Take your soccer socks and your scissors and cut off the piece where your foot goes. Now that that's off, take the other piece and cut that in half horizontally. They should go on your arms and go up to about your elbows. If your arms are to long use two socks and cut one arm out per sock.

This is cool. I've made batman gauntlets before, but only out of cardboard.
P.S. you can tell the first two people that posted comments have a batman profile picture.
I didn't expect much, with cardboard glued to shin guards. But i'm not going to lie, this looks real good. I might even make this.
