    Yeah, you are probably right about the ROTJ gloves but I was just lookin at a pic of the 1st prepro suit (the one w/the eyes painted on the helmet) and it looks like hes got slightly different color gloves than the other prepro suit. Maybe it just looks that way in this certain pic but I dunno.

    Sure. I think you've peaked everyone's curiosity with just what gloves you're talking about. Send it to me at caudillppd@peoplepc.com

    Just to clarify this, no version of the brown Pre-production gloves were used in any of the movies, just the gray ones in one shade or another.

    I don't think sending Bobafettish pictures of gloves is a good idea you see, as the name implies, he has a thing for hands, and you would only be contributing to his "problem"

    Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids.

    If it is a Pre-pro picture that you are using for reference, than Fettcicle is the man to see as he is one of the few who has a completed version of that particular costume.

    I know the prepro gloves werent used in the movies, I've been an insane Boba Fett fan for many a year and I would have noticed.lol

    The light grey gloves I've been speaking of are the ROTJ gloves seen in MoM that seem to be lighter than the movie version. People have pointed out to me that they are probably the same gloves, just faded.

    I'm not making the brown gloves for my suit
    (not yet anyway) but you said if I've seen Fett wearing any other gloves to let you know. They look darker to me but like I said, it could be this certain pic.

    Here's the pic AOD was referring to. It is the Pre-Pre-Production suit.

    The glove color from that PrePro suit does look slightly darker than the brown on the PrePro suit we are accustomed to seeing, PrePro 2. However, it again can be contributed to different painting/washing. Also note that picture is taken outside in daylight.You can even clearly see the ab plate is a different color than the upper armor.

    off topic but i think i stumbled onto something...the dent pattern on those knees look exactly like the ESB pattern.the right knee has one dent near the taper and one on the inside top.the left has a split at the bottom of the taper and another dent on the inside.could they have been repainted and used for the ESB suit?i have been looking for clear pics of the dent pattern but all the ESB pics are so grainy.in this pic they look very clear.

    sorry for hijacking the thread

    By the way...you could tell that the gloves were actually brown Jersey gloves that you could find a pair for $1 at Dollar General, Family Dollar or Dollar Tree, which I think that you could find them at the first one I mentioned before. I think that they were used before, because they look lighter in color or probably they lighten them up a little for the PreProd. model, that then they added the same finger and forehand add-ons like in ESB/ROTJ style glove, but tan color.

    The emblems in the forehand are actual military DCU (Desert Combat Uniform) color, FORSCOM symbol that you could find at a military surplus store. Try www.rangerjoes.com if they have them.

    Well, I have a correction to make on the gloves on the second Prepro suit: It has a snap instead of a button and eyelet. Either I forgot that or I am an idiot who thought the 2nd prepro had a button and eyelet.

    Here is the proof:


    The 3rd prepro has the button and eyelet that we see on the ESB and ROTJ gloves (MoM & AoSW). Proof of the button and eyelet on the third prepro:



    All you prepro guys need snaps now!!

    I can't seem to find a pic showing the back of the 2nd prepro gloves clearly. I am working on adjusting one of those images now to see if something shows up.

    The patch is FORSCOM, but it's just the regular subdued patch. In the 80's, the desert wasn't a major theater and they didn't have desert patches back then. Only since Desert Storm has the military started mass producing DCU patches. And the other patch (hourglass) is the 7th Infantry Division, again, regular subdued. 7th ID was deactivated in the early 90's. Right now, as far as I know, only a small detatchment of 7th ID are active at FT Carson, CO. Sorry for the history lesson. Look at any surplus store in your area. You can probably buy the patches for a buck each.

    That's the one. I would suggest a surplus store. They'll be cheaper and you'll have the patches right then.

    Yep, that's the 7th Infantry Division (Light). That's the other one you want, but subdued (green and black). That picture is of the class A patch.
    How much are they asking? If it's more than a couple of dollars, don't get it. If there are no military surplus stores in your area, I'll stop by the one here. He has stacks of them for like a buck each(don't quote me). If not, I can go to clothing sales (I'm in the Army) and buy some.
    If anybody wants them let me know.

    I got my Boba gloves today, or at least a base for the Boba gloves. Parade gloves, no snap or button for 2 bucks from the army surplus store in town. They were selling them cheap because their mediums run a bit small. Fit me fine though. I'm off to work then to buy dye and other materials. I'll try to post progress pics as I go. The Summer of Fett 2003 begins. Boots are next I guess.

    *UPDATE*

    Dyed the gloves and they turned out a little dark after just seconds in the dye. I think it will fade though. I tried sewing last night and it is not for me, so I'm going to cheat. I bought some of that iron in seam and will be trying that in a matter of minutes. Hopefully it will work and all I'll have to sew is the lines in the top of the hand. Pics to follow sometime in the near future.

    They were asking 3 bucks each, but I won't need these patches until well after I'm finished with my first pair of gloves(ROTJ) and go on to make the other versions.

    On the subject of the Pre-Pro gloves, I've always thought that they were not the same parade gloves as the ESB/ROTJ base glove. The material texture and the cut always made them appear to me as if they were some type of suede glove, maybe a work glove or driving glove.

    It seems that we are making a distinction between a 1st version of the Pre-Pro gloves, and a 2nd version. I think it's the 1st version that I've always thought of as the suede-type gloves. If there actually are two versions of the Pre-Pro gloves, then the 2nd version may be same base gloves, or they may be the standard brown jersey gardening gloves.

    However, after studying the pics in Chronicles, I've fairly convinced myself that none of the Pre-Pro gloves are brown jersey gardening gloves. As I mentioned above, the material texture and cut seem to be different from the standard jersey gloves. Also, the "cuff" of the gloves seems to be inconsistent with the standard jersey gloves--the jersey ones always have an elastic-type "stretchy" cuff, while the pics in Chronicles suggest that such a cuff does not exist on the Pre-Pro gloves. This may mean that the parade gloves were used as a base, but looking at the texture and cut of the base gloves, I still doubt this.

    I may need to go home, dig out Chronicles, fire up my cheapo scanner and see if I can demonstrate my theories.

    My apologies for the ramble. I've been wanting to have this discussion for some time!

    Ok, it works. In the time it took me to sew half a finger I have "glued" two. I bought this stuff called Steam-A-Seam2 fusible tape for 4.50 at Hobby Lobby. I trace a finger, cut it out, cut the fusible tape in half (its 1/4 of an inch, too wide for fingers and the added batting) stick it to the glove and finger and iron... the only problem im having is that the fingers are fraying on the sides. Looks good though. Cost of gloves was 2 bucks, 3 for the white material and 4.50 for the tape. Fett gloves for 10 bucks...

    I dont have a digi cam so I'm going to finish one of the gloves tonight and have a friend take pics so I can post them tomorrow or Friday. Another friend just told me there is something I can buy that makes material not fray. So I may be doing these over.
