DIY Killer Comic Book Heels
Pricetag: Around £15
Time: Eight hours per shoe (I’m a perfectionist and I have big feet)
Brief tutorial under the cut.
This is by no means my idea, just my take. Based on this video. Costs more time than money!
Mod Podge: £5 from Hobbycraft
Vinyl Shoes: £10 from New Look
Comics: Already owned from Forbidden Planet ages ago
Cut up a few comics into jagged, odd pieces. Use Mod Podge and a paint brush to stick. Tackle the heels and edges first, keeping the lines nice and straight, then fill in the gaps with bigger feature pieces. You can try a theme if you like (Avengers heels anyone?) but I just went generic for my first try. Use thinner strips on the curves to avoid bumpage.
Save some fine cut feature words, speech bubbles and/or characters to really stand out as a final touch. Patience and a steady hand are key here! You can use a craft knife but I used scissors like a boss.
Fill in the platform or don’t, leave the heel blank or don’t. YOU ARE THE MASTER OF YOUR OWN DESTINY.
When completely covered, coat in matte or gloss Mod Podge and leave to dry overnight. Coat once more and leave for a day.
Wear. Be fabulous. SUCCEED.
