So, using paper, he created a pattern using some reference photos that we took during the Star Wars exhibit.
- Cutting the leather to the pattern.
- Getting the leather wet and molding it around to the appropriate shape. A lot of binder clips and spring clamps were used to help keep it in shape.
- Once the leather dried to the correct shape, it was stitched together and conditioned.
- The pieces were individually dyed and then put together.
He dye'd the leather match the existing belt color. It looks red in this photo, but it's really a dark dark brown.
Here's the final blaster holster as well as the leg attachment.
