Buckles for Han Solo ANH belt/holster?

#1 Post by AF79 » 29 Jan 2018, 00:42

Hi everyone.

I'm trying to put together a Han Solo ANH costume, but I've hit a snag. I have no idea where to get the belt buckles. It would be pretty cool to do the leatherwork, but I don't have access to a plasma cutter, 3D printer or machine workshop.

Do any of you know a place to get them? Preferably on a budget, but I would of course prioritize quality.

For a budget build, I guess the ebay one from China isn't to bad.

So I should buy that one and just use the buckles? Or are the leather parts reasonably made as well?

Toddscostumes.com used to offer a DIY Solo rig hardware kit. Check with him. Also, check out Etsy.

Minor plot holes and strange coincidences are no match for a good story by your side, kid.
