In all of the time I've spent painting wedding shoes for all my wonderfully diverse and gorgeous brides I've not once been asked to paint skulls on a pair of shoes. Perhaps it's not a typically wedding theme yet skulls have been very fashionable in the last few years or so especially in shoes. Iron fist more or less based their whole shoe line and branding on skulls adorned with neon colours or diamonds, occasionally both!
Ever since Damien Hirst encrusted a skull with excessively expensive diamonds (which actually reached £38 Million at auction!!! Wowzers!!!) it seems the trend has become more popular than ever. The featured pair of shoes within this blog included both skulls, diamonds/dismantes and sunflowers as well as core flower blue bluebells. It was so much fun to finally be painting skulls on s pair of shoes I fully embraced the idea and made the designs as pretty yet contemporary as possible and here is the result.
Personalised shoes with a rock n roll feel for the bride.
I was also asked to paint lyrics on the underside of the souls which of course customised the shoes even more. I love them and I hope you all do too.
