Time for a little update.
Part of Jessica's look is red high heel pumps. TPE dolls may have foot bolts that are great to protect the very soft TPE material, but only when the doll's feet are flat on the floor. With the tall heel the feet want to slide down and jam the soft toes.

The easiest way to protect the feet and toes is to make plates the shape of the inner part of the shoes, and this is how I made them.

The first step is to make a template of the inner shoe with thin card stock or a manila folder. I happen to use a piece of junk mail.

After fitting the card to the shoe, I lined up the template on the sole to the bolts and pushed a drill bit through the card to the bolt heads. Next use the template on a piece of 18-20 gauge stainless steal, and cut it out with a cutoff wheel, and shape it with a grinder. Also you can flip the template over to make the other foot. Making the plate a little smaller than the shoe will make it easier to get the shoes on and off. Also if there is any differences in the shoes.

After the shape of the plate is done bend the plate to fit the curve of the shoe. It is better to bend it before drilling because the plate will want to bend at the holes, and you don't want that.

Once the plates are fitted to the shoe, mark and drill the bolt holes, then de-burr with a DA sander.
Now you're ready to put them on your doll. I changed the cap screws for pan head screws;





I also used ultra low liners to cover the plates and feet;



Now she is ready to stand;





Now that I have her costume together it is time to get some pictures.

good job on the foot plates i'm sure many members will be making some or having them make if they can't do it themselves.

Thanks Incred,
Really interesting seeing how you made the foot plates.
Most of my girls wear flat Dr Martin boots , mainly because I I had not found a good method of how to stop the feet from sliding in high heel shoes. I did drill a pair of shoes and attached them to my WM158 feet, for many reasons that was not the best of plans.
Thanks for sharing

Tommo

I'd like to think so Phil, but she is probably relieved

I liked what you did with Roger. One of the things that is holding me up from taking pictures of her is lack of background scenery.

That and the backlog in the queue.

Phil's image gave me a great laugh!

Great review and images Incred, kind of making it very hard hard to resist procurement, despite room issues.
