I used the same paint technique as I did on the armor for the belt and gauntlets, basically light washes of brown-black, turquoise and a tan-turquoise highlight / wear pattern color, hitting the indentations or depressions with the darker colors and the lighter colors where wear would occur.

Here's the belt with the dark applied in half of the picture:

Gauntlets while I was painting them:

After painting:

Of course most of the top will be hidden by the forearm armor, but oh well.

Unfortunately discovered the teal belt greeblies were a bit small for the belt so will have to redo those, but better that than the horrifying amount of sewing to redo the belt.

Made some progress on the holster today. I used vinyl:

And foam:

I used barge cement to glue the vinyl to the foam, then sewed over them both:

I am waiting for Chicago screws to arrive to finish getting the strap and the holder part of the holster installed. But, considering it's some vinyl and foam, I'm pretty happy with it so far:

Finished up the holster. Inserted Chicago screws and magnets and barge glued the holder part of the holster together.

The back is pretty messy but no one will be looking at that:

The front looks pretty decent for foam and vinyl:

I scratched up the Chicago screws a bit as they looked way too shiny:

Because the vendor making the replica fabric has been not producing due to the pandemic, I decided to see what I could do with a Cricut and heat transfer vinyl.


I purchased the vector file on Etsy, and spent approximately 3000 hours weeding. I will try transferring it to some scuba fabric tomorrow to see how it looks. Hopefully I will discover ways to be more efficient at weeding.

So this is super tedious but I think it is going to work!

Here is the HTV on scuba fabric. I need to pick out the random cat hair. LOL
