Title: Ruby slippers are the holy grail of all Hollywood memorabilia
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 8th Feb, 2015 at 4:29pm
This is a custom-made size 5B pair of shoes that we will be using to make Judy Garland's ruby slippers. It also features a beautiful interior with a gold company stamp on the right shoe like the originals that reads "Innes Shoe Co., Los Angeles, Hollywood, Pasadena".

The shape and small size of this base shoes fits perfectly on Judy Garland as Dorothy's feet, and they are identical to the original pair on display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

The studio wanted this pair to be a bit sexier on Judy Garland, by adding longer heels and more of a pointy toes than the other pairs made for the movie, so for serious Oz fans this is pretty much the ruby slippers you want to get your hands on, and they will be crafted by an experienced ruby slipper maker.

The studio thought about making all ruby slippers with long heels but then Judy Garland as Dorothy would look tall when standing with the other characters, so they decided that she wear a pair with long heels in closeup shots and the Munchkinland scenes where she was required to appear much taller than the Munchkins.

This will be a hand-sewn pair of ruby slippers using the same technique as the originals so there's lots of sewing time ahead, and no party time.

Exactly like the original ruby slippers, we have written "#7 Judy Garland" on the top right side of both shoe with an old fashion black fountain pen. The ruby slippers is an American icon from the past, so we have to live in the past.

We also wrote the letter "G" in calligraphy-style font like the originals. It's now time for the hard part, sewing nearly 5,000 sequins onto the shoes.

We will be using this beautiful pair of bows on the ruby slippers. The bows are made from leather and silk, and they are hand-sewn containing high quality glass rectangular stones which have been custom cut to match the original 1939 stones.

The shape and size of the bows looks perfect on the ruby slippers. This side of the shoe is almost done, we are up to sequining the heels and the other side of the shoe.

We have finished sewing the sequins on the right shoe and it looks very beautiful. This is a very time-consuming project and there's still a lot of work to do, bring on the left shoe.

Our ruby slippers doesn't have any noticeable gaps between the rows of sequins, and that's the difference between a sloppy and a quality handmade pair of ruby slippers.

Judy Garland's ruby slippers is coming together nicely. We are probably around a week away from finishing this pair of ruby slippers, and that means sewing all day by hand.

Recreating the most famous pair of shoes in the world is a long and painstakingly pleasurable process.

A closeup of the sequins on the left shoe that we are currently working on. Hand sewing every single sequin is not easy and takes a lot of patience.

The placement of the sequins looks very professional. The key is to make sure the sequins are sewn millimeter perfect because you don't want any of the sequins to past the top opening of the shoe, and the edge of the sole. The sole is painted glossy red like the originals.

After 3 weeks of meditation to stay focused at the difficult task of hand-sewing, we have concluded our work with this gorgeous pair of ruby slippers.

We made this pair of ruby slippers for Judy Garland, like all others, and they are her gift to the world to cherish.

The most beautiful pair of shoes made for the most beautiful actress in movie history.

This is the product of nearly 200 hours to individually sew by hand around 5,000 sequins to a size 5B pair of dance shoes.
