Still on the hunt for some women’s combat boots and how to wear women’s combat boots.

Ah, the pitter-patter of tiny feet in huge combat boots.

– Mal from Firefly

I tried the All Saints Military Boots on this week at the store, the leather was really soft, and I think once the leather stretched a little they’d probably be really comfortable. but $299 is a lot for some boots that I’m not sure about. (EDIT: I did end up buying the AllSaints boots…!)
What I liked most about the All Saints Military Boots I tried on was that they were very slim looking, not nearly as chunky or bulky looking as my classic Dr Martens. The Dr Marten Triumph boots PROBABLY aren’t as chunky as mine, but that sole is still pretty thick.

I looked through zappos, endless, piperlime, fluevog, dr martens, born… etc… but if anyone has other suggestions on a leather classic combat-style boot, I’m all ears!

I want something that is not too chunky, have to come in US11 womens or the equivalent, really good quality that will be comfortable and last a long time.

What do you think I should go with?

And lets not forget inspiration from geek stuff and television shows… (Amelia Pond from Doctor Who in Triumph Dr ¬†Martens, River Tam from Firefly in Gladiator boots, Jane Lane (and Daria) from Daria and Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer in combat boots)

Cosplay Combat Boots

And of course, the Doctor himself (who wears AllSaints).

Since it’s hard for me to find shoes I like in my size, I have kind of a bad habit of buying shoes I find, perhaps more than some other girls… (at least the number of temptations is smaller…?)

Lately I’ve been trying to reevaluate the shoes in my closet and make sure that all the ones I have, I like, AND are reasonably comfortable.

I have a pair of¬†Dr Martens White Rose Stencil Boots 1C57 and a pair of Frye Belted Harness boots, but if I wear them all day, they tend to rub the back of my heel. If you google “breaking in leather boots” lots of people say it takes a while to break leather boots in (and yes, specifically Dr Martens). I think I’ve probably worn each for maybe 5 days total. I’m guessing I need to keep wearing them almost every day for at least a month (or how long is normal?) These are companies that people swear by. ¬†But I’m not sure what ¬†a boot that fits me well should truly feel like.

I had my eyes on a pair of¬†Dr Martens Triumph 1914 Boots (Black). (Yes, the ones that Amy Pond wears in Doctor Who)… but really I just really like them. But I shouldn’t get them if they’re going to hurt my feet, right?

Had a great time at Michelle (Chubby Bunny)’s Bunnies & Bows Show Saturday night!

The event was a combination Birthday Party, fashion show, art show and debut for Michelle’s new Chubby Bunny accessories! You can see all her new accessories and buy them at her website here!

  • Be sure and head over to¬†JapanLA before¬†May 29th to check out all the awesome artwork (or purchase any of it!)

I won some amazing makeup from Sugarpill and an adorable black and magenta bow from Chubby Bunny for wearing my Victorian that night! WOW! Sugarpill focuses on really vibrant eyeshadow colors, something we’re seeing a lot more of… and me personally, I really like to wear bright makeup for events and for cosplay… and even just going out. I’ve been especially wanting some strong metallic gold, lately. I’d tried a couple brands and none of them were as bright as what I wanted. But I got some Goldilux Loose eyeshadow in my bag among other awesome things… so I totally lucked out.¬†I can’t wait to try!

Kerli was there and helped judge the costume/outfit contest as well as model some Chubby Bunny items! ¬†I like Kerli’s music. My favorite of hers might be her Walking On Air video (love the fashion and the dolls! and her TeaParty and Army of Love videos are pretty fab, too!) I think it’s pretty awesome that Kerli makes a lot of her own stuff, also.

Above, Kerli’s actually wearing my favorite of Michelle’s new Chubby Bunny pieces, the Rosy Garden Lolita Headpiece. I just love those big candy-like striped bow-loops.

Have you seen Greg¬†de Stefano‘s awesome behind-the-scenes video on the styling for the Kerli/CB product shoot, yet?

Also be sure and check out the Kerli X Chubby Bunny contest (which is open now till May 13th…!)
