Barefoot alternatives
I'm planning on cosplaying as a character who walks around barefoot. While that doesn't really bother me, I suspect most con venues wouldn't be too happy about people walking around in bare feet!

I was considering getting some ballet slippers or fleshy-coloured tights/pop socks, but I'm not sure how this would look with the rest of the costume, although at least with ballet slippers, I can remove them for photographs.

Does this sound like the best option? Or should I just say "screw it" and risk going barefoot?

You could wear flesh coloured tights as I know they won't show up at all =3... though the ballet shoes suggestion is a good idea as it's easy just to slip them off =D

But quite a few cosplayers walk around bare-footed at events anyways... At expos I know they don't mind as I've done it before and I know there are loooads of L cosplayers that walk around bare-footed xD If you don't mind then go for it! ^_^

perhaps sandals with clear straps? they could also be easily removed and no give you the same danger of stepping on stuff

I'm planning on cosplaying as L for Amecon this year and I was going to just wear some sandels just incase they don't want me walking around in bare foot. Then if someone wants my picture or I'm at the death note Photoshoot I can just slip them in my bag ^--^

If you want to spend a bit of money, have the appearance of barefeet but actually still be wearing shoes, check these out - topless flipflops! I want to get some just out of sheer curiosity.

Other than that I'd just go with other people's suggestions of taking shoes that are easy to slip on and off for photos.

I'd advise against completely barefoot methods as I'm guessing places like hotels and such wont want you walking around barefoot - for places like a bar area they definately wont, its against health and safety regs. (Well, they may be lax, but just be prepared if they ask you to put your shoes on!)

One thing - dont wear pop-socks/tights if you know you'll be walking on tiles/lino flooring! Recipe for disaster

pop socks will leave sock marks on your legs too! and no one wants that in their pictures! slip on ballet pumps are the best option as you can take them off really quickly for photos

well if you only have a budget of a quid you can always buy some insoles trim them to the bottom of you feet and doubleside tape them to the sole of your foot only annoying thing is the toe section is likely to bend if you dont tape the ball of your foot really well asides from that its really comfortable

Thanks guys! I've actually managed to find some reasonably-priced leather ballet shoes so I'll be going with those. This costume will hopefully be ready for Minami so I'll show it off there!
