Akaito stuffz

So, I'm getting an Akaito cosplay made, and I need some help on a few things (ref at the bottom)..

So I can't find a good picture of his shoes in this specific outfit..I have seen cosplayers with normal black shoes, then I have seen some with things like these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sale-Cheap-C...item2a205ffb41
I know these are meant for the WHITE/red outfit so I don't think they'd work but yea..I don't want to spend that kinda money if I can help it..

Then there's the headset..
Anyone know a cheap one? I really more want one that's like this (if they make any):
Clip on headphones, but with a Mic on it..I don't want the over the head thing..But I want to use them as headphones as well..If they don't, how would I make really REALLY good looking ones out of real clip ons?

Thanks for any help

REF1
I don't have a ref for the headset but I think you get it lol

for the shoes i think just plain black boots would be perfect... as for the headset, i always say dont use real headphones for vocaloid cosplays just cause it becomes hard to hear during the day... id make them out of foam and foam core w clips to get them into the hair

Well there's no reason to make them out of foam because they are so small..I can ewasily buy a cheap pair at walmart..I would rather not use fake ones. My mp3 player is hella loud and it's a preference I have and won't change my mind

Have you ever been to a Flea market for the headphones?

They tend to have a bunch of neat stuff there. Although a bit dirty they usually come through with what you need at a much cheaper price in comparison to retail.

I wish I could..There are litterally zero anywhere near me....That's something I would have done too and thought about but alas, it is impossible....Sadface....
I know some pawn shops take them with MP3 players but the ones up here don't have the kind with a mic..I still don't know if they even exist....

EDIT:
In case people wanna know..Which I assume my explianation isn't that great..Take something like this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Red-3-5mm-On...item589843aa83
Yes they have to be black with red accents to match my cosplay
Then you put a mic on one of the earphones..That's what I am looking for..Or..If I can figure out how to make a mic connect to this (the mic doesn't have to work, but it has to look real) without it looking like I broke one and just glued it on..But a smooth transistion..If that makes enough sense..

What do you mean? His ARE clip on....

See that? That's the cover art on the box. See how he has that mic that goes to his ear? That's what I need, But one that I can use as real headphones to listen to music, and red rather then blue..

ive gutted a few headphones before
they are mostly the same on the insides
if you want to go all out id say take the parts from a mic set and put them in that set
y just have to drill a hole for the mic to pop out

but and easy fix is to drill a hole and glue a fake on in
ive made them from the straws from cans of WD40, compressed air, and other cans that have the thin red tube like a coffee straw

add a bit of scrap wonderflex, friendly plastic, or what have ya for the tip
then paint

im not sure if this helps
but i hope it gives a few ideas

TY
good times to all
