    Thanks Skalen Fehl!

    I'm normally a 31/32 waist, but I'll take the "suit bulk" into consideration.

    Also, keep in mind you might be overlapping the belt in the back which would add about two inches, depending on how you are building it.

    I ordered a 25yd roll. I got it in 4 days. Very nice. Now I gotta figure out how to build it. So many choices.

    I cut about 24 lengths of the braid and took it to my leatherworker. I think he ended up using only about 20 or 21. I fashioned a loop out of a 1 1/2 inch pvc pipe, cut in half with the radial curves angled downward and glued the thing to a piece of sintra angled just like the reference CD and took it to my leatherworker as well for the center strap with D rings. I had him chicago screw the braided belt to the JD codpiece and it's almost all done. He just needs to attach straps to the holsters. Man he's done an amazing job. I printed about fifteen reference pics from the CD for him to refer to. I can't wait to put the belts on. He says this has been a most interesting project for him. He is so used to building horse saddles and other "normal" leather products.

    My leather belts and holsters should be done Wednesday. I'll try to have pics up by this weekend. I actually am so close I want to wait until it's all done to unveil my year-and-then-some long effort costume.

    Besides that, I have yet to see it all together at one time on me. Right now there are pieces everywhere.

    Roger that sir.


    Here are a couple of my WIP pics. Those are slotted brass plates. I am currently just winding the whole thing back and forth and tying it off at each turn. I was going to cut the strands individually but I didn't want to deal with it unravelling. I know I could dip the ends in something but I'm going to be lazy and try this first. I will sew all the ends and run some heavy brown nylon thread through all of the strands every 6 inches or so to keep it together. If all goes well I won't need to add the heavy leather backing to it.

    I already bought a cow shoulder that was just long enough and about 6.5" wide throughout just in case I have to go that route.

    I'll post when it's done, and we'll see what I end up doin by then.

    Wish me luck.

    Here's my finished belt. I ran nylon thread through the entire braid every 3 inches. This keeps them all together without the need for a leather backing. For weathering, I will run over the whole thing with some heavy grit sandpaper as soon as I get some.

    Nice job, bud! Boy I bet that mjtrim website wondered what all the hub-bub was about with a surge of orders for that style of braid. LOL. I'll post some pics of my belts tomorrow. Got a ton of stuff to do to get ready for CIII. Ugh...

    I don't know if I missed it in some thread, but can anybody tell me how many breads the original Jango belt has? It's hard to count, because in all pics I have there's always the belt, the pouches or something covering it partially, so I can't be sure.

    By the way, is it still possible to get that Jango Referance CD somewhere? I really could need some accurate material from head to toe. I read a couple of times about it and noticed the offered Boba and Trooper CDs on TDH, but no Jango.

    Wasp, I can make a copy for you. I can't remember who I originally got mine from, but you can send me a self addressed stamped envelope I can get you one. Include a blank CDR or RW. I'll pm you with my address.

    I'll be taking pictures of my belt this weekend to share. Sorry taking so long obi_sean_kenobi.

    Just 2 questions:

    Is the 6mm red brown good choice?

    How many "rows" of braiding is there on Jangos girth belt?

    I think the red brown is what I used. I believe mine has twenty one rows but I was looking more at the belt being between 5 and 5 1/2 inches wide. I gotta get my costume out of the bin and on a mannequin!
