Finished Shoes

I just realized that I never posted pics of the completed Grell Sutcliffe shoes! I basically went through the same process as I did for the red, except I taped off the red so that the brown wouldn’t come near it and I went ahead and painted the soles because I thought that the original off-white soles would look glaringly out of place. I also ‘dyed’ (it’s technically painting) the laces red with a Sharpie, and then thoroughly washed both to remove the Sharpie smell and to give them a faded appearance.

About greyrondo

My name is greyrondo. I've been a cosplayer since Fall 2006, and I've noticed that the best conversations I have with cosplayers usually involve the question, 'so how DID you do that?' So after studying costuming and making a closet's worth of costumes, that's what I'd like to help answer. Drop in and stay awhile whether you're a cosplayer or just a curious spectator; one of my musings is bound to be what you're looking for. If you have a question or something to say, leave a comment or contact me! I don't bite, I promise. View all posts by greyrondo
