    Girth belt on a budget

    Hey all, due to wedding expenses im on a very tight budget, but very eager to finish my costume. I went to my local .99 cent store got me some clothes line and...well here it is, just a little brown leather paint and i should be good for now. comments, advise and opinions welcome.

    i would have to say that seems to be a workable option for the interim...at least you'd be dressed till you can upgrade down the road

    only thing i would say is it seems a bit wide...i know its 19 rows for the braided bolo one..

    its approx 5 in. wide. i read somewhere that each bolo braid is 1/4 of an inch, i dont know if its true, but that would be around 5 inches if its 19 rows. i didnt even bother to count how many rows i have on this one, but it'll do for now. thanx JD

    Yup, that's correct. 19 rows, 1/4 inch each. When you add in the spacing, it comes out to about 5 inches.

    Nice idea...since I am also making a Jingle-Jango (get it...a Jango from spare change)...I might have to take a look at this option.

    Hey, thats what I did! Not perminantly ofcourse, however it is still my set up, ha ha! I left a gap in the middle where the pouches cover up everything else. I could post a picture if you like, I don't want to hijack your thread though. Here's a link...
