Doctor Who "Something Blue" TARDIS Wedding Shoes!

Doctor Who "Something Blue" TARDIS Wedding Shoes!
 The perfect addition of blue and total Doctor Who Geekery to wear!
Easy to DIY!

 You will need:
Blue spray paint
Clear acrylic spray paint
White and black acrylic paint
Shoe clips
White fabric
Blue ribbon
Hot glue/gun
Paint brushes
Shoes that fit you!
 These ones have a low heel and are comfy...and they were cheap.
 Stuff grocery bags inside the shoe to keep overspray
off the inside of the shoes.
I used Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover in Deep Blue Gloss.
One of my favorite colors!
 Do a couple of light coats.
Then remove the plastic bags and let them dry.
 While the shoes are drying you can make the bows!
I used old sheets.
I didn't even iron them...because you scrunch up the bows anyway.
Start with 2 rectangles...about 4 by 8 inches.
Take the top edge and fold it over a so it rests about half way.

 Add a line of hot glue on it.

 Fold the bottom edge up onto the glue...making a tube.
 Add a zig zag of glue in the center of the tube.
 Fold over one edge to the center.

 And the other edge.

 While the glue is still warm, careful scrunch up the center of the bow.

 Pinch until cooled.

 Then hot glue the ribbon on the backside...
Wrap it around and glue it in place.

Use scissors instead of touching directly with fingers...that's the best way to burn yourself.
 Let cool.
Then hot glue or sew the shoe clips on the backside of the bows.
 Then they can clip on the back heel of the shoes or near the toes!

Okay, back to shoes!
Bust out the black and white paint and a thin paintbrush.

 I free handed the whole thing.
It's rough and sketchy and wonderful.
Don't be nervous...just let out that inner Van Gogh.

 Fill in the black rectangle.

 Add some white windows...
 Add the lettering...
Police Box
First...leaving a space in the center for Public Call

Then repeat for the other side!
 Fill with plastic bags again...and spray with clear top coat spray.
Then let dry completely!
Add the bow clips on and you are ready to rock the who shoes!
 Something old
Something new
Something borrowed
 Something Blue!

 Enjoy your painted shoes!
 Please note: paint chips and scuffs occur.

 Check out these ones too...if you want to mix it up a little!

What for a nice idea! I would love to do it myself. But I am not sure about the shoes I can use: Is it possible to use shoes made out of Upper Leather? Thank you
