Worbla Belt Buckle Tutorial by DragonLadyCels Worbla Belt Buckle Tutorial by DragonLadyCels
I finally got tired of trying to find buckles for my costumes, so using the same techniques I use for armor, I started making my own buckles!
This is a short little tutorial, so you can too. Since I know cosplayers often share the pain of not being able to find affordable, good looking, buckles.

That looks awesome! How functional do you find the prong is on the buckle? Do you have to be careful not to make it a real load-bearing buckle that holds pants up, or can it actually keep a belt in place if the belt has a hole for the prong?

The worbla is pretty durable a material for a thermal plastic. I've found it can bear most pleather-leathers pretty easily. For heavier duty materials/weight, I work a piece of 16 gauge galvanized steel into the foam under-structure, just to give it a little more durability.
