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.

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

The cords are on the Attack on Titan boots, its a design detail

Bwaaaaa thank you so much for this! @.@ It looks fantastic!
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 ^^'
Thank you! And it's alright, I'll try it out soon and hopefully it'll all work out c:

: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:(

Is it easy to take these off the boots that you use for cosplay? I have a good pair of boots i want to use, but i dont want to keep the boot covers on them all the time.
