Phantom - Les Mis Shoes by LacernellaRubra Phantom - Les Mis Shoes by LacernellaRubra
About two years ago I bought a pair of cheap black shoes with the idea of painting something on it. I started painting a dragon on them, but failed miserably and put the shoes away in my closet. I hardly new about Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables back then. Anyway, I came across my shoes again a few weeks ago and decided I would paint some Les Mis and Phantom-stuff on it. Last tuesday I started and yesterday I finished it.

I used acrylics and for those of you who can't read the lyrics I put on the shoes, here they are:

For Les Mis (Red):
Do you hear the people sing?
Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that they bring when tomorrow comes


And for Phantom (Blue):
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night


Took me a while to choose the quotes. Both musicals have some great lyrics. :D

(btw, notice how the shoes form the french flag. Kinda.)

Order a pair of customized shoes here or just send me a note.

Geen probleem! :lol: (Haha, ohja, lol, waarom heb ik hier in het Engels ge-comment?? ^^;)
Geweldig paar schoenen!! Ik ben ook helemaal verzot op The Phantom of the Opera, meer nog dan Les Misérables, en ik kan de musical inmiddels wel van voor tot achter meezingen, hihi. :giggle:

Haha, tsja, ik reageer ook vaak in het Engels, maar ik zag dat je Nederlands was, dus vandaar. :P
En klinkt bekend, haha, Phantom is ook mijn favoriet. (Al is het alleen maar omdat ik zonder Phantom Les Mis misschien nooit gekend zou hebben)

Automatisch, hé? Maar in dit geval is het toch wel stom, want ik vond dit plaatje via de Netherlands-groep. :giggle: Op The Phantom ben ik al 20jaar verliefd, en ik ben, back in the 90's, 2 keer naar het Circustheater geweest. Maar Les Misérables heb ik eigenlijk nog nooit gezien... :blush: (Tuurlijk ken ik wel de beroemdste liedjes ervan. :aww:)

Haha, gaaf! Toen Phantom in Nederland speelde lag ik nog in de wieg, dus ik heb 'm helaas niet in het Circustheater gezien. :P Maar heb 'm twee jaar geleden wel in Londen gezien (Les Mis ook, trouwens). :aww:

Jaaa... Ik voel me ook zeer bevoorrecht dat ik dat heb mogen meemaken! :aww:
Ongelofelijk hoe de populariteit van The Phantom daarna nog zou gaan groeien, en de populariteit van musical in het algemeen. :)
Wow, in Londen The Phantom bezoeken... Dat is iets wat ik ook altijd nog zou willen doen!! Heb wel de 25th Anniversary-voorstelling gezien op DVD. :giggle:

heeeel coool ;u;
ik wil dat ooit ook nog eens proberen, aleen ben ik zo bang dat de verf er af gaat laddren nadat ik de schoenen twee of drie keer heb aangehad :XD:

:iconlacernellarubra:
LacernellaRubra Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Dankje! :D En het valt wel mee met het beschadigen van de verf. Ik heb mijn schoenen inmiddels al anderhalf jaar en draag ze minstens eens in de twee weken, en de verf zit er nog prima op. Alleen op de punten waar de schoen erg veel buigt (ter hoogte van de enkels) zitten er wat barstjes in het wit. (Om de een of andere reden barst witte verf sneller dan gekleurde verf :P )
Als je ooit nog besluit om toch schoenen te verven een tip: verf in dunne laagjes (dus niet in één keer een dikke laag verf). Vergt wat meer tijd, maar volgens mij blijft de verf dan wel beter "heel". 

Anyway, als je ooit schoenen gaat beschilderen: succes en ik zou het leuk vinden om ze te zien als je ze af hebt :3
