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:

the binder with the metal bit removed

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!
