Non stretch bootcovers

I have found some great tutorials for bootcovers on the internet. I'm working on a Tyene Sand costume

I'm considering using suede or fake leather, but neither of these have much stretch. While I have found tutorials for non-stretch bootcovers, I was wondering how to stop them slipping down. I think if the fabric isn't stiff enough they won't stay up. I don't want baggy boots :P
I'm also wondering how to make pointed toes. From what I can tell, the toes on her boots are pointy/slightly curled, like an Aladdin type of shoe

Line the boot covers with inner facing. Inner facing comes in about ten different 'weights', from tissue paper thin (1) to rigid enough to hurt if you threw a square of it at someone(10). For boot covers I'd look for an 8 or so.

For the toe points, seek out an Elf shoe pattern (lots will be knitted, but I know I've seen sewn versions). In order to keep the point, you will need a sole piece on the boot cover, but it only needs to be about 2-3" long, just enough to tuck under the toe of the shoe you are covering. Don't let this piece extend down under the ball of your foot! It will be slippery.
