Here’s what the boot looked like zipped and laced up! At this point, If I wanted to reuse the base boots, I could have added elastic around the bottom of the cover. But I wanted something a little more durable, so I used contact cement on both the cover and the base boot to secure the cover in place. Unlike other glues, with contact cement you put it on both surfaces and then wait for it to dry. Then, all you have to do is push the pieces together and boom! Adhered!
Recently, I wrapped up work on my boots for a cosplay (Lillet from Grim Grimoire) and I got a few questions about how I made them, after posting photos of the first of the pair. So, while making the second, I took pictures and notes along the way. Click the arrows to navigate through the tutorial!
Materials: To make the boots, I cut my pattern out in both home decor vinyl and a durable cotton. I’m not going to go into how I made my pattern, as there are plenty of great tutorials on how to wrap/tape your calf and foot and make them.
