Leather Boot Tutorial

I hope it's okay to just post a link, I didn't want to spam the thread with pictures.

I've come up with a simple way to make a basic leather boot and written it up in tutorial form over at my dA.

http://harmoniccosplay.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4ht4ua

It covers how to make a boot that laces tightly to the leg, but I'm sure there are ways it can be modified for making a boot that stands on it's own. This is for those times when a boot cover just isn't enough!

This was used to make boots for Sokka and Zuko. I... haven't actually been able to pin Sokka down to get pictures of his, but Zuko's were used and pictured in the tutorial.

This is really nice tutorial! You're very clear and concise. It's nice to have a boot making tutorial for once instead of a boot cover tut

Thank you. It was my first, so I'm glad it's been pretty clear to understand. And I have nothing against boot covers... I just prefer boots. ^_^

Yeeeeesss.... Thank you so much! I may have the courage to redo my Link boots now (-is tired and just realized the irony of this statement-), and try out some different styles too.

You're welcome! Let me know how they turn out, and if you manage different styles with it. I'm really curious to see what other people can do with this. ^_^

This tutorial was simply great *0* I didn't have problems understanding it, you've been quite concise and clear and satisfactory all at once ^^ and I have to admit that it's a nice change of pace from all the boots covers arounds (I so don't like them xP).
Thank you for sharing this with us

YAY! I can now sigh of relief because of this. My FFX-2 Yuna cosplays are now going to be a little less stressful due to the lack of no tutorials and searches of her boots. Thanks so much my friend

authentic boots.

I have a question. I haven't really done cosplay in several years. I have been looking into building a jedi outfit. I don't really like the term costume. The type of person I am, I want to find items as close to real world (in universe real) materials as possible. To that end, I have been unable to find leather boots. I see all of these posts like the one here and videos on youtube that show the polyurethane (plastic) boots. If I do this, it must be right. It doesn't have to look exactly like the movie, as I am not trying to go as any known jedi, just a generic jedi. As varying as the known jedi's costumes are, it is highly unlikely that they all shop at the same shoe store on Corescant. Therefore, if i can find a boot that looks like the movie, but is made of high quality materials, I will go that way. If not, I think I may go with a leather knee length riding boot. Do you guys have any suggestions?
