T- It all amounts to what kind of belt you are trying to reproduce. For text, I would pay attention to the different type face in the books you like. Think about the shape of letters as an aesthetic to base your own text around. It's tough to put into words because it's basically all I do now I guess. It's a mechaincal instinct at this point. I mean, think about it, It's been over twenty years and I've made hundreds of these things.
Stay motivated T-Bone and you'll do fine.
Ken C- ha ha! I'm so sorry to hear about that man. That's why I would't let my friends look at my belts, or even let them in my belt room. That is, I wouldn't if I had the time to have friends. As it stands, I'm far too busy maintaining the belt room and the belts themselves for any relationships platonic or otherwise.

So to answer your other question, I haven't really watched any WWE or any other wrestling promotions since Bischoff's departure as Raw GM. I'm mainly interested in maintaining and updating my belt collection. Sometimes I can spend 24 hours straight in that room...taking things off one wall, putting them on another, and eventually putting it back in the same place. For Easter my mother bought me a suit cut by Biscoff's actual tailor, a replica of the one worn by Bischoff on his first Raw appearance. I look forward to wearing it as I catalogue my belt collection.
Also, did I mention that in the early 90s, as rap music was starting to assert it's identity in the pop music landscape, I designed a spinner style belt exactly in the style that is currently worn by current champ John Cena? Well, I did and I can't talk much about it now but I will embark on a lawsuit in the very near future to halt the use of the spinner belt until I'm rightly compensated financially. It's a lot of work putting a major lawsuit together. Unfortunately, this will take me away from the wrestling message boards and the Eric Bischoff yahoo group I started, hence the late replies to your questions. But again, good luck on your endeavors. Perhaps find a good photo of the hardcore title, show it to an art teacher or someone in your school that works with crafts, those people tend be very good with what materials are good for constructing objects such as this.

Just because I know you'll Laugh, I was doing this trick and I decided to not put on shoes. Well my lawn guys haven't come yet so my lawn wasn't mowed, So as I'm getting the belt to take inside and clean, I step on a wasp hive and 3 wasps STING me right between my toes, so I am in agony but my belt looks great
