The Belt:



I started by measuring my waist, and creating a belt out of the Nylon Straps, and then added Velcro and the decorative loops to it



Then measure my thigh straps out of the same Nylon Strap, and made sure I measure the same length of leather for the second layer of the thigh straps and attached the release buckles like so:


Next I measured and cut 2 pieces of  nylon straps for the distance between my waist belt and the thigh belts and then I added

Then on the right side, you have to add one small pouch:


Then attached a carabineer keyring to the same right side:


I also made a buckle out of FIMO and glued it on to the main belt, it has no functionality, it's just on the opposite side of the Velcro, it will look like it's a real buckle


Then added the ammo pouches on the left side, like so, I used some pleather to make them but i recommend using pouches like this one:



Next are the holsters:


The Holsters:

I made it from a binder if you can believe it, look:

cut it down to size

here I'm starting to cover it with duct tape

Cut the duct tape from the edges so you get  a black outline and you're all done


And this is what it looks like on me:



All done!
