Elsa Shoes Tutorial Eng. ver. by pisces219320 Elsa Shoes Tutorial Eng. ver. by pisces219320
This is my first tutorial. I hope I didn't miss any details. Please forgive me if there's any grammar error.

This might seems easy, but it took me a whole week to get the size right. And I failed several times when using spray paint, so I have to start all over again. I'm so glad that the shoes turned out just fine. Maybe it's not perfect, but I've done my best. Please leave a comment if you need any help.
Special thanks to :iconzero-o4: for telling me adding some glitter nail polish on the edge can make the shoes looks more shiny and snowy.
Thanks for my friend Lean's advice of using soft plastic, which is really useful. Here's her FB link:
I'm so looking forward to my Elsa cosplay this March, which is also the month of my birthday.:happybounce: 

I discover that nail Polish is a better way to colour when I re-make the shoes. I was going to make a new tutorial but I lost my phone WHICH HAS MY NEW PHOTOS INSIDE!!!!!!! Anyway, if anybody tries to make the shoes, nail polish is a better idea to colour.
Thanks again for reading my tutorial.

Here's Traditional Chinese version if you need it:…

Not sure if you're still looking for where you can buy the plastic or not, but you can find them at fabric stores. I buy mine from Joann Fabric & Craft stores. They carry a few different thicknesses.

That was a piece of transparent plastic table mat.
I'm sorry I can't tell you where to buy it since we live in different country.

YAY!!!! I can't thank you enough, I've been trying to find a way to make elsa shoes, can't wait to try it!!!! Can you wear them for a long time? Is there a chance of the plastic ripping? Can you sew the plastic on?
Thanks SO uch! Also, where can you get the plastic like that (the soft kind)?
Thank you!

Well, I said that the shoes is quite uncomfortable to wear a few days ago, but my friend tried it on and said it's fine. Maybe it's because I'm not used to wearing high heels. Sorry for correcting my reply. Sweating a little...

I'm so glad I can help someone else who also wants to cosplay Elsa! You're Welcome!

1. Yes, You can definitely wear it for a long time, but it is really uncomfortable. I strongly recommend you to bring another pair of shoes with you. Please note that the shoes is not very tight, and you will have to secure it with string or tape or something. I'm still working that out.
2. Honestly, I must say hot glue gun is not the best choice. I used Cyanoacrylate (a.k.a Instant glue or super glue) when I remade the shoes. I used it because I want to speed up the procedure, but it turned out way better than I expect. 
3. It depends on the shoes you prepare, actually. If your soft plastic is thin enough, you can certainly sew it.
4. Mine is actually a piece of transparent plastic table mat. I'm sorry I can't tell you where to buy it since we live in different country.

I hope my answers help.
