    Re: New movie sized ammo belt, FINISHED!!!!!! update 3/29

    Alright, belt #2 has been finished. ESB leather belt with real stitching!






    Here's an idea of what a ROTJ belt would look.


    And here's how they begin life.




    Here's a little fun. My latest belt on top, my very, very, very first vinyl belt from YEARS ago!

    WOW man, you are really going fast. I guess you solved the power cord problem allready. I cant wait to see belt #4

    Once you get to it let me know about that other little thing
    By the way, great looking ESB belt. I like the fact that the pouches on belt #2 look darker than the first one.

    Hmmm, decided to put on the entire thing. Couldn't get the jet pack on all by myself though.
    Special thanks to Jorneymanprotector for letting me use his belt.

    Merged: Boba ammo pouch belt, now accepting payments

    I am now taking payments on these belts. Realistically, only for the leather ones. I'm still trying to iron out the bugs on the vinyl ones.
    Leather belt with fake stitching, $125. ESB or ROTJ.

    Leather belt with real stitching, $150. ESB or ROTJ. Once I get the vinyl ones ironed out, they too will be $150.
    http://200.72.134.171/cdref/tdh/img/jmbelt5.jpg

    Just PM me. Include waist size, movie version, and what type of belt you'd like. There are at least 3-4 different belts, Pre-pro, ESB, AOSW, and MOM.
    Again, none of these pouches function.

    Absolutely AWESOME! I love that real stitching on the leather.I think I'm being swayed back to the leather.BTW,the new pouches of belt#2 look darker,and much more like the ESB belt IMHO.That is unless it's a coincidence,and just a trick of the flash on the camera.

    Great lookin' work.

    I'm a very excited boy! hehehe

    One question though . . . Do the snaps really go on the outside of the ESB belt pouches like that? To me it always looking like they were on the inside, and just kind of the "shape" of them showed through to the outside.

    Now get back to work on the vinyl! hehe

    The belts look amazing SC! How thick is the leather that the actual belt part is made from? I ordered the Tandy Leather stuff, I think MaxPlague used, and I still haven't been able to sew the thread through it. It's so freakin thick! How do you sew through that stuff?

    Hey Jer, yes the snaps really go on the outside of the belt.

    Re: New movie sized ammo belt, FINISHED!!!!!! update 3/29

    Don't try to confuse me with the snaps now!
    As for sewing through the leather, it's a little tough. The machine barely wants to do it. Sometimes I have to turn it by hand when it gets stuck.
    I've got a new idea on the vinyl, I'll be trying a new idea today. Hopefully it works!

    By the way, I like the last 8 pouches to the right. They have more of a ROTJ color to them. Are they a lighter in color than the first 7 or is it a camera thing.

    Re: New movie sized ammo belt, FINISHED!!!!!! update 3/29

    Actually, those 8 pouches are for a ROTJ belt. They're not for my costume though...they're going to be shipped to PR.

    Now I have to admit publicly that I turned my back on ESB. Yes, My Fett is ROTJ. Sorry WPK but many of the parts of my Boba Fett costume are allready ROTJ so there was no point on getting an ESB belt anymore. But, that dose not mean that I will not make an ESB variation

    SC, many thanks, the pouches look great.

    Hey Toby,
    What's the difference with the horizontal stitching on the belts? First esb has four horizontally stitched lines, esb2 has only two? Are there two versions or does 2 not have the two lines yet?

    Phil

    Re: New movie sized ammo belt, FINISHED!!!!!! update 3/29

    There seems to be at least 2 ESB belts. Unless the one with the 4 stitches all around is a pre-pro. There are pictures over in the original thread.

    Ego,I too noticed the snap thing,and went back to photo's for a re-check.Indeed the snaps are not on the outside,but underneath to every ESB screencap,and promo pic that I've seen.An easy fix SC

    Not that I care a whole lot about this ESB thing of yours, but I'm a bit confused about this button thing .. pics could help hee..hee

    The snaps could be placed underneath the vinyl pouches, but since the leather is a little tougher than vinyl, the snap outline probably won't be seen. It would be like trying to cover it with cloth, as opposed to covering it with thick paper or cardboard.

    Well, wouldn't that work out for the EGOtistical types who might have put themselves down for a vinyl?

    Cheers Ego SC,I do agree 100% that putting a snap under vinyl would be impossible for it to look correct since the original was vinyl.
