Re: Here's my idea for gloves


I was thinking of using some type of composite or somewhat hard rubber for arm guards. It would be strong & somewhat resiliant, to absorb some of the impact without holding a dent.

Re: Here's my idea for gloves


I've thought about that a few times too. I've got an old Teflon type cutting board that I just don't use. Actually the wooden one You see in some of the pictures is our cutting board of choice.

I've thought of cutting it to size and then sanding a curve to it on the top and bottom, to give it shape and so it wraps the forearm better.

It'll certainly be lighter than metal.

Re: Here's my idea for gloves


I also heard of someone taking a 32 oz. molded plastic cup & cutting arm guards from that. It would already be curved & pretty hard plastic. I have some large green cups that would be perfect. All you would have to do is make a template out of paper, trace it onto the cup face, cut it out & cut the grooves, dremel or sand the corners smooth & paint. Voila, pretty cheap forearm guards. I'm gonna try this method sometime soon... However, I've been really pleased with my metal ones.

I have a template that I posted somewhere here and at the LOH (in the costuming tutorials) of the measurements I use for the armor pieces. I took them from a resin prop that one of the bros here sent me.

Re: Here's my idea for gloves


To use PVC, the outside diameter of the pipe would have to be something like 24" or something, so that the curveature wasn't too extreme.

The more common large variety of PVC is usually no more than 6".

The forearm plate isn't curved that much is it?
