|Trinidad Carnival Boots for Yuma Totem|
the final set of boots I made for Trinidad carnival are for the Yuma Totem
costume. Ima sound really crazy for
saying this, but the design for these boots were inspired by Kid Icarus (my
fellow gamers should remember Icarus).
First step is always prime then paint boots
Glued fabric around the straps and then spray painted some jewels to match
My homie ordered a tiara instead of a headpiece so I figured
alot of feathers on the boots wouldn’t be an over kill. The amount of feathers in my
vision were a bit too much for her, had to make some reductions lolol The final product was a lot less that I originally
envisioned, but I realized that it takes a special kind of personality to
confidently rock my vision so I'm going to save the rest of my over the top, Gotti vision for when I design my
boots for Atlanta Carnival in May.
