Oh you booty!
Boot covers are finito!
The pic shows the boots I started out with (also using these for Grell cosplay!) and a covered boot.
This time around the boot covers zip up the side as well as being held on by elastic underneath the boot.
They're slightly 'wavy' around the zips, because the zipper foot for the sewing machine stretched the vinyl as I sewed it. For the rest of the boot covers I used a rolling foot as it's made of plastic and has a little wheel that just feeds the fabric through (and the fabric doesn't stick to it). This is obviously rather annoying!
The buckles are made from cardboard (cat food boxes lol) and covered with foil. No expense spared there obviously ^_~
Since the zips ended up being a little too short (despite measuring before buying) I sewed on a hook and eye to the top of each boot cover.
And with that, the construction of this cosplay is completed! Roll on Amecon!
