Belt of Deltora






Here is a closer look at the 'Belt Of Deltora'. I bought it years ago from a vintage shop. It is covered with multi-coloured rhinestones, the band is woven from silvered thread, with a filigree prong set buckle. It is stamped 340, Czechoslovakia.

At the time Kade and Mr T had been reading the Deltora Quest books. As soon as I brought it home, Kade proclaimed it as his own and it has been hanging on his clothes rack ever since. Now he has a chance to actually wear it.

Thanks for the positive affirmation of the costumes in the last post. I love Bron's comments about India's bow and every time I see the photos they crack me up.

See ya, T x

Well... it's even better close up, no wonder Kade ran off with it. Tell him l challenge him to a duel for it. Glad you got a giggle out of my bow comment, and of course India will have orange hairspray....how fitting.Thanks too for the link Tam.
