This side of the shoe is almost done, I just need to finish off the heel. It's a long and grinding road with the project.

This is ruby slipper making at its best. You're looking at a very, very, very high-quality hand-sewn ruby slipper that Judy Garland as Dorothy wore in The Wizard of Oz.

The ruby slippers is turning more shinny.

This side and the bum of the shoe is finished, but there's still a lot of sewing to do on the other side of the shoe. That's why high standard ruby slippers like this is expensive, it takes a long time to make.

Hot! The sequining job on this side of Judy Garland's ruby slippers is finished, in fact the entire right shoe is finished.

Judy Garland's name will be written on the side of the shoe as a final touch but that will be done later. There's still a long way to go as we now focus our attention on the left shoe.

This is the set of bows that is finished and will be used on the ruby slippers which should be completed in a few months, it's a long project. The bows have been created to look brand new, as if they are ready to be stitched onto the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in 1939.

We used the same technique and materials by MGM costume designer, Gilbert Adrian. Only very few people in the world can create world-class bows like these.

We are working very hard behind the scenes to bring you Judy Garland's magical ruby slippers. The other shoe should be done in a few months so keep an eye out.

See how pointy the toe of the slippers is? This is considered the sexy pair that Judy Garland as Dorothy wore on her first steps on the Yellow Brick Road.

All-round beauty both the shoes and chick.

Chick aside, Judy Garland's ruby slippers is far from finished but they are looking absolutely stunning so far. Check out the bows, they look very authentic.

These are genuine hand-sewn reproductions that would be provided for Judy Garland as Dorothy if The Wizard of Oz was filmed today.

Judy Garland's ruby slippers is done! We just need to add her name on the shoes to complete the project which finished faster than expected.

Normally it takes at least 6 months to build hand-sewn ruby slippers if worked on a casual basis, but we treated it like a full-time job and spent 9 hours per day carefully sewing each sequin one by one.

A lot of people would love to get their hands on this size 5B ruby slippers. This pair is the real deal, a beautiful replica of the ruby slippers that Judy Garland as Dorothy wore in The Wizard of Oz.

More photos coming soon.

I'm the artist who created these ruby slippers but some people are also involved in the project. Those who provide the supplies, the information, and assist me when need be. The assisting include holding the shoes while I work on the difficult areas, things like that.

Judy Garland is an actress in a number of movies, including The Wizard of Oz. If you've never seen it before then I suggest you watch it before you die.
