Can too much glitter kill you? ♪



I say it can't!

But I didn't get a complete diagnosis of this matter yet, so there's no way I could guarantee this for you.


The above picture may already be a hint and if you didn't guess it already (or seen it elsewhere), I've been quite crafty again! Once more with shoes - creepers to be even more specific.
Within the past weeks I simply couldn't keep my hands still, even drawing is a piece of cake these days, how weird! Is this a sign? Did aliens visit me to inject me creative energy? So far there is no answer to this but the results make me happy.

Painting a pair of creepers was actually a thing that has been haunting my mind for quite some time but I never found the right pair for this as I already saw the finished shoes right in front of me, I knew exactly how they were supposed to look. Then a few months ago I finally found a proper pair on eBay (which is now out of stock, sadly - but maybe the keywords can help to find a similar one) to get it started.

Almost half a year ago I already made a cheap Photoshop edit with my old creepers to visualise about what I had in mind:




Of course they didn't turn out exactly like this - after all my exact idea was slightly different.
So here is the final result of them:




This is what I meant when I called 'death by glitter'!
In person they are even more shimmery and glimmery, I love it so much. And I was surely very much content with how they turned out in the end.
For these I basically followed all the steps from my recent tutorial, just in case you were wondering. The only thing that's different here was the glimmery topcoat I made by mixing transparent fabric paint with loose glitter.


And since I felt like pictures weren't really enough to show just how much they sparkle, I prepared two gifs as well as a short video for you to show you the shoes in motion. Please bear with me, though, I'm by no means good at filming or editing videos but I tried my best.




Hope you enjoyed this sparkly journey!
See you soon~
Mio ♥

  9. i think they're cute, although i'm more the fan of
    the original look of the creepers ;D
    but the glitter one suits your fairy kei style better.
