Some Wicked shoes

**This is an example of some of the work I was involved with when I worked for a company called Theatrical Shoemakers. We made costume shoes for film, theatre, television etc**

These are some shots of shoes we made at work for the London production of the musical Wicked. The amazingly imaginative costumes were designed by Susan Hilferty and are incredibly detailed, as are the shoes with an array of colours, textures, fine details and interesting toe shapes. Here are some of my favourites...

I love button boots and these are some excellent variations.

curly toes! Hooray!

These exaggerated toe shapes are built up with layers of lightweight cork that we then file back into the desired shape with a rasp.

Want to have a look around the Wicked costume department and hear about the costumes from Susan Hilferty herself? Well you're in luck because Threadbanger made this handy video!
