Title: Creating the most beautiful pair of shoes in the world
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 7th Jul, 2014 at 11:23am
We are now ready to work on a new pair of ruby slippers, but before we begin I want to show you a photo of our previous work.

These are not your ordinary ruby slippers that you see every day. They are hand sewn, they are high quality, and they are an exact replica of the original ruby slippers as worn by the young beauty beside them.

These three pairs of ruby slippers together are worth many thousands of dollars, all made by our company and it's one of the rare occasions that they are photographed together.

This is the custom made base shoes that we will be working on next.

There's a lot of work ahead to produce these into another beautiful pair of ruby slippers like the originals, definitely takes an awful lot of focus and persistence to make hand sewn ruby slippers after ruby slippers.

The bows are done and we've got Judy Garland's name written inside the shoes with a black fountain pen so now it's time to work with the sequins, and thousands of them to turn this base shoes into a pair of magical pair of ruby slippers.

The bows looks quite nice and the shape and size is what we want. They are hand sewn and you can see how neatly stitched the vintage rhinestones are bordering the bows. We always strive for perfection with our bows and they're never easy to make if replicating the original bows.

A final look at these world-class bows, near identical to the original bows on Judy Garland's size 5B ruby slippers when they were in pristine condition in 1939.

Okie dokie, now it's a long hard road ahead to sew all the sequins.

Work is in progress with this shoe. All the sequins are held to the shoe with a thread, and none are glued. The stitching looks beautiful so far but we've still got over 4,000 sequins to do so we need to focus at the huge task at hand.

We won't put a timeframe to complete this pair of ruby slippers, however they will be eventually finished.

An update on Judy Garland's ruby slippers as they look like so far.

We still need to work on a few minor details on the other side of this shoe, and then obviously there's lots of sewing with the other shoe, but yep very beautiful so far.

This is exactly what Miss Garland's ruby slippers looked like as new in 1939, so there's a touch of class about this pair.

Judy Garland's ruby slippers is looking simply stunning but our work is not over yet.

We are faced with different difficulty levels and thinking process as we replicate the most famous pair of shoes in the world.

We are less than a week away from completing this gorgeous pair of size 5C ruby slippers, and Judy Garland seems happy with them at the moment.

A beautiful actress and a beautiful pair of shoes, they certainly go well together.

The beauty and her shoes!

Judy Garland's ruby slippers is finished. This is another world class reproduction of a very high quality pair of hand-sewn ruby slippers near identical to the ones worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

As we prepare to begin work on another magical pair of ruby slippers, this pair of ruby slippers will be stored in a glass case for display and to keep it looking new and away from dust.

You can see more photos of this pair of ruby slippers on the following page:

See you soon for our next ruby slipper making project!

So admin, what is your reason for making these? Do you sell them?

Title: Re: Creating the most beautiful pair of shoes in the world
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 10th Aug, 2014 at 6:46am
The ruby slippers are made for relatives, display purposes, and most of the time with the intention of selling them.

There's never any shortage of customers from United States because we are dealing with their actress and their shoes, and it's quite unusual for Laotians to recreate the most famous and complex shoes in the world.

I personally think one pair of these high quality Laotian-made products is currently placed in a free ranged (not caged) well ventilated unpolluted high security section of the exosphere.
