I know it's early but I'd like to get a head-start on next years costume.

I'm trying to think of a suitable material that I can cut, stack & glue to the bottom of a pair of old work boots to use as the shoes of Frankenstein's monster. I was hoping for at least four inches. Something that's not too expensive. I've been wanting to do this for a long time. Any suggestions?

Nice link RCIAG, you can't go wrong with Evil Ted, it looks ambitious but Evil Ted takes you step by step, I wanted to fabricate a Faraam Helmet for cosplay for my son, I found one of his tutorials, which I didn't think I could pull off but I did..Evil Ted rocks!

Thanks a lot. I've seen the 1st vid, DYI: Platform Shoes, which requires purchasing several pairs of flip-flops & removing the straps. I hadn't seen the 2nd one. If I do this, I think I would go with the 2nd option, by Evil Ted.

Thanks again.

I've never heard of Evil Ted until now, I just started watching vids.

The first one seems easy &, while flip flops are cheap, I didn't like the look of those the way they were finished but it seemed easy, quick & light which is something to take into consideration if you'll be wearing them all night. You could easily put a covering over them like in the 2nd vids but the Evil Ted vids were a little more in depth & much cooler looking. I wouldn't have ever though to make forms out of wood or flip flops.

It was something I'd never thought about or searched for so I'm glad you asked. I went into the spiral of watching a vid about Frankenshoes to making armour, to helmets, it was interesting, fun & pretty useful if I ever need it.

How did people learn to do stuff before Youtube?!?:D:D

I learned to replace my brake pads & rotors from YouTube videos. I bought a floor jack, jack stands, msc. tools, parts & other necessary stuff, and, Thanks to YouTube & Auto Zone, I still saved about $500.
