I used 4 strands of regular white thread folded over to give the stitches that 'thick' look. They're each 1/2 inch long and 1/2 inch apart to give it that animation appearance. I put a lock stitch on the inside of the pants after every three stitches. That way, if one comes undone, they won't all destroy themselves. Of course, I'm stupid, and did every one by hand, so.....
I got my black belt from Rite Aid for about $10. In fact, I need to get another one, because I've worn the fake leather off the front of this one in flakes, so it looks all rough and nasty. It's a great belt, though. It holds up my pants, and I can hook my wallet to it without worry. Yes, I actually do carry a wallet on a chain in my back pocket, because Cyclist. And Because Big City.
