We can’t get enough of these hilarious pigeon-themed high heels, seen on the streets of Japan. Created by Kyoto Ohata, they actually serve a well-intended purpose. Ohata, who often passes through an area filled with pigeons, was concerned that her human presence was upsetting them. They scatter as she comes through, which prompted her DIY shoes shaped as pigeons.
The end result is both fashionable and funny. Look below for our detailed instructions on how to make your own pair.
Want to make your own DIY shoes? See, step by step, how Ohata turned an ordinary pair of heels into a hilarious showpiece.
First, the heads are carved from foam and then carefully covered with felt.
Purchase some cheap heels and glue the body of the pigeon to the back of the shoes.
Cut the wing pieces from a denser felt.
Cut smaller circles of gray and black felt to use as feathers, gluing them to your wing pieces.
Attach the wings using a generous helping of PVA glue.
Using softer felt, roll out 8 balls that will be the eyes and nostrils of your two feathered friends.
Similarly to how the side wings were made, create shapes to cover the tips of the shoes.
Use rigid wire to form the feet, covering each one in red felt and even add some painted accents.
Attach the feet on either side of the heels and add on the eyes, nostrils, and beaks. Voila!
