Belts, belts, and more belts!

Hey everybody, I had a question in regards to belts:

I'm wanting to make the uniform from Attack on Titan, but I've hit a snag. I need several belts to make the harness shown in the picture, but I always run into two problems:

1) I shop around and can't seem to find several belts of the same style.
2) Buying several belts (even at places like Goodwill) is not cost-effective.

So my question is this: Is there a place where I can buy cheap, low quality belts in bulk?

This isn't the first time I've needed a large quantity of belts for a costume, and I'm sure it won't be the last (I'm sure you FF cosplayers can identify with that xD), so if there's some surplus store out there selling these things cheap, it'd be a godsend for cosplayers everywhere!

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Beltssss. I ran into this same kind of problem doing my Brienne of Tarth costume. I would say that you should take a look at Tandy Leather's website. You can buy belts of many siZes and colors without buckles really cheaply. You could pick up the buckles on sale or with a coupon At Joanns. Since your belts are relatively thin this might work for ya. The other option would be to make them by covering strips of craft foam in stretch pleather, which is actually what I'm doing.
