As some one who does a few professional Boots mods for Pirates, Santa and Jedi I'll tell you thatís not a bad job for one of your first ones. It looks better then a boot wrap and you have worked out several solutions to the method. One thing Iíll add is that if you had used thicker pleather or real leather you may have been able to make the toe/vamp area in one piece and not have the little tucks on sides of each toe. Wet leather has a lot of mold ability, even dry leather if worked by hand can be formed. And pleather and vinyl can be worked in the same way with carefull use of a hairdryer.

I love this. Question, though. Where do you get liquid plastic resin? Is it expensive?

Okay I might have read over someone already asking this, but i was wondering, when you use the term 'sew', did you do it by hand? I'm assuming that's the only possible way, but I mean mind isn't comprehending how to sew something like that. I'm sorry! I'm really do you go about your sewing technique for this?

The shoes that I want to make into boots have laces on them. Do you think it would be safe to just remove those (and possibly the tongue on the shoes)? I tried using temporary covers that I employed a similar method + velcro and gorilla glue and it kept coming off when I was wearing them.

I want some longer lasting boots. Despite the flimsy holding, the ones that I made with yours and Sarcasm-hime's help did look pretty sweet, even if worn out of cosplay. Hoping to be able to make them more permanent. Hehe.

I've been looking for a good boot (cover) tutorial for a while! This will be a big help when I need to make a pair of crazy shoes.
I just want to know 2 things, what did you use for tacks? and how did you attach the covers to the sole of the shoe? I didn't quite understand... did you sew them down somehow or tack them down?

I'm trying to make Arc's shoes from FFIII, the DS version.
I hate those days when I wake up with only one hand.

Thank you for this! (seriously)

I found it through the tutorials list and I will definitely be referring to it when I work on my own boots this summer!

Thank you!
