As title says, I'm doing a Roy Mustang cosplay.
I need boots that are black, laced on the bottom.

If anyone has one for sale at a reasonably cheap price please let me know. (I'm on a real real tight budget.:bigcry: )

Or if you can refer me to site please do. :)

Check your local second-hand store, like Salvation Army, I have found many boots like the ones you need, not to mention have a pair myself, and they tend to sell them for a very low price. Another store that you can check out would be a military surplus store, they will have military-issue uniforms and other great items at discounted prices, (not as cheap as the second-hand store). I once found a flak-vest at a nearby surplus store for only $30!

I'm not sure how much accuracy your going for, but from the pictures I've seen of all the military personel, none of the boots have laces.. but it depends on the look your going for. I found mine at Walmart for under 20 bucks.. resale shops are good, and sometimes you can find good things on ebay..

Good luck with your Mustang outfit, I'd love to see it when it's finished.

I checked my local mall for boots and the closest I found were for girls only, all they had were girl boots, anything else had zippers and were too short.:confused:

And I have no thrift store in my local area to go to, it would take a 30-40 minute ride and my parents dont have that much time to spend to take me.

I'm debuting this for AX07 and hopefully it will be done a month or half before the con and I can post some pictures before then hopefully.
And I don't even have a photographer.:bigcry:

Whats even worse is that I got the perfect Roy Mustang haircut today, my mom did the haircut for me and by the time it will be perfectly grown out in time for the con.

Do you guys know any possibility that someone on these forums would have a spare? This is my first actual cosplay and I want to be my best without my bro's humiliation, you should hear about the things they say about this site. Makes you want kick them in the arse three times before they hit the ground.:mad:

Sorry about that, went a little off topic hehe...:crest:

spare? As is boots or costume? If you don't have the time to sew one you could always get someone to commision one, or worse case ebay..

As for the boots, I've seen people also use those rubber boots used for I think fishing or rain boots..

Truthfully the shoes shouldn't matter as much as the outfit itself, if you have the jacket, pants and butcape right, then the other things just ad to it. Don't forget if you find a pair of boots that you like but are the wrong color, there's always shoe polish and such.. (even spray paint, which my friend used on her Edward boots). The boots I have I had to alter, they had silver chains and rings on them which I took off.. so depending on what you really want to do..
