{r2d2: the shoe edition}

Hullo, friends!

I have something totally fabulous to show y'all.

Are you sitting down?  Good.

Ok, prepare to be swept away with awesomeness...

R2D2 (which, for those of you who have been deprived of classic space operas, is a little droid in Star Wars) shoes.  I think they're pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. 
(Also note the adorable R2 action figure in that pic.  Isn't he the cutest?)

I saw the idea of glitter-R2 shoes on Pinterest (you can follow me at and after pulling out the thrifted glitter shoes I posted about a few weeks back, I tweaked the idea some and managed to make it work out. 

They were really rather easy to make!  The blue is just painted on with acrylic paint.  It turns out, the glittery surface is really easy to paint on.  I started out using tape to mark out the areas and such, but that ended up being too complicated for me, so I just went free handed.  The black outlines are just black permanent  marker.  And the red buttons are little sequins :)

If you'd like more info on how they were made, just let me know :)  After finishing them I had the realization (think: nightmare) that I should probably add some sort of seal to keep the color from coming off. I'll have to see about getting something.   

What do you think?  I'd love your opinions :)  I'm really excited to try something like this again!

Much love to you all <3
