    Thundrkiss, the problem is when I get the boxes made I have to get at least 100 boxes at a time. Each box cost almost $7 to have made. So if I did a run I have to have at least 10 people on a run. If I get a run list of 10 I would have a few left over and I could give you a cost then.

    Here are Volkerc's ESB boxes. Should have this finished tomorrow. I'll be taking my sewing machine to work tomorrow and if I can get it done before 3pm it will also go out tomorrow. Thanks.

    Sorry I'll be more specific. What I wanted to know is if the belt itself (not the belt pouche things) are ESB styled and not ROTJ. I wish I had a pic to explain. ROTJ had like 6 brass things and ESB had only 2.

    Is there a rule of thumb on how much to add from your real waist size to get to what size your belt should be. I do not have all of my costume yet to measure it myself. Thanks for your help!

    Still hoping on more people wanting functioning belts. If not I will have to see what else I can dig up.

    Ok guys sorry for the delay, I think I finally got the right brown to stay on Volkerc's belt. Good news is that it may have took me 4 trys but I got 4 sets ready in the process. I'll have more pics up tonight.

    volker here's your special Choclate brown ESB belt. Sorry it took awhile to do this but getting the color to stay was kinda hard.

    If anyone else wants the dark brown color let me know.

    Seeker no I didn't. I used a dk brown oil dye first, after awhile it tends to lighten up too much so I use a dk brown stain to go over it, if it still lightens up I mix a bit of black oil dye with the dk brown and redye.

    After looking at many of the hi-res photos, the dark brown seems to be the more accruate color for both ROTJ and ESB. So thats what I will be doing.
