Where did you get the shoes/soles?  I plan to cosplay as Vaati, but my mom says she can't make shoes, so I need to buy some.

I'm sorry, I didn't buy those. I made them.

Ok, do you think you can tell me how you did it?  Maybe if I beg my mom enough, she'll give in and do it for me.

It was very easy, actually; you start with a pair of flip-flops and some craft foam. You use the craft foam to give the sandals the strap over the foot and the straps that go around the leg all the way up to the knee. Mine are crossed at the back because...well, I think they actually are in the character since we don't get any shots of him from behind. The sandal straps close in the back with velcro, use hot glue and metal pins at the bottom of the foot tomake sure the straps stay attached to the sandal and red acrylic paint.
Good luck!

Thanks! I think I might be able to do it with a little help, because I do crafts all the time and this seems simple enough to make!

I'm going to make the shoes, and I was wondering if you could tell me if the part that goes on your calf is attached to the bottom of the flip-flop?  I can't tell from the picture.

Yes, the straps are attached to the bottom of the flip-flop, but not underneath it.
The straps would attach to the flip-flop underneath my heel.

My bf, she loves purple. But she refuses to be a guy with purple hair! She did say she didn't know what cosplaying is, but after I explained it, she didn't get the purpose

That's too bad.
Maybe cosplaying is just not for her,

that's amazing. how'd you do the costume?

RyuukiCorvin Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you.
The answer to your question might be a little vague seeing as how most of the costume was just sewing.
The sandals were made from flip-flops and craft foam and almost any other accessory you see is also made from craft foam.
