Cosplay: Vanellope Von Schweetz Part 4

For the last two days I was working on vanellope's shoes.

This was my first time making shoes for cosplay
Here's my basic outline before I started 

Black and red flip-flops.

Used thick and thin (2mm) craft foams. Used masking tape to put the pieces together

Got myself some fabric to give that leathery shine to the shoe.
Traced the inside part.

Used hot glued
Kinda sad that I had to cut different pieces for the fabric. 
couldn't get that clear smooth look
when i know how to do that, i'm going to redo the shoes

Update: Anna (see comment below) asked to see more pictures on Vanellope's shoes.
Here are some pictures that were not posted before.
I hope these will help~

  1. do the shoes fit you?

    1. well i used a flip-flop to my size so yes it fits me.
      would this be the answer you are looking for?

  2. Would you ever make these for someone else and sell them?? I attempted to make the shoes and failed miserably. I'm a size 10 and would like to get a pair just like these!!

    1. I have never done a commission >.<
      but.... yea one day I will take up on commissions

      and oh no i'm sorry my tutorial wasn't detailed T-T
      maybe we can salvage it?
      Tell me, how can I help you salvage it??

  3. I think you are brilliant! I am going to be Vanellope for Halloween, but the shoes were puzzling me. (I'm knitting legwarmers, polymer clay for the hair candy, and making a skirt out of cardstock.) This is such fantastic inspiration. Thank you.

    1. Ah thank you! I wasnt sure how to do this when I started but I'm glad that I was able to help you out =D
      I made my hair candy with polymer clay too~
      I hope you'll have an awesome halloween!!~

  4. Another alternative for vanellope boots are short ugg boots. (I found super cheap knockoffs online.) You can paint or glue the 'candy stripes' on.

    1. That sounds like a great idea.
      If people don't have time to make it then I would recommend that too.
      Thanks for sharing!

  5. We had plans to stay at home to pass out candy but my daughter changed her mind and is set on being Vanellope for Halloween. Your tutorials have really inspired me and I'm less stressed about this project. Your attention to detail is right up my alley! The only things I'm not sure about are what do the inside of the boots look like? Do you have pic you can share? Do the boots fit over shoes or is the inside the black flip flop? Thanks so much...Anna

    1. Hello Anna,
      I am excited to hear that your daughter will be dressed as Vanellope for Halloween. I am glad that you were able to find my tutorials helpful. But without any further ado, I have edited this following post with the pictures that you have requested. I hope these are the ones that can answer your questions. If you need more let me know I'll be glad to help. And Happy trick-or-treating!
