Good tutorial. Got any for Saiyan boots by any chance?

Goku boots: http://www.strangelandcostumes.com/tips-boot.html

If you mean the boots that go with Saiyan armour though, which i think you do, I couldn't find a specific tutorial but if it were me i would:

1. Get some boots of the correct shape

2. Lever off the edges of the boots' soles

3. Make boot covers out of white lycra with a litle overhang at the bottom which you can later tuck between the sole and the bottom of the boot. (If you'd rather go for a white leatherette then if it's heavy duty enough the boots can be built from base shoes of the appropriate shape as opposed to boots. But that's a matter of preference. In this case I prefer the idea of the matt look of lycra and the smooth finish of a stretch fabric.

3. Yellow (or gold if you prefer) lycra to for the toe embellishements. Either one piece of lycra and shade in the detail or I'd be tempted to try one base piece of lycra and then three rectangles attached over the top which the edges folded under for a ridged effect.

4. Tuck all the edges in and glue the sole in place.

At least that's how i'd go about it...

Ebay if you want to purchase. I've seen Trunks and Vegeta (white saiyan boots)

I'm planning on making Videl's and mystic Gohan's shortly :3

eBay boots are very, very bad. The Vegeta/Vegito ones on there are the only decent pair.

From the looks of it, your describing Vegeta's boots to me. I'm was more talking about the typical Saiyan boots that Raditz, Nappa and Turles wear. But thanks for the helps anyways =3

Those are really good boot tutorials, thanks for sharing.

In that case, I'd apply the same principle but different colours of lycra and cotton piping covered in lycra for the raised detailing on the sides and around the top
