Steampunk slippers for a party

I love Isotoner Ballet style Slippers and they are great for decorating.

We are having an Engagement-Bachelor/Bachelorette-Anniversary-Shower party before and during a Steampunk Ball here in Boise on March 12th and I am painting a pair of slippers for event.

I finished them last night, trying to decide if I should add some rhinestones to the gears on the toes

Finished slippers

the clamp is just to spread the material tight so I could paint on it and the toes are stuffed with tissues

Kitty Poe and the Tetris pieces

So I am making 50 tetris pieces for a dance on Saturday, they have to be done in 2 days and so far I havve cut out 100 pieces of neon paper and started making about 6 of them… each piece is 11×5.5 in and has to be folded, outlined and then taped together (in some cases cut in half to make the right shapes) and since the theme of the dance is 8-bit love I am putting paper hearts on them at random (had to cut those out too)

Now I am not sure how i am going to get these done in time and I can use all the help I can get BUT this is NOT what I had in mind..
