More AF Shoes and an Outfit

I ordered more sneakers after posting about the last set I bought.  You can see those in this post.  They took a while to get here, so I almost forgot about them.  I bought them from ebay seller 77toys77.

I bought 5 more pair.  They are all Nike, even the all black pair.  When soft and pliable they will fit the majority of the action figures that live here.  The hi-tops are a little harder to get on the action figures.  I also tried them on Darius (my IT guy).  They are a little big on him, but a little tissue stuffed in the toes of the low-tops will fix that problem..  On the other hand, the hi-tops were much easier to get on.

I bought my first pair of action figure clogs.  They come in various colors.  They came in the little paper bag.  The strap is there like you see in the picture.  They are just folded over the shoe.  I tried them on Dasia.  They don't fit.  

And yes, Dasia got another new outfit  I designed a new criss-cross top for her which paired nicely with a summer floral skirt I made last week.  The shirt needs a little tweaking.  For one, I meant for the criss-cross to go the other way.  I am happy to have this basic pattern done.  I will be able to do wrap dresses and different style wrap tops, in the future.

    1. Ladonna - Dasia doesn't have a guy yet. She may be single for a little bit. But when the guy does come, she will at least have a nice wardrobe.

  3. Hi Vanessa, thanks for sharing the info about the fitting of the shoes on IT guys, I think they could use some nice pairs of sneakers!
    Shall I ask you how the clogs fit on them?
    The criss cross top fits nicely, just needs a little fitting around the armpit and shoulders, Dasia is indeed a lucky girl!

    1. billa's dolls - I think the clogs are too big. Dasia is lucky. If she ever makes it to the basement with the other ladies, I'm sure they will let her know.

    2. Thanks for the info Vanessa, I'm always looking for new shoes for the guys! I would love to see a story about Dasia, she's such a sexy girl, I see her stealing Darius's heart!

  4. I have a pair of those sneakers! The plastic is pretty hard, and they're too small for my one action figure's feet, but they fit Ken (although you might need to heat them a bit to get them safely on or off). Somehow I managed to forget they had crocs too...

    1. Anderson's AP - Which AF do you have? There are a few with some really big feet. But the majority of AF should be able to fit the low tops. You do have to soften up the plastic, but that is to be expected. A little blast from a blow dryer will do the trick, or a little steam. Even running them under hot water works.

  5. Those sneakers are great! I may have to buy some in the future. I love the crocs too. I wonder if they would fit any of the lady action figure feet. You are really going to town with the Dasia clothes. She is accumulating a very nice wardrobe.

    1. Phyllis - I don't have any female action figures, but I would imagine the shoes would fit. I just can't seem to stop sewing for Dasia. It's a great way for me to hone my pattern making and sewing skills. Practice makes perfect.

  8. thank you for the heads up on these if they fit the FR hommes, I had been meaning to buy a pair to see if they fit as the price is not bad. My action figure guys and hommes needed some sneakers badly.

  10. Those sneakers are really nice. The price isn't too shabby either. I must save this seller. I was hoping Dasia could wear the clogs.

    I like her new blouse and the skirt it's paired with, too.

    1. DBG - That is the cheapest price I've seen on these shoes, which is why I scarfed them up. Dasia has really wide feet. The clogs would have been perfect if they had fit.

  11. Thank you for sharing that the shoes can fit the IT guys. I will just be happy that it's someone else's shoes that need paper stuffed in them. I remember having to do that as a child. Mom was always trying to stretch the budget, so the shoes were a little big to give room for growth.

    Dasia is fortunate you are giving her a nice wardrobe.

    1. Janainah - My mom always stretched the budget, too. I never had to wear tissue in my shoes, but I don't ever remember getting a pair of name brand shoes.

    1. Brini - Dasia is keeping me busy, but she and I are on the same page. She is forcing me to get better at pattern drafting. So I am grateful to her.
