Sorry if I'm rezzing this thread, but this weekend I just bought fabric for an Amano Celes costume and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to do the elaborate work on her boots? Here's a picture of the boots I want to do, though I'm not doing that outfit.

I think I will give FF6 Cid a shot. Just gotta find some poofy karate pants and a decent raincoat to hack.

Cool! If you're going as Cid from VI, you should bring a fishing pole and some fake fish with you too.

ooh that would be soo funny!!

ironekilz, i cant see the boots too well, but there should be some white high-heeled boots around in a couple of stores. check any thrift stores or payless, etc! if all else fails, you can always take a pair of high-heels and make bootcovers

Well, I already have the boots, so that's taken care of. I bought these on Zappos.

http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/3356948/c/15.html

They looked very Amano-esque to me and I didn't want a really high heel since I've done that before and it wasn't very pleasant! I'm just having trouble trying to figure out how to do the work on the heel. I was contemplating modeling the design out of sculpy, but I think it would either be really heavy and would have a tendency to fall off, or else I'd have to make it really thin, which would cause it to break. Any suggestions for another medium to make it out of? Foam? Puff paint?

My Cid ideas:

Yellow coat: Buy a cheap raincoat to paint.
Pants: Gotta find some poofy and baggy-ish white pants, likely going to check out some kung-fu shops in NYC next time I travel up there.

Then likely paint the designs on with fabric paint.

ooh great boots ironekilz! they look almost just like celes'! foam is a great idea, just make sure you attach it right lol. i used a piece of foam for my terra bootcovers so they wouldnt slouch but once i got to the convention they came off X_X. stupid tacky glue...

Ahh, be VERY careful when working with foam. I used it for the trim on my Celes boots, and when I unzipped them at the con it ripped a bit on the edge. Nothing that can't be fixed, but that kind of material is more fragile than it seems. You might want to coat the trim with resin for reinforcement if you don't want to risk the possibility of tearing.

Thanks for the advice everyone! If only I can make boots as beautiful as yours, Ambrosia.

o0marikit0o: Great costume! I've never seen anyone do Final Fantasy Tactics, let alone the ninja girl from it. Kudos for thinking outside the box.
