Pasted from LoL post, sorry if you’ve already seen...

My custom Leia boots arrived today from cosplay668 on eBay. For about $60 Australian, they’re not bad. They were made and posted very quickly. However, fit is a bit off (yet to double check with measuring tape but see legs comparatively for idea of space, definitely too tight/short internally), but stitching looks reasonable and finish is average (eg some kind of brown tape over black sole). They’ve gone to the effort of hiding zipper with Velcro closure along the back, which is good.

The big question... would they pass RL? If so I’ll look at getting the errors rectified but if not won’t bother.

based on that singe picture it is not really possible to say that they would or would not pass as not all of the boot is visible.

From what I can see the top opening looks very lose on you and I wish the heel was not so distinct but the heel is my own preference

** just to clarify we should also be able to see the outer side and the back to determine any recommended or required fixes to the boots

Some more angles. The back velcroes together.

My biggest concern is how loose it seems to be at the top and the heel but I asked Blue (another judge) to weigh in and give her two cents

Thank you. The measurements I gave were about an inch bigger than my calf circumference to allow wiggle room and to tuck in pants/gun for Jedi Leia, but they were made bigger again than the measurements provided there, and smaller everywhere else.
