Shoulder Holster Question

I have a need for a specific kind of shoulder holster and was hoping you guys could help.

First off let me tell you what I'm looking for: a shoulder rig for 2 government model .45 1911s.

Now let me explain to you how I got here. Me and my girlfriend are going to enter a costume contest for Halloween and suffice to say we can win a good amount of money if we win. The rules say you have to be a historical person or couple. As I am writing a senior dissertation on John Dillinger he seemed the obvious choice (my girlfriend is going as Mary Evelyn "Billie" Frechette; Dillinger's longtime girlfriend).

Through all my research I know that Dillinger almost always caried two .45s in a crossdraw shoulder holster that was made of leather. But my problem is I have no idea how to wear a shoulder rig (the right way) or even where to start looking for one (that I can get before the the 31st). I can use cheap airsoft 1911s to fill it but I really need help here cause frankly I have no idea what I'm doing.

Thanks in advance.

Those are nice but I would prefer not to spend more then $40-50ish dollars if I can help it. And I still need a video or something to help me learn how to properly wear one.

Highly unlikely you'll find any in leather in that price range for two reasons...
1)Twins are VERY RARE because hardly anyone uses them... 2) The chances of finding an old beat-up used leather set that someone is selling that cheap NOW is very slim.

Maybe look on big market boards such as gunbroker.com... amazon... e-bay... ?

Maybe check out costume and prop houses... The people who rent to stage and movie productions... depends on how much research/googling you want to do...

Check out the middle of this page... (Ya' get what ya' pay for...)

Think anyone would know the difference if I used a nylon holster?

Can anyone offer me advice on how to fit it and wear it properly? A video or something would be ideal.
