Okay, I really don't get why I'm asking this, as they should be common, but....

oh god ive been searching every shoe store i can find in my area for a pair of plain black lace up boots for my Rinoa costume, I want them cheap too, but i havent been able to find any!!! every place i check has regular "in style" boots with no ties, and tall slim heels to them. The only place i can find anything similar to them are Hot Topic and Newberry comics, but they are reallly expensive and a little too clunky for my taste, what really irks me is that 6 months ago, they were everywhere! now they just dropped off the face of the earth!

Try a department store. ^_^ I've seen Rinoa boots everywhere. If they have a buckle just add one.

well the buckle could be made out out of anything, even aluminum foil, if you know how to keep it smooth. you could even use belts on them, cut down really small.

edit: ive tried local departments stores here, Filenes, Macy's Nordsroms, JcPenny, Lord and Taylor, none of them had boots even remotely close. they were all the lastest frilly suade boots with the zippers on them, without ties. i guess theyve just gone out of style, so stores dont carry them anymore, but i used to see them all the time, and i didnt buy them when i had the chance >.<

LOL!! If this helps, I got a pair of Black boots from KMart (LMAO!! I don't think I would spend that much ^^;;;;;;;; ) and with elertic tape (Which looks like the material of the boots) I attached this buckles (The material for the buckles will remain unrevealed).

Bad pic, but it's the best I have (Please don't look at my shorts they were falling down ;_; )

Dude! Your costume looks good! As for the boots, the buckles were purdyfuls and shiny. Electric tape? What is that? o.O;;

Chibi-Lisa
03-18-2003, 07:46 PM
LOL!!! That stuff is like God in my house ^^;; (It's tape that blocks electricity which is used to attach wires and stuff). Oh and thanx for the compliment ^^ I need to take better pics (lol and take in my shorts).

I just used a pair I bought a looong time ago from God knows where.. I added my buckle by gluing silver metallic wrapping paper to a little piece of cardboard and laced through it. o.O;

The toes are round though, not too much like Rinoa's, but worked okay.
