Well, Holycow~! This has been a bit overwhelming for me. You see, when I was younger, I always wanted to design my own clothes, accessories and things, part of the way of staying unique. But I've ALWAYS wanted to customise shoes. I thought it must be bloody hard, so I put it off... Until last September, when I discovered how simple it could be to pull off, and decided to give it a go. I left the project alone for quite some time, and decided to tackle it again over the course of the last week, and this is the result~!
Now I used old Converses because I wanted to wear these, I own plenty of Converses already, and I would have been pissed if the whole project went wrong and I messed up a new pair, so I picked a nice pair of black comfortable ones! I'm so pleased with the result, I cannot tell you; Why Palmtree Panic? It's one of my favourite zones, from one of my favourite games~!
Acrylics, Waterproof markers, Matt Varnish for waterproofing; I will be wearing these babies at Summer of Sonic this year, too!
I also cannot finish this description without giving props to =Bobsmade for inspiring me with his work and causing me to create my own designs~! People like you make the world a brighter, nicer place to live in. Much love, man! ♥
So much to say, but I think I'll leave the floor open for questions, really. Enjoy people~! ♥

I love these. I love dsigning my own sneakers, it's so much fun and you're right about how easy it is! I've already made 6 pairs of snekers for myself and family and I can't wait to do more! I've been thinking about doing a pair of Sonic converses for a while and I've got to tell you, yours have solidified my decision. Can't wait to get started!
