So upcoming Kumoricon anime convention over labor day weekend, my friend and I plan to cosplay from Kantai Collection.
My friend is much more Asian than I am and thus can attempt to crossplay as Shimakaze.
I'm only half Asian and appear a little less actually. That said, I still plan to attempt crossplaying as Kongou;
The way I see it, her outfit isn't revealing or skin tight and thus it may be a lot more forgiving for me to attempt.
Getting the costume and wig is not issue really. Using some make up to reduce my male facial features a bit comes down to getting a little practice.
The part I want help with is her shoes.
They appear to be over the knee boots basically and the tall part of it can be replicated a bit by using over the knee socks with some edits. But what should I use for the actual shoe part?
Given the choice, I refuse to use a tacky shoe cover.
But being a guy, I'm unfamiliar with most shoes and such.
Are there any inexpensive shoes I could get that could be used for this? Preferably something not too uncomfortable. lol
PS: Do /you/ guys think her outfit is fairly manage-able for a male?
