Fandom Flair: Aes Sedai Shoes

Mashiara Sedai

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!
