Exclamation Cosplay Headphones and Shoe alteration

(I posted this in cosplay construction but wasn't getting much response. Sorry if you've seen this before)
Reference: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

I have a few questions for the cosplay I plan to make. The character is Rana and she is the newest Vocaloid.
I think I've got the costume down, but the headphones/headpiece and the shoes scare me a little, because I'm more of a seamstress than a prop-builder.
For the shoes, I plan to use this as a base shoe. (Yes, I know it's men's, but it'll work for someone with big feet like me, I think. I also wanted a flat shoe instead of a heel because conventions and heels don't mix for me.)
Most of it seems simple enough: Stick some bows on the back and paint a rainbow stripe down the center. For the white sticking-up part, I plan to attach the fabric to some socks. The only part I'm not sure about is the black ring (Not sure what it's called) I want something that's not too heavy and won't chip if I knock it against something.
Okay, now the heaphones/thing. I basically know what I want to do. I'm just not sure of the materials, because I haven't done something like this before. For the loops, I was thinking about painting some aquarium tubing. For the two pieces on top, I actually got the idea to use Jell-O cups (The clear plastic ones like this https://www.theeasymarket.com/image/...30-500x500.jpg ) because they're about the same shape and I can paint them and cut the edges off. I planned to attach them to a sturdy headband (a plastic one, not an elastic one) As shown in the pictures, the loopy-tube parts attach to a thing(?) in the back, and that's where I'm clueless. For the pieces on the ends of her ponytails, I'm actually thinking about Yoplait yogurt containers like these: http://www.theimpulsivebuy.com/images/newsyoplait.jpg . Idk what it is with me and food containers. I'm thrifty. The entire headphone setup has to fit under a hood, as shown.
I guess my questions are
Will my existing ideas work?
How do I do the rings on the shoes and the back of the headphones?
Advice on types of paint for the shoes and headphones is also appreciated.
Sorry this was so lengthy. I ramble. More reference can be found here, but make sure to turn the volume down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L49_6paWIb0
