Boot Cover Tutorial by mihoyonagi Boot Cover Tutorial by mihoyonagi
PLEASE NOTE: If you feature this tutorial anywhere else, I request that credit is given to me, be it just a mention of my name or a link back here, and that you might have the courtesy to tell me where it is- I like to see where my stuff ends up =)

I keep getting bugged about how I made the shoes for my Shiki Misaki costume. I figured that I would make a tutorial to help anyone aspiring to make their own boot cover.

Now, this particular tutorial was designed after trial and error. Nothing I do is completely professional, and most of it is done for fun (and it seems I like to test the limits of my patience and sanity on a regular basis).

If you have any questions or comments, you're more than welcome to e-mail me at mihoyonagi@yahoo.com. Or, if you prefer, message me here on DA and I can respond back within a day or two, so long as I'm not too swamped with work.

SPACIAL NOTE: the boots that I used in this tutorial did NOT HAVE ZIPPERS and were merely meant to slip on.

...And I've seen (firelilycosplay.deviantart.com… initially it seemed to work but then the going over the toe part was all loose and kept moving and didn't work.

What do you do if you don't want the hurt the boots? I'm having trouble figuring out how to make boot covers that are temporary - the only boots I have are Uggs, and I'm worried hot glue would hurt them.

These boot covers are not meant to come off. I would suggest going to a discount shoe outlet or finding some online and using those when making boot covers. Using hot glue on Ugg boots would ruin them in that the glue would not come off of them, or would seriously damage them if you tried to remove it. Again, I highly suggest using cheaper shoes you don't mind losing to cosplay.

Wow this is really good. But do you think that if some one was cosplay Vergil (form devil my cry 3) could do this as well for his boots?

Oh yeah, I've used this method with fake-leather, and upholstery leather before. It is thicker and harder to work with, however, so it might end up being somewhat time consuming. But if you were to ask me honestly? Based off how his boots look, I think it might be easier if you were to buy knee-high leather boots like that and just make and attach the belts at the top, and do the detailing at the top yourself as well.

Hello! I need to make boot covers but I'd rather make them temporary. I've come up with a few ways, but I was wondering if you had any tips for that? Thanks!

None off the top of my head, sorry. I'd suggested browsing around here on DA - I'm sure there's a tutorial out there for what you're looking for.
