop of him : )

Also, OT, but is that a R.O.D icon?

They are amazing! I'm glad I found the link to these on Twitter, otherwise I would have completely missed them!
I wish I had your talent, I'd make something similar to myself in a heartbeat!
