Loki: Converse by GeeFreak Loki: Converse by GeeFreak
I am officially done with them and I couldn't be happier with the result...:dance:
I do notice that the front shoe's coloring looks distorted because of the light source so please excuse that. :/
I also decided to scrap the helmet-on-the-tongue idea because I didn't want to take the chance of them possibly messing up. All is left to do is heat-set them and then they're ready to wear. :)

Apple Barrel paints mixed with Golden Mediums GAC-900 fabric painting medium.
total working time: a little under 20 hours.

Are they machine washable? Or dry clean? And what would happen if they were to get wet?

I've never washed my converse since I'm always careful with my shoes, especially ones I have painted. What I know of, dry-cleaning is out of the question when using the GAC mediums stuff. Nothing has happened to mine when they've gotten wet.

When you say " I don't do EXACT pairs to each other" do you mean like they will be different pictures of Loki, or, what?

When I say that, I mean I don't make another pair like them. Once I finish a pair, that's the only pair that will look like that. No two pair of shoes are ever alike. One of a kind.

Where can you buy them?

GeeFreak Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014
You have to get them custom made through me. Unless you know how to paint and can do them yourself. :)

So if I wanted to get a pair just like these ones how would I go about getting them through you? Are you on Etsy/have a website or would I pay you through deviantart?

I use paypal for all my transactions. Prices and everything gets determined after my clients tell me what they want. I don't do exact pairs to each other- I try to keep each pair unique so the ones posted are the only pair I'll ever make. Prices do run high, with the shoe buying and then the painting and shipping prices.

I didn't sell these as they were for practice but I would have charged $285 for the shoes and artwork alone. shipping depends on where it's going.

how much for a pair including shipping to uk?

GeeFreak Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014
$250 for the shoes alone- I'm not familiar with the uk shipping prices. I DO know it's expensive to ship off a small box ($50) so I'm assuming it will cost quite a bit to ship them off.

sorry, just read down more and saw pricing. If ordered how long would it take you to send them out, I am sure it is a mega amount of work to hand paint these so beautifly

I usually charge $280 and up for the shoes alone. Shipping varies depending on where they're going. Since you said the UK, I'm not familiar with my post office prices for there- I think I saw that UK shipping was around $50 and up but I could be wrong.

this is stunning...i have NO idea how you got them so close to one another... like...symmetrical almost. how do you heat set them by the way? 
Reply
:icongeefreak:
GeeFreak Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
i got them closely symmetrical by tracing over the other painted shoe then just transferring that to the other. I just heat-set them using the highest temp on a blowdryer.

Shit...I want these shoes XD ! How much already ?  If only I can afford it *^* (after seeing The Dark World, I'm SO into Loki :heart:). Do you make yourself awesome and stunning shoes like that :O ?

:icongeefreak:
GeeFreak Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2013
Yes, I made the shoes myself and I charge $250 for a pair like this. I don't blame you for getting into Loki- great choice. :heart:

Yup, of course Thor is handsome too, but he doesn't have that "little something" Loki have *^* !
I wanted a tattoo of Loki after xD...my boyfriend was like: "...you should wait, you know you're impulsive".
Anyways, I hope to see more of your work *_* ! I think I will start save money for a pair...(seriously, Marvel should hire you to make those lol)

How much would it be to get a commission of loki shoes
Reply

GeeFreak Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013
Something like this would be $250, shipping is a little higher these days, so it might be a bit more.

Wow :o I'd buy them :D This is truly amazing, I love it.
I also have old but nearly unworn Chucks at home and I'm thinking about painting them... But sth like this is impossible for me; I wish I was just half as good in drawing Loki as you :D
So, really good work, love it, love it, love it :D

Aw, if you can't paint them, why don't you print him on some iron-on transfer paper and then stick him on there? It's an easier (and faster) way of doing it. :) Thanks, though. I appreciate it. :hug:
