The Wizard of Oz, Aged Burgundy Ruby Slippers

made from scratch movie costume

Another pair of replica slippers, made in a deep burgundy coloring and crafted with all custom made materials, with the exception of the vintage rose montee rhinestones lining the bow.  Several steps were taken to make the bows appear more aged, including the removal of several red rhinestones, the removal of some stones and settings, the addition of clear rhinestones that were painted red, and some additional sewing with a different color thread to mimic repairs made to the original bows.

The custom made components include:

Size 5C silk faille base shoes, crafted on a custom made shoe last with custom made reproduction Art Deco heel
Micro-thin deep red bugle beads
Art Deco vintage reproduction glass jewels
3/16" deep burgundy translucent sequins with an aging and flaked metallic treatment


The sequins used can look very old or very new depending on the lighting, and the custom coloring not only appears as burgundy but as a deep red or brown with pink and violet highlights.
