Thanks very much for the help! The link is especially helpful.
I'd actually like to do as much of the work on the Vortex Manipulator as I can. My brother bought a used leather coat to make some leather pouches and he has some of the material left over. I've been drafting my own pattern from reference pictures and it seems to be going well so far. I've tried looking for the toy version online before, but I don't know if it will fit properly, plus if I can make it myself from real leather, then I'd like to try to make it look authentic. I still need to figure out how to make the center piece, but I just bought some blue LED lights online today, so I intend to have it light up. Once I've worked on it a bit more, I'll put up some pictures
