Night Vale Converse Shoes [custom painted]

So, I painted these shoes with Welcome to Night Vale motif.
The top two pictures are the right shoe, which features the logo painting and... the logo. Again.
The bottom two pictures are the left shoe, which features the radio tower, a black world government helicopter and the glow cloud (all hail).
Some parts could have been done better, but I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out.

Nice shoes! (All hail!) I only just started listening to WTNV (got through 35 episodes in one week...) so I'm currently looking for inspiration for some night vale themed art... And this is by far my favourite pair of shoes so far!

Seriously well done. Let me know how much they are. These were hand painted and I respect that and will pay for it too~ :)

How did replace the badge? I want to make my own pair.

The badge on this particular type of converse is glued on the fabric of the shoe. Due to constant wear, the glue was starting to wear off, so I just simply peeled it off, and glued a new one with the same size in its place. If your badge is sewn on, you could easily remove it with a seam ripper.

Where did you get the badge from?

I made it with fabric and one of those fabric tranfer inket paper thingies. So I just printed the badge on the transfer paper, tranfered it onto the fabric, cut it out and glued it on the shoe

These shoes are one-of-a-kind, since I painted them myself, and they aren't for sale (because I'm using them hahaha). But maybe, sometime in the future, I could make a few more to sell. Nod

Do you paint with acrylic or fabric and what seal do you use? :3
elveleven's avatar
I generally use fabric paint, which is what I used here. I also used fabric markers here and there.
I didn't use any sealants, because the fabric paint that I used holds pretty well, even when machine washed.
