The base belt I got for $1 in the Salvation Army. The distressed fabric I used on the belt I found in JoAnn Fabrics over near the costume fabrics. The Walkman printout I found a few pieces at a time searching the internet for Walkman pics and printing them out until they were all appropriate size (and fortunately was able to find one with the Star Lord mix tape showing). I simplified the Star Lord belt a lot for this costume, but you can always get more detailed if you want. And as far as headphones, it’s probably easier to just purchase a pair. They sell them for $5 at different places on the internet, and as an added benefit, you’d also get the cord, so wouldn’t need a separate one. I just made mine because I didn’t want to have to wait for a pair to arrive.
