Ok, so I'm sure many of you know Gabriel-the-prop-maker, better known as SquallLeonhart86 from youtube or gambit86 from the cosplay forums.

Anyways, I've been checking out his Altair hidden blade and gauntlet and have decided on making one myself. Here are some pictures of his accomplishments:

Anyways, I've started on the gauntlet today and I have found that it IS do-able and is in fact quite easy as long as you have patience and a steady hand.

Has anyone else tried anything like this? (other than of course the one and only sandman seven http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif )

PS

If you can't see the images right-click and do "view image" and the images should come up.

Ooh, that looks almost exactly the same as the actual one!

Especially the first pic, with the straps and stuff...looks exactly like a picture of Alta´r's.

Well, if it isn't moqqy.

Always cheering people up with his all caps sarcasm, lol.

Either what you said, or he could have just done technical theater for over seven years and this kind of thing is easy for him to do in like a week. *hint* *hint*

Yeah, I'm almost done the armor of the gauntlet (yes, I don't have too much spare time) but I'll post images of those when they're painted.

and yes, Yatzee is truly hilarious.

Well, you cut out the design that you want for the armor from foam. Then you overlay that cut-out onto another piece of foam. That gives the armor a raised effect.

BTW, Water probably won't destroy it, but I would not recommend getting it wet.
