How to make MoS Gauntlets by InKibus How to make MoS Gauntlets by InKibus
More tutorials!
I am planning to get all these do ASAP, don't stop me now. ;)
These of for Mouth of Sauron Gaunlets.

I have to correct my typo on the loaded piece, it is 8 LAYERS, not 7.
Anyhow, make 8 overlapping layers, pin them overlapping, and determine your arm length. These piece can range from a foot wide and long to a little less. Be liberal, trim off excess is easier than re-attaching.
The define the curves.
The curve will curve away from you body, in other words, the shark finny pattern aim towards your back.
You will have to define and shape for you own body.
Mkae them out of denimn of a thinck material.
After that, transfer the pattern liberally to faux brown and beat up looking leather.
If you have enough real leather, kudos to you.
Stich the leather to the mock-ups, this adds weight.
Attach and be sur eit still fits good.
Make 5 plates for the lower layers out off fiber-glass board. They can be uneven, and also bleach-jug pieces work well, just sand paper for a nicing toothing so paint will take. The plate ';points' also curve away from your body.
The final one near your wrist is somewhat triangular and pointed,
Pre spray with grey krylon, then add appropriate color with folk art-wear paints. Stitch on, it won't require much. You might have to punch a few holes in the plates to make it easier to stitch on though.
When you determined your underside is good and even too,
add grommets.
It's about 3 on each side, 6 for each plates.
First soak the grommet sin an antiquing solution, if they are not dark already.
Then find a loooong shoelace ot several, or some leather cording.
Use baby pins to hold it up near you armpits, these do not attach to a costume otherwise.

THe must be quite flexible if you will be tossing Mithril coats around.

:giggle: THank you! Even if people do make this costume, it might show them how to do something similar. :nod:

I usually like to take the ideas from tutorials and put my own little twist on 'em - I get the basic idea from the tutorial, but end up doing my own thing.

Some people may do it another way, but I have to say, yours was a lot easier to understand than most. I think its because you let the pictures do the talking. :) Great work though, I love your how-to's!!

Thnaks for saying that! I was afraid the pics where to much, and people would want more text and descriptions.
Honestly, it came natural to me, and it's not elaborate, like plated armour or a ball gown. So, I hope the pictures speak volumes to anyone trying to visualize this. :nod:

I think you did a very good job balancing descriptions with photos :)

Its interesting to know how you make these costumes...and most of the materials are things anyone could get (a chunk of wood or a coat hanger)
