Hello everyone~ ^^ I need some input.

I'm going to be cosplaying Alice from Pandora Hearts, and I need advice on how to do her boots.

Alice! http://i586.photobucket.com/albums/ss309/Tsubaki25/alice.jpg

Now, I know it's not exact, but for the "base" I choose these https://www.cosworx.com/product_images_popup.php?id=10786

Now, for the "top part" I was thinking of using black fabric around the inside of the opening. But for the middle I'm a bit torn. Should I glue on fabric? Black duct tape? (that seems like it may be a bit tacky..) Paint? If so what sort of paint? o.O

^-^; also, any tips on how to get the gold points on the laces?

I can't see what the front of that boot Looks like, but you could make and insert a black fabric tongue into the boot.

For the points, you could maybe try sandwiching the ends of the laces between two pieces of gold paperboard or those metallic craft adhesive paper sheets.

As for the base I think it would do fine, but you would proably have to rip out the tongue which could make it look a bit rough. As for the black inside part I would say just wear black socks, but cut the indent from the top and hem it.
For the gold parts I think the gold paper would go.
