Dear Charles Anastase,
For months, I have been writing you, inquiring about these dungeon boots:
and I promise I would have paid good money for your awesome design, but since I did not hear from you, I could not wait any longer….I made them myself. I’m sorry. I don’t usually buy knock-offs, and you can rest assured I will not profit monetarily like other companies (*ahem* JS) from your design…
Ok, folks, now that I have gotten that off my chest…I will now reveal how truly insane I am. The process of making these were so painful….Frankly, I dont even want to talk or think about it ever again!
I started with these classy bad boys from Pleaser. I hated the shape of the heel….how it curved in and was sort of skinny. I also didn’t like how the platform wasn’t seamless. So what do you use to fix a common problem like that? Good ole BONDO.
I filled the seams with bondo and sanded it until it was smooth. For the heel, I kept packing on the putty to get the right thickness.
The sanding part was terrible. I wanted to cry every minute of it.
After I achieved the shape I wanted, Eric helped me spray it with black texturized rubber spray. I then jammed on some spikes I bought from Ebay and laced them with the dirtiest sneaker laces I could find. There you have it…my “never do it again do it yourself” project.
I’m off to work in Hong Kong, China, Tokyo for the next 3 weeks…Sadly, China does not allow me to use blogger over there so I will not be updating… be good kids and all my love ♥
