Jump to: navigation, search

Cursed objects are typically everyday mundane objects that have been imbued with black magic. Cursed objects will cause any person that comes into contact with them misfortune and eventually death. One of the safest ways to nullify the effects of a cursed object, is by placing it into a curse box, a specialized box designed to contain magic through various sigils. They can be destroyed through a ritual using cayenne pepper and bone ash in a graveyard.

The cursed ballet slippers, purchased at the Out with the Old antique store, had the ability to compel people to wear them, even adjusting their size to accommodate anyone.

The first victim of the slippers was a ballet dancer by the name of Irina Koganzon, who upon putting the slippers on danced until her feet literally came off. After being taken into evidence, the young daughter of a police officer, Tracy, spotted the slippers and was compelled to put them on and dance, and she could have died if not for Sam and Dean being at the police station and removing them from the young girl's feet. Upon confiscating the slippers, the slippers make their way into the backseat of the Impala, where Dean admits he is having the urge to "Prince Siegfried himself into oblivion." After retrieving the curse box made for the slippers, Sam puts them back in the box after noticing Dean getting the urge to put them on, which wore off when they were contained.
