Shoes :/

I plan on doing a IA cosplay, which really isn't too hard to put together. The only thing that has stumped me is the shoes.

Reference:

I have been looking in shoe stores and online a little and I can't find anything even close (even if I had to modify them) and I don't know...would shoe covers work for something like this?

Please help! Thank you~

IA boots~ easier than i thought

yeah hiking boots would be purfect OR you could probably make them by getting white rain boots! cut them and well.. do this

http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/a...IEM2/C2482.jpgFirst i guess u gotta sew down the front middle(if u wanna go for the boot shape thats visible in the 2nd pic.)then u basically paint the bottom pink, add a loop for a belt, and sew in some pink on the front of the boots. after that, all thats left is making 2 pink belts to go around the shoes. woah i made that sound easy.lol it probably is. just dont forget to sew the edges of the top of the boots afterwards like in this pic(its barely visible but its there) otherwise it might tear. i think this might work i have no idea about modifying shoes or anything but this seems like what i would do. only problem would be- where do u get white rain boots?

Ah I never thought about rain boots, I was always looking at regular boots xD But yes! That could work quite nicely!
But your right, where could I find white rain boots when spring stuff is coming out in stores? >_< And the pink belt might be difficult too. But I can totally paint it pink and all that jazz.
Thank you so much for your help!

If I was doing this I would get nice base shoes and make covers for them... You just have to pick something with the right sole and heel as those are the areas you won't be able to modify easily. You can use craft foam inside the covers to support the 'sections', and then add the details.
