looking to cosplay Asuka from Tekken

going for a crossplay, and I really REALLY want to cosplay Asuka from Tekken 7. Im going off her new look in fated retribution, but I need a little help.

She has these new clothes, and the shorts seem to be the strangest part to work with. They have these brown belts with buckles as suspenders, and for the life of me i cant find anything close to it with a buckle

Since Im a sucker for detail, I wondered if anyone had seen anything similar?

They look the same as the child sized belts I bought for Cloud's KH1 outfit:
They are around the calves and around one thigh.
I bought them at walmart.
Anyway, you might be able to use those but IDK. Another idea is to still use them, but ONLY the buckles. Buy them and cut the buckles out (I've never seen buckles that look like that, that are that small, not already attached to belts that were worth the price, these are like $2 each..). Then buy some vinyl from the fabric store in the right color and sew the buckle on and make them like this:
You would sew the far left end and the far right end onto the waist line of the shorts, then buckle them together like belts.

You could probably make them pretty easy; buy belt blanks or purse strapping (look in fabric shops, tandy leather/leatherworking shops, they sell it by the yard if they have it), or brown upholstery vinyl cut into the belt shape/length if you can't find belt blanks, and then you can add the buckles yourself. I can't get a good look at the buckles but either a fabric/craft store or, again, tandy leather (online or store), ought to have something that'll work. They don't look too complex so you should certainly be able to find them in a regular sewing store.
