Flash 55 - τρεισκαίδεκα

"13" sketch mechanical pencil on printer paper ~ vanessa v kilmer (c) 20130913

It’s hard to find shoes that fit when you have thirteen toes: six on the left, seven on the right. Cinderella’s stepsisters had it good compared to me. They cut off their heels and toes to get a prince; to move up in the world. I had to cut off three toes to comfortably move.

  3. That does seem to me like an over abundance of toes. Then again, if you'd had a cobbler, maybe it would have been the right number.

  4. It would come in handy when trying to pick something off the floor without bending over.

  5. I am wondering what the genetic or economic benefit of this would be? Assuming a tendency toward this condition . . .

    (30% greater sales of toenail polish?)

    1. I'm thinking they are for added stability and balance to counteract increasing bulk.

  6. Great sketch! I have what I consider average-sized feet but women's shoes are so narrow that I only know one woman that doesn't have trouble with shoes and that woman is 5'2 83 lbs with an extremely petite frame, I am not even sure that women's shoes are designed to fit women's feet. Even men's shoes my husband is composed of rectangles/squares (from the back he is a geometrically perfect rectangle lol) his feet are also square and he has a lot of trouble with shoes. I sympathize because if shoe shopping was any harder I'd be barefoot lol Let's not talk about jeans and the pin leg requirement.

  8. You made them so symmetrical I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't said. maybe cutting off one toe would give the need balance :)

  9. Ah - lucky thirteen? Maybe not so much. Isn't in amazing the things women (me included) will do to their feet for the sake of fashion?
