1989 Boot Spats Build


So i took the liberty of try to make a fan build of the 89 boot spats. I know they look kinda messy buuuuut, what do you think guys Which of the 2 models i made deserve a pair?

The one on the left or the one on the right? Common dont be shy! I like the one in the left.

Or should i built another one again. My brother told me they look awful! Should i throw them in the garbage?

Is there any technique to do this better?

Kinda hard to tell from the photos. The one on the left is the better of the two. What are they made of?

Both look decent but I agree, what material are they? Look like latex to me. I suggest cleaning them up and painting them before making a final decision.

Wouldn't something more flexible be better material for wearing on boots?

Fiberglass resin is not great for prop making to be totally honest. It us usually pretty soft as resin's are concerned. Still, not a bad first attempt.

Re: 1989 Boot Spats Build


I think they are a little too narrow at the base.
Got the overall look though.
