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

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!

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.
Valdrein Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Student Artisan Crafter
The cords are on the Attack on Titan boots, its a design detail
