Hey guys! I have a quick question regarding boots for a sith cosplay im working on. I have spent the majority of my funds on stuff to make the cosplay and thus I am wondering if anyone has any idea where I can find a decently priced pair of boots for the cosplay (I'd like to spend around $70 or less with including shipping in that $70. I want it to look pretty decent so no bulky boots or anything. I'm just curious if anyone has found a good pair for a sith cosplay or could direct me to some?

You mean the spats I assume?
I never took mine off. I don't think they come off. As I recall there was a gap behind them and that's where the ankle gave way to allow your foot to slide in vs having laces or a zip up calf. It might be stretchy behind it. You will most likely see a strange fold or even your leg if it's open.
I picked these up about 7 years ago for my Jedi costume, absolutely love them. They are very comfortable with my added gel inserts, to the point where I am fine at a con and I even wear them in the winter as my normal snow boots! They've held up amazingly over the years, still look good as new. That said, I don't troop or anything so I wasn't looking for boots that met any guidelines, so YMMV.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
