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. :)


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.

Now what you won't to do is make sure it fits. Fortunately it fit me so lets move on.

Step 2:

Now were goin' to start gluing on the little junk thats listed in the supplies.

Step 3:

Now were going to get into the tricky part. Depending on your bottle size cut out small rectangles all the the same size and rap them in a thin rap of electrical tape.

Step 4:

Now we are going to cut out a long strip of the card board from the soap box and rap it in tape.Now cut little strips as long as the long strip is wide and rap them with tape.( hard to say ) And then cut two circles out about an inch wide wide in the diameter.

Step 5:

Now glue both of the things we just did on where ever you would like.

Step 6:

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.
its really good actually
