Here’s a video tutorial made by David Guyton on how to make a #Marvel #Infinity gauntlet. This is a more advanced type of #costume making as it involves working with metal and electronics. Please be sure you wear the proper protective gear before working with metal (which can have very sharp edges) and hammers.
This particular gauntlet design also includes use of a leather glove, upon which metal is riveted. There are also a lot of small articulated parts that go onto the glove fingers. Thus, patience is a must with this particular project.
Wonder what goes into making an advanced, armored gauntlet for a #costume or #cosplay? Cosplay Prop Shop created this set of 3 videos showing the process of creating a highly detailed gauntlet using the following materials:
- Different thicknesses of EVA Foam.
- LED lighting.
- Translucent plastic cut from a Coca-Cola bottle.
- Cardboard. (Please note that this could also be done with EVA Foam.)
- Wood-working glue.
- Nylon webbing.
- Elmer’s glue.
- Faux fur.
Please note the following tools that are used to construct the gauntlet:
- Heavy-duty scissors (instead of blades) for cutting the EVA Foam.
- Hot glue & hot glue gun.
- Dremel with various attachments.
- Small paint brushes.
- Sewing machine.
