Where's Perry?

Those of you at NDK today may have noticed a very familiar green platypus / secret agent at the Artist's Alley... Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb!

Great show - it's got great characters, great stuff for the parents and the kids, and an excellent humor.  I've had my laugh out loud moments watching this show.  Favorite character of all time?  Hm... probably Candace.  She's funny in the way that you know she will fail every time to catch the two main characters.  Well, maybe "fail" is a harsh word, but her success rate is pretty low...

I went for a simple design here similar to the Pedobear shoes - Perry has a very simplified, yet distinct face, so I wanted to keep that immediacy in the shoes.  You can pretty much tell from a while away that is is Perry the Platypus and Agent P at work.  I'm sure kids will love it!

In a size 8 if you were wondering.

  1. Question:

    My boyfriend recently made shoes very similar to these for me, also using Faded Glory shoes. The texture in vinyl and so the very first day I wore these masterpieces the paint started chipping and falling off in large sections. How do you keep that from happening? What materiel or preventative steps did you use?
