Shoe Vader: the Empire Kicks Back

Well, I guess Facebook is good for more than just not working, it is also good for promoting your hobby.

Enter Christi, a friend of an internet friend, who saw some picks of kicks on facebook and she wanted a pair for her husband. So these are my first out-of-state shoes for someone I have never met.
Cory works for Blizzard, the greatest videogame company of all time. I should have graduated from college with a minor in Starcraft. I certainly put more hours in on that game than I did in many of my courses. So I hope these SciFi themed shoes fit it over on their campus (along with the giant bronze statue of an Orc astride a wolf).
I am particularly happy about how the translucent buttons from the chest plate turned out.
In the interest of full disclosure, my brother also works for Blizzard, which ended up saving me on postage as I was able to deliver the shoes to him when I was in the O.County when I was there for a wedding. (more on that later)

But all of these connections to Blizzard makes me wonder why I haven't done a starcraft-themed shoe(Perhaps it is that pesky copyright infringement law)? Maybe I will do a diablo themed shoe with unicorns shooting rainbows. Any takers?
