Attack on Titan - Boot Cover Tutorial by Valdrein Attack on Titan - Boot Cover Tutorial by Valdrein
Series: Attack on Titan
----

I recently made my Attack on Titan boots for my Hanji cosplay for Aki Con,
and I had a few people ask me how I made them,
so here is a little tutorial!

This is my first time making one,
and it took 3 hours to put together X'D
My gawd!
So much more respect for people that make these OTL

---
I am FAR FROM AN EXPERT
and this is just one of many ways you can make these boots.
But hopefully it will be of some help to people ^^
---

S/N: If there is something I've made that you would like me to do a tutorial on let me know.
I can't do a full costume tutorial because it would be to hard and long to explain,
but if there is a part of a costume or sewing/building technique I will try my best!
---------------------------------

EDIT
Because I've been getting some repeating questions,
I'll post a mini FAQ..

How much fabric did you use?
I bought 1m and had almost half of it left over,
but this depends on the width of your fabric, so picture 4 boots laying down ^^'

What does the bottom look like?/Does the heel stick out?
Yes, the heel sticks out and the bottom of the cover. I use heel boots for this reason since it keeps the boot cover from twisting and shifting while you walk.
Also if your a clutz like myself, then the extra traction is awesome!

Can I use flats/bare feet/shorter boots
I used tall boots because...
- they are easy to trace (tracing your leg is a pain in the ass)
- They protect your feet
- They give the boot covers a strong stiff surface to rest ageist
 - and you will not see any shoe lines or pant bunchies

But in the end you can do whatever you want, this is a guide line using methods I have tested and that have worked for me.

wow this is going to really help me with my Fem Eren cosplay. I'm on a budget and I only have one pair of boots that would work but they have fur on them. Now i can make a cover and wear the boots. great tutorial thanks!

This probably sounds like a stupid question but what are the cords for.

Lovely tutorial! I was wondering though, would it work just the same with wedge heel boots or would I need to adjust everything to my needs?

For wedge heels you may need to cover the entire bottom of the boot.
I haven't made a cover for wedge heels before so I'm not sure and I don't want to give you bad information ^^'

:wow: Thank you so much for this tutorial!! I was just thinking about how I would need to make a boot cover because of my calves' size and then I found this!

Uhm, what if I have no boots for base? I mean, my feet are small, my calves are thick, there are no boots that would ever fit my legs:(
