Hi everyone, I'm starting the research for this costume, it is a long term goal for me, since I'm a little broke at the moment Smile

I'm going to start with the boots/greaves, since that will probably be the hardest part, I figure if I can make those look good, the rest should be fairly simple.

miralys51 is awesome, and has provided me with a bunch of screen shots, many thanks to her!!

A few questions about the boots/greaves...





Am I correct in seeing the purplish, more sunken in area of her greaves as part of the armor? I could also see it as a cut-out, and the purple is part of her pants...but it seems to be much lighter than the rest of the pants.
I've also had a suggestion that it looks like she is wearing pants that are actually stockings, and cover her feet, then she is wearing the greaves over her legs, and wearing silver toed sandal/wedges on her feet. This seems the least feasible to me, but only b/c it's really cold planet, and I would think boots would be more reasonable Smile

Any ideas? I'm going to make the first attempt out of craft foam, since I need to be able to slide them over my leg and still sqeeze my foot through! I thought about PVC or Wonderflex, but I would have to make the greaves "clip" on, and I'm not sure how to do that.

It looks to me more like a sunken-in part of the boot-cover.

Looks like it's part of the boot cover.

Yup, the color is different than the material in her pants. Seems to be part of the boot cover itself...

I'd also agree that she is wearing boots not silver-toed wedge shoes. Especially in the cold & snow. Brrr! Shocked
