I was looking at your other post the other day and admire how detail-oriented you are!!! Can't wait to see the finished product it all looks so amazing!!!

Beneath those I'm willing to bet that the flat belt is more or less just a wide/thick elastic belt, one you might find at a craft store.

The belt below that, however, will be more difficult, unless you've got access to a laser cutter, which will make your life super duper simple. It reminds me though, of some of my grandma's old theatrical jewelry ... might be somewhere you may consider looking.
Yea, I've been looking in a LOT of antique shops.... But I was thinking of making it from sculpting clay or something, so it's nice to get some specific suggestions, thank you!! I think I may try that if I don't find anything similar.

Are you going to Dragon*Con? Or just Otakon?
