    Take a real egg. Paint dots on it. Smash it on your belt.

    There's some stuff about belt buckles on Instructables, this one looks pretty promising:
    http://www.instructables.com/id/Custom_Belt_Buckle/
    It uses a printout / image on paper, with a clear plastic resin over the top. There's a better picture of the result of this technique here (4th and 5th image down). I'm not sure how much the resin costs, and it looks like you need to be careful to seal the paper first so the resin doesn't make the ink run.

    Or you could probably make the egg out of Polymer Clay then glue it onto a belt. It's a plastic/clay hybrid that comes in many colours, it's cheap, you just cook it in the oven for 20 mins then let it cool to set. You could make it out of white clay then paint the green with acrylic paints, or use 2 colours of clay which will give a smoother finish but careful to do the light parts first because if you've got green on your hands it'll rub off into the white!

    If he smashes it on his belt, what good will that do?

    Use tape and smash in into people is a better idea.
