Cosplay Tutorial: Changing the Color of Leather, Pleather and PVC

81o2X8E7YzL._SL1500_Sometimes it’s hard to find the right color shoe to match your costume! This is an easy way to change the color of any leather, pleather or PVC shoe (it also works on clothing!) with a type of spray paint you find in an auto store. The spray is made for changing the color of car seats so it’s made to soak in and stay flexible.

I use this technique a lot and it works way better than regular spray paint. If you’ve tried that then you know how it will flake off and crack after one wearing. I’ve had good luck with Color Bond Seat Stylin, which can be found on Amazon. <– affiliate link. This brand has some colors that are harder to find in-store, like purple and blue. You can always find red, black and tan at any auto parts store.

It works best to use several light layers so it has time to soak in. Make sure you stuff your shoes with tissue paper to avoid painting the inside and also cover any zippers or parts you don’t want painted with tape.

I did a video showing this technique on my YouTube channel:
