I have a friend who is trying to make a lando costume, and we are trying to figure out this belt specifically.

http://kobe.typepad.com/.a/6a01287737911e970c0134853539b0970c-800wi

I'd love it if I could get some tips/help from you guys and gals

Thanks in advance

Looks like it could be out of leather. Good luck

there are some really convincing leather-look fabrics. you can get one thats basically a fleece backing with a 'pleather' coating on one side. thats what I would use. it goes through the sewing machine like regular fabric.

I'm not sure how you'd reproduce the tooled design on that front piece with faux leather, though.

I'm a proponent of real leather, myself.

It shouldn't be too difficult to add those lines by wetting the front piece of leather and using a ruler a tool like this:

Then just wait for the piece to dry, dye it and glue that piece onto the front of the belt. The belt would close in the back, where it's not seen, so it doesn't matter if you wanted to use snaps or Velcro to close it with.

That's how I would do it.
