View Full Version : Minato Arisato (Persona 3) boots
02-17-2009, 12:24 AM
I need help. I'm trying to find a relatively cheap pair of shoes that I could modify (mostly paint blue with leather paint) into Minato's shoes. The closest thing I've been able to find is engineer boots, but they run from $70-200.
Does anyone know of a cheaper alternative?

I would definitely say boot covers are going to be your best friend in this case. If you have a goodwill store or vintage store nearby, look around in them for a pair of boots or shoes with similar heels to the boots you want to make. As for a boot cover tutorial, there are much better ones on the forum and on the web. Here's one on cosplay.com:
Here's a simple and easy to understand tutorial that shows the basics of how a boot cover works if you've never worked with one before:
And here's one for non-stretchy boots, which is what you probably need :P
