    I've checked eBay, anyone got any homemade gauntlets they want to sell?

    Be patient. It's best to get to know the other members first and get acquainted before jumping in.

    Ah, get to know, schmet to know.

    I'd like to have a Jango costume by Halloween, and I'm already closing in on the armor and a helmet via eBay.

    I've got a flight suit, I can buy the boots, belts, blasters and vest.

    So, essentially, all I'm missing is gauntlets and a jet pack...which is where all you wonderful people come in.

    I've got some misceallaneous gauntlet inquiries:

    -Has anyone used the foam disk-shooting Jango toy as part of their gauntlets? I know it's not a full encompassing gauntlet, but it could be grafted or attached on top of a pre-made gauntlet.

    -Do most people use the "clam" type of gauntlet, with the ablility to open and close the gauntlet around the arm? Or do people slide them on? Any prefereces?

    Personally, I'd never use the toy gauntlet. Maybe for a child's costume, MAYBE.
    The majority of gauntlet kits are clam shell. I attached a continuous hinge to mine, like you see in the Jango pic. You can buy those at Home Depot.

    Why would you advocate against the toy gauntlet?

    Size and accuracy to start with. It's built for a child and not screen accurate. For a child's suit, sure. It could be trainer gauntlets, like the lightsabers the kids used in AOTC.

    I just stopped by target and that blue light hose looks pretty good but a bit too blue. If it could be gutted and darkened, it'd look pretty close.

    Jul 3, 2003, 5:41 AM - Merged: Well- whattaya know. (re: Hoses) #160

    I was dying my jumpsuit with blue dye (the first attempt came out too purple) and before dumping out the dye (Rit Royal Blue) I decided, on a whim, to toss in my roll of hose for a while. It was the kind you get at Home Depot- clear, with the criss-cross pattern of reinforcing threads running through it. After about three hours, I pulled it out, and it had taken the dye beautifully! I rinsed it out well, and hung it to dry. After it had dried, I took a wet white rag to it, to see how permanent it would be. I scrubbed it for a few seconds, and the rag didn't stain a bit. The color is too bright a blue, of course, but I'll add some black and throw it in for another soak. Pictures to come.

    I would say more of a copper color.

    Yep, I'd say more of a copper color.
    If I'm not mistaken, Boba's is gold.

    Jan 4, 2004, 3:07 AM - Merged: right gauntlet dart spike? #168

    I recently bought some spikes for my custom and I noticed one of the spike types looks a lot like the tip of the dart on Jango's right gauntlet. What do you guys think? I think it looks pretty close so I am going to try and make one with the spike.

    Is the one you picked up squared, or is it just the lighting?

    Its round. Just a lighting thing. I got it at eleathersupply.com click here to check them out. Scroll down and you will see them. They are called rivet spikes and it is the 1 1/4" and they cost &#36;5.99 for ten. I made one last night. Not perfect but pretty good. The fins are cut from sintra the main body is a pen.
