Discussion on Scratchbuilt boots! within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; here are some pics of my boots...bought them from kohl's,
Them boots are made for walking..........looks good
Those look pretty darn good to me. I made mine as well. I have had trouble getting the stripes which I made out of bootlaces to stay glued on to the leather. How did you fare with yours? Any ideas would be great.
thanks guys!! i will eventually do the caboots, but too poor at the moment.... these will work on a few outings...hope the stripes stay put though...
those are looking pretty good except for the lift in the heel. "correct" boba boots are flat soled. if you're shooting for accuracy that's something i'd take care of. also the elastic "U" section at the ankles dips a little further down. but that's a detail that only we here at tdh would notice.
are they leather and suede? they look sturdy, and honestly a bit more comfortable than my caboots.
I think you have done an excellent job on your scratch boots. They're not 100% accurate, but neither are caboots so you're doing good. Keep it up, looking forward to your updates.
I believe there was a tutorial to replace the sole of boots with heels with a flat sole from a pair of flip-flops... they look nice now but they would look so much better with the flat sole.
Keep in mind that it's mostly only the 501st and the TDH members that will see those details...
Or if you don't want to go the whole removing the sole route you could just get a pair of flipflops and cut a piece and fill in the gap/space between the heel ball of the foot. Use goop glue. It very strong.
That would be my thread see below
thanks for all the input guys!! i dont know about filling in the heel and soul....i like em like they are....will eventually do the caboots, but like i said, these 'll work for awhile...they were fun to do!! these boots are all leather, but the ankle piece is elastic...i know that these are not screen accurate, but it was the best i could do with the money i had!!
Probably didn't see my thread there, but glad someone else had the same thought I did! Now if I could just muster the courage to paint mine up...
hey, xero, go to www.tk409 and follow his tutorial on painting the boots...very helpful!!
It's a bit glossy, maybe you should spray it with a matte coat to tone that down a bit Good job though!
i see what you mean, gamer...i will weather the black piece in the middle some, forgot to do that.... thanks everyone for the input!!
Travolta would be proud of those dude
just kidding man, they look good...heels and all
hey bounty, i am "stayin' alive" in these boots, man!! john would be impressed, so are "da ladies"
Nicely done sir! Very informative
