My new custom shoes: Scribblenauts!!

   0

(where has the artsy fartsy tag gone? :[ )
Hi, I'm P-Dude. You may remember me from such shoes c-blogs as "My custom Watchmen shoes" or "My custom Team Fortress 2 shoes."


Anyway, it's time for some more customs, and I must say, these are my best yet! I went all out on these, buying ACTUAL Vans and not some PayLess knock-off, and using exclusively Angelus paint (recommended to me by KyozoKicks). It ended up taking me around 9.5 hours (straight!) from start to finish on these shoes. There are so many little details, and I wasn't going to let them just disappear!

As I say in all my posts, KyozoKicks is the one who inspired me in the beginning, and you should totally check out his newest pair as well, since they're from OddWorld, and word on the grapevine is that game totally rocks.

So without further stalling, I present to you, the Scibblenauts custom Vans!

Also, Direct Loans paper!

Now, I know what you're saying. Under all those "WOAH SO AWESOME DO WANT"s, you're saying "How in the world do you pick any 4 things to put on a shoe?!" Well, the answer is simple! I created these shoes for my girlfriend, and I simply asked her what her favorite things in the game were! She also helped me shop for colors, since I'm color-blind and I'm pretty sure she didn't want an all-brown t-rex or a slightly off-red Santa. There were originally supposed to be "wings" in the center, but I didn't plan for the tinyness of her foot, so they were canned. Plus, the Pegasus has wings already. I'd also like to add that these Vans are eco-friendly! According to the Vans website: "These organic canvas Slip-Ons are built with 100% Organic uppers and 20% recycled rubber outsoles." So not only do they look good, but they're good for the environment! Or at least, they didn't hurt it.

So feel free to tell me what you think, and if you want to see some pictures of some of the steps I took, head on over to my flikr!

I also like to read comics (trades), and my favorite right now is a toss up between Batman: The Long Halloween and Watchmen.

I make custom shoes, as you can see from my blog posts! Check them out if you haven't already :)
