I think you did a good job. If it's for a recital, I don't think you need to go over it again in sequins, because people won't be able to see the small details. As long as the sequins are on and they don't fall off, the audience will see the reflection from the sequins and not be able to notice that it's a "mess" as you call it lol.

I assume you mean that the top looks a bit messy because otherwise I wouldn't know what you mean. And I agree with DancexooxDance, if they're for a recital, don't worry about the tiny details, no one will ever know. I think they look great already!

Thankyou!
I stuck a line of seqins around the top and covered the heels.
For the show i think im going to spray them with glitter hair spray.
I filled in a ny gaps and they now look quite good.

Whoa, those look so nice! And not as messy as the method I had to do when I needed red glittery shoes. My teacher had us spray them red, then spray them with spray adhesive, then cover them in red loose glitter, then repeat the adhesive and glitter. It was super messy. I wish she had known about your technique, maybe we wouldn't have glitter all over the studio!

They look great, and I wouldn't worry about how messy they look. YOU probably notice it, but I bet no one else will...

They don't look messy to me at all.

I wish you had sequined the heel so they'd look more like Dorothy's slippers.
