So as I wait for the remainder of my various Mara pieces to come in I've started working (or returned to working) on my Leia Projects. I've run into a bit of a problem when it comes to boots. Basically when it comes to ANH Senate Leia Im honestly just having trouble identifying a pair that would be approvable and when it come to huttslayer finding an olive green base that fits (oh the joys of being size 12). Does anybody have reccomendations?

Hmm... there are those more-or-less replica boots on Amazon, but I assume you already ruled those out because of shoe size.

I'm only a size 10, so not as much trouble as a size 12, but I've had okay luck on ebay, more so than other sites.

If you can find shoes in the right shape, you may be able to use shoe paint to color them, though I'm not sure how well white works over darker colors: https://angelusdirect.com/collections/paint It might take lots of coats. I suspect tan suede boots could be painted with that kind of paint too, if needed.

You can also use gray boots for Huttslayer. I found these which would work. You'd just need to cut them and sew but super easy to do. I did that with an olive pair I found by this same brand. They DO have size 12 right now. Very Happy

Good luck and if you have questions on Slave Leia build at all, please feel free to ask. I really enjoyed making mine and have a detailed build thread on the items I used etc.
