Yoko's Pre-timeskip boots by Foxy-Cosplay Yoko's Pre-timeskip boots by Foxy-Cosplay
So I decided to make a quick and easy tutorial on how to make Yoko's boots, now that I actually feel confident in how they look the third time around.. LOL

1. Purchase a plain white pair of Gogo boot's from online, or a local shoe store in your area. Make sure the boots are a pleather like material, because it is what works best when absorbing paints made for plastics. I purchased this pair off of amazon : [link]

2. Cutting in the fake zipper line:
I would not recommend this method for every gogo boot, because it is a little risky, make sure the boots you are using hug tight to your calves and not loosely or else when cut they may not stay on your feet very securely from being too loose. I used hair-cutting scissors to cut the pleather boots because they slice through them super easily.

3.Painting the flames:
I used red paint markers found in the arts and crafts section at walmart, They are easy to use and dry relatively fast, I also layered the flames 3 or 4 times to make them a deep even red. I only used 1 marker for these pair of boots, the markers cost about 3$ each.

4. Making fake zippers:

I cute these fake chunky zippers out of styrofoam board I had laying around. I used a box cutter. I used outdoor/ interior silver paint to make them appear more metallic. Then after the paint completely dried sprayed them down with clear spray paint to make them shiny. Lastly I sewed to zippers to the boots at the bottom of the fake zipper line. SEWING STYROFOAM IS NOT FUN T.T. If you have more money to spend then I did I would recommend buying silver shiny lining material from walmart instead, which is more flimsy but less thick. lols

Lastly: There is one last step I have not yet done to these , which is paint the zipper lines silver, I am also going to be using a paint marker for this, altogether this project cost me about 35$ total, but I'm sure you can find these boots for a bit cheaper now.

Tell me what you guys think! Hope this helps someone! xDD

I know this is an older project, but I'm working on Yoko boots now and this guide is pretty useful! When you cut for the zipper line did you just cut a line down and then cut out squares?
