Help with Goddess Madoka costume

Hello everyone!
So, finally i decided to make Goddess Madoka/Kami Madoka costume. Fortunately all my problems are about shoes for now. At first i just wanted to buy white shoes ans pink stokings, but my friend told me that i'd better make simple shoes cover. Well, i found thousand tutorials , however none of them mentioned how to make scallops or smth like that. So my question is about making Madoka's shoes! Which fabric to choose, maybe some tips. Thanks for any help!

They are stockings, not shoe covers. These stockings have been addressed in these forums before. Basically they defy gravity so making them exactly as they are seen on the character is difficult at best.

option 1: paint full panty hose
option 2: sew 2 pair of hose/ tights together, creating the scalloped edge & magical thigh high properties.
option 3: use pink thigh highs and ignore the fact that the characters' are angled. add lace or stitching to create scallops at the top.
option 4: make angled thigh highs, use tons of body tape and be frustrated all day when they don't stay put.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
My Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/penlowe I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.
