Thanks!
I received the elastic band today so hoping the snaps gets here next week.
Meanwhile, another picture when I tried on the costume with the (unfinished) belt.
But I realised that the belt is too thin, is there anything you guys got inside the belt that gives a thicker and steadier belt?
I read some guides that they use quite wide elastic band inside of them tho.
Thinking of glueing on some elastic on the shoulder bells tonight :D

Oh forgot, I painted the screws on the helmet with my matte black color, it turned out good so I'll go with it.

And today I ordered a Holster which is required for Shadow Stormtrooper.
Because I got no experience sewing on leather, I think it's for the better to buy a complete one.
I picked ESB version since it's all black, which I need and seems to be a better solution to have it looped on the belt rather than rivert it on.
And I want a pauldron but I'll get one later since I'm not prioritising that at the moment.

If it don't get approved, I'll have to redo them of course.

I ordered a tube for the Thermal Detonator so fingers crossed it'll fit my end caps.
And since it's already black, I won't need to paint it.
