    Kim's Belts...

    Here is my ammo belt build as of right now...

    This belt has been very time consuming and difficult at times...

    I wanted the pouches to be usable - which presented and interesting problem for me...

    The belt still is not complete and I have been working on it for about 2 months now... I am very close though. I need to add the stitching to the flaps and then attach them to the pouches and I am done.

    Here is the build:








    I am lining each pouch with a very stiff black felt which is keeping each pouch nice and straight...

    I bought about 2 yards of the Vinyl at a fabric store not to far from my work... they had every color imaginable of the stuff!

    and I love that contact cement! Works great!
    That and JB Weld will hold my costume together!

    Working for quite a while this weekend and I finished my jumpsuit, all of the pouches, the spats and my vest...

    I had some professional help here from my Aunt who happens to be an incredible seamstress!

    Ignore the color differences you see in the jumpsuit, all will be dyed to match.

    I kinda like that 2-tone flightsuit.
    Not for Boba, but maybe for a custom Mando or something.
