And we lived beneath the waves in our yellow submarine

I've been customising shoes for, ooh, a good couple of years now. It's just something super fun to both make and wear. And although I've been creating them for other people for so long, I've only ever made myself one pair which were only a prototype anyway, so that doesn't even really count. I've never felt any particular way about this as I'm generally not one for wearing trainers, but the last couple of months I seemed to be pulling on my Converse more than usual, and it got me thinking about how it was probably about time I did myself a pair.

These are all done with Copic markers and a little bit of white gel pen. I'm very pleased with how they've turned out considering I mostly winged it. I'm pretty excited to wear these out and about, but as luck would have it it's mostly rained everyday since I finished them. Gutted. They'll stand up to a little wet weather but I don't want to take a chance so I'll probably end up hoarding these away until the sun comes back in spring. I think they'll look super cute teamed with a sundress and ankle socks.

(And as I was typing this entry Yellow Submarine came on my iPod of it's own accord, which pleased me far too much!)
