Hello! A client wants me to recreate this shoe. But I'm not sure how to go about making it look the same. Is it possible? If so, please share your ideas. Thanks!!!

I have seen these shoes in the stores lately in several different colors including red and black. They look rather different in person then in the picture. The shoe is COMPLETELY covered in glitter. This makes them very sparkly and super glamorous. The glitter is also what creates the texture you see in the picture. In person they have a rough feel from the glitter and aren't smooth like a patent leather, but they do not have the stucco type texture you would imagine from the picture..... haha hopefully that makes sense. Not sure what types of edible glitter you can buy. I know it tends to be more flaky. I posted a link below to an article about making your own edible glitter. I have never done it before, but remember reading it thinking it looked interesting, and that i should try it. If you do it let me know how it goes!

do this only if no one intends to eat it...disco dust is plastic and not edible.

make shoe, put a light coating of piping gel, cover with glitter, shake excess.
