Hopefully this post doesn't get lost with the issues CC is having lately...

I would like to send a strappy sugar shoe through the mail and I'm really stumped as to how I would package it so the straps don't break or collapse. I'm not sure what I could put inside the shoe that would be sturdy enough to hold the shape of the straps but soft/pliable enough to get in and out.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you smiley.png

Honestly, I ship gumpaste all the time and I wouldn't try to ship something like you're describing. There's nothing that you could pack it with that would be guaranteed to keep the straps from breaking. It's possible that if you used enough polyfill it would give it a better chance, but I wouldn't try it because that's the kind of thing that would break most of the time.

Also, if it got there in one piece, if the customer breaks it when they take it out of the box (highly likely) they'll blame you for it, and you won't know if it was you or them.

You've made very good points @costumeczar ‍. I may have to rethink this. Thank you
