    Does anyone know of a cheap alternative to buying a stormtrooper holster? I wasn't sure of the materials. I know it doesn't necessarily have to be leather but does anyone have any suggestions on what material to use? Maybe pleather?

    I would use leather, because you want it to shape itself around the blaster for a snug fit. You also need to have the leather look inside the holster, which you don't get with pleather.

    Thanks. I should also mention It doesn't have to be completely screen accurate at this point. I just want something that looks close on the outside and does the job lol. I'll go for screen accurate later on. I can't afford to pay $40 or more for something this small that just holds a spray-painted hasbro toy gun lol. (Yeah, it's not 501st approved but like I said, not going for perfect and/or screen accuracy). I just need something to get by with. Thanks for the tip though, I do appreciate it

    Oh, Where would I be able to purchase just leather for making this or any material similar to it? Like a hobby store such as Hobby Lobby or Michael's or a different specialty store? Thanks!
