Hi hi ^^

sorry if Im not posting this in the right place or etc. Im just doing this in a hurry ^^;;;;

Anyways I was wondering if these shoes would work http://www.overstock.com/?page=proframe&prod_id=1760918 for KH1 Kairi. But theres no white ones....>.< only brown and black! Is there a way to um "bleach" them? Then paint...?

Thanks in advance

You could either paint them or make bootcovers out of white fabric or pleather. I'd prefer bootcovers, so you can make the shoes a lot bigger as they are right now since Kairi's shoes are pretty huge ^^

You wouldn't be able to bleach those shoes--they're plastic/leather/whatever. ^^;;

What I would suggest is finding a pair of Crocs like these:

http://shop.crocs.com/pc-13-4-endeavor.aspx?reqid=13&reqProdTypeId=41p&subsectionname=footwear&section=products

and then covering them with fabric. Make the covers and then seal them on the shoes with caulk or hot glue (hot glue won't work as well though). Hope this helps! ^^

P.S.: Those eBay shoes look like extremely shoddy workmanship. >_> You can see the uneaven paint job if you look at the side view. And I think the little thing on the top of Kairi's shoes is a zipper, not a stop tie.

Yeah i agree the crocs would be a good idea, because they would be alot easier to work with than a leather shoe would be. And then you can get the white ones and not have to worry about painting/covering the bottom of the shoe.

And yeah, the ones on ebay dont look like they are made very well =\
You can definately see the uneven paint job!

The other day someone was asking about Sora's shoes, and someone referred them to a tutorial in a member's gallery... It could possibly help you out because they showed the steps they went through to create the Sora shoe! And Kairi's would probably be very similar to make, only different in shape.
Here is the link to that in case it interests you: Sora Shoe Tutorial (http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=39244&member=15991)

No she definately didnt have a zipper on her origonal Kingdom Hearts Shoes!
It was infact a... stop tie?? Is that what they are called? xD

I think the stitching is just deceiving sometimes.

Meh, s'okay! ^^ I just have this incredible eye for paintjobs that are uneven. ^^;; I called out the people who painted my friend's house once. They reeeally hated me afterwards. XD

But anyway, there are also some other crocs that I believe are bigger, but have holes in them. But you can easily cover those. ^^ I think bigger ones would be better for the overall look--everyone in KH has big shoes! XD

And I have no idea if the technical term is "stop tie" or not. XD Just a fun word I made up a log time ago. Hey, you knew what I was talking about! XD

And what do you know, it isn't a zipper!

But... it's not a gold stop tie! >_> ... <_<;; Sorry...

I think the crocs with holes are the same size as the ones without. I'm not going by the website though... They have become really popular on the pool deck lately as deck shoes (random fact=im a swimmer!!), although the ones most swimmers buy i think are cheaper than $35, or so i think... but i have never noticed a size difference between the ones with holes and the ones without. Although i may be wrong xD

First of all, I love your effin avitar XD

Second, they sell Kairi's KH1 shoes on ebay for about 50 dollars if I'm right. If you go to customized cosplay shops, like www.limebarb.com, she can make them for you too, either poofy or not poofy.

I would be careful of LimeBarb--I've heard some horror stories. >_> Secondly, I've seen croc-like shoes at Target, if you have those around. ^^

A friend of mine directed me to this site when I mentioned I was thinking of commissioning a wig from her:

Some crazy stuff in there. I kinda skipped over all the flames and read the ones that were rational. But you'd think that with all these people complaining there's something up... >_>;;

Yeah, I was kinda shocked too. >_> I'm glad that I found it though, before I forked over $125 for a poorly styled wig.

Yeah, I think shoe covers are the way to go. A few weeks ago I noticed I had some shoes that look similar to Kairi's KH shoes so, I decided to fix them up just for fun. I just painted right on the shoe. They look Really cool. But they aren't walking worthy... I used a sealing and it just came off. Perhaps I just need better Sealing, but I would really go with the covers.

OH! Something I learned about e-bay: It's not always such a great idea to buy things such as shoes from there. *hits head* Good Luck!

I'm working on making a pair for my friend soni right now, I just found an old pair of clogs i had- they had stuff on it so I used a seam ripper to take off the decorations.

Then I spray Painted them white and painted on the purple designs. Actually If you spray paint evenly, it can look really good, you just have to be careful to seal it and to use the right kind of spray paint.

Yea- those ones on ebay aren't accurate at ALL. i dont know what picture they were looking at- the soles are white not silver, and its light purple and dark purple not light purple and TEAL. *sigh* ok sue me i like to be accurate.

good luck! and if you possibly wanted me to make you a pair let me know, I will post the pics of the shoes once I'm done and link them here if you wish.
