Tomb Raider Legend Tokyo Dress Belt Holsters Tutorial

Reference Pictures

Materials needed:

  • Pleather
  • Sewing kit
  • Modeling Clay
  • Glue
  • Silver Spraypaint
  • Velcro

1 – Start by measuring around your waist (make sure it’s enough to go all the way around you and half way again), your thigh and the distance on your side between them, Let’s call them the connectors

2 – Cut 5 pieces out of the pleather, 3.5 inches in width, and the length would be your own measurements.

3 – Sew up the sides to give it a nice finish, when you fold the pleather, you want to go in  1 inch on both sides, this diagram shows how it’s folded.

Diagram 1

You will end up with this for the main belt and the thigh straps, and make the connectors about half an inch thinner.

These are all the pieces finished and ready to be sewn together.

4- you can now put your belt together , here is a diagram to show you how, corresponding pieces should help you out.

Obviously you need velcro to go on your main belt, and thigh straps, too, for easy wear and removal,  i sewed it on for a nice securing and it wont pull off when you wear the belt multiple times

5 – Out of FIMO i made my buckle, and 8 Decorative studs , baked them for 30 mins ,  waited for them to cool , and spray painted them silver like so:

Here is a rough refrence for the buckle:

Don’t forget to color in the decorative studs, they have a black centre
