Look on ebay for the spur straps and tie. The Straps should be the one piece type with no buckles. This was the norm back in the day. The tie is what is known as a "puff tie". You will need a pin to hold it correctly. I've used a larg earring before, but recently purchased a cravat pin to do the job, also from ebay.

I have not found a badge that is a movie replica so if you do, please post a link.

The Holliday cup is also an ellusive thing. Ive seen plenty of tin cups that look similar but have no handle. Maybe we can all decide on a way to replicate that tool.

the spur straps should be easy to make, I believe when he "cut" Ike, you can see buckels.

If you look, you will see there are no buckles, but there is a concho. Back then the straps were mostly made of one piece of leather with no fastener or buckle. One simply used the correct hole for sizing. This way if the strap failed, the cowboy could make another very easily.

There is a set on ebay that shows how they looked:

Or look at mine (minus the concho):

I stand corrected, there is a buckle on Wyatt's spurs...his were kind of a mix of the two types. Here a couple of shots:

Can someone post a good screencap of Wyatt's belt holster/rig?

Funky: I'll look into it tonight. He wore a couple of different rigs in the movie. At first it was a single holster on the right side with the 10" Buntline. Later he wore two belts like Curley Bill with two right handed holsters, with one on the left side. this way he always used his right arm but had two available weapons, drawing the left one with his right hand. The one on the left faced backward, like a crossdraw, but hanging straight down. You can see him holster the Buntline in the left holster after Ringo and Doc's showdown.
