    That's doable for me!

    Check out the color chart and see what you think as far as color.

    Here's the link again: http://buttonsfromindia.com/braidedleathercord1.html

    Count me in ... so we would need about a dozen ppl or requests for this to work.

    Also, I seem to recall seeing a guy selling some of this stuff on e-bay a while ago... I asked him if he had any 6mm stuff.. and that was when he told me it came from India...and said might be getting some in the next few weeks.

    Tough to tell color..but .. the red brown?

    Yeah I'm seeing red-brown, granda, light-brown, and tan as possibles. I asked her for a better picture showing the brown colors better but she sent me the same one posted.

    Hard to tell.

    Here's the interest list so far. Let me know if you're wanting more material than shown:

    1. Cruzer (50 yrds)
    2. goldenrod (25 yrds)
    3. Jango Newbie (25 yrds)
    4 Kivas (25 yrds)

    Lord knows what color, on that chart there too small to tell for sure. What ever everyone else thinks is right is fine with me.

    Re: Whipped this up today finally!

    I'm in too. (25 yards)

    A few sugestions though:
    1) We might want to start a seperate intrest thread for this in the cargo hold. I think it will get more attention that way.
    2) We might want to go with a lighter brown (or plain). That way we can dye it to our own desired color.

    Re: Whipped this up today finally!

    SWFreak, that's a good point and I think that would be the safe route to go if we can't get upclose pics of the different brown colors and find one we all agree looks good. I emailed the sales rep, Satish, and asked for upclose pics that more clearly showed the shades of brown and got no reply. So, I then emailed her and asked her assuming up close pics are not available, could we go with the brown shown on the website 4 ply sample and asked if that would be the same cost, and I have yet to hear from her. So I'm just being patient...don't want to annoy the supplier.

    As far as another interest post your probably right but we only needed a couple more people interested so I hadn't worried about it. But I can post if you'd like.

    ****Just a note- I used approximately 23 yards for my 21 strand belt and I measure 38"-39" in my waist around my flightsuit and vest. I cut the strands into 41" long pieces giving me some room to trim the uneven ends. And after that I ended up having to cut another 2 inches off to make the belt snug when sinched up.

    1. Cruzer (50 yrds)
    2. goldenrod (25 yrds)
    3. Jango Newbie (25 yrds)
    4. Kivas (25 yrds)
    5. Predatormv (25 yrds)
    6. Dark-Side (25 yrds)
    7. SWFreak (25 yrds)

    Re: Whipped this up today finally!

    Naw, I took every strand all the way to the end and then used a lot of glue when I assembled the ends. I then took a 1/4" punch and pounded a hole right threw the tanned hide piece and strands. But I did try to locate the holes so they would only punch through one strand.

    Held up trooping yesterday at VCH like a champ.

    Look up goldenrod!

    Jango Newbie , the d-ring holder is attached to the braided belt with a snap just like the side holster staps are and then my codpiece is attached to the top part of the d-ring holder with chicago screws.

    Let me know if you need up close pics.

    Goldenrod, sorry man, DOH on my part!:o
    I thought you meant pics of the finished belt. Sorry for the brain fart and probably sounding like a jerk!

    Yeah, I've got a pic I can share from the event. Thanks for asking. We got a group shot with the kids, but I don't know if I can throw that up here since they're not my kids.

    So here's a shot of us in costume.

    I'm the wanna be Jango .

    One kid actually new exactly who I was cuz he said he liked to play Bounty Hunter on his Play Station. I should have given him my helmet or something. I'm wearing the Rubies here because I'm still working on my JD and BKBT helmets for WonderCon next weekend.

    Naw Jango Newbie, we adhered to Central California's 501st policy of no weapons for hospital visits. One kid even asked me where my guns were. I motioned to him that the nurses took them away from me.
