Draculaura Boots

I know Halloween has passed so this is a little late but for Halloween my oldest daughter was Draculaura from Monster High. I was going to make the whole costume but I found a good sale so I picked up the costume for $12.

Here is what she looks like:


So I got the outfit for $12 and I got a wig at Dollarama for $2.00 it was black with white stripe so I also got a can of pink hair spray to color the white pink. See those pink boots though?

Yeah my daughter needed those to make the costume complete. I saw this link on pinterest and knew this was how I could make her boots.

In order to make the boots I got 2 rolls of pink duct tape, 1 roll black electrical tape, a pair of flat shoes, and  a pair of knee high socks.

Step 1: Put on the flat shoes and then put the socks on over the shoes.



Step 2:  Cover shoes in duct tape the more layers the stronger it will be. I thought I had a picture of this but I guess not.

Step 3: Take a pair of scissors and cut the sock and duct tape off your leg.

Step 4: Wrap more duct tape around and top of the boot and down the sides that you cut open.

Step 5: Take a leather punch or whatever else you think make do the job and punch holes for the laces. The original link says to measure the holes but I didn't I just lined it up the best I could.

Step 6: Add the details to the boots and the tongue for which I just used a strip of duct tape 2 wide and taped it to the top of the inside of the shoe.

Step 7: Put the boots on lace them up and you are done!

Here they are done she loves them. 

 Here another picture where they are laced up properly she wore them twice once to a school dance and
then once out trick or treating.

After trick or treating the socks were ruined so I had to get rid of the boots but they were well loved and I would totally make boots this way again. 

Here is a picture of the whole costume I think it all came together very well.
