Ringwraith gauntlets, construction process. The base of the gauntlets were taken from a child's knight costume playset (at that time, I could only find a left-hand gauntlet, and had to modify one to fit the right hand). The finger plates were cut individually from black leather, and dry-brushed with silver paint to give the illusion of old metal. The plates were then stitched to a black glove base.as was the wrist gauntlet after it had also been painted. The whole gauntlet is nicely articulated, and gives the look of plate metal without being stiff and sharp.
