Batgirl Schumacher/ birds of prey gloves


Hey everyone, I'm new here so forgive me if this has been talked about before. I can't seem to search anything for some reason. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has information on how to go about making the gloves for batgirl. I can't find anything on line about the processs whatsoever. I want to make something like the gloves in this link: http://mattmunson.blogspot.com/2013/08/batman-hybrid-forever-gloves.html

Thanks for that link, but I'm looking for any info or tutorials on how to make gloves similar to these, not buy them pre made. I can't find anything on lining and attaching gauntlets to a pair of gloves.

Do you have a sewing machine? Do you already have gloves? Normally you have to create patterns,sew all parts together,screw in the fins and you are done. Most important, how should your finished gloves look like? The ones in your link are made from leather, some kind of hard rubber fins and for a male costume, for the Batgirl costume you will need a much more opera style glove made from fine leather and well sewn.Also the fins have to be much smaller and thinner.I recommend to check with google for tutorials about sewing leather gloves.

Re: Batgirl Schumacher/ birds of prey gloves


I have a sewing machine. I figured I would use Olympia 103 gloves. I've been all over google which is why I've finally put it out to BOTB. I can't find tutorials on how to make the ribbing/ tubing on the wrist or how to attach gauntlets to the gloves.

Re: Batgirl Schumacher/ birds of prey gloves


You will need black, thin leather for the gauntlet.You need to make pattern for the bat and the gauntlet using the measurements of your arms. The ribbing is done by having a layer of leather on top, then some foam, then the lining, and just sew over it,
 the foam will be pushed together by the force of the sewing machine and the ribbing will be the final result. OR you can cut out ribbing from foamies (strong foam) and then sewing parallel to them while sewing the 2 layers together. As alternative you could use rubber tubes (small) or a cord from the right size to sew in. Then you have to attach the gauntlets to the gloves , either by sewing on the inside (turning the gloves inside out first) or with velcro. You may have to remove some material from the Olympia gloves first , depending on the model you own. The bat can be done from Rubber or Leather.
