Re: Under C3PO Wearable Feet


Allso some people have drilled 4 holes in the back of the heel so someone can tie them up.I think this is how they did this in the films.

You can also glue a piece of 1.5" elastic across the bottom of the foot shells, so that it wraps under the ball or slightly in front of the arch of your foot. This will prevent your foot from popping out under the shells.

Re: Under C3PO Wearable Feet


These are good suggestions, I drilled 4 holes in the back of my shes, and put a gold grommet in each hole so that they could lace up in the back, Just like the movie shoes emoticon - Later I opted to connect the back with velcro, just for convenience sake, but both methods will work. I also used "Dive Socks" under my shoes just like you did! They worked great.

I also put one large piece of elastic across the bottom as pan3po said:

That's all I needed to keep the foot attached.

My advice to everyone with ABS shoes... ORDER MORE THAN ONE PAIR! After much use, They will get trashed! I would highly suggest getting 2 or three pairs and having them all VMed at the same time. They are cheap, and I promise you, you will not regret it.

Also, PRIMER YOUR SHOES! The VM process does not adhere well to plain ABS, put a nice coat of automotive primer on them.

The tops of my shoes came off completely and I ended up having to make them again out of fiberglass and spray paint them gold emoticon
