|The style Himself likes|
The trouble is, I don't know exactly what style it is that I want to make. I've never made shoes before, so I want something relatively easy to create for my first endeavor. I've been collecting images for a while, and I thought I'd put them up here to see if anyone had an opinion on which I should make.

If I choose the simple slipper style I'd want to figure out how to do the gold embossing found on both of these examples.

I'm thinking about heading up to the Pendleton outlet before Jule next weekend to see if I can find some wool gauze to make "winter Romans" Since most of my Roman gear was made in Texas, it's mostly made of cotton or a linen/cotton blend. I'd like to make an outfit for that competition, but it's about a month away and I haven't made any of what I would like to enter. On the positive side, it's Roman, so it's not that hard to make quickly. But the wool would be more historically accurate, and it would be nice to have something that was more correct than what I'm wearing now, and it would be great to have something to wear in cooler weather that was my persona.
