Hello everyone,

I am contemplating starting a "The Force Awakens" Han Solo costume, and it has been very helpful following the various threads and comments about the different components. I've managed to acquire a set of Magnoli Brown Falcon boots, and so I'm off and running.

On Etsy, I located this as a possible belt/blaster rig, and it seems compelling:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/260751711/han-solo-costume-belt

It seems to fit the belt/blaster rig components unique to what Solo wears in "The Force Awakens," specifically the unique thigh strap, missing blaster retention strap and droid caller, and shifted belt part pouch. It seems like this is very close to what the costume standard requires.

I would be grateful for a look before I proceed, and as always, feel free to move/delete the thread if this is not the appropriate place.

MTFBWY,

Brad

I ended up purchasing this. The pouch to the wearer's left seemed to be a velcro "square" closure instead of a snap, but the maker was very good about making this change. It's a great belt, and now Solo-TFA occasionally makes appearances with Endor Base! Thanks. = B
