I've been bored while my foot is sprained, so I decorate pointe shoes! I decided to do a pointe shoe for each advanced dance in Nutcracker at our studio. These are the ones I have so far. I'll tell you a little about them too. :)

1. Spanish (see above)
2. Russian-our russian costumes are bright yellow with white trim. Image hotlink - 'http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh24/balletstar_2008/P1020245.jpg'
3. Snow- it is white, but puffy so it kind of looks pink here.Image hotlink - 'http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh24/balletstar_2008/P1020246.jpg'
4. Mice-thought it was kind of cute. Image hotlink - 'http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh24/balletstar_2008/P1020247.jpg'
5. Waltz-hand beaded Image hotlink - 'http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh24/balletstar_2008/P1020248.jpg'
6. Arabian- the teal thing going around the shoe is supposed to be the veil and I don't know that you can see it, but there is gold/red trim around the drawstring casing and at the tip. Image hotlink - 'http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh24/balletstar_2008/P1020249.jpg'
7. Sugar Plum-hand crystalized, has pearls and swavarski (sp?) crystals on it. Image hotlink - 'http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh24/balletstar_2008/P1020250.jpg'

Sorry they are turned the wrong way. Couldn't figure out how to fix that. Hope you enjoy them!

Those are very pretty! Snow, Arabian, and Sugar plum are my favorite! I love the colors on the Arabian, they're so rich and pretty!

Great job!

Wow those are so cool! I love snow and arabian is my favourite. Also like the hand beading on the waltz one. How did you do them ? did you use special paint or what?? A friend of mine wants to decorate her dead pointe shoes and you've just given me some inspiration.

Hope you're sprain is getting better and you can dance with your beautiful pointe shoes!

^ it is just normal fabric paint. The beads are strung on thread and glued to the shoes.

I love them all, you did a great job!
Hope you get better soon.
You could definitely sell our artworks at your next Nutcracker recital.

My favorite is the arabian pointe shoe! I have a friend who will be having surgery done and this is a great way to spend time recovering while you can't dance!
