I can't believe how simple it was, and how stupid I was for not trying it in the first place.
Well, as we all know, there is a dearth of good footwear for the female figures, especially boots.
The Dinah pirate/rain boots are damned difficult to find in other colors besides black or blue.
No offense DocMego, but you are the ONLY one to have those boots reproduced, and ONLY in those colors.
I was dressing a Dinah I got off of ebay; she has a few flaws, but she is very pretty and needs something to WEAR!
So, I tried white tights, with an old homemade nurse's outfit that she came with (after I washed the dress!) but, she needed boots or shoes to complete the ensemble.
The shortie boots weren't the look I was going for, but the only other boots I had were the Hero Boots from Castaway Toys that I had bought sometime back, but never used.
I put them on, and they FIT! Okay, they are a smidge loose in the calves, but they stay one, and that's what counts.
However, it still wasn't the look I was going for.
So, I grabbed a Will Scarlett tunic, black tights and red hero boots, put them on the Dinah, and they WORK!
They freaking WORK!
Okay, maybe the tunic isn't an exact match for the look I was hoping for, but it's a start.
I'm thinking a red bodice that reaches down to mid-thigh, with red short sleeves, and attached long black sleeves on the inside; kind of a layered look.
I also have a black cape with a red lining that I had a guy make for me, which will complete the look.
I just need to have the tunic made, seeing as I have no place to set up a machine and I am pants with hand sewing.
Oh, Theressa! I might have a commission for you!
I'll send you a PM!
Oh, and what I was referring to was putting the Castaway boots on the girls. You just need tights to make them snug up against the foot and leg.
Just in case anyone was confused as to what the heck I was talking about.
