Picture of how to build jango fett's arm gauntlets for super cheap
I was looking at jango fett costumes on this website and saw that not many of them had the gauntlets that are on his arms.So I thought I'd try to make some, so here we go I'm going to show you how I did it. :)

supplies

1. Suave shampoo bottle
2.craft knife( or pocket knife )
3.black spray paint( or you choice of color )
4.miscellaneous objects( below are the things I used )
A. bamboo
B.card board( I used a irish spring soap box )
C.electrical tape
D. bottle cap

So the first thing that I did was cut the top and bottom of the bottle off and then I cut a line down the middle.Oh ya I almost forgot to tell you this is my first instructable.

Your pretty much finished! But if your really up for a challenge try to make one for each arm.

Actually not a bad idea. I'll have to consider that.

pretty cool though this is technically a vambrace not a gauntlet (armored glove with a cuff)

Good job on it; but slow down on the painting and go for light even coats with final touch ups with a brush & paint

paint them silver and add a grappling hook
Will do and this was my first ible so that's why it's bad.
