What about human hair? Human hair is fairly strong.

I haven't thought of that but hair may be difficult to work with than a regular thread which is soft.

Also, they didn't use hair to make the original ruby slippers and I like to keep my replicas the same.

I've cut out some shapes of the bows from leather which will be used on Judy Garland's ruby slippers. The measurements and shape is identical to the bows on the original ruby slippers located at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

The wine colored material is a silk chiffon fabric which will be used to sew my vintage 1930's jewels onto, then to finish it off I sew the fabric over the leather bows.

I don't make them for sale, nothing is for sale.

One bow alone would cost $1,000 if I were to put them up for sale. That's how good the bows really are.

It takes a year, or over a year, to make a pair of ruby slippers. I'm talking about a quality pair of ruby slippers the same way they were made for The Wizard of Oz, and not some rubbish replicas that you can find eBay for $50.

If I were to treat them like a full time job, and work on them for 8 hours every day, it could be done in 3 months.

Wow! Jiminy Crickets!

It seems to be a Mega-structure ever seen. I see you are going to build a new pair of ruby slippers from zore. I means you are not only sewing the red sequins on those shoes. You build the bow, company label and other part?, so what about the core? the slippers?

I make the bows myself from scratch out of leather and sew on the sequins on the shoes, but the embroidered fabric "Innes Shoe Co." company label is ordered from the United States or I can get the soles stamped in gold with the company label. Either way is acceptable because the original ruby slippers had labels in both format.

The silk base shoes is not built by me. They are custom made for me from a nice gentleman in America because he knows what he is doing. He knows the exact shape of the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy. I paint the shoes though.




The base shoes with different heels for comparison. One shoe has the front part of the heels straight, and the other shoe is a bit roundish. One shoe is covered with red fabric, and the other shoe is burgundy in color.
