Dragon*Con: Belt Back Plate

After putting the whole costume on, I wanted to make sure that I would be able to wear it without the robe. This meant covering up the ugly rear buckle of the belt. I had to cover about 12" of ugly, since the original narrow belt was somewhat lacking in length. It took me a while to figure out what would be both effective and attractive for this purpose. Finally I remembered that our old toaster oven had died a horrible stinky death a while back, and it had been sitting out on the back porch since. I harvested the stainless steel shell, cleaned it up, cut it down, and applied hammers and duct tape until it became what I needed. I think the final product is perfectly acceptable.
