View Full Version : Bleach Arrancar Footwear

Once again I am stuck on a small detail. I am in the process of assembling my costume and I was wondering about weather its worth getting the proper footwear. I know in the manga they wear straw sandals, but because the bottoms are so long would it even matter? If so would it be ok to wear black shoes, or some slightly tweaked loafers?

Here is a link to what they look like, sorry this was the best I could find.

Since you're new, I won't yell at you for not checking the forums first, but please, next time use the search function before you post a new thread.
There are not one, but two very popular and updated Bleach threads:

Thank you Benihime for linking to my Footwear guide :D

Hakama are not long at all, they should stop at about an inch above the ankle, so your shoes will DEFIANTLY be visible. It is always up to the cosplayers discretion of how accurate they want to be, but if it was me YES shoes are important. They are just as important as the rest of the costume. Often times its the shoes and the hair that can make or break a cosplay, or put a good cosplay on a whole new level.

Arrancar do in fact wear boots, so altering a pair of found black boots can be pretty straight forward. I say the hour it takes to glue ribbon to a shoe is worth it.
