Custom Belt Buckles and Belt tips?

Anyone know any sites or propmakers where I can get a certain shape belt buckle and belt tip? I'm cosplaying as Kingdom Hearts 2 Sora this summer and I'm stuck on his belt...

I replied to you on the KH forum but I can reply here too. You aren't going to find them. I've looked everywhere. You MIGHT find the belt tip but it might cost a lot because the only ones I can find come in a set of custom buckles and whatnot. You can use sculpy though. Cooked right, you will have amazing sturdy parts. You can make the entire buckle out of the stuff, but make the middle bar thicker then normal so it stays together better. or even better, you can buy a regular buckle abd cover the outside part (not the center area) and just shape it like you want. The reason I say cover the whole outside is because when painted it will be different colors if you don't. Then you can just make the tip out of the clay and attach it.

You know what would be really cool for this kind of stuff ? 3D printers.

Although that belt buckle and all looks plain enough that you could just mod one or possibly even find a "close enough" one. Covering a regular buckle of the right size is probably your best bet if you're picky (I'm going to probably have to do the same thing for the costume I'm making, so I understand).
