Hi guys, I speak in name of my father, that would be a member of the legion with Han Solo episode 7...for now we have nothing, just because we don't want to spend unnecessary money, but first hear who have already done Han Solo TFA and has been approved, to direct us where to buy dress and accessories. Ok these are the things we need:

-blaster dl-44
-full belt
-accessories of the jacket (i don't know what they are)

in the meantime I went to see something online and I wanted to ask you if the things I found were good or not:
pants (but they don t inspire me a lot..):
blaster bl-44 ( if you have a cheap alternative approvable, tell me)
for the belt i really don't know where i can find one... the same, for the boots that will be the same color of the belt... please help me! and thanks to all!

Hmmm, yeah, so this is kind of a tough one. First off, there are a number of inaccuracies with the jacket you've linked: It's missing the yoke on the back, it has a single seam down the center of the back, as opposed to the two seams out towards the sides. The pockets are not correct sizes in some cases, the closures on the front, near the bottom of the front flap are incorrect.

For the shirt, I'm not sure I would trust that, as the image they've provided is actually lifted off Magnoli's site, so I'm not even sure that's the actual shirt you would receive...

Han's pants are somewhat distinctive in that they have fairly wide belt loops-2" to 2 1/2" wide probably. You'd have to add those. You could conceivably cut the material from the ends of the leg, since the pants tuck into the boots anyway, and make wider loops from that and add them on. You'd also have to sew the pin tuck detail down the front of each leg. The pockets are a problem also, as Han's pants don't have pockets.

The doopydoos blaster should be fine.

The belt is going to be a real challenge. I don't know of anyone commercially who is making an accurate TFA gun belt yet. You'd really have to have this custom made.

Good luck with your build, keep posting here if you have any other questions we can help you with!!
