Doctor Who Wednesday- Tardis Heel Tutorial

For hubby’s Doctor Who Birthday, I needed to look the part and what girl doesn’t enjoy some fun shoes, right?!

Today I will show you how to turn some boring pumps into some amazing Tardis shoes fit for any time traveling companion.

First get your supplies:

  • Blue heels
  • masking or painters tape
  • black & White acrylic paint
  • white paint pen
  • paint brush
  • nail polish remover (non acetone)
  • q-tips
  • clear sealant

I got these navy blue heels at Payless for $19.99 plus I had a bogo so actually $10, SCORE!

I took them home and lined them up on the coffee table and placed two pieces of masking  tape across them leaving a blank line about 1/2 inch in betweenDSC02074

Then I took the black acrylic and painted that blank space with the black forming the base of the police box sign.DSC02075

Once that dried I wrote “POLICE Public call BOX” across the black area, then remove tape when dry

shoe

Note: The  shoe actually shows “Police BOX” across both shoes in rest of the tutorial but I changed it. Now instead of the shoes being two Tardis, it is one Tardis across the shoes. I decided that looked better in my opinion but you can do it either wayDSC02077

Next for the windows of the Tardis, I took pieces of tape and went vertically across the shoe under the police box sign, then took more tape and went across horizontally to create window panesDSC02078

After the tape is in place, paint open areas with white acrylic paint and let dryDSC02079

The remove masking tape and clean up any area that seeped through the tape with q-tip and nail polish remover, being careful to only remove undesired paint.

Then spray with sealant,  let dry and prepare for your next adventure!

There you go, you are now ready to wear your Tardis heels out on the town at any time!

Haunted Mansion – The Clock Strikes 13

Disney Design Group created 2013 Posters for a 13 Poster calendar this year and one of these posters has me, the avid Haunted Mansion fan swooning!

It is the infamous grandfather clock which just so happens to strike 13!

The Posters are also incredible in the fact that there are TWO!

Yep, one for Disneyland and one for Disneyworld, complete with each of the Haunted Mansion represented in the left hand corners.

These are ABSOLUTELY amazing and I think they would be a wonderfully sinister addition to any Haunted Mansion collection.

In addition to the posters these pieces have also stemmed pins and vinylmations which will come out in September along with the posters.

The 2013 Calendar with the 13 images for DisneyWorld is available at the DisneyStore

For more information on the Posters for July and August check out the Disneyblog below
