hmmmm...i just took some older "sketcher" shoes of mine that had that weird disney big feet look and resprayed them. they turned out pretty good and lots of people recognized the shoes as that belonging to sora's! ^___^ we still have to make minor adjustments to it though....^^;;

boot/shoe covers won't work as well since the shoes are well defined and are curved at the front end.

gomen...my devised way of doing it isn't the best but it worked out pretty good and didnt' take too long. and the gloves were actually made with foam, elastic fabric, and some metallic fabric (we're too lazy to mold the silver circle out of plastic).

i'm sure lots of people will have lots of cooler and better ways of making these accessories - mine is just one of many!! ^__^

Generally, they are really expensive... but I think Sora is totally wearing clown shoes. ^^ If you have the means, I'd suggest just buying a yellow pair and then accessorizing them as appropriate. It's possible to buy some shoes which are significantly larger than your feet, and trying to make them have the right look- the important part would be to make sure they still have a nice round toe...

Clown shoes....? Hum, yeah I know, I was in a circus school when I was younger, but... Er, it'd be hard to walk and/or fight and/or jump with clown shoes, ne...? o_O;;;

then get clown covers for the shoes, or u can build a large shoe frame with chicken wire and put canvas, sneaker material on top to actually build the shoe...depends on how much work u want to put in

I don't care about the work, I just wanna make'em like in the game... But I've to be able to fight against Darkside, Riku and Ansem (English names are the same as French ones? I don't really know)... ^^;;

yeah, same names ^__^ I'm sure you can find functionable clown shoes; I mean clowns do all sorts of dextrous movement in their shoes. If you can find those kinds of clown shoes, that's great, mebbe keep an eye out on e-bay an' stuff. I dunno how thrift stores are over there, but who knows? Check old theatres, and dance stores, and if not, make em!

Well, I poked around a bit for clown shoes... I've seen custom shops that sell them for $200+, and that seems a bit pricy for a costume. Finding those sites is easy, so here are some sites with shoe covers:

Another suggestion: Maybe you could buy a very large pair of shoes (sizes over 16 or something) and add some foam or something to the toe to round it out. Then you could cover the entire thing with yellow fabric. It might be cheaper than straight-out clown shoes, but still have the same look.

Cereal boxes??? ^^;;;;;;;;; Errrr... Yeah.
And Cecile, thanx for your ideas, that seems great!^^
And Alaria, you're right, but.... I guess clowns use to wear their shoes, ne??? Maybe I've to do the same... Yeah, wearing Sora's clothes all the time (the Keyblade'd be good to hit my teachers), wonderfuuuul!^^;;; lol
