Steampunk belt with holster, pirate version by akinra-workshop Steampunk belt with holster, pirate version by akinra-workshop
Here it comes, a belt with a holster for your steampunk LARP.
The holster can be put out and replace with an other : this one is made for a pirate pistol, an other will be made for a maverick.

Embossed by hand with gears and other things. I make a dart holder that could countain 12 darts.

I use the "god hand" pattern for western gun as a basis.

This belt is fantastic. The artful designs featured upon it showcases the true craftsmanship of your ingeniusing mind. What is cool is the fact that the bullets holsters aren't cluttered directly next to the pistol holster. If they were, such would cause for them to be unknowningly removed when reaching for the gun rapidly. Mindfully, they are placed slightly behind where the pistol dwells, yet not too far back where they would cause an issue to reach them. The little old fashioned designs on the belt are done in a sort of neo-retro appeal. Offering a touch of the old with slight stylings that are new. Any pirate fan would adore such a piece. Certainly, if it worked as an actual belt to keep pants from falling, I would purchase one. Especially with the detachable/removable pistol holster. And, it would draw in positive attention as part of a costume, too. Great work.

I like the overall look, and the color job. the only concern I have is the rivets, and their longevity as a structural hold. As long as they're the solid brass double cap rivets, or the brass plated tubular rivets, they should be good for a very long time. If they're the brass plated rivets, I'd try not to put too much stress on them, and maybe consider another rivet type, or sewing in addition to riveting, or maybe some barge glue in addition to the rivets.

I only use brass tubular rivet, here blackened. I use them because they didn't rust and last long. Well, as long as I use them. I'm been working with leather as a professionnal since two years, but I craft from a very longer time. After 6 years of work, I haven't, even one, lost a rivet, unless it was a mistake.

Thanks you for your critic, that's very helpful!

No problem :3 I actually work at a leather store, so I get a good idea of how stuff holds up from customers, along with personal experience.
