A quick update.

Making less progress than I would like, but I figured I'd post some of the pieces I've got partially painted.

I'm going to be attaching the plates to a kind of shell of electrical tape that I can slip on over the leather glovesso I don't have to sew anything to the gloves themselves.

I have yet to do the arm pieces, and I'll post pictures of the helm as soon as I have the base coat of paint down.
The plates for the back of the hand; the ones on the left are the basic cutouts, and the ones on the right are folded and Mod Podged.
Ready to paint!

The first coat of paint.  Need to do another and then add some black acrylic for wear.

I've still got a long way to go between painting and attaching the pieces to the glove, but I'm still hoping it'll be done in time for Sunday.  Wish me luck!


  1. You can do it! I think you have the right angles and shapes down, it's just putting it all together that must take freaking forever

  2. This is really cool, I wanna see it completed! I've never tried anything like this before myself.
