As the title might suggest, we are a little WoW nuts

we had decided months ago to do warcraft costumes..I was planning on dressing up as my Draenai shaman, and my bf..well he wasn't sure

and he wasn't sure all the way up to a month before halloween >__<

so the story goes, I had already had the feet planned out long ago, and said lets just do a warlock/succy..since i can use the same shoes anyway. Just about everything was made by me, in 2 weeks, on a tight budget. i'm a little down about not being completely 100% game accurate, but that's how it goes when you wait until 2 weeks before halloween and you have a project due the same night you are going to go out!

so pictures..

and...since i built the boots, here are a few in progress shots

step 1. purchase cheap boots and saw off the heels. bonus points for a strong hard plastic arch support. cut and sand hooves in the school woodshop, be sure to avoid explaining what you're doing to anyone or you'll never get away from everyone who wants to talk about WoW!

step 2
glue the hooves on to the shoe with plenty (and i mean plenty) of epoxy 2 part glue. then shove in some more for good measure. make sure you do this OUTSIDE. clamp (somehow) and then when dry, give several coats of fibreglass strand filled bondo all around the joins, down the hooves, and up the arch for extra support and reinforcement

step 3
using blue foam, hack and chop away until you have some nice shapes, glue them onto the shoes and wrap with poly batting, secure.

cover with fabric of choice, and slip on some legwarmers - preferably made from the same fabric, but i ran a little short and it was 1 day before i needed the costumes, so I made do with what i had

in retrospect, i would have used boots that were tighter to my leg, but i think they worked out alright anyway!

thanks for looking

They laugh at me because I'm different.
I pity them because they're all the same.

oh thanks

well the concept i was kind of banking on is that if i got boots with a hard plastic arch support and then reinforced it with fibreglass, i would be able to put at least a little bit of weight onto my whole foot and not just the ball of my foot, kind of like how i walk in heels (badly)

it did work, thankfully...but i purchased some of those little gel foot pads to put in them and i forgot them the night we went out, so my feet did really hurt..but no more than when i have stupidly worn high heels out to dance in  Roll Eyes

Really amazing!  You guys looked great, and I am amazed you could walk, but hey, lots of us do stupid things to our feet in the name of beauty - and that was a great costume!

i really love how you actually created these hooves. that idea totally seems like something i would think of, but then decide its impossible [the walking IN them-part].
