OH DEAR GOD MY FEET HURT!

After three days of walking marathon lengths in ridiculous, cheeply made high heels, it is nice to sit down and have my feet flat on the ground.

Anyone else feel the pain?

My friend was Sailor Jupiter and wore these killer shoes with huge heels. She was in the registration line for 8 hours in them, she was going to die. She ran to her car and immediately got out of them afterwards.

Dude! I wore the boots I wore last year because I felt fine in them last year (only went half a day last year) and I didn't realize I might get sick of wearing them after three days, so I didn't pack comfy shoes. Good lord my feets hurted! I went to the Underground Rave and the Soap Bubble, and I seriously felt like taking a machete to my feet after hours of continuous dancing.

But... it was worth it!

I wore school girl loafers (Yes, authentic ones) Oh man I felt like I had needles in my feet every time I took a step. Buuuuuut that's just what I had to deal with for the love of crossplaying the awesome Suzumiya Haruhi.

I was Haseo 1st form, and the shoecovers turned out way to small, and there was no time to make them bigger.
so i had to buy a pair of SLIPPERS that were 2 sizes too small.
I currently have 3 blisters... >_>

I would still do it again.

Oh man do I agree.
Next time I wear those riding boots I'll have to bring the horse too.

Never before have I felt so much pain. Looked good though, until I started limping.

Vincent pointy toed boots. Enough said. But for the effect, it was definitely worth it. It was just the stairs that killed me.

Oof. I actually had pretty comfortable Pumas on (Travis Touchdown), but I decided to counteract the comfort factor of my shoes by bending my legs in all crazy ways in every pose I made.

My boots for my shippuuden Sakura cosplay were actually made from size 8.5 boots, but had the toes cut off//opened up for the costume. And thus, I could then by default fit my size 10.5 feet into them. Regardless of that, I still felt as if my ankles were going to self destruct. I should have learned my lesson two years ago...but yet I keep wearing them. -____-

oh yeah, I also got a wicked sunburn on my shoulders at a photoshoot on Saturday. *cries*

Oh god... I was walking around in Jungle boots in my Revolver Ocelot costume... the thing is, Jungle boots are made for fighting on soft, muddy ground, not concrete. And they were NOT designed for spurs, which clamped my heels right proper.. I feel all of your pain as well.

Hah! Hey, Ocelot, it's Haku. n.n

Anyway, I'm not in much of a position to complain, but I think my feet were not made for sandals. I have a blister or two, but it was worth it to be sure! n.n;;

my songstress boots just about beat the crap out of me. Seriously there were times when I sat down and seriously my feet were still burning 20 minutes later. They still hurt a tad to walk on. What really sucked about them was that they're too small to put insoles in. Like, my feet just fit so putting anything in would make them too tight.

other than that though, it was amazing. I even had someone tell me I was the first person who actually made the boots right!

The sandals I hacked for Mr. Despair turned out to be real painful when worn too long, and even with the velcro I had problems keeping them in place. Something about my feet does not go well with sandals ><. I just nixed it and went with shoes most of the time i was him.

Other than that little problem with shoes, the pair I hacked for Dio were a pain getting on and one lost a sole but they still felt fine.

My feel felt horrible after the Line-con on friday, and with all the walking/staying up, they never quite recovered. Ouch!

It was as if I had walked in the Sahara barefooted for a few hours.

I crossplayed Friday and Saturday, and now my feet and legs hurt. I also have blisters on both feet. I was in lolitaish crossplay.

Mitsuru boots. Owww owww. I thought I was saving money when I found good looking boots for only $20, but oh, the possible doctor bills... Thank goodness I only wore them the two days. Next time, I'll buy the $150 boots.

You didn' walk around outside very much, did you?

The rocks out there nearly killed my feet, and I think they were doing something with the asphalt on Friday, because when I stepped on it wihtout noticing it felt like I was alking on fire. :( OWIE!!!!!

I think by far, my feet probably has hurt the most from this weekend then any other con. I need to start remembering to buy shoes that are comfortable for cosplay sake, but it doesn't help partially spraining an ankle either because of crappy cosplay shoes.

yeah I had these huge heels on both days... but the ones for Sailor Mercury were cheaply made because I got them for about $13 at payless... I forced my boyfriend to rub my feet about five times.
My friend had it worse though. She wore bright orange heels from Charlotte Russe (the Claire's of clothing stores) and the shoes were made so that all of your body weight was forced right onto the ball of your foot. I wore them for two minutes and I knew her feet were going to kill her for the rest of the time.

No heels next year! I'm determined.... Although they did make my legs look really nice.
