Actually yes, the buckle DOES hold up the belt. It seems to go all the way around..It sits in top of the part with the fur. What I would do it make the fatter furred part separate then make the the actual belt. the extra flap on the belt looks like it sits under his bag so it is unseen giving the illusion of it just sitting there with nothing holding it.
