I finished my belt!
This is the buckle and strap end set I got from Armour & Castings last year, and the blue belt I bought last year at Gulf Wars. It took me THIS LONG to find the right size glass rhinestones to pop in there! I attached them with plain old superglue; and I attached the metal bits to the leather myself! Yay! (My second-ever attempt at "leather work").
Oh, and these:
A pair of small pins that I can use to keep my sleeves, tippets, and hoods secured. They're just two buttons with the shanks cut off, a little red glass rhinestone glued in the middle, and the bumps on the medallion design highlighted with bright red nail polish. I hot-glued pin backs to the back side of each one.
