    Depending on the length of your outer tunic, you could use khaki pans (where the outer tunic covers the pockets), or you could use karate gi (which are very light and plain pants with no pockets) and dye them.

    If worse comes to worse, lightwieght karate pants work well. For the inner 'shirt' you could go with a turtle neck or V-neck shirt, if you want to work on a serious budget or you don't know how to sew. As for a belt, I've found that the strap for a shoulder mounted pistol sling works very well.

    Belt and boots are some of the hardest parts of the costume. A proper belt should be about 3 inches wide, and that's no easy thing to find.

    However, you could go with the idea of useing a normal size belt and just put it though something, like in this picture:

    A good place to find a belt is on ebay or a local saddlery shop.

    For my obi I used some vinyl that's cut about 4" wide, then wear the strap that I mentioned above over that. I think it looks pretty decent.
