I change the image just so it has the ownership and links on it to try to avoid theft.
Marauder Shoes COMPLETE by ~KDodge. The suggester said that "these are some of the coolest things I've seen on deviantART in the five or so years I've been snooping around. And, not because it is a Harry Potter-themed piece. The attention to detail and to the illustrative elements in these shoes is amazing, and the artist still retains thoughtful design elements that are sensitive to the form on which the artist is painting."

Wow! These are so beautiful!! I checked on Etsy and i'm going to have to start saving up...Maybe I could beg my parents for my birthday...I hope they stay on sale for a little longer! Thank you for such a wonderful masterpiece!
I GOT A PAIR Thank you so much ^_^ It was a Christmas present from my friend and they're amazing. I can't stop staring at them, haha. Quick question though...I'm just curious...on the Shrieking Shack one of the originals, did you write their nicknames?
I'm so glad you liked! On some of them there were the nicknames, and then some people liked just their real names so I started doing it like that for a while too. I guess it goes back and forth since people can customize it.
I like it both ways It probably makes more sense that it would be their real names and it fits as far as aesthetics go. The nicknames fit more with the animal theme of the other one. So both are really brilliant. Just a quick question--how many have you made? I did notice that the details were a little more simple in comparison to the original (not a bad thing at all and completely understandable; they're still the most beautiful thing I own and I adore them to death. To death.) and I was thinking of how tired you must be painting the same thing over and over again! Haha. Thank you so much for continuing to do it, though! I'm sure everyone that has gotten a pair is so as grateful as me.
Anyways, yes. Thank you so much. I've wanted them for months (I actually messaged you back when you first made them about getting it done and I just never could afford it) so I'm like the happiest camper ever. Really. They're absolutely amazing and you're extremely creative and each element of them is just perfectly Marauders and I will cherish them forever and never ever wear them and buy a glass case to keep them in so I can ensure they stay safe (I did try one on once, but I didn't walk or keep it on for more than about 30 seconds, haha).
Btw, the pictures do not do them justice. I really like the fixative and the look it gives it. I should stop raving now. Anyways, thank you so much and you'll never know how much it means to me to get a pair :]
haha thank you so much for all your kind words! Yea I have done quite a few of these and it does get tiring sometimes, but in the end I'm always happy to do it. It's a blessing that people love them and that makes it worth it. Plus it means even if someone has the same design it won't be EXACTLY the same, so everyone still gets something unique. I'm so happy you enjoy them, but you should wear them! They'll be safe I promise. That nice gloss finish will protect it from the elements, and if they get dirty you can always wash them with a bit of soap and water. Enjoy them, wear them, get them dirty!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE continue to make these? i look at them everyday and i want them so bad!!!!! i love them!! i wont have the money for them for a while sooooo will you contine to be making these?
