[ During the process of my Sora (Kingdom Hearts II) cosplay I actually managed to do something helpful. ]

A new cosplay tutorial, hurray~
According to the poll I created about a week ago people want to see tutorials on "Sora's Shoes" and "Shoulder Armor".
So I'm making them :D

First here's part 1 of the Shoe tutorial.

Once again I want to remind you people that this progress can be done in many different ways. Do as you do best!

If you use my tutorial I'd love to see how your shoes turned out so please post pictures :heart:

PART 2:


Pssst.. I made other tutorials as well:

I made mine like this, but used a different kind of shoe.. and for serious, use THIS ^ kind of shoe, mine were tighter to the foot and I couldn't move the tongue, so after wearing mine for a day the tops of my feet were bruised since after the paper mache there wasn't any give.

Whoa, your poor feet!!
I even found some in H&M that are even better to use. They come in different colors but are basically made of soft fabrics all over (except the sole) and they can stretch! They are amazing! ^^

This is a fantastic, detailed tutorial! I'm actually using this for my Rhyme cosplay since the shoes are so similar. Thank you so much for the reference! c:

I'm so glad that it can help! Only please note that the tutorial never had a "part 3" because I lost the files :C

The shoe that I'm doing isn't exactly the same, but this gives me a wonderful base to begin working on. It's super similar to what I was going to do, but I wasn't sure how it would have worked out. xD" Either way, I'm glad that I can use it as a reference! c:
