Start out with good sturdy short shorts that will be able to handle the acrylic.  Mark where you want the belt to be and draw markers for the holsters, apply solid acrylic paint , then add detail.
It may look hard but if you follow the exact reference pictures, you should be fine

Next you have to make your holsters, I made mine out of card board and covered it in black craft foam, (make yours big enough to house your pistols) then hot glued it all together, I decided to put the Velcro directly on the pants themselves. Make sure the holsters match the colors of the belt portions
