Holster work and questions.
« on: Aug 08, 2020, 09:29 PM »
So i spent yesterday patterning out my holster using some extra craft foam i had. I plan to make my holster out of leather and am working on.




would buckles like these be approvable? for the waist section?





also as and alternative what about this buckle?



there are buckles i have on hand currently. i plan to also make a belt to go with. and a small leg strap to keep the holster in place. the whole piece will be dyed black. to fit in with my mandop's colors.

I don't see anything wrong with using those buckles.

The buckles would have to look like metal (if they are metal, sand off some of the paint), otherwise they'll be allowed.

In my aesthetic opinion, the holster could use a little curve when you pattern it onto leather. Quick drawing below is a suggestion of what I mean:

yea all the buckles are actually metal buckles not just painted plastic. the fidlock V buckles (ones that are silver and black) are even magnetic.







saddly i didnt see your post and that small hump is good. i can always remake the holster in the future though.
