Draenei Hoof Tutorial by nekokelly Draenei Hoof Tutorial by nekokelly
No, they aren't uncomfortable. They were more comfortable than many of my heels, to be honest.
Yes, they are heavy.
But the added weight helped keep me upright.
I was able to walk around all night, up and down stairs, as well as dance, with no trouble.

Materials Used
Old platform boots with the heels removed, and a wooden platform attached to the bottoms for added height.
Wire mesh (window screen, to be exact)
Paper mache
Bondo
Ardex Feather Finish Cement
Acrylic paint
Polyurethane
Craft foam sheets & faux leather (hot glued on) for the "armor"

*edit* I was just popping on before bed and saw a DD?? Holy cow, thank you so much :0 *dies of joy*

What kind of bondo did you use? The wood filler kind or the kind used for Cars?

I have been wracking my brain on how to make 2 peices of wood curve and shape like hoofs. Alot of people use Resin, or even rubber molds to make hoofs. I not having that kind of cash, thought i would make my own!!!

My boots are not platforms, so ill have to use a BIT more wood then that. BUT. I cant wait to give this a shot!!! Im so excited!!!!

I know this was posted forever ago, but this helps greatly with my Fawn Cosplay!!! and i dont have to pay 300 dollars for someone to make me a pair of hoof shoes!!! (only mine will be covered in fur) :3

THANK YOU!!!~

If you were making paws, rather than hooves...would you need the wooden blocks? Just wondering...

Nicely done. I love that they turned out comfortable and easy to walk in. I think I'll use this for my friend's cosplay because that was my main concern when she asked me to make hooves for her.

Would you be able to wear these without the added wood on the bottom, you think? I'm considering using this for a pony cosplay but I don't think I want hooves that are quite that big.
