    I don't think we've hit critical mass as yet.. by last count we had 200 yards .. where 300 is to be ordered minimum according to Cruzer

    Katua Fett -got ya.

    Hey guys,

    Didn't drop the ball on this bolo thing. Just have been patient and given the poor lady over in India a little time to reply to emails from a raving-mad obsessive Jango Fett costuming lunatic (ME! and probably some of you guys too ). I think there may a slight language barrier going on between us, but I've gathered she can't send me any better photos depicting the variations in brown hue colors...

    So, I think we should go with SWFreak's suggestion and go with the brown show on the close-up pic on the website(which she informed me it was 6MM or 1/4" bolo) and leave it up to everyone to stain their own to their tastes. She said the price would be the same if we choose to go with the brown show on the website.

    I'll post an interest thread in the Jango forum.

    Here's the updated list so far:

    UPDATED:

    Here's the interest list so far. Let me know if you're wanting more material than shown. We need to reach 300 yards to place this order. Once it's placed, it will take 2 weeks to receive it.

    ****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 to give me excess 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.

    ***I've got 21 strands on my belt that gave me 5 1/4" so plan for more strands if you want wider.

    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)

    After reading about your buying the braided leather/bolo from someone in India, that's left me extremely puzzled. Don't they worship cows there? You'd think that if it's an Indian lady, she's gonna go straight to cow hell or whatever if she's dealing in leather from cattle...

    That order was done and filled a long time ago. Don't know if Cruzer has any left or not. Thread was brought back because someone inquired about how the girth belt was made.

    I highly recommend leather Guy's braid and service, one of the fastest orders I have ever received from across the pond. Excellent service, product and price.

    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.

    I'd hold off on buying any leather cord from Leather Man until he can work out the quality discrepancies I found in the cord I ordered from him.
