Replica 'Wizard of Oz' Ruby Slippers

Recently, one of our customers named Mark created a pair of replica Ruby Slippers from "The Wizard of Oz" using a pair of vintage 1930s size 6.5 pumps he purchased from Vintage Vixen.  Here's a "before" shot from our clever customer:

Original 1930s Shoes from Kate Winslet Movie
Beautiful shoes, but not ruby slippers... yet! 
The shoes had been previously used as prop shoes in the HBO series "Mildred Pierce" starring Kate Winslet.  Mark created a hand sewn overlay for the shoes made of thousands of vintage Belgian wine metallic sequins, and crafted bows made with vintage ruby rhinestone montees, bugle beads and ruby jewel stones. He lined the shoes with vintage kid leather.  It took Mark almost 5 months to create these replica shoes.

And voila!  There's no place like home... and nothing more fabulous than these iconic shoes.
You can see a video of Mark's creation at YouTube under "replica ruby slippers".  Dorothy would be proud!
