got some work done on his fp esb guantlets, i wanted to show em off some...
(Thanks for hosting those pics babe)
Yeah, I finally getting around to working on my gauntlets, in preparation to getting married.
The gauntlets are FettPride… I think I bought them in early 2006… The uppers are fiberglass; the lower half is vacuumed formed. I’ve bondoed the seam and epoxied nuts on the back of the whip-cord-thingy and the hose-attachment. I than used (stainless steel) alien head screws to mount them to the main body.
I know the metal push buttons are not 100% screen accurate (OH the SHAME!), but I thought they looked a lot better than the toggle switches I see all too often. Also the black push button is not correct, but it’s the closet I could find. Maybe one day I’ll up grade.
The left gauntlet is in the same “almost ready to paint” condition, I just haven’t had time to take pics… sad thing is… when I add up the gauntlets, LEDs, switches, metal darts, metal “rocket” and machined metal flame thrower… I’ve got well over $600 invested.
PLEASE somebody put me out of my misery before I spend any more money on this costume!!!
looking good bro!
Get to painting bro. Looking forward to seeing them to completion.
Nice work so far, man...money? thats what this board does, sucks your money! Nice work dood! :thumbsup
