Plastic molded shoes... just like Barbie




one thing i remember from my barbie owning days was all the plastic boots and shoes they had. when walking around the village window shoping i found the above shoes which are an adult equivilant to barbie's plastic ones.

sort of a designer variation of the jelly shoes, these are much more slick and come in a range of colours but apparently limited standard sizes at the shop otherwise i would of snaped up a pair.

and looking at the slide show here it seems like ankle length boots are the next step in his collection.

and here's all of them online in the "Love Robots" collection!!:

being a bit (well alot) of a material fetishist, i did really like the soft plastic vinyl they were made from and this gave me the idea, well maybe much longer boots - thigh length could be made.

or maybe even a full mannequin shape to be cast and the could be worn....

I saw those shoes, and now, you have me wondering what a full-body suit, mask, etc., would feel like made of that stuff....gah. :)

Now I am going to have to unplug and chill out for a bit, you have me all goo-goo eyed and talking like a kewt widdle dolly poo, which wouldn't be sooo bad but it looks freaky having some chunky nearly 40-something fellow squeaking like a pwetty pull-string toy, **giggelsqueek**

Gah. 8-| If I weren't such a perv I'd be scared. *lol*

I've been obessing on how the larger items of clothing would be put on...my half-educated guess would be that at some point small, discreet zippers would have to be molded/glued in place so that you can wiggle a leg into a thigh-high boot, for example, then zip it up to get a proper tight fit. :)

Not to mention, how someone would move, if say a lady doller were encased in a full suit of that material, since the whole molded "Jelly shoe" material does seem to have a good deal less give to it than say PVC, I'd imagine the movements with a fairly tight and complete catsuit even would be really stiff, cute and dolly.....

**sighs** :D

Sweet dreams are made of this...now if we can get folks to *not* disagree, *lol* without my having to travel the world, etc.

(it takes all kinds though I guess, everybody's looking for *something*, *LOL*)

after some emails back and forth to australia it seems the shoes are based on a south american type of plastic shoes. various designers have worked with the orginal company to make new designs.
