Commissions are open for 2024.
Payments must be made via Zelle, check, or money order. I do not accept any other payment methods.
All commissions require a non-refundable $500 deposit at the time of sign up. The remaining balance must be paid before the completed slippers are shipped. You will be given an estimated time for your slippers completion.
If you have ever signed up for a commission and did not follow through, your name is not eligible to be added to my commission list again.
I only ship my shoes to addresses in the United States. Shipping is included in the price.
In addition to being hand sewn in the same manner as the pairs created by MGM Studios, my finished pairs are made with nearly all custom made components including sequins, glass jewels, and micro thin bugle beads. Bugle Bead replicas utilize vintage bugle beads instead of custom.
All base shoes are created using red silk faille with kid leather interiors and canvas lining at the toe, mimicking the vintage style construction of the original Innes Shoe Company shoes. The pairs are hand crafted on custom made shoe lasts and feature custom made vintage reproduction Art Deco heels, hand thinned leather soles, and rubber top lifts.
New Metallic: $2,500.00
Slippers that look the way the originals appeared on film.
Made with custom made pre-aged sequins, followed by several aging processes that remove excess metallic, resulting in a flaked red appearance with metallic flecks throughout.
Bugle Beaded: $4,000.00
Based on the glass beaded pair of slippers worn by Judy Garland during the first 10 days of filming under the direction of Richard Thorpe. 2mm beads and a previous style base shoe were used on the sample pair. Subsequent pairs are made on updated base shoes with 4mm bugle beads.
