Leather weapon wrappings & Zips 2 Weeks, 4 Days ago Karma: 1  
I'm working on a crossbow for the next event and wondered if anyone could tell me where to get the "leather" material typically used for sword handle wrappings?

Also I've got a hip bag to hold my bolts in. It has a zip on it as well as buckles - I assume I should remove the zip and replace it with a more appropriate fastening?

The bag with the zip. It depends how in-character it looks. Maybe you could just get away with making the zip black so it merges with the bag (assuming the bag is black).

As for leather wrapping for the crossbow. If you mean some leather to glue/wrap around a crossbow-like thing to make it look more in character what about something like cut up strips of chamois leather? If you want black then just look on ebay for strips of soft black leather around 0.5 mm.
You could also spray paint it and use some craft like skills to shade it.
