I would SO use it with a cosplay of something from Slytherin (Harry Potter) hahahha robably of Sissy or Bella. I realy love them both, so, who knows? Maybe I can buy somthing like this from you XD It's incredible, really. But I wish to see something more inspired on phoenixes. Can you imagine something not so 'carneval', but with red, orange and yellow? That'd be fantastic too :D oh! and an Iron man-inspired too! Can oyu imagine it?? Silver, Gray and Wine red/red??? Wow *-* I'm looking forward to it! I bet it'd be spectacular!!!

Best regards,

The Artist thought this was FAIR
9 out of 9 deviants thought this was fair.

Vision: Nicely done, and a very feminine version of a "militia gauntlet." The pattern of colors was well chosen, as was the layout of bead/chain work across the hand. However, no one that needed to do anything strenuous with their hands would ever wear this. I'm sure it's what your customer wanted, but it's not really appropriate to call it a militia gauntlet.

Originality: Love the combination of textures that you used. The design isn't the most original, but it turned out well - as a complete and interesting piece of work.

Technique: What I can see looks well done, especially if you made each of the scales by hand as well. Not particularly difficult from a technical standpoint, just tedious. Nice combination of materials.

Impact: Striking, interesting, but rather impractical. Typical combination of fantasy and reality in an unrealistic fashion.

What happens when you put your arm to your side? Did you use some kind of rubber rings to hold the gauntlet to the arm?

Paracord rope for a tight, snug fit. they dont drop if you take the time to lace them tightly

I didn't make them. I don't have the tools, but I know how to do it, it's just I don't have that much time to handmake then so I order through a fabricator
