Crafting Fur-Trimmed Boots

kristoff boot tutorial

If you’re working on a Kristoff costume from Frozen or any kind cosplay with fur-trimmed boots, Superhero Costuming forum user DJSpider has a helpful tutorial for you. She’s made Kristoff’s boots twice and has documented the process thoroughly. Some of the supplies include a pair of moccasins, muslin, faux fur, and suede fabric. Be warned that if you work with fur, it will get everywhere but she does have tips to make it easier:

I’m going to flat out tell you that long-pile fur is messy stuff, and it will probably get everywhere. If you opt to use a low-pile fur for the piping between the pieces, you’re smarter than I was! But I used the long-pile fur that would also be used to trim the rest of the costume to keep the color palette consistent.

Another tip – flip the fur over to the back to cut it. Use a razor blade or sharp scissors to cut it, using small snips. If you dive in with giant shears, you’ll end up cutting the fur itself, and it will look choppy as well as GET EVERYWHERE.
