About: Im a builder,carver,magician you name it and I've probably attempted it I love tech hence the name I also really love the outdoors.I camp play games and do really anything that I have time for.And I also loo...

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 ) 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.

Step 1:

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:

Now were going to paint it! I used black spray paint but you can use different colors.

Step 7:

It is probably going to need two coats like I did.

Step 8:

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

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