Adventure Time

My Best friend and fellow crafty person was up today for a visit from Saint John.  We decided to get crafty and follow a tutorial online for making custom comic book shoes.. Now these are far from done, but its a start.

It starts with a pair of shoes and an old comic book.  Now being the nerd that I am, I was not about to sacrifice any of MY comic books, but my friend still had a Free Comic Book day Adventure Time comic, and since I love Adventure Time, that suited me fine.

So here are the toes. Finn and Lady Rainacorn (and Princess Bubblegum).

The outside of the Lady Rainacorn shoe. Featureing a chimney cleaning gone wrong, BMO the computer, Marceline, the vampire queen and princess bubblegum.

And the inside of The Lady Rainacorn shoe. Mostly Finn, Jake, Bubblegum and BMO.

And the inside if the Finn Shoe, with Finn and Jake, the Adventure Time logo and BMO (again)

And the other side.  Which has mostly Finn and Jake, and a special guest appearace from LSP (Lumpy Space Princess) who is my fave.

I still have to add a few extra layers of sealer, and some ribbon to hide my rough edges, but I thought I would share our adventure in making comic book shoes.  My Friend by the way, made Sailor Moon shoes. :)

The tutorial we used can be found here.

  1. These comics shoes are fantastic. The Adventure Time illustrations remind me a little bit of Real Monsters, which is also very cleverly drawn.

    By now, I suppose you have seen Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Cruise 2013 collection... but if not, you should see it because there are some great Lolita looks.
