    Boot covers

    Post  Koemix on Wed Aug 31, 2011 1:43 pm

    I saw this little topic here and thought I might as well ask...
    (maybe this is better for CNZ? D: idk)

    I'll be cosplaying Hatsune miku from vocaloid 2 at Auckgeddon this year (chick in my picture)
    and she has thigh high boots, now instead of actually buying the
    boots (For NZ $500+) I figured It'd be cheaper/easier to walk in
    If I made some boot covers instead (boot covers being fabric that
    goes over your shoes to make them look like boots.)
    I've got some stretchy black material for it but when i made a prototype of sorts it fell down after walking around for awhile
    (this is with elastic at the top)

    Anyone know how to make some boot covers that wont fall down? ^^;

    Its not quite the same as the actual character, but you could try some like.... mini suspenders for it almost haha, Or, if you want the budget version, you can get suspender belts and TIE them around the top of the "Boot", so around the thigh? and even CHEAPER than that black string around it? haha.

    >.< ..Suspenders ....
    I think this could be a good Modification
    BUT theres always this way
    get some elastic and sew parts of it to the boot cover so essentially the elastic will be there to hold onto your leg while holding onto the boot cover. Also elastic is dirt cheap...
    at Davids emporium it is like $1 per meter and you shouldnt need 1m >.<

    it sounds rather confusing(sooo clear in my head XD)

    I've tried it so I know it works (i made gauntlets.. not extra long boots XD)


    ehh hope it helps. (also Suspenders do sound good) Embarassed

    @admin - I ant that cheap its just i spent most of my moneys on fabric xDD
    my dads partner suggested that but I dont wanna look like a slut;;
    I might just wear stockings with garters that just show under the skirt to give the impression I'm wearing boots.

    (sllliiightly awkward talking about this with guys ;;; )

    @lil-craka - yeah i know~ (looked there after i went to spotlight OTL) theres elastic around the top of the bootcover to hold it up, but I've tried walking around with it and it feels like i need to keep pulling it up
    lol you perv muneeb xD
