    Sep 27, 2011, 9:42 AM - Boots help. #1

    Hi guys, I have SO nearly finished my Fett, and I am wondering about the boots. My plan is to buy some black leather boots and paint/weather them accordingly. Has everyone on here spent $150 on MOW or CA boots? Surely some of you have cut corners with them :P I am hoping to find some leather boots that are the right shape and size which will save me money as I have already spent about 1100 on it so far ($1,700)!! With just the Codpiece, butt piece, wookie scalps, boots, blaster strap and some more paint to go!

    So who out there has MADE fett boots? Pictures?

    cheers.

    If your going for accuracy leather boots are not the way to go. The originals were made of canvas.
    I your able to afford it I would go for the MOW's. Awesome boot.

    Yeah, I can't really afford 130 for the boots, plus all the weathering materials when I don't really know how to do it :P So my plan was to get leather boots and sand them so they were rough and looked more believable than the shiny leather boots. What'ya reckon?

    Hey! Check out TK409.com. He had another way of doing some cheaper boots. I have the MOW boots and they are awsome!

    I used TK409s tutorial when I made the boots for my sons boba costume and I think they turned out pretty good...I know they are only kids boots for a kids costume but the same intent is there for adults as well.

    I lucked out and had a buddy selling some size 10 MOW boots a couple months ago.

    I ended up getting them for 100 shipped. Plus they fit really well, be aware though I usually wear a size 9-9.5 US and the size 10 MOW are a little snug.

    I got MoW boots as well & couldn't picture myself wearing any other pair.. If I had to wear leather boots for Boba I don't think I would be able to sleep at night.
