Motorcycle Judge Boots 'upgrade'

Decided to dig out my Planet Replicas Judge costumes and do some repairs and 'upgrades'.

They've been lent out to numerous people and events, including the Royal Armouries and a bunch of filming, so they've had a tough life.

Something I always wanted to do was tackle the motorcycle boots. They're very rigid and unforgiving. When filming Judge Minty we created a quick 'stunt' version which chopped the bike boots to bits and attached them to some walking boots. Basically ankle boots with greaves.

These boots were destroyed during filming, so I thought I'd attempt to make a more finished version.

First up, chop down the motorcycle boots. I've just positioned them on some old walking boots to test it works.



Whilst I'm at it, I may as well tidy the boots up by removing some of the branding and replacing it.



I'm waiting for some cheap chelsea boots to arrive. I also hope to add an ankle holster for my Mark I Lawgiver.

A little bit of progress.

New cheap work boots have arrived. Painted green, strap attached.

First clip (of at least 2) for Lawgiver attached and seems to work

I still need to add extra emblems to the back of the boots.

The two clips on the Lawgiver aren't quite strong enough, but I've got an idea for a third fastner which I think will do the trick.
