Sad story. Sad I've got my Tatooine Padme out here to help cover when Padme is needed, but I left my battle maiden with my parents in MN. That costume is just so fragile and doesn't travel well.

Meh, I understand the boot dillemma Rachel. Depending on the boot material you might be able to repair them with paint. Amadalia

My Leia boots have survived a year so far, so here's keeping my fingers crossed that they keep together. My poor handmaiden/pilot boots are starting to really take a beating though, and I've only been trooping with them for 9 months.

I guess the secret is real leather boots rather tan vinyl, which is way easier done in black boots than white ones.

I got my black boots for padme from the thrift store i actually prefer getting all of my shoes there the stuff might be used and older but it's made MUCH MUCH better! Actually i got parts for my raven claw costume from there (the shirt and skirt) very reasonable.
