Chris Colfer signs copies of his new book at Barnes & Noble, Los Angeles, July 26, 2012
Chris’ printed shoes from his latest signing at The Grove immediately caught our eyes, and we soon found out they were actually made just for him by a fan! The very talented dontturnitoff kindly shared with Fashion of Glee how she made them.
The base shoes were simple black oxfords from Asos. Then, pages from Alison Weir’s history “The Princes in the Tower” (Chris being a history buff and all) were decoupaged onto the back half of the shoes. Finally, the laces were replaced with electric blue ones by Cole Haan.
After making a pair for her son, who loved them, she decided to make a pair for Chris, and presented them to him at his book signing in Manhattan. There’s a picture of the finished shoes at dontturnitoff’s blog, here! What a fantastic project!
