Duty Belt

Robb Allsopp, Key Principal Costumer for the Dredd movie, speaking at a discussion panel at the 2013 DragonCon Convention, stated that it was a personal goal of the costume department to "create" as much of the Judge Costume as they could from scratch (i.e. not buying found items off retail store shelves). He said the crew was very keen on making the Cosplay/Costuming community "work" for their replica Judge Costumes. This philosophy is extremely evident with the Duty Belt. All the pouches are hand crafted. All the zip-tie handcuffs are hand-made. The Flashbang spheres are hand-built. The Breach Mines and Gas Grenades were custom milled. Only the Boker Knife and the items INSIDE the Medi-pouch are store bought items. Everything else was custom-made for the production.

Note: The Duty Belt attaches to the costume via leather belt loops that are on the bottom of the Vest. It does not attach to the Leather Pants.

Flash Bang Spheres - on a budget


In a pinch... you can use Styrofoam or Wooden Balls purchased from a local arts and crafts store for your Dredd Flash Bangs.... Kelly Sunderland took a couple extra couple steps making his Flash Bangs when he cut his balls in half with a scroll saw, added a sheet of round plexiglass to the middle, and then sanded, painted, and buffed the spheres to a high shine.

Boker Knife

Boker Plus - Armed Forces Folder II. (Tanto blade)
Dark O.D. Green
The belt clip was moved to the opposite side, most likely to hide the Boker logo. (Thanks to Jimmy Burns for identifying the knife)
Store Bought item!!!! Make sure you buy the "TANTO" blade, not the "Spear Point" blade.

In promo photos and close ups in the movie, it looks like the knife is painted a light Olive Drab Green, but it is not, it is a dark OD green, it is the bright lights that make the color look lighter than it really is.

Be very careful if you buy the Boker II from Amazon. A few fans have posted in discussions that there are dealers that label the I as a II and sell it incorrectly. You want the 9+ inch II version, not the 6 inch I version.

Bottom of the Holster

The bottom has a squareish window cut out of it, to allow the barrel of the Lawgiver to safely protrude downward. Most likely this is for 'accidental discharging' reasons.
