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!

San Antonio Whovians Assemble!

Last weekend was big for us geeks,  with the release of World War Z and the Texas Comicon 2013 in San Antonio and I am pleased to announce the Whovians were out in full force.

Living in San Antonio and being a Whovian can be challenging, my husband and I seem to have no one to talk to about our passion and have to reach out to our fellow Whovians spread amongst the stars and across the internet to connect.

Well last Saturday made us feel at home in our own city, seeing so many Who fans in once place was a very welcome change to our everyday struggle to find someone to share our stories and love.

We were finally able to talk to people about Dr Who (I had a fun conversation about Disney and Dr Who with one the merchants who was wearing a plushie Tenth and a yoda Disney pin) and there were even a few Doctors among the crowd.

Bowties are cool- 11th Doctor

Would you like a Jelly Baby? 4th Doctor

This is my favorite a switched gender 10th and Rose, but I LOVE the Tardis hat most!

If you were looking for a guy in a union jack, here he is!

And the scariest Dr Who species ever invaded the convention, so whatever you do, don’t blink!

So okay guys, I now you are out there and would love to be able to share all my Whovian geekery with you, you have been seen so please come out and share San Antonio 🙂

I hope to be seeing all of you around!

Now on a side note, yes, I love Who, but lets be honest, I am a full fledged geek and do not love just one thing geek. So here are all the other totally awesome costumes seen at the comiccon that I love. I will totally be dressing up for the next Comiccon in October, can’t wait!

Have a great weekend all and I will share the rest of the festivities next week 🙂

Happy Birthday,  Kitty!

Happy Dr Who Wednesday!

Okay, today is not an official Doctor Who day but it is my Doctor Who Wednesday and I am sorry I haven’t done one in a while but I have been busy.

I mean there have been alot of things going on in the sci fi world that required my attention; Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness and the season finale of Doctor Who, so yep, I’ve been busy!

Speaking of the Doctor Who finale, here is an awesome digital piece that hubby created with the newest villain, the Whisper Men and one of our favorites, the Silence.

Silent Whispers

It is entitled Silent Whispers and I think it is pretty awesome, the Whisper men are pretty creepy but who do you think would win this showdown?

I mean the Silence do have the advantage, as soon as the Whisper men turn their back, the would forget that they were in a fight and then the Silence has the upper hand, lol!

I hope you enjoyed hubby’s newest piece of art, to comment on his art or buy a print, please visit redbubble.com or deviantart.com
