[Whoops, forgot to put behind a cut last time. Apologies if you happened to check your friends list just then]

I promised pictures of the TARDIS dress, and I always keep my promises (eventually)! It has dawned on me that it really isn't the most literal interpretation, so I'm not sure if it qualifies as "a TARDIS dress". Oh well. (There's also a police public call box headband and st. John's ambulance wristband in the works.)
The sketch that started it all

[livejournal.com profile] aredblush asked me to show my favourite shoes, and it was easy enough to just photograph my whole collection.
Photobucket
This picture is missing the black rainbow-laced boots from the flats picture, but otherwise these are my favourites. The red ones I've had for 5 years
 
Photobucket
These are all my flats. Note the rainbow laces! I got them from Stockholm the last time I was visiting. The gold-sequined ones are from Rome and just as old as the red ones. The soles are cracked to hell and mom tries to throw them away monthly. So far I've managed to save them >:)

Photobucket
My boots! First ones I got for free and the second ones were bought unused from a secondhand store for just 5e.
 
Photobucket
My heels! The ones on the left were most likely my first heels (bought 6 years ago) and started out white. I painted them gold to match my confirmation dress later.
 
Photobucket
Closer look at my heels. These all have pretty minimal heel except for the leopard ones. 5th pair from the left is also from 5 years back and I used to fill the toe part with toilet paper to make them the right size.
 
Photobucket
I got interrupted and had to move. (not really) a closer look at some of the little higher heels. The ones on the left I got only as I was interrupted so they're not in the small heels picture. They feel fabulously comfortable so far.

I don't know why this next picture shows up so big. :( 
Photobucket
Closer look at the HIGH heels. The shot glass, which Eli brought for me from Mexico, was the only thing in arm's reach for height reference.
 
 
15 hours until next exam. I believe I should start reading the material (Ways of Reading by Montgomery et co. & The Study of Languge by George Yule) sometime soon...

MY REACTION WAS ONLY A LITTLE LESS THAT AND MORE MAD GIGGLES.

I'm coaxing my little brother to make me TARDIS earrings to wear with it. :)))

I WANT ALL YOUR SHOES! ALL OF THEM! I MUST HAVE ALL OF THEM!


No seriously! I want ALL OF THEM! How do you have such amazing shoes? I'll have to come visit and bring an empty suitcase so I can buy all the cool shoes!


Also also! YOUR DRESS IS GORGEOUS AND YOU ARE THE GORGEOUSEST IN IT! <333333333

I WOULD OFFER TO SHARE BUT THEY MIGHT BE A BIT SMALL. :D

The answer is probably that I hoard shoes and keep them for years and years? Also, I didn't include the 5 hideous pairs of shoes that I own besides my pretty ones. Only about a third of those are actually from here. Most are from vacation places like France, Rome, Stockholm...

AWW THANKS. <33333

P.S. Do you think the shoes are an okay match? My cap is black and white (like in the sketch) so I thought those might be the best ones. How about the bracelets?

DAMN MY BIG FEET >:(

Ohhh. Well, whatever! I am kidnapping you for shoeshopping around the world, then! :D?

The bracelets are amaaazing! A++! I really like the shoes! They match with the dress very well :) I also really liked the other shoes you had in the other pic I saw, I think they were the third ones from the left in the second-to-last picture!

DAMN MY TINY FEET *shakes fist*

OH YES. Shoeshopping with you would be fantastic! Is it still kidnapping if I'm all for it? :D

GOOD \o/ Then I just have to find a necklace and I have a full set of accessories. Yup, those were the ones. I figured that the black and whites were a better match with the cap in the end. I'll probably wear both on the day: first the striped ones in the graduation ceremony and then the black ones at home.

*scrunches toes* mmmm..... maybe if I keep my toes scrunched up?

We can kidnap each other \o/

Niiice! So you can wear MORE SHOES! HOW BRILLIANT! *_______*

if you can scrunch your toes to fit into size 35-36 shoes, then be my guest!

MUTUAL KIDNAPPINGS. I ALWAYS KNEW YOU WERE THE BRAINS OF THIS OPERATION, DEAR. :D

I can wear all the shoes! Line them up all pretty like and accessible. And if my feet get tired I can wear the new sandals. \o/

I freaking love all your shoes, the flats, the heels, the boots *______*

:D As do I. I never remember how many shoes I have until I lay them all out. Mostly I tend to simply wear them out one by one until they fall apart.

<3333 Doesn't it just! I'm so gleeful about it. :D And I admit, some of my shoes are so kickass I have to plan out kickass days just so I get to wear them.
