Got started on Quorra's boots today. URGH. I wish I'd had a teeny-tiny hole punch. She has these small holes in the "flap" parts of the boots, annnd my smallest leather punch was wayyyy too big. Instead I spent two hours using my Dad's old circuit tester to poke through and trimming off pieces with scissors. Then pinning them on to the base boot is really hard due to the folds around the ankles when you're wearing them/they've been broken in a bit and that it's SOOOOOO thick. I also still have to put on the lights, sew the flaps and snaps, and use glow paint on the sole and toe-tip for the lights since if I tried to make a wired LED one I'd wreck the boots.
.....but oh man these things are going to be BADASS. On four-inch heels.
