Fun Link Friday: Pigeon Heels

If you haven’t seen the Pigeon Heels posts going around in English-language media semi-uncredited, you’re in for a treat. Here are the original Japanese posts by Keiko Otsuhata (as known as Keiko Ohata), who created a pair of shoes that looked like pigeons so she wouldn’t scare the birds and because she liked the pun on high heels (hai hiiru, ハイヒール).  You can read Otsuhata’s original post, which includes instructions for making the shoes, on Daily Portal Z (「”ハト”ヒールでハトとよくなりたい」).

You can follow Otsuhata on her blog 妄想工作 or on Twitter. (And yes, she ships outside Japan!)
