Quick and Easy DIY Carnival Boots

 

Up until 2 days before carnival I planned to wear my adorable red fringe boots on carnival Monday and Tuesday.  Although I was sure I had broken the books in, I decided to do a test and wear the boots on one of my long, nonstop days. About 3 hours in my toes started hurting and I knew I had to come up with a Plan B.

Fringe vs No Fringe

Not having the time, energy, or materials to make an ALL IN design, I went through my left over materials basket and pulled out a few things to jazz up my red slouch boots.

First I put a pearl trim over the front seams of the boots and then added left over yellow and orange feathers from the backpack I made.

The result was cute, but I felt it needed a tad bit more bling so I added some silver trim to the back seam of the boot and added left over bling on a roll to the top.  *side note* I used tacky glue to glue the bling instead of hot glue so it wouldn’t weight down the boots and make them sag.

I was tempted to add more unnecessary stuff, but decided to stop there.  Quick and easy boots to go with my Tribe/Caesar’s Army: Venus Fly Trap costume

Blue Smoke Mas: Atlanta Carnival 2016

http://store.bluesmokeent.com/products

My compadre Lingy aka Lingywashere and I were asked to help design costumes for a new Atlanta Carnival band called Blue Smoke Mas.  They are a small band that want to offer a more affordable carnival experience to those that want to play mas, but don’t want to spend $300 – $400+.

Oh how I would love to be able to design some $800+ costumes, but I had a good time designing these.  They were pretty simple designs, like I said we were aiming to keep costs low.  If you follow my carnival tutorials then you’ve seen how I make the collars and leg pieces… and just like the leg piece, the belt design came from an unlikely place…
Here are a few stolen moments of us in the lab, enjoying some chunes and Jesus Juice. What can I say, even when I’m working I like to have a GOOD TIME!
