    Mar 20, 2013, 9:25 PM - Boba needs a new pair of boots. (Help with boot tutorial) #1

    Hello,
    It has been many years since I have been on this forum. I made my Fett boots based off a tuturial that I found on this site. I can not find it anymore and was wandering if it still exists? I do NOT want to buy boots, I enjoy making my own pieces. I think the boots were the last bits that I made and as such were kind of rushed. They are murder to put on and I like the look of the piping but the rest...

    Sorry my bad, after looking through all my diagrams and blueprints I found the patterns for the boots. They were off a site that doesnt exist anymore, "Build your own Boba Fett"

    Thanks Dan

    Hi Yavin! Man of War here on the boards has a new line of boots that I believe are as accurate as we've ever seen! Christian is a great guy and I would definitely recommend doing business with him.

    Also, Spideyfett here on the boards has a thread that really set the modern precedent on how to paint boots, I used it and came up with fantastic results as as a first timer.

    Between these two members help, and slime Toe Spikes from Mojo Fett you're sure to have the baddest boots in your garrison!

    Hope this helps,

    Dakota

    Also I did see that you didn't want to buy. This was just my recommendation if you wanted something a little more sturdy

    Thank you, my main problem with them is they are incredibly hard to get on. They are a canvas hightop with a fabric over top of them. I didnt leave an opening and the fabric doesn't stretch. As for buying boots, I don't think I've ever paid over a $100 for shoes I wear everyday, so I cant see spending that much for a costume shoes.

    the black ares on either side of the boots should be elastic, that should help with getting them on/off easier
