Quick and Easy Cosplay Boot Cover Tutorial by Kimba616 Quick and Easy Cosplay Boot Cover Tutorial by Kimba616
PLEASE FULL VIEW, or view it here on tumblr!

I’ve always hated doing shoe and boot covers until my friend introduced me to this method. Turns out it’s not very well known how to do it! So I decided to take some photos while I did my most recent ones and make a tutorial for others to use. This tutorial can be used for socks, shoe covers, spats, custom boots, and anything else you can think of!

I’m only covering how to make the pattern, not how to sew it because I feel like that part is pretty straight forward.

Skill level required: beginner
Time: ~1hr
Materials:
-shoes
-saran wrap
- tape
-pen
-paper scissors
-ruler
-butcher paper
- a body
- a friend!(not required, but VERY helpful!)

I've been doing the whole "wrap your leg in fabric and, lol, good luck getting it straight & fitting properly." method that there are 10+ tutorials for out there, but this is WAY easier in my opinion!

 I needed a pair of black boots with an orange stripe for my cosplay, and I was dreading going out and finding a pair that both fit and was decently priced. @_@ But using this will be a lot less painful. Thank you!

Hey just curious on this... Are these for permanent shoe covers or will the fabric slip over pre-existing shoes? I'm curious because I'm trying to find one where it slips over the shoe.

Awesome. Thank you. Just wanted to be sure because I have a potential base shoe but I don't want to glue the cover to the shoe permanently. :)

You are a genius! But what do you suggest for Rikku (ffx2)? Her normal boots are very loose... Just not as tight? I need to make a few pairs of shoes for cosplay.
