    I've done a little bit of leather work in the past, and its really not hard. the best thing to do it mock it up with paper first, figure out how much leather to get from Tandy leather. the hardest part is finding all of the metal parts and connect it together! definitely a project though... here is a good reference page to get you started: Rebel Legion :: View topic - Han Solo belt build-WIP

    and I came across this too for the under belt... if you care...: Han Solo Costume Leather Belt

    shoot me a PM sometime if you are going to go for it and you want some help!

    I did exactly what JimmyC said. I made the main belt and mocked up the holster part in paper. I bought all of the tools I needed, leather, dye, and hardware for a fraction of what a premade one would cost. I had some aluminum stock laying around and cut out my own buckles and connectors, just took some dremmel-fu and a patience. I probably still have the templates i made for the metal bits if you want a copy.
