Kyoto Ohata, a Japanese designer and self-professed bird appreciator, very cleverly transformed a pair of plain black pumps into a realistic wearable felt pigeons so as to not scare the birds as she walked through Ueno Park in Tokyo. Rather, she hoped to become friends with them.

(translated) I like high heels as pigeons and I want to become popular with a group of pigeons.
