pretty sure there is a leather paint out there somewhere
or make boot covers?

When I was colouring leather belts for one of my costumes I used this:


I found that it worked extremely well and was very flexible with the leather. You will need at least three to four coats of it, but you can use a hairdryer to help with the drying process.

Dylon do a shoe dye which worked on my Madam Red boots. It's more of a paint, so it's a real pain to do, but it worked really well. Alternatively, for my Stark Expo girl boots I'm using spray paint, which also seems to work ok, although you need to be sure to prime the boots and lacquer them afterwards.


I have no idea what you're talking about, but it's evident that your fantasies are completely incoherent.

However, sadly that won't work over black shoes. Leather is like wigs, you can only really make it darker. You can either (as sonnet suggested) make boot covers or, you can use spray paint primer in a grey or white, then spray paint then spray paint sealant. It's a very long process and can cost a fair whack though. Similarly, airbrushing works if you prime and seal the shoes/boots.

What size are your feet btw, I am a google ninja and I've been looking for larger shoes for a friend who has above average sized feet for a lady so I might be able to find you something?

Make some shoe covers, there's several tutorials around, do a google search, but basically you make a long sock out of stretchy Lycra material you wear over the shoe with a little hole for the shoe's heel to poke out of.

To get the shape just tightly wrap a piece of the fabric around your leg with the shoe on, then pin it together, then take it off and the pins will show you where to sew. The tutorials explain it better than I do. You could get the Wonder Woman look by making them out of red fabric and sewing on a white stripe afterwards perhaps.

You might have problems with the covers falling down a bit and looking wrinkly after a bit, so you might need to stiffen then or sew them into thick tights ( I had to do this for my Ms Marvel costume)

Oh and practice walking in the heels, if you are not used to them it will come as a bit of a shock.
