  • Make your own Bleach Cosplay sandals (waraji)

    I started these and my brother ended up finishing them. Very easy instructions to follow. I used 7lb jute twin from Lowes for weaving, and sisal rope. Only made one so far but they can be done fairly quickly if you do it all in spaced out sittings so you don't get bored. These took about 3 days for one shoe, maybe about an hour and a half total time. I made my loom a little too fitted to my foot so mine looks a little funny, but it works. I'll be cosplaying rukia and have heard some bad reviews on buying these sandals. Weaving my own seemed daunting, but they aren't hard to make at all, really cheap too. For grip on the bottoms, since the show floor at my regular con is polished and ill be slipping, i'm going to put some drawer lining on the bottoms. They're rubber mats that you can buy...see more »I started these and my brother ended up finishing them. Very easy instructions to follow. I used 7lb jute twin from Lowes for weaving, and sisal rope.

For grip on the bottoms, since the show floor at my regular con is polished and ill be slipping, i'm going to put some drawer lining on the bottoms. They're rubber mats that you can buy for kitchen drawers so things don't slide around. They have little holes so you can just weave it right onto the bottom of the shoe. Probably going to use sewing string in tan so there's no lumps. The drawer lining is also very thin and cushiony so added support bonus! and they stick! so you definitely won't slide. For a tighter weave we put nails in places we'd already weaved to keep it held in place so if anything was tugged the wrong way or not continuously pushed back, all previous weaving wasn't affected.
