cowboy bebop elektra/electra boots...
hi all!

currently working on my elektra ovirowa cosplay and really want to get her boots spot on!

just done a super quick sketch while watching the fight scene between her and spike in 'knocking on heavens door'. i think i've roughly got it right but you hardly see them.

they are grey, mid calf, they look lace up but they do have a strap across the front like a biker boot.

i need a size 7...perhaps six and a half.

wondered if anyone could help!

THANKYOU! x

I had a quick look through eBay and found a couple of options which I think could work

I quite like these as you could remove the top flap bit and then add that like the bar in the diagram:

I'm drawn to the colour of these for some reason but you would need to take them with you to a fabric shop to try and match fabric for the flap over and that might be a pain - but that could be an option:

But boots similar to the ones you've draw were all the rage two summers back so it's probably worth checking out your local charity shop. Sometime you can get lucky - that or primark They do weird and wonderful things from time to time - and if the boots arn't too expensive you could buy two pairs to make the flaps over.

bluddy hell you're good at this. i've trawled through ebay several times in the past week looking for something suitable. the top pair look like a reeeeally good option.

i was gutted when i looked into this cosplay as i had also noted that a similar style to this had been very fashionable (pretty sure my younger sister had a pair...in grey as well!!!)

thanks so much, you're so helpful...i'm such a novice and your advice is always great and much appreciated

No worries I'm glad these were helpful - eBay is a mixture of luck though Plus I've been looking for brown boots like this for my Lara Cosplay so been looking at loads of boots lately *^_^*
