Welcome back to another edition of "Fandom Flair." For this project, I wanted to try to decorate some shoes to be Aes Sedai (or White Tower) shoes. This was pretty easy, just tedious. I don't know about you, but I get bored by repetitive activities, and this got very repetitive. But, it's a cheap way to show off some Aes Sedai love.
First, I bought a pair of white, canvas shoes. I think I got them from Wal-Mart, and they were about $5.
Next, I bought a pack of Sharpie markers, making sure I had all the colors of the Ajahs (Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Gray, White, and Brown).
I started by measuring the front face of the shoe. I took that measurement and divided it by seven, giving me a little section for each of the seven colors.
Next, I continued adding that measurement to the sides of the shoes.
When I got to the back, I had a big chunk left over. My symmetrical-thinking mind wouldn't allow it to be less than perfect for the color scheme, so I decided to do the colors again, but aligned vertically. Not sure this was the best option, but it was the only one I was capable of doing.
Finally, I sketched a flame into the center to leave white. Then, I outlined everything in black and colored in each space with the designated Ajah color.
As I said, super easy, but really boring.
I didn't have enough room to outline the back so the colors look very smeared.
The front got a bit smeared, too. But I'm still pleased with the outcome!
Next time, I want to show you some easy ways to casual cosplay as Wheel of Time characters. Thanks for reading!
