    Cool, always looking for tutorials on Star-Lord stuff. Just a quick observation though.

    Your holster shape is a little squared off. Could use some adjustment. The real thing is very tapered.

    Check out this post for the template. This is the left side, I think. And this particular page has lots of holster info as well. Including how to source the clips for the blasters.

    This topic is a giant thread full of details about Star-Lord costume. I recommend checking it out before getting too far along.

    Thanks for the suggestion ! But I sized it according to the star lord nerf gun , was gonna make it taperd but didn't Think it would look good with the gun having such a wide frame on it .

    It will look great tapered. Check the "official Star Lord" thread. There is a template on there.

    The actual blasters used in the movie were quite large--bigger than the Nerf guns.

    I used that template and the Nerf guns myself.

    The proportions end up looking just fine. Even on someone as short as 5 1/2 feet.

    Yeah, sure.

    I made this rig for a convention that was upcoming last OCT. Had to make it fast, so it's nowhere near "accurate", but you can get an idea of the holster/gun size relation.

    When I wear it the end of the blaster is 2-3 inches above the knee.

    You can check out the first page of that topic I linked to for lots of reference pictures to see how your proportions stack up to the movie outfit.
