Sometimes the best part of a costume is a little attention to detail. If your costume has hooves, why not make a pair of shoes into durable, realistic-looking hooves to add a little something extra to your outfit?
In this Instructable, I will go over the materials and steps required to make hooves out of a beat-up pair of old, comfy shoes or sneakers. To make them the "long way" that I did, you should start TWO WEEKS before when you'll need them. There is also a "quick way" that I'll annotate in the instructions, which can be made in just a day or two. The "quick way" hooves may break if you are rough on your feet because they are not reinforced with cast plaster like the "long way" pair. In fact, the "long way" pair that I made survived a weekend convention and an hour jumping up and down at a concert with only minor nicking. They will last you a very long time!
I have also written an Instructable on how to make the digitigrade animal legs as well. Please check it out if you'd like the whole outfit!
