Well, I need to make some konoha sneaks for my Mizuki costume and I'm at a loss as how to go about it. My first idea was buying some boots and making radical alterations, but now I'm not so sure. Anybody have any experience, ideas? Thanks in advance.

there should be a thread about it....cant remember where it is tho...sry...i made some tho and all you need to do really is just go out and find a pair of cheapo sandals(make sure they are not the kind swith a plastic/rubber thong toe thingy) and then i made a pattern based off of pics i found throughout the manga and also based off my own feet. then sew the fabric parts together, cut the thong thingy off(trust me it gets in the way and it looks tacky[well only the part that hangs down, the other strapy like thngs that attach to the sind can be sewn into the covering for added stability]) and then sew/staple/glue/whatever you can do but attach the fabric part to the sandal base...just make sure it doesnt look tacky cuz too many naruto cosplayers sandals look tacky...i have a few pics of my pair in my gallery so just take a look to get ideas if that helps...but i would look in the naruto cosplay thread for the sandals thread first...either that or search the forums for it. but goodluck with them.

There are already a lot of threads on this. Do a forum search. ;) Here's the pattern for a pair of sandals.

Also, I just made some last weekend, and I have photos in my gallery. Just shoot me a message if you're interested in how I made them. ^_^

I used this pattern, and while the basic shapes look great when put together, the actual pattern piece sizes are all out of whack. It took a lot of tinkering, resizing, praying and cursing to get the pattern to work right for me, but it's a great place to start.

Unfortunately I don't have any pics of my Anko outfit up yet to show you how they turned out.

Yeah, I just placed the pattern in Adobe Illustrator, and the measurements don't seem to work. I'm going to try to re-work them and maybe post a pdf of my final version of the pattern. Everybody who's is replying to this thread, thanks alot for all the info.

Hmm. For me, it was nothing so complicated. The first thing I did was go out and buy a cheap pear of black flip flops. I cut the straps and glued big black tube socks to go on top, folding everything accordingly. Unfortunately, I need a whack of fabric tape to keep it on.
If you want something simple that requires no sewing and is almost guarenteed to fall apart (not to mention cleanable) then try this: get two pairs of blue tube socks (the longer the better) and cut the seam at the toe of two. Get an old pair of scandals (or new if they're cheap :)). The best for this is a Teva shoe ( http://www.sackundpack.de/images/teva.jpg ) or something similar. Then, take the extra pair of socks you have and cut strips out of them to cover the sandal and glue them/sew them/double side tape them to the shoe. Put the socks on, role the socks down to the desired length, and you have some very Naruto-like shoes.
This is the only picture I have of them, saddly (I'm the one with the red hair ;)):

I used black tape, so it shines more, but generally, it worked out very well. Comfortable and Naruto stylin' :D

I hear ya.

*look of sympathy*

That sounds exactly like the experience Starlightslk and I had last weekend.

Anyway, I'd love to see those Anko pics! ^_^
