Components for Nazgul costume gauntlet I made for Halloween this year.
Other ingredients used:
- pair of leather gloves (any dark gloves will do)
- needle and thread
- strips of fabric (any)
- glue (epoxy for printed parts, leather glue)
- thick acrylic paints (black, silver, gold in my case)
Print enough scales to cover the fingers (5-7 per finger in my case), one piece of claw, nail and long scale for each finger. Glue the thumb and knuckle spikes onto the base parts. Check the blender source file for more details about how the parts come together.
Ideally, sand and paint all parts before attaching. I didn't do that properly for all pieces and regretted it.
I've sewn the scales onto strips of fabric and glued the strips to glove fingers. You can also try sewing the pieces directly - it's a pain, but they will hold better. If you have a glue that can bind the printed parts to the glove well enough, you can try that as well.
The larger parts, like wrist elements and knuckle guard are sewn directly to the glove.
- I'd like to add more components, especially on the thumb side
- It's also missing the part that goes over your forearm
- The knuckle guard is a pain to print since it has so little bed-touching points
- The parts could use a better method of attaching to the glove
