Okay so like.. I'm getting really irritated by this.
The buckles on Maka's boots are backwards. As in, they don't actually function. So.. I'm thinking I'm just going to make fake buckles and have velcro closing them instead. I dunno, like, when this sort of thing happens, where the artist doesn't make something in a possible way, do you go for functionality and realism or looking exactly like the character? Would people notice if you used real buckles but had them facing the appropriate direction (meaning not like in the pictures)?

Seriously, this has been bugging me for ages. Dx
