Step 1: Materials
Step 2: The Sabaton
Start with your boot.
Cut out two identical pieces of cardboard. Lay them one on top of the other, then on the boot as shown.
Poke a hole on each side where the pieces intersect, and place a brass fastener there.
Step 3: Good Greave.
Get a Piece of cardboard that wraps at least halfway around your boot.
You may have it any length you want.
On one end of the greave, cut several tabs. Fold these outward.
Step 4: Just Connecting
Using a small piece of cardboard and brass fasteners, connect the Greave to the Sabaton as shown.
Step 5: Color
Use duct tape to color the pieces. You will probably have to take it apart for this.
On the greave, Carefully roll the tape onto the tabs to make a cuffed look.
Now cut halfway down the greave starting from the top, and fold the resulting corners outward. This is so you can move your foot, and walk. It also looks really cool.
Step 6: Stringing
Poke holes where shown and use string to tie the pieces to the boot.
I sued a slipknot on the sabaton, so I could take the piece off of the boot.
