Boots in larger sizes?

So my boyfriend wants to cosplay a Sailor Moon version of a character from his friend's webcomic. (I can't find a picture of the character in the Sailor Moon outfit at the moment, however the outfit is literally no different from canon Sailor Moon besides the hair, so this picture works.)

He is a size 13 in men's shoes. He already has a very hard time finding men's shoes in his size, and I know he'll be even larger in women's shoes. So that'll make things even trickier when looking for women's boots. I've tried looking on online shoe shops for transwomen, drag queens, and even cis women with large feet. So far, I haven't found anything remotely similar to Sailor Moon's boots.

Where's a good place for cosplayers with larger feet to turn for tall boots?

You may have already tried this, but I did a quick search for "size 16 womens shoes" (a rough guess) and found some good options. At that size it looks like most boots come in white or black--you'll likely need to invest in some paint.

Alternately, you can save a fair bit of money by getting him pumps with the right heel and using stretch vinyl to make boot covers. There are some excellent Sailor Scout boot covers demonstrated specifically in that tutorial.

Question Calves too big to wear ladies boots.

Hi.

I wear a size 9 - 9.5 men's & can usually wear a ladies10 no problem, when it comes to shoes. I could've had a wicked deal on a pair of block heel, zippered black knee boots -but I could not get them zipped more than half way. They fit great otherwise & going up a size didn't help.

Do they make boots for ladies with larger calves?
Is there a way to stretch boots?
A way to slim calves?


Thanks.
