Vivienne Westwood's ANGLOMANIA WING that came out some time ago are also quite adorable
but girlfriend aint going to hurdle 200 bucks for a pair of shoes that don't cover them thick calves
I did wait a while hoping for these to come in a boot style ... but no luck
Some time later I discovered shwings attachable wings for shoes
That really got me thinking...
I could totally make my own
Originally, I was thinking of finding some poor unicorn/pegasus toy and snipping the wings off...
you sir, would make some awesome shoe wings..
but... I couldn't find any in my local thrift store that were of a decent size and color (that and the fact that I would be a unicorn killler I'M LOOKING AT YOU VOLDEMORT. SHAME ON YOU. )
So for my Actual DIY, I choose to use foam paper.
I bought two because one was a bit flimsy. You'll see when you go out and buy them.
Next, I made a draft design
Please excuse the ugly paper, This was just a scrap.
I did a mecca inspired design for an extra KABAM to my KABOOM
With the foam paper,
Then I drew my design on my paper and cut it out.
it would probably be better with pencil first then shapie. (I just had to be badass and draw it on with a pen first. Although, I suppose it kind of defeats the purpose. oh well, I still feel badass?)
next you should measure and mark the spot where your holes are on your shoe
then if your paper can fit under a hole puncher, I suggest you use that.
Chances are, they probably won't
you can carefully cut the holes out or you can take some eyelets and hammer them into your wings.
That is what I did and I quite like the result .
almost didn't look homemade.
Now you can do any sort of finishing touches and attach them to your footwear
