View Full Version : KH Shoes?

Kingdom Hearts shoes are obviously very disney, besides the fact that they have disney characters in it they have the ever famous Mickey Mouse Style Shoes. XD; Anyway, I plan on doing some a from KH and I've been studying the shoes.. and have been stumped. I've very strong on having accuracy to the costume and the shoes just seem to difficult. The one that I am trying to mimic is the Halloween Sora one, but I guess this could just be a general- as most of their shoes are huge anyways. ^_^; That way, just any ideas for any charcters can go here and people can find information! Whee-multitasking! XD

Now, I was thinking at first: Boot Covers! ^_^ yes that will work-- then I realize it won't, because I'd need to find a shoe with a relitivly same shape.So forget that.. it'd be hard trying to find shoes like that. So then I move on to perhaps forming something with wire... ? XD; No idea.

Do you think it may just be easier to possibly find a shoemaker and get them to make them? Or try the boot cover method..? ^_^; A friend of mine ordered some shoes from another country because she has connections there, because her parents used to live there.

So.. questions? Comments? Ideas? Ramblings? ^_^ Please share--for any type of KH cosplay shoe wise. Perhaps we can get something off that..

For my first try on HT Sora, I just wore boots(with heels), which just didn't cut it.
For my second try, I just used these old Nike Presto sneakers I had (they had no lacing on them) and painted them entirely black, and then added the little white strip to them.
They turned out PERFECTLY (pics are in my gallery, tho I'm not so sure if you can get a clear shot of them :/ ), and not to mention they were comfy X3

Not to de-rail from the main HT Sora situation, but I'm actually looking into a BHK cosplay and his shoes are a bit out of the ordinary as well. I was tinking of just editing existing shoes to make the design and I have yet to attempt this.

Well, For starters those shoes seem to be the easier of KH cosplay I have seen. Either short black boots or black clogs- slightly modded: they have tons of clogs @ k-marts in my area, if you cannot find short boots. The way I did KH Kairi's clogs- I can post a pic l8r if anyone wishes was using a clog as my base and hot gluing the fabric into place and everything except for one of the jewels has stayed through convention wearing. You could always use black foam to make it look pointier if there is no type of clog/short boot available to you in that style. Hope I helped any.
