Glitter Bowling Shoes!

Added Dec 17, 2011

Nashville, Tenne...






My mom gave me her old pair of bowling shoes because they didn’t fit her anymore, and they were all over beige… ewww. So I saw the blog post on here and it got my creative juices flowing :) I wanted to create a 1950’s feel, thus the Pink Ladies pink. My birthday is this month and I am going bowling so I’ll be wearing these, and now I just have to make a cute bowling shirt!

    I LOVE THESE!!! Amazing what a bit of glitter can do! I’ve been thinking of something to do with that tutorial as well. Thinking… Thinking… GOT IT! Tap shoes!

      I’m not sure how much my teacher will warm to the idea first day back at class! Too much possibility of glitter all over the dance floor. Maybe just the heels… I will come up with a way of getting it done! Possibly for our end of year concert…

      Yeah… I just wore these bowling for the first time and glitter was everywhere! I’ll have to give them a few extra coats of the acrylic spray :/

      Or… spread the glitter love. Bit like bread crumbs.
