Though, I don't think you can get just the boot tops.

No, I'm pretty sure if you contact Jamin directly he can sell individual replacement parts you need. Just ask Smile

Thanks Kathy. I E mailed him last week and I hope to hear something back soon. I just need to get a few parts from him to finish my wife's costume. like the Braid end, and the hair pieces, and arm band.

Best to you.

KayDee,
Thank you so much for posting your tutorial. I just finished my costume. I used Tandy leather for the straps (recommended by other costuming friends) but the leather broke once. Thankfully, I was at home just trying the costume. I see now that you recommend superior leather lace from Tandy. It's the little information like this that is SOOOOO helpful and SOOO frustrating when you don't have it. Thank you!!

I will say that I tried several times to make the top out of wire and sculpey and it broke everytime. Sculpey just isn't that flexible. I bought Jamin's top and made the rest of the costume myself. I'm really happy with it.

It took forever, but I finally got into the Yahoo group (pretty much after I'd gone through all the stress of trying to figure out the costume). I think once I contacted Jamin he may have gone through and done a round of approvals into the group.

Anyway, since it was so impossible to find any useful tips about this costume, I have put together an informative web page. I hope it will help others with hair styling options, undergarment options, how to do touch up and repair painting - etc.

But I didn't make my own kit, so it is not an in depth tutorial on how to make your own costume from clay Wink I only made my chain links and earrings. And well, I had to repaint many of my parts too so there is a little tutorial on that.

I know this might sound silly, but I hope that the fact that I'm pointing out for reference sake that her bun is not braided won't ever become a standard or requirement for our club. You can hardly tell when the decorations are covering it. I think little cheats are OK and saying that 'it was done this way in the movie so we require it to be this way' isn't always a valid argument for a standard Wink
