To add spikes, first use a wipeable marker to mark dots on the back of the shoe where you want each spike to be. (Note that the spikes should be placed only in the shoe’s upper; you don’t want to drill into the actual heel.) You can use a variety ... Read More

Picking a costume for Halloween is hard work, if you take it seriously (which I do, thank you very much). Finding the perfect balance of funny, interesting, and comfortable to walk around in is incredibly difficult. And forget buying something at a store if you want to avoid tacking the word “sexy” to the beginning of your costume and freezing to death.
