I love this. Question, though. Where do you get liquid plastic resin? Is it expensive?

#21 PockyFairy on 13 years ago

Okay I might have read over someone already asking this, but i was wondering, when you use the term 'sew', did you do it by hand? I'm assuming that's the only possible way, but I mean mind isn't comprehending how to sew something like that. I'm sorry! I'm really do you go about your sewing technique for this?

#22 kabuki_KILLER on 13 years ago

The shoes that I want to make into boots have laces on them. Do you think it would be safe to just remove those (and possibly the tongue on the shoes)? I tried using temporary covers that I employed a similar method + velcro and gorilla glue and it kept coming off when I was wearing them.

I want some longer lasting boots. Despite the flimsy holding, the ones that I made with yours and Sarcasm-hime's help did look pretty sweet, even if worn out of cosplay. Hoping to be able to make them more permanent. Hehe.

I know this is kinda an old thread but do you think this could be applied to rollerblades? I am going for a look like this [url][/url]

Another thread revival XD

What is the best place to buy shoe tacks/where can I find them?

#25 ShiNo_Usagi on 12 years ago

I've been looking for a good boot (cover) tutorial for a while! This will be a big help when I need to make a pair of crazy shoes.
I just want to know 2 things, what did you use for tacks? and how did you attach the covers to the sole of the shoe? I didn't quite understand... did you sew them down somehow or tack them down?

#26 WARPAINTandUnicorns on 12 years ago

I’ve never used shoe tacks before but what I use is Shoe GOO, it’s a shoe glue that work really well. There are other brands out there and the all work the some.

We talk about this here a bit as well

#28 PsychoRooster on 12 years ago

I'm trying to make Arc's shoes from FFIII, the DS version.
