Star Wars Han Solo Gun Belt

Added Jun 27, 2011

Pascagoula, Miss...






My sister wanted to do a Star Wars roleplay with me for her birthday this year, so I had to get together a semblance of a Han Solo costume. I wish I had had time to make a shirt and vest, but I only had time to slap together a gun belt. I used some brown pleather that I already had in my stash, and a piece of fun foam for the “clasp” in the front. I made up my own pattern, trying to get as close to the inspiration as possible. I used velcro for the belt closure, the leg strap, and on the straps on the gun holster. I put a pocket next to the clasp, and I also added a loop on the side of the belt to hold a lightsaber. I think overall it looks pretty good, and it’s super fun to wear. It instantly makes you feel like a space-pirate, haha. “Who’s scruffy looking?!”

Material Notes

Brown vinyl pleather, velcro, 1 sheet of grey fun foam, thread.

    Super cute and all… I’ll be using it for inspiration as I make mine. However, you do know that Han Solo never used a Light Saber, that’s a Jedi’s weapon. ;-)

      Oh yes, of course — but if Han Solo can be a girl with a pink gun, he can wield a lightsaber, right? ;) But technically, the Tauntaun in ESB would argue with you on that never-used-a-lightsaber thing! LOL!

    This is awesome! And not only would it be great for Star Wars sewing fans but anyone who is in to steam punk costuming.

    Great job! :)
