I made these for my partner Patty_o_furniture for the IYP swap.  She said her favorite book was the Sorcerer's Stone. So I used a movie poster for inspiration for the tops and filled in the sides with other things in the first book. And this is what I came up with

Oh. My. Gosh. These are so fantastically awesome. I wish I could make these. So amazing. My only criticism is that they aren't on my feet right now.

Can I ask what shoes and paints you used?

I bought the shoes at walmart and i used regular acrylic paint with fabric medium for flexability and then spray sealed them.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
