customised shoes from gemsville at etsy
A friend of mine recently ordered some shoes for her daughter, and posted the photos on Facebook. I was so impressed with them that I decided to get some for The Girl.
The Girl’s absolutely favourite film ever is Spirited Away from Studio Ghibli. It is rather surreal, which completely appeals to The Girl. Chihiro’s parents eat too much food, so an eil witch turns them into pigs. Chihiro desperately tries to find help to return her parents to their usual form. She meets a boy who is also a dragon-spirit (Haku). Together they encounter the evil witch and her twin sister who is good. Another spirit they meet is No-Face who at first is a people-eating monster but his time with Chihiro and Haku has a positive effect on him!
As I said – rather surreal. A bit like The Girl.
After seeing the shoes that my friend had made up, I realised that the Spirited Away animations would be a good fit with Gemma of Gemsville designs – so after a few emails exchanged she sent me her proposed designs and rough drawings, and I happily paid my £25.
I think you can see how happy The Girl was with her surprise
