hallo,
i am asking in behalf of my wife.
We are just starting next to another costume project with a Lea.
1)How high/wide the belt should be? For example jedibelts are usually 5cm or 7cm high/wide.
2) Should the leather be shiny/polished style or more soft
/mattfinished.

THANK YOU for any help in advance!

Definitely matte- finished for the belt Smile

I cannot remember my belt's exact measurements but I will be happy to measure it for you. It should be a few inches high though. I'll check the reference sites and see if anyone has the exact height.

I agree with Liz that matte finish is best.

As to measurements, my belt is 3" (7.6 cm) in the front center at the widest part, and narrows down to 2" (5.1 cm) around the side and in the back.

Just measured mine: 2 and 3/4 Smile So I'd say anywhere in the range of 2.75-3 inches should be good.
