  6. @Mau Generally you wouldn't do a lace-up bootcover with stretch fabric. Personally I would paint a lace-up boot to match, rather than trying to make it, since it requires stiffer materials. Krylon Fusion is a good spraypaint for synthetic shoes (ie not real leather).

    ReplyDelete
  7. @mf(x) : oh, i get it. so, you're going to paint the laces, somehow similar to the boots you're gonna cosplay?

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Mau No, just paint the shoes & replace the laces.

  9. AMANDA conner wants some terra boots!!

  10. Out of curiosity, since my costume's shoes just look like one long thigh-high panty-hose, what if a cheap flat shoe was used instead of a heeled shoe? Would the rules of this tutorial still apply?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, it definately works! I have done some boots (non-stretch method) using just $1 mesh sandals from Chinatown as the base, and it worked no problem. Ballet-style plain flats would be your best bet, anything without embellishments or laces makes a perfectly fine base shoe.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What material did you use for the blue boots? Matte Milliskin as well? Great tutorial, thanks for your help

    ReplyDelete
  13. what material did you use for the red boots? also what type of shoes did you use for the thigh high boots? im cosplaying as black rock shooter,if you look her up the shoes you used for the thigh high boots are asolutely perfect, also what material would you recomend for these boots, i need them too stay up on my leg. thanks shannen, you can contact me on shannen.rebecca@hotmail.com

  14. Hi!
    I used this tutorial for making the boots for my Sango cosplay. The boots turned out great! So many cosplayers neglect the shoes on a costume, but they really completed the outfit, and I even won an award. :D Second place in Best Craft! Probably partly thanks to the boots! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hey,
    I needed to know if this method would still work if using a non-stretch material. The reason I ask is the boots I'm working on actually go over the pants and they're loose pants. Since stretch material would show the bunching on the pants that won't work so I wanted to see if a non-stretch would still work with this method just using the second way of attaching.

    ReplyDelete
  16. If your using shot high heels and making long boots out of it how do you make it stay up on your leg?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Loved this tutorial. Can I get more info on thigh high boots? Briezy32@gmail.com

  36. A website that challenges you.
    Online casino site is a new choice for people who want to rest or relax. Use the opportunity to have fun. The online casino is a healing machine that will help you relax from work. Because not only to play to kill time. Online casinos also allow you to earn money in return for you can limit yourself. In addition, the casino. Online is also a form of games that many can choose to play as you like. But for beginners who are learning to play. We recommend the game of crabs to you. Because this game will give you more opportunities than the opportunity to gradually play a little bit mixed with the opportunity to get you more money than other types of games. The format is similar. With gourd crab fish. We have pictures and you can choose any of them. Match with the one you choose to get the prize money easily. By this game you do not have to think or use a lot of brain to headache. Just pick your favorite picture and play it easily. I recommend this game for those who start playing online casino. And your leisure time. Will not be boring anymore. Contact us at the website.

  49. It’s obvious some patients with herpes are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Sikies Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr Sikies. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write him on mail Drsikies@gmail.com He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital, warts, ALS, BV, UTI, Virginal infection, Genital, Wart, HPV, Hepatitis A/B, Good luck, HSV, Pregnancy, Ex back.
