An Alternative to Traditional Boot Covers

This was pretty well-received on my Facebook, so I decided to throw it up on Tumblr as well. :) I recently tried out a new idea for customizing boots for my Zidane costume, and it worked out just as I’d hoped! It was a great route to go since I didn’t want to cover my boot soles with fabric (like traditional boot covers do), and I also didn’t want to have seams going down the front all the way to the toe. This method may not be ideal for all applications, but I thought it was worth sharing! 

Sorry that this isn’t very in depth. Unfortunately, when making my boots, I didn’t photograph certain critical steps, and those steps are difficult to explain without a visual, so I decided to just make a semi-tutorial that explained the gist of the idea. If you have any specific questions about how I did this though, feel free to drop me an ask! Or, better yet, send me a PM on my page (conversations are so much easier to follow that way). :)



I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.

I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).

They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.

Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work.  That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming.  I love this.



this is the best 30 seconds or so of my life
