Sora's Shoes Tutorial by makeshiftwings30 Sora's Shoes Tutorial by makeshiftwings30
WARNING: BIGGEST FILE EVAR.

Here's the tutorial I did for my shoes. Enjoy. If you have any questions, just ask.

Forgot to add the zipper link!
[link]
Buy the one without the pully thing.
Edit:
I don't remember this site having different lengths when I bought mine. I measured my shoe, though, and I used around 14" of the zipper. I have very small feet, though, (I can't remember if I bought a size 5 or 6 in the Converse), so the length you need to buy all depends on your shoe size. I would get ATLEAST 18" to be safe, but again, it all depends on your shoe size.

what do you mean? use normal shoes as the base? you should use a shoe with a high top because it's easier to build a base on, but i'm sure you could use a normal shoe and still achieve the height somehow.

oh, i don't see why not.. although they are somewhat awkward to walk in, and depending on how sturdy/well you make them, they may have a lot of wear and tear after a while.

Was it hard to walk in them? Like, how difficult was it to walk around? lol I've been looking around for a tutorial & so far this one was the best one I've found that doesn't involve searching for clown shoes..

not TOO bad. it is a little awkward because they're so large in the front and upholstery foam doesn't bend a lot.. but it's definitely manageable.

thanks for the tutorial it looks really awesome. I do have a question. What kind of fabric did you use?
Reply
:iconmakeshiftwings30:
makeshiftwings30 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I think I just used the same suiting fabric I used for the rest of my cosplay. I'd suggest using a twill or a non-stretch suiting fabric.

Hi, me again, I was wondering if you knew maybe the exact dimensions of the amount of upholstery foam I need? I'm heading to JoAnnes today :meow:
Reply
:iconmakeshiftwings30:
makeshiftwings30 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The foam I used was 3" thick. The length you need really depends on your shoe size, but I'd get atleast a foot and a half.
