How To Make Rihanna 2012 X Factor Shoes by Yourself

First of all I want to launch this post with announcement, that this is the most frustrated post I ever made. It took me 7 days. You will think that making the shoe itself or shooting the process was the problem, but no, it's something to do with Voodoo powers I'm 99 percent sure of it. The tutorial is a step by step video as always, but this time I made an effort and did the whole process, from designing the sandal to the finished item (yes I did).

So the tutorial is maybe the longest I ever made 2:15 hours, but it wasn't supposed to be a problem, and after the editing was finished, I uploaded them (2 parts) to YouTube. Although it was pretty fast the first time, and I was ready to publish it on the blog, then I noticed that my video is corrupted for some reason, just big black sequences in a middle of both parts. I checked the original footage but it was ok, so I uploaded again. It took me the whole day and in the end the upload crashed, It happened twice . 

Unfortunately it was not the end of it, after finally the both parts uploaded I checked them again to make sure that everything is right, but what you know, the end of the process was missing! I wanted to upload it again, but there was no movies to upload, yes you heard it right, it was gone. At that moment I was so close to quite the whole thing, but I couldn't, it just drove me insane. Well, it took me two more days, exporting the movie clips and uploading, but I did it. I don't know if there was some "Tech Voodoo" involved but It feels like forever making this one, so I hope you like it.          
So the story of making this tutorial is that my cuisine is a big fan of Rihanna. After she saw her on the X-factor in Alexander Wang shoes, she didn't stop bothering me with the request to make the same shoes for her. 

Finally I found time  to do it.Usually I don't like to do what has already been done by someone else, so I changed the design a little bit for well known reasons and to be honest doing Rihanna sandals was unexpected fun.
