Bleach straw sandals help
Could anyone suggest the best place to buy a pair of straw sandals like they where on Bleach?
I know there are a few places on E-bay that sell them but I was wondering if someone who may have already bought and wore the sandals could help me out?

Thank you for the help, I will certainly check out the site once you have posted a link

They're not that hard to make actually ^_^ I'll see if I can find a tutorial. If I remember correctly, you just need a really long piece of the wicker-like stuff (which I found in a fabric shop).

And I know you'll be able to do it easily LOL

Thanks any tutorials you could past on about making the sandals would be great as it would be cool if I could at least try to make them myself. Although I think you may have more faith in my skills then I have lol but I am certainly willing to give sandal making ago

I'll try and find it! If all else fails...there are some good ones on ebay I've seen people wearing. My first pair came from qqcosplay but I remade them for my second Kenpachi costume. They feel like walking on gravel for someone of my weight LOL

Thanks guys for the help. I will take a look at the tutorial and if all else fails I can buy a pair from the shop recommended. In fact I might do both as I hope to be cosplaying Matsumoto a few times next year
