Yoko Cosplay

Hello! Im new at Cosplay and I plan on Cosplaying Yoko from Gurren Lagann at Anime North this year.

for those who dont know... Heres some figurine pictures of her:

I have some questions on How Im to create her costume though. Though its mostly straight foward, the boots are gonna be the hardest... Is there anyone who knows how to make them.. or is willing too. Of course I'd pay, but I would love it. LOOOOVEEE it if someone knew someone that could do this kind of thing.

Please and Thank you.. Sooo much :3

A suggestion on Yoko's boots - You can probably just buy a pair of boots that look similar to hers, then either do a boot cover, or paint over the boots. I haven't exactly had experience to be able to help you with it further, but people on cosplay.com have discussed boot covers for quite some time, so if you search for the threads by the search function, you may be able to find something. =)

My suggestion for the bikini top is also the same - find a black bikini top similar to her style, then paint the flares on.

Good luck!

I'm cosplaying Yoko too and I just finished painting flames on my top. ^_^ I'm not going to buy white boots though because Yoko's boots are VERY loose at the top, and it'd be impossible to find boots that loose. I already have a pair of black ankle boots so I'm going to attempt to make white boot covers and either paint the flames on them or sew them on (depending on the material I use I suppose...probably just paint them on to pleathery material since I already have red paint left over.) Sorry I can't offer much help, I'm not very experience at cosplay either and have been asking other people for help on this site too. XD

Hmm honestly they look like white Go Go Boots.

Those for example, they are loose at the top as well. You could easily paint flames on them.
