Because they FLAP.
Because ALL boots should’ve had them to begin with.
Because they’re downright fun, no matter what anyone else says.
Because they add that perfect extra touch to just about any outfit, be it gothic, steampunk, cosplay, or anything else.
Because BOOTWINGS. That should be explanation enough right there.
Should you get your own set? ABSOLUTELY YES- Go right here to do so!
(Really, though, I was so happy to get an opportunity to work with model/photographer archaical on these- she brings such a great sense of fun and whimsy to a lot of her work, and it’s wonderful to see on these.)
You wanted an afternoon rebloop? WELL, HERE YOU GO, PEOPLE. CHECK OUT AND SHARE THE AWESOMENESS.
Seriously, yes, SHARE/REBLOG it. It’s BootWing season (BootWing Country?) and so help me, we need to justify the amount of butt-working-off that’s been going on around here.
Where can I get THOSE boots though to put the boot wings on?
Ok, let’s address that one right now, because I keep seeing variations on one common thing here a lot in people’s comments as they reblog:
Where can I get the boots?
I wish I had lace-up boots!
I needs me some boots, though!
But Brain, where are we gonna get rubber pants our size?
OK, that last one may not be accurate. BUT I DIGRESS. Let us speak of the important thing here. BootWings, as a name, should not be considered a requirement. Or a legal statement that these can ONLY be applied to lace up boots. It’s just more that “AWESOME-WINGS-THAT-CAN-LACE-ONTO-ALL-SORTS-OF-STUFF-BUT-PRIMARILY-BOOTS” was considered to be too long a name to be marketable. So, let’s cover this here:
Yes, you can lace them onto your boots. HOWEVER:
You can also lace them onto your corset as a cute pair of mini wings (or as cute butt-wings depending on where on the corset you want to lace them on at)
That old pair of Chuck Taylor high-tops? TOTALLY BOOTWINGABLE.
Those stretch armwarmers that happen to have a set of laces for tightening purposes? Add on some bootwings for heroic effect.
IF IT LACES, IT’S BOOTWING-ABLE. I just don’t recommend it on low shoes or sneakers, as the wings’ll end up dragging on the ground- not good for the wings, and if you’re like me, you’ll trip all over yourself. Otherwise? IF IT LACES, WING IT.
(And apologies all, for this rant getting a bit overlong. It’s just… you can do so much MORE with these, ok? Don’t feel held back because you don’t have boots. You’ve likely got SOMETHING that they’ll look awesome on already.)
