I think they look OK. But to be sure, contact your GMO what he says. He is the one to approve your costume.
What I don't get: When we were looking for the boots they went really cheap on ebay. Like 30-50$. You'll have to have patience to find a regular auction in your size. But as the costume in general takes long time to build, why not?
Yeah, how did they go up in price so much!? Now I find them for $180, minimum. Much more common to find them around $250. It's crazy.
Are these "Buy now" offers or regular auctions?
And what is your search term?
Buy now. I looked up "Chelsea Boot" and it was listed as "Bass Leather Chelsea Gore Ankle Boot"
They were about $25, so if I can make them work that's a steal!
Shoes are surprisingly malleable. I know from a high heel obsession I'm thinking I'll fill in those chunky soles with something durable, then cut the proper indent style in myself. Shouldn't look bad if I'm careful.
I was asking for the Prada boots. Because those Buy now auctions for over 200$ existed then too.
We searched for used ones and auctions.
The only search term was Prada boots/ankleboots/bootee
All we needed then was patience...and some luck
Oh, duh. Sorry
I've been perusing the used section since April. Maybe more patience, you're right. Until one appears I'll see what I can do with these guys.
Anything else you can suggest? The soles...paint of course...make sure the ankle/toe guards will fit properly...
We havn't started our boots yet, so I can't give you any tipps on that.
But there are lots of threads in the forum.
