Zippers and non-bootlike fabric are great! You can actually use spandex to just LOOK like boots, but actually just be more like a long legging. Trust me, it's a whole lot easier than trying to made a real boot.

Ooh, I'd be interested to know how you did it, Mei Lan.

boot covers are best either out of stiff or stiffened fabric so the keeps their shape and look like boots inteasd of spandex which makes them look like leggins.

I made them out of the same fabric as my shirt. I'd post a pic, but it's to large... :( oh well. It looked OK, but It could have been better.
