I am (hopefully) soon to be a 501st member as Darth Nihilus. I should have everything completed/mailed within the next few weeks. The one piece I am not fully equipped to do myself is the belt (the one over the Obi), so I started searching around the net to see if I could find one for purchase. I found a few on Etsy, but before getting one, I wanted to check to see if the one I am thinking about is acceptable for the 501st. Here is the URL to the listing if it helps (not much info): https://www.etsy.com/listing/236554407/darth-nihilis-sith-belt?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=darth%20nihilus&ref=sr_gallery_28
I asked the person about the size and how it snaps close and this is what they had to say. The thing that worries me is that on the 501st site it states the width needs to be roughly 1.9" and as you will see, this person is doing just 1.5" so slightly smaller.
Belt measures 1.5" wide with a .5" center strap. Connects by overlapping and stuck through a belt loop or 2 holes can be punched and connected with the button studs.
Does this work for the 501st? If not, anyone know of anywhere I can get one that is accepted?
