Should I wear full stockings or thigh highs, or no stockings for my Misa Amane cosplay? I'll be doing the movie version of her outfit and. I'm not sure, since she changes outfits often.

The boots I'm wearing will be just under knee length. Erika Toda, the actress for Misa, didn't wear any type of stockings, or just nude ones when she wore those boots.
She wore black and white striped leggings while wearing some sneakers.
Then there's manga/anime Misa, who usually wears black lace or fishnet leggings.

I can't get new boots because apparently here in Chicago, even if it's freezing outside, it's smart to start putting out spring clothes.

I have BROWN ankle boots but I feel like those would clash too much with the mainly black and some red color scheme.

What would my best bet be?
My mom actually suggested thigh-highs, but honestly I've seen it look ridiculous with knee high boots...

I'd go with thigh highs or fishnets. That's me though.

What I'm worried about is them not showing, or falling down into the boots ha.

I'd personally recommend against thigh highs, unless you invest in a really good garter belt. Thigh highs just LOVE to fall down! Between stockings and nothing, either go with what makes you most comfortable, or what's weather appropriate (it wouldn't surprise me if it was 80 degrees or if it was 30, knowing Chicago...) But regardless if you wear stockings or thigh highs or nothing, DEFINITELY wear a thick pair of socks. That last thing you want is for those boots to give you a blister. Been there, done that.

OH GEEZ WOW I WROTE NOTHING I'M SO BRAIN DEAD TODAY
I did mean socks, definitely.
Honestly, last year I wore character shoes all day, and wore really thin pantyhose. That was painful.

I really hate the weather around here, at least since the con was moved to May rather than April it's a bit more predictable.
My experience with thigh highs was really them just falling a lot, or one side falling awkwardly and the other staying up...
Thank you for the help!
