Synchronicity Hatsune Miku Shoes
Hey everyone! Here's a super duper easy tutorial for Synch Miku's shoes that I can't seem to find anywhere online. There's probably a dozen or so different ways to make her shoes but this is the method that I will be posting. :)
STEP 1: Reference Pic!
STEP 2: Gathering materials:
STEP 3: Take your measuring tape and shoes. First put your shoes on, then have someone help you measure out the amount of ribbon you need. Your measuring tape should wrap around your calf twice so the two ribbons make two X's in front. Then wrap it around again so it encircles your calf again, this will be the top where you tie your ribbons. Make sure to leave extra ribbon so that you're able to tie it in a bow.
STEP 4: The ribbon will be attached to the shoe's heel so that when you put it on it will be a bit under your foot as you can see in the pic above. All together you'll be using (approx.) 2 spools of ribbon maybe a little less depending on how thick your legs are. When you've finished measuring cut the ribbon and mark where the middle is.
STEP 5: Heat up your hot glue gun and glue the middle of the ribbon to the back of the heel just under your own heel. When it's glued put on the shoe, lace it up, and tie it. Make adjustments as needed. :) Repeat for the other shoe.
And there you go! A pair of Synchronicity Hatsune Miku shoes! :D The colored bottom of the shoe is optional. To do that get some teal paint and paint the bottoms of your shoes then seal them so that the paint doesn't wear away or chip. :) Thanx for being awesome and reading this post!
