gloves just venting


man i cant belive my luck as of late tried bidding on over three sets of gloves on ebay out bid by a another bat brother another was pulled off before it ended another one lost. i cant belive it i paid for someone to make me some over 4 months ago never recived them just keep getting working on it. i understand that these things take time i really do its just with halloween comming up and events i have schedule for childrens hospitals im just getting frustrated with it all.

  i want to go to jv now but doubt he would have the time to get them to me by halloween plus i just dont have enough money as i put out 200 for my other pair.
  
 Im sure you all can relate to these problems being costume makers and fellow bat brothers. so now i wait till luck or fate work out and i can get some used ones at a decent price on ebay till then i wait for my other set. thanks allfor just listening

they look like decent gloves. you can always upgrade the fins.

Re: gloves just venting


dude, that sucks... maybe next time you're bidding on a pair you want on ebay you could post in the trading forum saying "will you guys please let me get these gloves, i need them ASAP and every time i bid another brother outbids me." it's possible that the other brothers bidding are unaware of your predicament or even that it's you bidding against them.

i bet if you asked for people to back off they probably would. everyone here knows what it's like to need just one more thing for a costume and getting down to the wire trying to find it. gloves are pretty essential to a batman costume, i'm sure others have been where you are now and will be understanding if you explain how much you need to get them.

good luck man, i hope you can find something soon. :)

Re: gloves just venting


Hey guys. Those were my gloves in that auction. It was my first attempt and I wasn't a BOTB member then. They were really nice looking/feeling gloves but the fins could certainly have been better. :) They went for WAY too high IMO, but the high bidder never paid.

I just sculpted a new set of Returns style fins this week that are going to be awesome. I want to do resin castings of them. Maybe they'll be good enough for future trades? Just need to make some gloves to put them in.


Sorry about the bad luck on getting gloves for Halloween bro. I should have offered them here first. I'm new and automatically think EBAY when I need some fast cash. I'm screwed for this year too, that's why I'm selling what I have. I figure I can upgrade everything for next year.

If you had bought mine, the fins couldn't have been upgraded anyway because they're very securely glued in place. You'd destroy the gauntlets getting the old fins out.
