    you know TK-409, that is where i got the idea for the gloves. now its my time to hunt down the dye. is it hard to make the gloves...i mean, i know you buy the gloves (from your site TK-409), dye them grey, and stich the white parts on....but...i realy suck at sewing...but, is it that hard? i can do simple stuff like the ankle peices on Boba...but....when you hear gloves.....oh man...i just don't want to go there. you guys pray for me....

    hey guys....i got some great news....i found some intown gloves!!!! i went to party city thinking they would have something, and sure enough, i found some accurate boba gloves. i found some white gloves and, they even have the button on them!!!!! i had also had a hard time looking for some dye...and, i just went accross the street to AC Moore, and sure enough, i found some grey pearl RIT dye!!!! i dyed the gloves, and they turned out great!!! luckly i had some white fabric, and some foam padding. i had used the padding inside my helmet. anyway, i cut the padding on my band saw into some thin strips. i traced my hand, and finger patterns onto the padding. i cut the padding a little smaller than the cloth. i then sewed the padding, and the cloth onto the gloves. man, they turned out great!!! i then weathered them with some oil paint....really got them looking good. so, now, i have a $10 pair of boba gloves that are really accurate!!!! i am soooooo happy!!!
