I have been dreaming about making a mega armor suit for some time now, and I think I'd really like to start.
I have a pretty good idea of how I'm going to make it, but the one thing that is tripping me up a bit is how to make raised shoes.
I'm fairly tall, but I think I'll want to make the mega armor taller than I am, so I'm looking to raise my height by ~6" to a foot.
What's a good idea to make raised shoes? I'm thinking just boots strapped to some stacked wooden 2x4s, but I fear that may be a little heavy. Then again, I want it to be sturdy, too.
Anyways, what's a sturdy but relatively light way to make a raised sole on shoes? Any suggestions? I was looking at drywall stilts for a while, but they are too tall and expensive.
