Title: Girth Belt Question
Post by: Rhyen Skytracker on Jan 25, 2010, 07:27 PM
Ok, try not to laugh too hard at this question.  Would a girth belt from a horse work as a Mando girth belt?

Won't laugh a bit.   ;D

That's actually what was used for the original Fett costume.

Yup, it's a Mohair girthbelt for a Horse. We used to have a link up somewhere to get them from www.horselovers.com. The same type used for Boba Fett. However, last time I checked, they'd discontinued them. My brother did find one on ebay though.

I found a used one on ebay that looks very weathered already for $22.50.  Should I get it?

I think I may get the one Ha'sid linked.  What size do I need?  I am a pretty big boy.  LOL

Your waist size or smaller. Depends if you're going to dye it or not I think. Dyeing usually shrinks it a bit unless you're careful.

Either way, you'll have to add some straps to join the ends anyway, so a bit smaller than your waist is good, just as long as it covers around your front & sides.
