Welcome to Arkham City by AmmieChan Welcome to Arkham City by AmmieChan
I like this photo cause it shows off the insane boot covers I had to make for this thing. Another challenge that pushed my skills to a new level. I rate this costume as "hard" just because of the boot covers!

This cosplay is amazing, oh my gosh! :3

Is there ANY chance you can make a tutorial for the boot covers?

I'm trying to make a Harley cosplay myself, but I can't find any decent tutorials on how to make the boots...

If you could help out, I'd be very grateful :)

Thanks for the comment! I didn't make a tutorial while I was making these (I have made 3 pairs and didn't even photograph WIP) The boots were indeed the hardest thing about the costume. The best way I can help out is suggest getting your base shoes first. I found a pair of slip on platform style shoes. They are almost like loafers, but with a platform. From there, put them on and trace your leg while wearing the shoes. This gives you a base pattern. Since I used pleather that did not stretch I had to add about 2 inches extra and then seam allowance around the entire boot. The only seam lines on these are up the front and up the back. The bottom part that goes around the shoe (the black part) is made of lycra. This makes a perfect snug fit around the base shoe. All the random details on the front are just top stitched on. 
There is a zipper that runs up the back. I used a 22 inch zipper (just so I can slide the shoe in and out because I use the same pair of shoes for each boot cover for Asylum, City and Revenge Harley).
I hope that helps a bit. If I get time I will post a tutorial. I get a lot of inquiries about these boot covers and multiple questions asking how they were made. Boot covers are tough! 
Good luck with your Harley! I'm sure it will be fantastic :)

I was wondering if you by chance had a how-to or something similar on how to make this costume? I love it and haven't been able to find a lot of places to buy, and nothing near this quality.

I don't have a tutorial at all for this costume. I drafted the thing by hand myself. It's hard to explain the amount of work and detailing that went into it. The boots were the hardest thing by far. If you check out my Cosplay.com or Amercian Cosplay Paradise accounts (Username: Ammie) I have a somewhat detailed description on how I made this outfit. Other then obtaining one from the net, I know SandySuicide (Sandy's Boutique) makes them. Her's look fantastic!
