Pretty goth shoes: DIY

I have had a hard time getting the cool goth platform shoes I wanted.
Here's the story on how I got my new "homemade" shoes. Take some grown up by the hand as I let the story begin...
The shoes underneath have been my quest for a very long time.
I found them on a picture, but to find them "live" where I actually could buy them has been hell!
Here's my dream shoes:
I've gotten so many helpful tips from everybody that have read my call out for help but unfortunately I never found these exact ones.
The ones found was always too high and not shiny.
I wanted boots that were medium high - mainly because I often wear lace stockings and wanna show them off.
No use looking cool if noone can see it!
And I love glitz and glam so I need my boots to be shiny.

After failing like a snail trying to use powder for a matte look I just had to take my business elsewhere - and I found these:
Not what I was looking for - but they had potential!
When I goth them they were not as shiny as on the picture, but not as matte as leather look either.
They are so comfortable and are my absolute favorite boots ever (well, at the moment)!
I bought them with the intent of altering them.

This is what I did:
Snip snip
So much better
Ta-daa! Almost as they were supposed to be. I didn't want a satin bow, but that was all I had at home.
Now I have changed to what it was supposed to be to begin with: dirty white crochet lace bows. So cute!
Here is how they look on my lovely feet

I think there is some "Today's style" picture recently with the new bows.
