Armored Shoe Cover Tutorial [Camilla from Fire Emblem]

Need to make armor for your shoes? AllieCat Cosplay created this tutorial in partnership with Cosplaysupplies showing how she created her armored shoes in her Camilla build. It’s a straightforward process that you can do easily with eva foam and Worbla. Take a look at the steps below!

How to Make Camilla’s Armored Shoe Covers

Start with a comfortable shoe.

Cover shoe with plastic wrap to protect shoe and make tape removal easy

Cover shoe with packing tape.

Draw on details with marker.

Cut out sections of the armor from that pattern.

Create a ½ inch lip to connect pieces together. Transfer pieces to 2mm foam.

Cover shoe with towel and heat shape 2mm foam pieces to the curvature of the shoe.

Glue foam armor pieces together at the ½ inch lip.

Heat Black Worbla and cover the armor pieces completely.

Repeat on other shoe.

Use 2 inch wide elastic and glue to the bottom of the armor near the arch of the foot. This will be the strap to keep the armor on.

Prime the Black Worbla with 4-5 layers of wood glue, paint and seal. ( note: you can also use other methods for priming, check out our guide here!)
