Army of Love shoes

Post by Quincy on Wed Aug 31, 2011 1:32 pm

I thought I'd share what I've been working on. They're (clearly) inspired by Kerli's shoes from the Army of Love video and they will probably be part of a Halloween costume (and concert going shoes if they're sturdy enough). They're a work in progress somewhat.



Tutorial Here

More or less glue and flip flops. I can make a tutorial if you want, I haven't finished it's partner yet.

I added the link to the original post too for the tutorial: http://inspiredbybubblegoth.tumblr.com/
It outlines how I got to what they look like in the picture. I'm going to update it soon with the finished product ( I have one shoe 90% done) and how I got to that point.

^ I haven't finished because I kind of blew up my glue gun (never leave one of those suckers on for 5 days straight it doesn't end well) and I've been to lazy to go to town to buy a new one. They're interesting to walk in to say the least. they're really bouncy and kind of awkward because I'm not used to shoes that tall that lack an arch.. They're fun to jump in though... running in them is painful (well the falling part anyway)

Are they easy to walk in? Kerli says these bouncy platforms are very comfortable to walk in. Anyway, those shoes are amazing!

Yeah they're really comfortably. Hers are probably easier to walk in than mine because hers shoes are wider and therefore the platform is wider and more stable to walk in

I've done this before and sadly the gun didn't hold up after one hard walk so I'm looking for a more permanent method.

Mine haven't fallen apart yet, but I haven't worn them a lot... I ended up using this ridiculous glue my brother gave me that was industrial strength construction glue, he used it to mend tires or something, I think I'm going to make another pair soon these were kind of a test run, they ended up ok but they probably wouldn't hold up at a concert :/

Those are so amazing! I've been wanting to make my own platforms but I just had no idea how to even get started. Using flip flops was brilliant!

Oh noooo, the shoe goo didn't hold up? D: I was going to attempt platforms based on > this tutorial <, I wish I would've seen yours first because I already bought the fail glue!

Have you tried to make any more platforms since?
