Narcissa shoes, anyone?

I think I ship them with Rosmerta's (occasional) shoes:

Or maybe even her less sparkly pair:

...I really want to cosplay Rosmerta someday.

Those are all so gorgeous. I want them. These are pretty much my shoe dream (http://www.ebay.com/itm/JIMMY-CHOO-Cosmic-Green-Suede-Pumps-/120847013128?pt=US_Women_s_Shoes&hash=item1c230b1508). Sadly, even if I had the money, the pair that was most likely to fit me isn't up right now. :(

I have many shoe dreams. Thankfully, most of them involve the big word "SALE" and seeing them in person--which works fine with me. :D

Ah, yes, that would be amazing too.

Seriously, I somehow fixated on that pair of Choos when doing an epic shoe search a few months ago.

No those first shoes should be shipped Shiv/Shoes. Oh yes.

Where are they from? Are they affordable? They're certainly not wearable in an upright position.

I can get behind the Shiv/Shoes ship, but I have a feeling it's going to be sadly unrequited.

I spent lots of time looking up for you (it was fun, I promise!) and learned that the shoes are apparently from designer Gia Lorenzi, from the Fall 2008 collection, and has Swarovski crystal--so they don't run at all cheap! I also couldn't find any with that green colouration; I only saw black, one with a blue snake (here), and one that was very very purple (here).

Alas, they seem more something to look at and admire...

Shoes love me! Shoes do! It's only fate keeping us apart.

i need those shoes, i doubt i'll ever wear them, but i need them. my heart needs them.</p>

not even in my sweetest dreams of cosplaying Narcissa i'd dream with shoes like those :B actually, one of the mistakes i did when cosplaying Narcissa was wearing high heels all day long D:

Ahahaha. Alas, they are very expensive designer shoes, from what my research revealed! They seem more fit to drool over. :X

Ah, yes. I think if I ever get around to cosplaying Rosmerta (I really would like to--it only describes her as curvy with a pretty face, and I think I can fit the bill there, especially if I nab a corset), I'll have to be careful not to wear turquoise heels too long. No matter how much I love them. :B

I don't know about Narcissa for the first pair, but I can definitely see Rita wearing them...and wearing them well too.

Yes, this!
redbeargrlredbeargrl on January 23rd, 2012 03:57 pm (UTC)
Woldy Dear...
I can't think of anyone better to let the world finally know about Rita's shoe fetish. The poor dear made Imelda Marcos look like a rank amateur. I mean, have you seen that secret shoe closet of hers? My oh my.

Surely this has inspired a plot bunny?
woldywoldy on January 24th, 2012 01:36 am (UTC)
Oh god, I don't have time for any more bunnies - I'm wrestling 2 multi-pairing bunnies as it is! But I am now craving a story in which someone *coughPansycough* steals Rita's favourite pair of shoes & she has to track down the culprit.
redbeargrlredbeargrl on January 24th, 2012 03:09 pm (UTC)
Ohmy! The "punishment" for stealing shoes might be very interesting...at least from Rita's point of view. Of course, there is always the possibility that Pansy might like it...Hehehehe.

Oh my, that is one delicious bunny.

You know you want to; you know you want to... *Repeats in persuading voice.*

(Plus, it'd be super fun to know a story--even a story not much longer than a drabble--was inspired by a post of mine! :P)
dexstarrdexstarr on January 26th, 2012 05:25 am (UTC)
No promises... but those shoes are too good to pass up!

I think I could see either wearing those shoes (especially if Lucius was helping guide Narcissa's shoe selection for the evening).

Also, a different prompt came to my mind: a Cinderella evening of Rita lending Narcissa the shoes for a ball, and then deciding she wants Narcissa for herself after all...

Then, who says it's an either-or situation? Heels like that would last a while, I'm sure, especially with magical up-keep...

I could never walk in those, I'd fall right off :P

Hahaha. Once upon a time, that totally would have happened to me. Now, for some reason, I'm getting pretty reasonable at walking in heels! (Then, having a cane helps--easy way to get balance without anyone noticing. (; )
