Make the Predator wrist Blades - Part 5

In this part of the tutorial I just show you an overview of the gauntlet I made for this project. You are free to make any kind of gauntlet that works for you. You have a lot of options as to what materials you use and how you make it.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here



The craft foam

I am using three sheets of craft foam to make my gauntlet. They are 12 inches by 18 inches. And the 18 inches from side to side is perfect. Because that is exactly the right size to wrap around both the mechanism and my wrist. Notice how there is a slot cut in this assembly so the trigger can slide through.

This is the exact package of craft foam that I use for this gauntlet.





Apply glue to top

I applied glue only to the top of the box assembly. This is important. Don't glue the craft foam to the sides of the box.

And for the same reason as why we taped the lid down. This way we can still cut that tape and open the box if we need to repair anything inside.

Glue it down, allowing the trigger to slide up through the slot.







Add rubber band

And then replace those toothpicks and the rubber band for the trigger.







Put your arm on it

Now, we can finish it off with a couple of velcro strips. The two arrows show you where I put them.







Put it on

Ok! Put it on!






Yay! You are done. You now have the Predator Wrist Blades! And they really work!
