For the few of you who gave me kind words of encouragement last night. It was a dark evening for me and they ment more to me than i can write. Things did get better as the evening went but a small feeling of doubt still worries me.
So scared of losing something i hold dear to me. Something i wish i didnt take advantage of. I sit here fearing for the worse and i cant bring myself to do anything except write a few sad words that no one will hear and stare at my walls around me as fear and anxiety squeeze my chest so hard i can barely breath.

Here’s a detailed explaination of how I’m making my hooves for you and anyone else thats curious.
What I’m using:
- Cheap sneakers (I got them from rite aid for like 8 bucks) - Furniture movers - Black tights - Faux fur - Craft Foam
I started out by removing the foam from the furniture movers, and stacking them about 4 tall and gluing them together. The idea was to make a platform for the hoof. Than I cut up the sneaker so that only the ball of the shoe remained along with a strap so it went around the back of my heel.
So you kinda get this.
(I did it this way because I’m going to a big event and I want to be able to put my heel down if I lose balance. I also dont have a hacksaw to remove the heels of high heels)
So than I just shimmied the shoe down some tights and glued it down (use lots of hot glue. Than from here just add some craft foam to make the hoof look like a hoof and add some faux fur to make it look nicer than tada you should have some cheap and easier hooves for a costume.
