Coloring Lycra Boots
I'm going as doctor mrs the monarch for Halloween. (http://www.darqbyte.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/DrMrsTheMonarch-300x259.jpg)

I've purchased a pair of thigh-high lycra stretch boots. (like these in white:http://exotic-high-heels.amazonwebstore.com/609SKI-6-Pointed-Stiletto-Stretch-Lycra/M/B0012GVEBA.htm?traffic_src=froogle&utm_medium=organic&utm_source=froogle)

My plan was to dye the boots and the fabric to make the gloves and trim with the same dye. However there were two things I didn't consider:
1.) They are made from Lycra which I've heard is difficult/impossivle to dye.
2.) The heel of the boot is some sort of plastic, or patent thing. There's no tag, so I'm not positive what I'm working with.

SO with all the is mind, does anyone have suggestions of how to color everyting yellow? Is there any type of spray paint I can use that won't crack? Am I doomed to make boot coverings?

Thank you so much!
