Just finished up my JD gauntlets today!!!

He did an awesome job on the fiberglass. I trimmed them, wrapped with leather, dyed, painted, weathered, rub n buffed, added the ribbed section and
voila!!! :::

Hey,! I gotta set just like that! :lol:

You did a great job finishing them up. How's the fit?
The chest armor I got from you in trade, finished up SWEET! I can't wait to show this costume at CIII.

*expletive deleted* Wow.... !!!! ;)

I sure hope your wife is entering the costume contest! From what I've been seeing - she'd be the winner hands down! :D

Thanks guys!! I appreciate it :)


Judz, they fit really well. She's a little shorter than the average woman so the gauntlets are a tad long on her arms but they're o.k.! I actually cut the left gauntlet clear down to the long box on top and the way I made the cuff part slip over, it stops when it hits a certain point.


Oh yes, she's in the costume contest!! This has been our huge motivation for her :)

Is she in the "Costume Pagent" on Friday from 3-5 pm. (Right when the TDH photo is being taken?) :( Or is she in Sunday's "Costume Cabaret?"

If it's Friday, I'm gonna be torn... group photo or cheer on a fellow Zammer!!! :cry :( :cry

but there isn't much response. I know several people won't be able to make the photo because of this. Kathy and I would sure like to be there but I'm gonna have to say the costume contest is more important :zam

Actually, think I'd rather cheer on a fellow Zammer! :D If I can get into the room that is... if I remember last time it filled up rather quickly! *keeps fingers crossed*

Awesome, Cal! When is it going to be done? When will you have some good photos of this version? Still have the Zam spot open on the MG project...
