Title: Ruby Slippers for Doroth-me - UPDATE: Full Costume Picarooney.
Post by: TheMistressT on October 30, 2019 01:04:49 PM
I made some old beaded flats into ruby slippers for my Dorothy (Wizard of Oz) costume!



I masked off the back, sprayed them with an oxide red primer that sticks to cloth, plastic, and glass.





Then I used the Krylon red glitter spray paint which seems to have worked a treat!



I didn't use the prescribed glitter topcoat, because I want to keep this cheap so we'll see how they look at the end of the night.

I made the dress (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452854.0) a couple years ago as a muslin to test a pattern.

UPDATE: Here's the whole kit and kaboodle! And Toto and The ManFlesh!

What a great use for an old pair of shoes! And, I love that they're sparkly in their own way without being all about the glitter!
