Hi Guys,

Just wondering if these Hispar riding boots would be acceptable for a Leia Endor Commando costume?

http://www.ridersmall.com/main/boots/Tall/ladies/Decent_Ladies_Dressage_boots_wobz.html

I'm planning on getting these for another costume, but would like to make a Leia Commando some time soon too. Would be good if I could use the same pair.

If the Spanish style curve on the outside isn't okay I know it can be cut down by a cobbler (lots of discussions on this on another site).

Thanks!

Sair

It's a really nice boot, except for the curve, and there isn't any blousing in those pants to hide it. I would say that as-is, those boots would not be acceptable, which is a huge shame. You need something cut straight across the top.

Hi Jenna,

Thanks so much for the advice. I think I'll check with a local cobbler/leather worker to make sure that altering these to flat tops is as easy as many have said on 501st forums (because of course we can't trust the dark side! :-). )

Cheers, Sair
