This is How a Redditor Made Her Sister Expensive $6000 Prom Shoes At Home for As Cheap As $40
I am certainly no expert on fashion but online retailers sell glittery prom shoes for quite an expensive price so there’s hardly any chance of getting them for cheap. Like magic, all good things in life come with a price ofcourse.
However, that doesn’t have to be the case if you are making stuff at home. That’s right; Redditor eithical_rhyme made her sister expensive $6000 prom shoes for as cheap as $40 at home.
Working with cheaper shoes
First of all, the Redditor acquired relatively plain looking shoes that cost merely $25. To be precise these are Steve Madden pumps that she found on sale on MJM Designer Shoes.
Painting them blue
She began to paint them blue, not exactly the same shade that is visible in the original picture but that was still intended to be the final result.
Taping the blue shoes
Once the paint she applied had dried up, she carefully taped up the shoes.
Adding red paint to the mix
She then applied some layers of red acrylic paint to the shoes along with a couple of layers of polyurethane. The application of polyurethane added enough shininess to the shoes.
Gluing different-sized rhinestones on them
Next up, she assembled rhinestones with sizes ranging from 3mm to 6mm. She carefully placed these one after another to ensure proper coverage of variably-sized rhinestones across the shoes. In order to make sure they remained in their place, she used super extreme E-6000 glue.
Expensive prom shoes ought to have a lot of glitter and shine so she continued to glue more rhinestones till the shoes were fully covered with them.
This is how the prom shoes look after all the hard work she put into them.
Some would argue that the home-made prom shoes actually seem prettier than the original ones with a hefty price tag. In case you are wondering, it took the Redditor over two months to make these filthy expensive prom shoes for this cheap.
