i had bought some cheap boots to work into legolas ones for a costume and then never did it (someone decided at the last minute to be a ringwraith

still waiting, le khan.
Well, if you created a wraith, you must be very handy at the forge! I'd never attempt those steel sabatons (had to look that word up). Alex had me make him a wraith costume during one of the years LotR was in theaters. I couldn't believe there were no ready-made Nazgul costumes at local shops. Anyway, with no pattern and a quickly growing Alex, it took me long enough that it was too short by the time I finished. He just wore sneakers.
Found that there are some boots available for around $40. At twice that price (and less than the $300 - $800 range), Minnetonka has the best boots. I don't think we'd do much with them; he's already sufficiently riveted, studded, grommeted, and mailled. The boots are better left understated.
I hope TheKhan has not had a serious head injury. I can't think of any other reason why someone would toy with you
for so long.
