The Wizard of Oz, Dark Red Metallic Ruby Slippers

replica movie costume

A pair of 1920's size 4.5 C shoes were modified by replacing the heel, resoling the bottoms, painting the interiors white, and replacing the insoles.  A line of grosgrain ribbon was adhered to the shoes along the base and under the sole, replicating the appearance of silk faille, and allowing something for the beaded overlays to be sewn to. These shoes then became the base for a dark red pair of replica ruby slippers that I created over the course of about a week.

The slippers feature many custom made components including Art Deco glass gems, heels, and rose montee rhinestones.
