    Help me with this madness!

    I know this is going to sound really stupid, but it's ok because I feel stupid that I can't figure this out for
    the life of me.......how do you buckle the girth belt? Every way I try feeding the strap through,the pin just
    slips right out of the belt. I don't get it,I can figure out some really technical aspects of this costume,but
    this belt is puzleing me,lol
    thanks

    photo-8-jpg Im not sure about the accuracy of this.. but if you lock the strap over the inside bar of the buckle near the base of the pin, it ain't goin nowhere. Sorry about the pic of my butt.

    That's it. Cut a hole. I used a grommet/eyelet to keep it from fraying.

    If you're going for accuracy don't use an eyelet the real belt just has a frayed hole poked in it.

    I used a heated metal rod to melt my holes into my woven plastic straps

    That's what I did Spy007. But why do I do with the ends of the straps?
    do they just hang or do I tie then off, or tuck them behind the belt it's self?

    Personally, I plan to tuck any extra in, but there are pictures from the movie both ways if you dig through the gallery section here on the TDH.
