Boot cover help?

I'm going to make a pair of boot covers, but I was wondering if using peep toe shoes instead of closed toe would work just as well? The shoes I got to make my boots are really uncomfortable and I have some peep toes lying around that would work perfectly! Thanks for your input!

Are you making boots from the shoes (gluing them in place?) or actually wearing covers that will not permanently adhere to the shoes?

If you are making boots, you probably need a full toe for adhering, if not, wear whatever is comfy underneath the covers.

Well, I'm making a full boot but the shoes are pretty high so they have a platform that would make gluing easy.

What character are you working on?
There are a variety of ways to do just about anything.

Somewhere around here, there's a little tutorial on putting tights on over a pair of heels, to make tall skintight "boots" that aren't really boots. That should work fine on your peep-toes if that's the kind of boot you need.
