Obi Wan Kenobi Belt - Mythos Statue


Write Review

£175.00

When I first contacted Cosmic Workshop I was thinking of seeing if they could make a few modifications to their Episode IV belt. After talking with them, they had the better idea to just put together something from scratch instead of trying to modify something else. I had never ordered anything custom like that before, so I was a bit nervous. While I knew that a lot of their items resulted from extensive study, I was concerned that the few images that existed from the statue might not be enough.

I was extremely pleased to find out that I had no reason to be nervous about it. They kept in touch throughout the process and provided updates as the project progressed. They were able to reference the statue better than I could have imagined. While I was hoping for something that looked similar, I was blown away by what they delivered. The belt was nothing like any other stiff leather I'd have expected and wore like broken-in leather. Even with the covertec clip and the saber attached, the leather still didn't budge a bit under the weight despite feeling broken-in. The pouches were constructed to open and close by incorporated magnets. For as easy as it is for the pouches to open, they don't really budge unless you want them to. When I finally sat down to look at the belt in comparison to the reference images I'd seen before, I was surprised at the level of detail that went into this, even down to similar wear-marks on the leather and matching the "damaged" portions exactly to what the reference showed. Like any other props, this would be subjected to a bit of wear-and-tear with use. With an investment like this I'd normally be worried about that, but with the dye combination, the plating on the buckle, and the type of leather used, I can't help but think that normal wear-and-tear over time will only make this belt look more accurate, if that's even possible. I have definitely got these guys in mind as I work on putting further touches on this costume.

In retrospect, I'd have to say that this belt is perfect for Old Ben or as a good accent for any other Jedi-in-hiding throughout the galaxy. You definitely will not be disappointed!
