I decided that by the time I went through the trouble of finding and dyeing some boots, it would just be easier (and cheaper) to find some on eBay that looked close and that I wouldn't need to fool with too much.
These are what I just bought, and considering I'll only walk in them for 1 mile, I can live with their "inaccuracies".
At least they're gray, have dark gray/black side gores, and look COMFY!!! I can always do something to the yellow bits...
Thanks for the input, though!
Now none of you had better laugh at me in the parade! At least I'll be easy to spot now!!!
Hey guys! I've got a questions that hopefully someone can help me with. I'm going to DragonCon whis year (like many of you), and I've decided to make a pair of "stunt" boots to wear in the DC parade. I'm *NOT* wearing my MC boots in the parade and risking damaging them!
I've found a base boot that it much the same slip-on style with side gores. The sole is different than the MCs (but the general public won't know). These boots are a light brown/orangey leather. What can I use to dye them the correct base color, then dye the stripes onto them with?
