Barbie

Barbie says to Ken: You know what chlorine does to my hair.  But if you insist we go swimming at least have the courtesy to help me take my head off first. -Denise Duhamel, Codependent Relationship

It's been a while, no?! In the 432094234 years since I last posted, I've been up to a few things.  One of my latest projects has been designing a last so that in the near future, I won't need to blowdry leather on my foot.  Remember that?

In the meantime, I've been playing around, again, with the process of de and reconstructing stripper heels (Barbie edition?).

I'll admit it: the floating glitter in the heel won me over!

The more you move, the more you sparkle; it's a terribly elegant concept.  They're insane, so I kept the uppers pretty simple: glossy black leather straps with long ankle straps.  You can wrap them around the ankle, around the instep, around the heel, up the leg, around your boyfriend, around the neighbors...

The crystal bouquet adornment is a harness I created a while ago, but never shot, for some reason.

Obviously, I ripped off the plastic uppers to accomplish this, etc etc, but this time around, I figured I'd keep it simple and spare you the long description of the rebuilding process— I covered that thoroughly last time around.  I'm going to let the pictures speak (scream?) for themselves.

Also, I started a Formspring (an anonymous question forum), so you can ask me questions!  Just go here.

Amaaazing! The floating glitter is dreamy and I like how it contrasts with the leather.
Please open an online shop!!!!

Your pictures are incredible!

Amy said...

These are so outrageous and perfect, like you isolated unicorn puke in an ice block, but the leather gives them that perfect edge. If I were to own these, I think clothing would become obsolete. Bravo!

I love the details of how you make things, it's like my favorite part. These are wonderful, the leather harnesses are perfect. I wonder though what liquid is inside, or is it not a liquid?

Jill said...

Is it just me, or does the red backdrop look like a giant vagina?!

anastassia said...

The motion pictures were making me trip. Love the result and the idea. Only thing that threw me off was that there was no glitter in the front of the platform.

(IN)DECOROUS TASTE said...

Jill- HA, yes. But leave it to you to notice it! Where would (IN)DECOROUS TASTE be without your observations??! (It happened accidentally while editing the photos. Hilariously glaring, like a pink vaginal vortex. Needed to be posted.)

Cara Gray said...

Juliana said...

I like it best around your neck!! I'm waiting for some of these clear heels on eBay to go on sale so I can try some sole-stripping myself.

They look amazing! I'm in love with the glitter in the heel, and the straps fit so well. The shoe screams at you, but is absolutely not too much or overdone.

Can you give us some cute shoe/material/interior links/storenames?
