Tutorial: Budget Gauntlets Made from Aluminum Cans

If you’re looking for a very inexpensive way to have #gauntlets for your #cosplay or #Halloween #costume, here’s a video tutorial posted by a Korean #cosplayer who made metal gauntlets using aluminum cans! Great recycling! (The video has no audio dialog, but includes comments in both English and Korean.)

Please note that these are not going to be extremely strong: the aluminum used in beer and soft drink cans is extremely thin. While it’s very easy to work with, making folds (as he shows in the video) could result in the aluminum splitting.

We advise caution in handling the cut aluminum: the edges could cause cuts to the skin.
