Option 2 or 3 look like the boots I used and was approved with. Buckles etc have to be removed of course but the general look and color is correct.

For the cape I think I like the look of 1 or 5 the best. Smile The waffle weave is nice, but I'm worried it's too tight.

As for the boots I'm really not sure. As you said you will need to do a lot of work yourself, so these would serve as the base.

Hi there! So I agree on 2 and 3 being the best options out of those boots, you don’t want anything that isn’t a leather or leather-like fabric as that won’t look right with the boot spats. I found these online and got them for my Padmé, there have the correct sole so you just need to paint them and cover them with the spats! I like the idea of painting myself because then it’s easier to match all the colors.

As for the cape I’d say 1 and 5 as well. We are pretty lenient with the cape since it’s very difficult to find something super accurate, so I wouldn’t stress too much on that! Plus it’s not required so you can wait till you’re satisfied with one and add it to your costume later. Good luck with the costume! Amadalia
