Stretch Boot Cover Tutorial by The-Cosplay-Scion Stretch Boot Cover Tutorial by The-Cosplay-Scion
Woooooo finally another tutorial! This time for boot covers! I've had a lot of people ask me how to make boot covers so I figured this was a good tutorial to write!

I would like to start by saying, I did not come up with this method for making boot covers... I merely use this method. I donít know who came up with it, I just know it wasn't me. I do however find it a super quick and simple way to get clean crisp boot covers with not much difficulty, so I figured I would share it!

All that being said I did write this whole thing out and sketch out all of those wonderful **cough cough** horrible **cough** little drawings ^,~
If you wish to repost this somewhere please ask me first.

I have a lot more tutorials planned for the next little while (including some on makeup and wigs) So hopefully I will be able to get those done soon!

Anyways, if you guys have any questions about the tutorial or anything I mention in it feel free to ask! I am always happy to help out as much as I can!

Also guys I will have a reference picture shortly, I just don't know where the charger is for my camera right now, and my battery is dead dead dead ^^í

Does the fabric on the sole not tear as you walk on it?

I have never had any of mine tear, or even really show that much wear (though they will get really dirty). But that is a possibility if you walk on anything sharp or really rough.

Some times if I am using really slippery fabric I will use the Dr Scholl's slip resistant pads on the bottoms , so you could certainly use those to enforce the boot covers too.

This e of the better tutorials for bootcovers I've seen. ^_^ (Even your pictures are great!) When I finish my cosplay I will certainly show you a picture. (Honestly I hope I won't forget... XD I'm going to watch you too if you don't mind. ^_^)
