Studs and Spikes

Recently a lot of designers have been popping out shoes, bags, and clothing studded and spiked to my little heart's content. I of course, cannot afford such an expense. Thats where my master diy skills come into play.

Feast your eyes on these kick ass beauties though:

        Exhibit A: Louboutin and Rodarte                                  

 Exhibit B: "The porcupine"
 Louise Goldin for TopShop

Exhibit C: "The Stegosaurus Tail Spike heel"                  

  Exhibit D: "The Balsac Jaws of death heel"                             
   ...Better known as the ultimate metal heels  

I just bought myself a 40 pack of spikes on ebay and have a couple of english cone studs that i'll be using on this little project as well. Still debating on silver or black for the actual shoe though.

Upon my recent obsession for all things spiked  I quite honestly wish acquire some super large spikes. Mind you, not any kind of large spike, im thinking hurtyourself-immakillyou 8 inch spikes. (Which by the way i did find online here.) I want to put those babies on the shoulders of my jacket and trot around like bowser. Yep, I want to be the jackass at the show that scrapes all the assholes in the pit "Oops, was that your face? Sorry about that."

My google searching for spiked heels and placement inspiration also yielded a really nice tutorial that was posted on a while back. Check it out here
